    The curved gun barrel was actually invented by the nazis near the end of WW2.It actually worked alright for close stuff because it would shatter the bullets making it like a shotgun they liked using them to clear tanks.

    Some of the these things are actually in use.
    - There is a curved barrel attachment with camera for the M16.

    Sinclair`s madness lead through the 70`s/80`s personal microcomputer progression then to the Atari Lynx and Jaguar (both 20 years too soon.)

    Okie, #1? Stupid choice! The curved barrel was used to great effect in WW2, idk why it`s a "dumb invention" when it`s still being worked on after (in that picture) nearly 10 years.
    I can`t be bothered with the rest when the #1 supposedly "dumb" thing is actually quite intelligent & useful (for wars and stuff, you know? shoot them without getting kilt yourself?)

    The Krummlauf, a curved-barrel attachment used with the German STG-44 assault rifle in WW2, was used by vehicle crews and in urban combat with reasonable success. The concept has persisted to this day and is still used. Look harder for examples of dumb inventions.

    Curved Barrel Gun: Does anybody watch FutureWeapons? Guns that can shoot around corners are common in some militaries now.
    Cup Bra: Aka, antique pasties.
    Honegar: That`s exactly what I do when I have a sore throat. Vinigar kills bacteria, honey makes the taste bareable.
    BEating Breasts: That sort of thing does work, I put a clock in my nephew`s crib when he was an infant.
    Many others we have now, they`re simply more advanced. You can`t call it stupid simply because technology wasn`t as good.

    yes shadow, but the gun that shoots around corners has a camera built into it so you can still see what you are shooting. You`re not blindly shooting around a corner like a maniac.

    A bent gun would be damn near impossible to aim.

    a bent gun would be damn near impossible to aim, not to mention to fire... pretty sure the bullets would just blow out the barrel or you would have one wicked missfire and die.

    "I think L. Ron H. invention is great, because his company make a very lot money with it ;)"

    Just because you find rich people who are stupid enough to invest in your invention doesn`t make the invention good. It just makes you a good salesman.

    Juice of a tomato is very acidic. When a metal object (such as a knife) is passed through it, the chemical reaction between the corrosive metal and the acid results in an electric charge. This is essentially how a battery works. What L. Rob. Hubbard is reading on his meter isn`t the tomato screaming, but the electrical current produced by the combination of the metal and the acid.

    This makes it a dumb invention. And everyone who buys into it is pretty damn stupid too. Rich, but stupid.

    @DarkFerret

    It was a special weapon used by the germans in WW2 pretty effectivly. They could change the barrel if the needed to and gave it to tank crews with MP-40s so they could open the hatch and spray people climbing onto the tank without exposing themselves.
