The most depressing product of the day

1_138

No contest: it's the World Phone Adaptor Kit, a portion of which is shown in the photo above.

Why is it the most disheartening and depressing?

    Here's the website's description:

    Be prepared for virtually every modular phone connection in the world with a package of 34 telephone adaptor plugs that cover over 200 countries.

How did this nightmare occur?

You need to carry a 2.5–pound bag containing 34 different plugs, then sort through them each time you arrive in another country.

Insane.

$195 here.

But wait — there's more.

The same company's offering a set of 10 grounding adaptor plugs (below) that "fit appliances from virtually all countries in the world."
