    #27 WTF? This is so stupid I'm kind of in awe.

    • Brutal_Deluxe

      I think this actually made me angry.

      • GeoQuin4

        I've seen a bunch of these around actually; they're kind of ingenius. You can run all you want and a) get their faster because the belt to tire ratio is different than regular jogging, b) you can coast if you need a rest, c) the tires take the shock that your knees, ankles and hips normally would. Granted, it'd be better if there was a way to balance it without the handlebars and you could work your upper body at the same time. Or, you can just buy roller blades.

          Que?

        • http://www.thechive.com AdamBaldick

          Makes sense.

        • my5tika1cll

          I think the off balance would per mote better Core workout though….

    • Karl

      I'd like to put down $100 dollars as a bet that you could get a really decent bike for the cost of this ridiculousness. You'd get there faster, still work out, and not be obligated to kill yourself.

    • Whodoube

      What must someone think of life to invent this machine?

  • Brother Maynard

    #5 is pretty cool.

    • Brutal_Deluxe

      Are there any references to this in the Book of Armaments?

    • flybirdsfly

      Top Gear did this a while ago… Theirs is cooler however.

      Rail Rover Defender 90.

    • peanut3603

      It wouldn't work for long. It would be sliding from side to side on the tracks and would come off very easily.

      True Story

      • Kyle

        They have rail trucks. I see them driving around all the time. It's for maintenance and what not.

        • peanut3603

          Very true sir, but they aren't just the rims. They are specialy mounted on trucks, the wheels can also go up or down. They use the same wheels that trains use, just smaller. I have been in those trucks many times.

    • David DeLane

      Macgyver did it. Season 2, Episode 19

    • Zuke

      You ain't brother maynard.

      Maynard wouldn't find that cool. He says "fuck all you invention maker people and fuck all your inventions."

      He's tired of this bullshit 3-ring circus sideshow, and he wants to see it go down. Suck it down. Flush it down. He can't imagine why you wouldn't welcome any change, my friend.

      Or at least that's what he says while he's watching things die from a good safe distance. Vicariously he lives while the whole world dies. It's cool; you all need it too, don't lie.

      Alright, that's enough for now. After all, there's so much more that beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities.

  • That dude

    Who the hell eats pizza with a fork ?

    • Timmer

      My thoughts exactly

    • Urethra Franklin

      Communists

      • goatpunch

        great name

    • spydermonkey

      Never been to Chicago I take it.

    • Gomer

      The Donald does…

    • FunKiller

      Clean people.

      • Notknowing

        I'm a virgo, I'm a clean freak. But I still use my hands to hold and eat my pizza.

        • FunKiller

          Maybe proper people would've been a better choice of words. I don't always use a fork, but sometimes I just don't want to get my fingers all greezy.

    • mustwashhands

      People with OCD.

      • Anonymous

        A deep dish is the only kind of pizza you should eat with a fork.

    • Tankus

      It honestly depends on the size/weight of the slice…

    • That Other Dude

      Never eaten outside of domino's/pizza hut/papa john's, I take it.
      Most pizzarias have like, 15 types of pizza, like a ziti-covered pizza or a salad pizza. Or if you're in Italy.. It's bad manners to eat pizza with your hands there.

    • MikeOverHere

      Sorry, That dude, not all of us were raised by red neck parents. When you have sex with your sister, does she wear her special Confederate Flag underwear for you?

      • That dude

        All my sister wears is granny panties, sucks big time.

    • April C

      I do if it's scalding hot out of the microwave and I can't pick it up, but can't wait to eat it. But then…I burn my tongue. Vicious circle!

  • Eric

    #6: Or just wear a hoodie with a normal pillow.

    • Dwide_Schrude

      Looks like that giant wall behind her is providing most of the back support.

  • r00s7a

    #11 Oh Paula, looks like you have a screw loose… let me fix that for you.

    • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

      You need a bigger 'tool'.

      Hugs,
      Paula

      • r00s7a

        You got that right… I'd need to strap a 2×4 to my back so I didn't fall in

    • Ecobot

      chit chit… It is on and loaded!

  • SweetDannyJ

    #35 NEED IT!!

  • nola

    all dumb except maybe #7, #8, #16, #25

    • Ninjac

      ur dumb

    • GeoQuin4

      7 and 8 are my favorites. I doubt 25 would actually work.

    • Tom

      I've seen that Bluetooth keyboard before. It is not rechargeable, and the battery is not replaceable. I believe it is supposed to last about 3 months, then be disposed of. GENIUS!

    • sean

      yeah, no way #19 is AT ALL practical or the kind of thing people would buy o.O /sarcasm

  • Verbal_Kint

    #35 I collect these for my boat and try to grab one everywhere I go. I want that.

    • dude 2

      yeah chive, bring back the kcco koozies

    • sheesh

      hipsters…

      • YourMom

        My thoughts exactly fucking hipsters!!!!

  • Lisa

    #8 would be great for my guy friends with big thumbs.

    #9 FUN. All over the drive way? The cul-de-sac? Kids'd be so into that.

    #19 Would be good for dorm rooms and small apartments.

    #34 Some resort some where does this to their beaches?

    • black27696

      #34 I'm wondering if that's used to test tire treads? Like they push it in to sand to get a real world look at how it impacts the ground and then measure it in some fashion?

    • I was...

      Afternoon, Lisa. How's you daughter?

      • I was...

        shit, forgot the 'r'.

      • Lisa

        She is okay. She's taking a new medication and there've been some bumps. Hopefully it'll work better and have fewer side affects.

    • Gonasiphaherpalitis

      Nice to see you have a computer in the kitchen.

      • Greasy Lisa

        Hey Lisa I have a proposition: how's about blow me

  • kal50

    #7 Where do I buy one??!!! Take all my money!

  • Myst

    #11 and#12 are pretty sweet but #18 genius

    • Dara

      #18 There is a band from Limerick in Ireland called Free Beer. Every year at the start of the college semester they catch hundreds of students out like that!

      • Dzodzo

        In Croatia there's a band called Cold Beer (Hladno Pivo)

    • chiver

      #12 is not clear to me what it's doing…can someone explain? is it just taking off the switch plate?

      • jmstech

        It replaces the switchplate to be the way you turn the light on and off.

        • chiver

          thanks!

    • Simon

      #18 Genius is a strong word for an average and old joke. Heck, it was in The Commitments which is, what, 20 years ago.

  • wkdfrog

    #7 #11 shut up and take my money! The rest not so much

  • Manny

    #23 A pillow that can turn you into a cartoon AND wake you up? Genius.

    • tralfaz

      Taaake on meee, taaake meee on….

      • Guest

        Aha, I see what you did there!

        • tralfaz

          I see what you did there!

      • Jebus

        Tralfaz just won all the internets!

  • http://twitter.com/mattywx MattyNYC

    That looks like a bad side effect with #23.

  • misschris

    #3 Yea, that's not at all creepy looking

  • http://bootyblog-randy.tumblr.com Randy

    #23 I don't want fucking light beaming in my eye at 6 in the morning.

    • irish

      i presume it only lights up when the alarm goes off? Duh!!!!

      • jordan

        but what if you lay on your back?

  • dallas_oc

    #33 I already have a hard time avoiding stepping on legos with my bare feet now these clear motha fuckas come out.

    • dallas_oc

      Correction: # 31

      • loves sammiches

        correction #31

        • DIPSHIT

          THEY ARE ICE CUBES!

        • rob

          ice cubes

        • Notknowing

          Either way, I too, hate stepping on lego and/or ice cubes.

    • desonbowenford

      Concerning the "clear legos" I believe those are ice cubes.

    • Amber

      Would it have been too hard to very gently round the corners of legos? I mean, really, does it HAVE to be this sharp ass fucking point of death? I don't think I've ever drawn blood from a lego, but I've gotten damn close.

  • Med

    #25
    No chance it sprays that much. Neat idea, but how hard is it to squeeze a lime/lemon

    • Verbal_Kint

      it's on the internet, it has to be true…

    • Tara

      It is extremely hard to squeeze it and actually get it on what you want lol. Usually it ends up on your face or clothes

  • Sarge

    #22 I don't even know why the fork is needed in the first place. This is Merica, use your hand.

    • Unfkngblvbl

      We have a place that sells HUGE slices. I sometimes use a fork to start it off.

    • http://twitter.com/NorCalChiver @NorCalChiver

      if you use a fork for pizza… you have no business eating pizza. only exception is deep dish, maybe.

  • reclaimer

    #30 or you can just use your hand? i dont really see the difference

    • drewplp

      It doesn't count unless your hands are beet red and close to bleeding.

    • Biggus Diccus

      I just wrap a few light bags around my wrist and carry the rest with hands. I can get about 10 bags that way.

      • Unfkngblvbl

        CARRY ALL THE BAGS!!

    • http://twitter.com/jeremy562 @jeremy562

      obviously most of you never carried these bags with gallons of milk , water and 2 liters, and seen your hands afterwords… those plastic bag handles stretch into barb wire with alot of weight…

    • Ziggy

      I had one of these. In the time it took to hook all the bags into this thing and unhook them, I could have carried two loads.

  • Loops

    where can i buy #19 – Genius!

    • Livin' Legend

      There's no way this isn't available at IKEA.

    • Reguillet

      What is this called so I can search for it?

      • manilovefilmsdylan

        It's the Krundnek shelving unit.

    • Looks good to me

      For schoolrooms this is genius

    • nate
  • reclaimer

    #18 is genius

    • Ned Flanders

      And been done several years ago by several bands in several cities. Take 1 part young people and 1 part social networking and you get "originality."

      • Scruffy

        Already done here in Ireland with years also.They got me the first time,fool me once…..

        • Trav

          Yea and there is a radio show in the U.S. called "Free Beer and Hot Wings"

    • Nice

      30 year old joke at least…..therefore it has ceased to be a joke. Reclaimer you should win a chive shirt for your "genius" post.

    • SirTomster

      There is a band they many of you know of today that started out as Free Beer. They were forced to change it due to the complaints. So they changed it to something else to get people in the door. So instead of Beer they decided to get guys in the doors with a new name.

      Bare Naked Ladies

    • Kurt

      A comedy troop about 20 years ago went by the name "Free Food and Beer". This is nothing new.

  • Huh

    #1

    Explain?

    • jim thorton

      air conditioning

    • Bobdog

      DIY Swamp cooler

      • Polygon Poop

        Exactly my thoughts. Often seen on Vee-dubs (or early Volkswagens as some call them). And why you got several thumbs down for that, is a mystery to me… so here's one up.

    • 5280Blazin

      Ok, so his looks homemade, but before airconditioning in cars was around they used to have things just like that. Basically what you do is put ice or even dry ice in a chamber and the air flows through the ice before coming in the truck. Voila homemade air conditioning.

      • 5280Blazin

        When my AC last broke I looked all over for one of these things.

    • YoYo Ma

      Is it an air vent? I can't figure out what it's supposed to be.

      Maybe a spotlight?

      • Jen

        exhaust for when he farts.

    • common sense

      Good idea but you see before air conditioning in a cars you did this amazing way to keep cool, its called rolling down a window

      • King Shit

        When it's 105 degrees, humid as fuck, and you're at a stop light you'll reconsider that statement.

      • Digital_Utopia

        Or when it's raining

  • lovethechunk

    #24 Looks cool until someone hits you with the lawnmower!

    • Ned Flanders

      I think it would look pretty cool post lawnmower too.

    • Imzkid

      Necessary blackout gear.

    • Johnny Snow

      If it was blue or orange instead of green I would totally want one for camping and hunting.

  • Goldenboy

    #7 #9 #12 Those r the best.
