There was a story in the news last week about underwear for women that would give attackers an ELECTRIC SHOCK. But it's definitely not the first time someone's used fear to market a stupid product. Here are three more, if you're the paranoid type.
1. The Pet Emergency Evacuation Jacket. It's a ridiculous-looking, flame-retardant, reflective silver coat that you put on your dog or cat during a fire or natural disaster.It also has a bunch of pockets that come filled with emergency supplies, like a mini-radio and first-aid supplies. It's made by a company in Japan, of course, and with shipping, it's about $500. (Check it out here.)
2. The Pepper Spray iPhone Case. They don't have them for the iPhone 5 . . . probably because no one's buying the current version, which has a big bump on the back of it, so it's hard to fit in your pocket. But it comes in four different colors, and costs 40 bucks. (Check it out here.)
3. A Clean Air Filter for Planes. This one actually sounds okay, but you're definitely a little paranoid if you buy it. It's a plastic filter that fits over the air vents above your seat on a plane. And they supposedly filter out 99.5% of bacteria and virusesThat SOUNDS good . . . until you realize you're still sitting in a plane full of NON-filtered air. You can get one at FiltersFast.com for $20. (Check it out here.) (Cracked.com)
