Heck why not have some fun for a change. The doom and gloom gets overwhelming here on ATS.

I think I would actually try a few of these things.

I posted only a few, but the link has the rest if you care to look.

Hey if you got em, smoke em! The pack smoker. If one is good then, maybe?

A family that plays together, stays together.

And we thought they didn't have mini-cams back in the day. lol

I'm all for male bonding, but this creeps me out a bit. Two person pipe.

Wow I wonder why this one didn't take off? Precision make-up tool

Recycling is not a new idea. Old inner-tube for flotation

now this look kinda cool. Motor power roller stakes.

Heck why not! They actually guarantee results of you pay nothing.

Hang over mask. I think humans have tried everything for this condition, so why not.

Wow I wonder what happened to these?

What happened to Reddibacon?
It probably burned up in the house fires that resulted from cooking bacon in a toaster..... or the lawsuits afterwards!

I found the real answer here: Foodigitty

Bacon. From a toaster. Hey, it was the ’60s, man. Reddi-Bacon was brought to us by the makers of Reddi-Whip — who promised bacon, while saving you from “soiling a frying pan or the oven.” Unfortunately, and somewhat unsurprisingly, Reddi-Bacon would leak fat from its foil cooking packet, and soil your toaster instead. Toaster bacon was practically dead on arrival, and pulled from test markets before being unleashed on the bell-bottom-wearing public. Dig it.
