A car powered by ghosts so that to refill the tank you just have to drive through a graveyard.


a pair of jeans but the side seam has an ethernet cable in it for quick data transfer


a steam plugin that automatically installs all the nude anime mods for every game that has them (which is literally every game on pc) and then calls the police on you
