A toaster with crumbs. Used underwear. A toilet paper roll with Donald Trump's face. A car with no engine...

"The Internet is like a rabbit hole." The expression became so common that no one stops to really think about what that means. In terms of nonsense, it means everything is possible.

Super strange flip flops, the sort that you would never, not even in your wildest dreams, could imagine? Check. Products that promise to keep your nose (and your face) without lines? Check. In some websites, like Aliexpress.com, there are gadzillions of things that keep us awake at night, such is the weirdness of their collection - yes, let's leave it like this. Are you ready to add stuff to cart?
