4. This hoodie with a built in pillow

Wow, as a female, I’ve long struggled with finding practical clothes with ACTUAL POCKETS instead of fake ones or shallow ones that hold literally nothing. Somehow, I’ve managed to stumble upon this hoodie which is located on the far other end of this spectrum, with so many extra pockets you will literally get lost, plus a built-in pillow for those supremely lazy days.

5. The Flatulence Absorbing Cushion

No, I can’t believe this exists either. It’s an actual fart pillow. Guys! And apparently it works?! The reviews on Amazon are all really positive. Could be ideal for those long road trips where one’s diet is purely canned beans. What do you think?
