Father and Son Build Hilariously Annoying Trombone Rifle
What is the most ridiculous gun in the world? That would be this trombone gun. YouTuber CaptainQuinn and his son built this hilarious and obnoxiously loud trombone rifle about a year back. Sure, it isn’t new, but we thought we’d share because it is so fun and bizarre.

Cheap Foldable Noise Canceling Headphones [Such a Deal]
A few months ago my friend’s globetrotting father bought a pair Bose noise canceling headphones.

Too bad he didn’t wait for these headphones from Ableplanet, because right now they are dirt-cheap.

This sound module out of Germany produces an array of interesting eighties-esque bleeps, blips and fuzz that can incorporate little bits of speech and other sound effects.
