The universe is full of stuff. And some stuff is certainly more useful and more necessary than others. There are things that we need and have, then there’s stuff that we know we need, but don’t have, and then there’s stuff we know we don’t need.

But wait, there’s more. There’s also a fourth category—the stuff we are certain nobody on this planet really needs but for some reason exists. This is what Twitter has been discussing in a recent viral trend under the hashtag #StuffThatShouldNotExist.

Recently people started naming things that should not exist, but for some unknown reason are a thing. Besides all those taking a jab at Twitter’s image centering AI and everything that is wrong with the world, they have also shared pictures of things like carpets in bathrooms, Nicholas cage sequin pillows, and everything else that is either creepy, ugly or just plain useless.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of some of the best entries in this new challenge, which you can peruse below. And while you’re doing that, why not also leave an upvote and comment under the ones you enjoyed the most!

If you want a really fun read, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chind%C5%8Dgu. Especially the The Ten Tenets of Chindōgu. Once you understand the tenants, one typically starts viewing these silly things with a lighter mind. They are essentially items that would be perfect in a town with a Ministry of Silly Walks. It's an exercise in creativity that is MEANT to not go anywhere. I used to see things like the above and think 'WTF, Japan?' Now, I find it quite silly and charming.

If it is indeed real, it's not that functional (I think) - the umbrellas should somehow go around the foot. The way it is show, part of the water would drip on top of the person's feet and wetting just the same. I have to admit it looks great, though
