H4SlC3F

Let's not pretend: we're all in the dark when it comes right down to it.

Q

Nabokov wrote in "Speak, Memory," his 1951 memoir, that "Our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness."

This little keychain light glows green — or blue or orange, if you prefer — when everything and everyone else has given up the ghost.

After The Apocalypse, cockroaches will glow like this but for now you'll have to make do with storebought.

$24.99.

A Trittium-powered keychain fob. 3He has a half life of 12.3 years and that means that your fob would be 1/4th as bright in 1/4th of a century.
