4. RESERVE A SPOT IN HEAVEN
You can reserve a place in heaven for $13.79. And if you don’t make it there, there’s a money back guarantee. What’s more bizarre than the idea is that it has a reach of over thousand people a month. What use is money back guarantee when you’re DEAD?

The vacuum-cleaner-cum-trimmer is a hair cutting machine minus all the mess. The hair won’t fall to the ground but instead would be sucked into the vacuum pump. It can be used to groom dogs as well.
11. CANNED AIR
A man came up with the idea to store clean air in cans which can be used in areas with high levels of air pollution(such as Japan). People actually seem to buy the cans and they have since been altered. People even use gas dusters to get high while the usual air duster is comparatively safe for use. Talk about being creative and basic at the same time.
