If your child shoots himself in the head with a bb gun trying to dig out the bb with a knife is probably a bad idea. But, if you do and you are unsuccessful, waiting for 24 hours to take him to the ER just might get him pulled from the home.
An oxygen-tank bubble dress designed by Hana Marie Newman. It supplies the wearer with a constant supply of purified air, so they don't have to breathe in the polluted air that everyone else is choking on. Reminds me of Emilio Pucci's bubble bonnet that I posted about several weeks ago. [via treehugger]

I can imagine a man being follicle-challenged and able only to grow a patchy beard or mustache. But most of us can grow a perfectly fine crop of facial hair for free. Why would anyone spend money for a fake? And the price! The Inflation Calculator I always use says: "What cost $30 in 1968 would cost $185.89 in 2010."
But the weirdest thing is the appeal to scam your girlfriend or one-night-stand with fake hair. Huh?
