Dumbest Inventions of the 20th Century: Part II

Epic Fails: 10 of the Dumbest Inventions of the 20th Century
from gajitz.com

This is the second half of few of the worst inventions of the  20th Century  (in no particular order) described as really dumb, silly or useless  by gajitz.com. I believe though that these is so ONLY because the idea and the product itself never took off for one reason or another other than being silly at the onset. Compared to Part I, NONE of the items in Part II looked cool to me at any century. You be the judge....

6. Shower hood

This shower hood from 1970 has us baffled. Is it meant to keep your head dry while you shower? Or does it let you just wash your hair while your face stays dry? Either way, we commend this model for being able to smile while standing naked in front of a photography crew while wearing a beekeeper’s hood.

7. Honegar- Honey + Vinegar

Honey is a well-loved folk remedy and has been for centuries. Vinegar is also used often to treat various conditions. But mixing the two together resulted in Honegar, which we can’t imagine even trying to stomach.

8. Sea Shoes 
Seriously, what was up with guys playing in the water while wearing suits? At least M. W. Hulton’s invention included poles to help the rider with balance. The duckfoot propellers on the back of these Sea Shoes helped the well-dressed man traverse all of the pesky ponds between home and work.

9. Cigarette pack holder

In the 50s, everyone smoked. In fact, they couldn’t smoke fast enough if this cigarette pack holder is any indication. Did the inventor of this fine contraption not know that excess nicotine causes violent vomiting, dizziness and severe headache? No doubt a dumb invention and a health hazard at that...

10. Cigarette holder for two
The cigarette holder for two: for when you really want to share your lung cancer with the one you love.
