I stopped at Walmart on the way home from work tonight and saw this really interesting thing. It was a mason jar that had a mechanical firefly in it, and when you pushed the little button, the firefly would light up and bounce around on this wire as though you had captured a real live firefly.
As a kid, in the summer there were lots of fireflies flying around the lake by my house. Now the only place most people will see them is in a glass jar at Walmart. What a shame.
