    I came across this question and decided to make it a thread here. (maybe I shall make other threads with other questions too)

    • What is the worst design ever?

    I haven't completely thought about this to give an absolute answer for myself, but to start I will say Plastic Clamshell Packaging. Whoever designed it should be scheduled for a public hanging.

    If you've ever opened up a CFL light bulb, you know what this is.

    Speed bumps. If I ever meet the jerk who approves them for any street I'm going to go to jail. This city has potholes that can swallow cars and we're putting perfectly good asphalt on top of the streets to makes more bumps.

    That's right up there with the old cassette packaging that was a shoplifting deterrent. It was as long as your forearm with all this hard plastic and a handle on the end.

    I can't find a picture, but some of you that are my age may remember it.

    His name is William L Morris. :laugh2:

    Theft resistant cassette holder: United States Patent: 4,567,983 - February 4, 1986 by William L Morris of Troy MI.

    The clamshell packaging actually has several inventors based on shape and stuff. Hang them all.

    As product designs go, some multi-tasking convenience options shouldn't be offered ... ever.

    Umbrellas, I hate them and for the most part refuse to use them.

    Pretty much.

    On a side note, did you notice those 'green technology' lights come in plastic/petroleum packaging, while the old fashioned lights come in recycled paper?

    Batteries...

    If I need two, I have to buy three. If I need three I have to buy four.

    You cannot mix one brand with another. So, I'm left with random batteries...I buy one brand for a flashlight and have one left over. The wife buys another brand for something else, and one left over!
