30 Stupidest Inventions Ever

Life Magazine has a hilarious post up featuring what they consider to be the 30 dumbest inventions of all time. When you look through the list, filled with things like the shower hat to the right, you actually start to get an appreciation for things like the Snuggie.

Almost all of the inventions are from the sixties or before, so it's not too shocking that many of them involve cigarettes, including a method for a couple to share a smoke and one for a person to smoke a whole pack at once -oh joy!

I'll take a motorized surfboard! (or Jet ski as we call them today). Also I think having guys in suits demonstrating water inventions is a great idea.

The gun that shoots around corners is making a comeback. The Israelis have a rifle that breaks in the middle (really a pistol on a stock) with an attached mirror and laser site for the same purpose. Also the U.S. is developing a scope with remote eyepiece that allows a soldier to hold their weapon over a wall or around a corner for observation.
