### February 22 _February 22 is a special day of the year when it seems like people really started reaching for the stars when it comes to crazy inventions. From the silly to the inexplicably useless let's take a look at some of the most ridiculous items that were invented on this day!_ * The **tangle-proof hairbrush**, made of flexible polymers that resist tangles and knots making brushing a much easier endeavor. _This is particularly useful if you have an unruly mane that has a mind of its own._ * **Chocolate-covered insects**, yes you read that right, an actual candy made of dried bugs covered in cocoa powder was created. _Whether it's a tasty treat or a gag gift, it's sure to get some attention!_ * **Glow-in-the-dark contact lenses**, because why not? _These sci-fi looking eyes will surely make you stand out from the crowd and create quite a stir wherever you go._ * **Vending machine shoes**, no need to worry about long lines at the store anymore, just grab a pair of shoes from a vending machine and be on your way! _While they may not be the best fit, they can certainly come in handy in a pinch._ With all these odd inventions, one can't help but wonder why someone would think to create them... If there's one thing history has taught us, it's that February 22 brings some truly crazy ideas to life!
