Totally Random And Useless Inventions

Thursday is random day. At least it is today, on this blog. So here are some random and useless — and in some cases downright preposterous — inventions that LIFE has curated from its archives. There are plenty more where these came from, including but certainly not limited to a curved gun barrel and a cigarette umbrella. Happy almost-Friday!
