My wacky product find of the week is a bit of an oddity.
It seems to be a combination mixer and coat hanger. I am not quite sure what to say about it. So I thought I'd let the merchant do the talking. The merchant calls this the "Practical Coat Hanger"..."To use for your wardrobe and in the extreme necessities in your kitchen!" This hanger can be found at Singulier, which I found through the always great Mental Floss.
Well, I am not sure what type of comments this nifty device can inspire. Would you use this? For what? What type of nutjob comes up with this? read more »
Here's my wacky product find of the week: Mr. P Lamp
When you flip his switch (and yes, the switch is exactly where you think it is), and turn him on, his whole head lights up as if in embarrassment. Mr. P comes equipped with a lampshade you can use to put over his head or tilt slightly so he can peek out. The switch is made of rubber. (Product here or here via Blavish)
So, what do you think of this product? Any funny comments you can think of for this one? read more »
With Halloween behind us, it's nigh time we take a good long look at ourselves and separate the hype from the actual very serious science of hunting vaporous spirits and capturing evidence of them on tape so we can prove once and for all that there is life after death, or at the very least, Photoshop. read more »Ghost hunting is a fairly new field that's only existed for a few decades in its modern form. Before digital cameras and EMF detectors, ghost hunters were forced to hunt ghosts with Davy Crocket muskets and a large flour sack . The flour sack could be used to toss onto the ghost, and, if captured, their trusty mule would then haul to the beet patch until such time as your resident Leprechauns would have a chance to scourge all the evil out of him. Ghosts had it pretty rough back then.
We are going to try something new on our site.
Folks have asked us why we don't link to some of the great content on the web. Our response was that since we're a site focused on inventions, innovations and interesting ideas, many of the links that we like were not quite on topic of our site.
But with reflection, we realized that with so much great content floating around, we should share some of it with you. Thus, we are going to post random links from time to time of what we think is worthy of sharing.
So to start off this series, we share with you here some of our Favorite Halloween Links: read more »

I love Halloween. Seriously, as a kid, what is better than knocking at someone's door and having someone hand you candy. When my oldest son was two years old, he got the hang of trick-or-treating a little too quickly. At the age of one, my youngest child had more candy from trick-or-treating than I ate the first 20 years of my life (no, he didn't eat all of the candy, he just accumulated it). read more »I love the decorations too. I came across this inflatable haunted house that looks like a giant playhouse. Its better than all those other inflatables they have out for Halloween because it does more than just sits there looking spooky. You can walk (or run) through it.
This is my wacky find of the week:
Yes, for the person with a lot of empty space on their walls, we have the Monthly Doos calendar. (Calendar). The merchant says "Finally, a calendar dedicated to the colorful achievements of man's best friend! "
I am left speechless, so I need your help in coming up with some funny comments for this product. Is this wacky or wonderful?

I am in the market for a travel case for my laptop. It was pretty clear from visting a few stores this weekend that the utilitarian and very boring black bag is pretty much what's available. How amazingly hohum! Why is it that the mass merchandisers all carry the same items?
I decided not to purchase anything and look for some more interesting options on line. How fortunate for me that in checking out one of my favorite websites Attu Sees All this morning, I found an unusual laptop case that I thought was pretty fun. read more »
We all love sodas ... with the possible exception of when we brush our teeth and immediately thereafter drink some Diet Coke (inadvertently creating a taste in our mouth similar to that of shampoo mixed with battery acid). Still, the good stuff can become expensive; what can you do? The obvious answer is, of course, to start buying cheaper pop. read more »
Fart DetectorGoing off to college? Got all the necessary school supplies?
One of my sons is going off to college this year. It got me thinking of what I need to send off with him so that he has everything he needs to be successful in school.
I guess success means different things to different folks. For me, success means the obvious things like my kid does not flunk out. It also means that my kid is popular and know as one of the cool kids and not one of the dorks.
To help him be cool, I came up with some items I am gong to send off with him. I don't think many of the students in his college will have these items, but I am sure they wish they did.
Here's my list of the Things You Can Buy So That You Can Be Cool in College: read more »
