    Hey all. I noticed that on several of my favorite aggregator sites they had posted their own 'Worst Kickstarter Projects of 2014' last year around this time, so I figured I might as well kick off a thread to that effect here for 2015.

    Feel free to post (what you think is) the WORST project (or projects) that you think somebody had to be absolutely NUTS to submit for crowdsourced funding approval on kickstarter here below.

    I guess I'll kick it off (no pun intended) with this one:

    Hide A Spider

    Sweet monkey Jebsus. If that becomes a reality, heaven help us all (I should make one about painting with bird poop or something, LOL)

    Open season... enjoy. ;)

    I was actually browsing through kickstarter a couple days ago when I came across this thing called Appbook. It prints "the best" conversations you have had on Whatsapp. I cant tell if this is a joke or serious. Leaning more towards serious, but I think it's a hilarious fail either way. Especially considering some conversations to be had on Whatsapp ;).

    5$ goal. Well at least they are aiming at a "reasonable" level considering their product.

    But it's too early to say if that is the owrst for the year, we still have 10 full months to go and the rest of February.
