This book is short collection of wacky inventions that passed the through the patent office. All descriptions come with a minimum of an abstract and a diagram. Some come with more diagrams and descriptions.

I particularly like the "sock with a pocket". It looks like someone literally sewed a small pouch onto a sock. It would be great for running. . .

Another amazing invention is the condom shoved into a walnut after the nut meat has been drilled out.

There are plenty of crazy inventions in here, and well worth a browse if you find it at your library. Unless you are into inventions, it may not be worth buying.
