Check your definition. Since a lumen is a measure of luminous flux, a candlepower is a measure of luminous intensity, and a foot-candle is a measure of illuminance, you've just crammed three physically impossible equivalences in one sentence. That's actually kind of impressive...
And the ironic bit is, you posted that embarrassing nugget in an effort to "correct" deeluxx, who actually had it right; since there's 4×pi (=12.57) steradians in a sphere, a 1cd isotropic emitter would be 12.57lm. (If anyone's really bothered by the extra .57, well, a candle's not quite isotropic anyway; deeluxx was probably taking into account the downward light absorbed by the candle itself. ;-) )

It doesn't say it in the description, But the picture says it all.
I mean , from what I gather this is some kind of LSD dispenser. has to be that way for this thing to have ever been reviewed favorably right?
If It doesn't do that then it should have a little writing on the front of the box that say's LSD not included. and then in the instructions "recommended use with LSD or best results."
something along those lines.
Also - I believe the designer of the packaging for this particular product is H.R. Puff N Stuff's Biggest Fan.
