    "That’s right ladies, just remember that the secret to looking good (or at least thinking you look good) is hypoxia."

    I laughed so loud, I scared the cat! LOL

    lol I love the polka-dotted haz-mat suit look!

    Hmm, I actually think that lipstick stencil could be a good idea...

    I was a particular fan of the radiation beard removal, like cutting off a leg to loose weight. lol

    Although the psycho expander comes in a close second just for the name.

    I am sure there will be people sitting around discussing how people of our time got sprayed on tan, silicone injections, botox etc... in 50 years and saying similar things.

    I can't believe they didn't include the giant perm machine, at least for looks.

    I always wonder the same thing -- what stuff from today will be laughed at in 50 years for being ridiculous or dangerous!

    What I love more than the nose shield, is the comment someone made about the Groucho Marx mustache being added to it later. Haha

    That hair-growing vacuum hat dingus was an idea that just kept coming back over and over again. it was revived in the late thirties by the Crosley company -- a reputable outfit known for radios and refrigerators, but rather than selling it to individuals it was sold to beauty parlors and barber shops as a "scientific treatment device."

    Barnum was right. And he was also bald.
