The Inbox [Part 8/9] – The Museum of Non-Working Inventions

So I’ve been in the email game for a long time, but it seems that I’ve been in the email hoarding game for an even longer time. Therefore, I’ve decided to share some of the more funny and interesting emails that I’ve received over the years guaranteed to either (1) make you laugh or (2) say “Wow!”. HAPPY SUMMER EVERYBODY!

This isn’t an email, but a link to a website. Here’s the back story behind it.

I was researching steam engines after watching the recently cancelled NBC sci-fi show “Revolution” (the most enjoyable show on NBC since “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”). Then that got me to researching perpetual motion machines and THEN that led me to a hyperlink that simply said “The Museum of Non-Working Inventions”. With curiosity piqued, I clicked on it and found man’s failed attempts to improve the human race through technology. While scientifically sound, not practical or (in some cases) functional in real life.

Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself and be surprised.
