I love ‘this piece of shit!’ Sony should make more so we can have more videos like this.

The real place for stupid, fucking worthless gadgets, however, is Bed Bath & Beyond. Most of their stuff is beyond worthless!

What really hurts, however, is that you feel like a worthless piece of shit everytime you get suckered into buying a real worthless piece of shit while you’re standing in line to pay for whatever worthless gadget you shouldn’t have bought in the first place.

-glue that sticks to the top of the glue stick and nothing else
-furniture scratch ‘patch up’ pens that never match any color of wood you own or have ever seen in your whole life
-‘simply human’ trash containers whole handle blocks you from throwing trash in
-humidifiers that flash flood your living room
