    I would have to say the car phone. You remember them phones that were built in cars? Wow. Who ever thought of that had to be an insurance agent. lol

    Rap music, end of story. No, I'm kidding, there's a few rap songs that are okay, but the rest are just Retards Attempting Poetry. For the worst invention ever, I am going to start with Facebook, and then I'm going to pry your heart out and say Farmville. Then I am going to squeeze it and make it drip down your expensive flooring tiles by giving you a link to a TIME article of fifty of the worst inventions ever. Take that Facebook; and Zynga with your stupidly repetitive and useless games too!

    There was Harry Potter Vibrating Broom Stick sold to children before being pulled off the market. A vibrating stick designed to be wedged in between the legs of small children.


    ...It's messed up how stupid people can be...

    I would have to say the walkable bath tub. Yes. They made a mattress type walking water bed bath tub. Who would fund THAT?

    I'm not really sure if I can pinpoint one thing...but whatever that one thing is...that pink face ring in your picture comes pretty close.

    I'm not sure I could top that one in the photo.  I guess I lean toward thinking that medication that makes women's eyelashes grow (or look long, or something) so they don't need mascara is about as bad as it gets.  (One of the possible side effects is something like brown spots on blue eyes.)   (I can't help but wonder what, exactly, that thing in the picture is supposed to do for someone....    keep their hair out their spaghetti???  )

    Actually I kind of like the face guard for eating sloppy noodles in your photo.  I think anything with a suffix of cozy is pretty useless.  I am referring to the toaster-cozy, coffee-maker-cozy, and blender-cozy.  The fabric cozy could catch on fire when the electrical devices heat up.

    That picture is hilarious. I would say one of the worst inventions was the shake weight. Along with many other silly exercise tools.
