Don`t you guys realize these guys are freelance writers and write for both cracked and atom and probably other sites?(cracked doesn`t keep their list writers locked up in a jail)

even if the iposture was changed from electric shock to vibration, imagine ur reaction when u suddenly feel something vibrating inside ur shirt... i would freak out at first then realized that i made a fool out of myself for putting it on the first place and being embarrassed around alot of people coz im inside the train right now and i twitched, which made the people around me "apparently sleeping" freak out too.

jeez wierd inventions... the fundies turned me on tho.. lol

My friend and I were watching lightning one night and were talking about how difficult it was to capture it with his 35mm camera. After some thought, we came up with the idea of a fully automatic camera. We were so excited we started to go off on how cool it would be, then the sad realization hit us like a ton of bricks. We just decribed a movie camera.

One of the other supposed benefits of the RLM is to "sync your creative behavior" with your “creative leg shake beat.” And if reading that baffling sentence made you realize that something this pointlessly insane just has to come from Japan, then congratulations, you win a trophy! Unfortunately, that trophy is a crying schoolgirl doll being raped my a wind-up octopus. It, uh...it loses a little something in translation.

lmao

Joolin, this is the guy who wrote the most disturbing creatures on Earth articles, and those were funny as watching somebody get shocked with the iPosture.

Wow, Atom, I`m impressed. I actually laughed. It would`ve been nice to see the unquestioned master of disappointing ideas - the Segway - on there, but it was a good list nonetheless.

@ Perfection and freddyferret: Robert Brockway is a Cracked blogger. The "Word Puncher." Anyway...this list could have easily been a Cracked article.

Dumb, just a waste. I thought it would be from Cracked and be funny. I should have known it was crap when I saw it was from Atom.

Belt Buckle iPod/MP3 would actually be pretty damn awesome without the whole pelvis thrusting.. If they just stuck on a button or two, I`d buy it :P

I don`t know how good of an idea it would be to fill a nunchuck with flammable/combustable material when it`s made to be slammed into things. Oh ya where`s the segway?

oh noes, its frum atom and not cracked wich iz teh best0re5t webzit evah no mater how crap ther blogs r! letz al rater thiz bad cus itz not frum craked!!!1!11!1!!!11!

Seriously people, grow up. I find it extremely sad that you can have a dislike for everything on a certain website without even looking first. I personally though this was pretty good. It was no worse than any of cracked endless top ten lists (most of which are actually boring and drag on).

Just give things a chance, jeez. oh noes sumnbody els made a list!1!!!1!1!1! flaym waaar!!

Ok the guy says the nunchuck lighter isn`t awesome be cause
"Most people just end up alternately smacking themselves in the head or crotch with them."

Dude, that right there puts them in the highest order of awesome. You fail, turn in your testicles.

I the High Lord God King Emperor of the Internet have spoken.
All hail me.

The list style is overdone as it is. But a poorly written and not really funny one at that? No excuses.

Stop posting Atom`s crap.
