I wasn't around when the Wright brothers flew the first airplane (it was in 1903, after all) — but I'm willing to bet that a lot of people thought they were real oddballs.

75 oddball things on Amazon might not change the world the way airplanes have, but they're pretty genius, and I'm confident they just might change your world.

exfoliant is a best-seller in Japan; in fact, one bottle is sold every 12 seconds.
