Disappearing Civil Liberties Mug

The Unemployed Philosophers' Guild sells a mug showing the full text of the Bill of Rights. When you pour hot water into it, the rights eliminated by the U.S.A. T.R.A.I.T.O.R. Act disappear. $13. Out of stock until March. [nicki]

Great idea, but ...

I was given one of these as a gift some time back. It's a great idea, but not very well implemented. It didn't work uniformly from the very beginning. The text is actually on a stick-on label, so care in washing is important if you want your vanishing rights to last (don't think about that statement too hard!). I never put mine in the dishwasher, but even so, the label started to act even more weird, so I ended up pulling it off.

It's a quality mug, though ... but $13 is a bit much for a plain white mug.
