Got a hangover? Perhaps you should try this ice mask. Oh yeah, that' looks like it would totally solve your problem. WebUrbanist has a great list of idiotic inventions from the past, including wooden bathing suits, radio hats and more.

They make fun of surfboards for being used for something other than catching waves, except surfboards, especially longboards, make great paddleboards. They get used for travel between the Hawaiian islands and Duke Kahanamoku saved eight fisherman from a capsized boat by paddling back and forth from the shore. That said, I don't know what to make of a motorized one.

Sign me up for the ice cube mask and bicycle tube floats. The lay flat reading glasses are brilliant! I don't buy hardbacks because they are too heavy to read in bed. The cow catcher for your car is pretty cool too!

Glasses with prisms (not mirrors) work very well for people who are bedridden or with fused necks. For best results, they do need to be fitted by a professional.
