History's worst inventions listed

Roundup: Pop Culture & the Arts ... Movies, Documentaries and Museum Exhibits

A series of idiotic ideas have been detailed in a book, History's Worst Inventions.

They include a wicker chair spaceship and an asbestos tablecloth. Other useless inventions included anti-tank dogs during the Second World War when the Russians attempted to counter the might of the German Army's tanks.

The dogs, fitted with explosives, would be starved before battles and trained to search for food under vehicles, where they would then explode.

However, dogs often ran towards their own lines, blowing up tanks on their own side, according to the Sun.
