Okay, the fact that he made those by hand in his kitchen is extremely impressive. I can barely make scrambled eggs in there.

Great invention! Now if the idiots that shop at Wal-mart would buy a pair, while they are walking around playing music on their phones, tormenting us with their stupid tunes, that would be great.
