    3. These horizontal reading glasses that will enable you to read without lifting your head from the pillow.


    Sure, you might look a little odd β€” maybe even a lot odd. But propping yourself up on your arms gets tiring, as does lifting a heavy book above your head. Never again do you have to stop before the climax of a book on account of a sore neck.

    6. This copper scraper that will get rid of that gunk sitting on top of your tongue.

    8. This toilet night light that is like a disco in your bowl.


    No longer do you have to stumble around in the dark when you go for a midnight leak.
