    Velcro fly closures on trousers.

    No doubt invented by a woman.

    Well a zip fly can cause a problem, especially if her husband comes home unexpectedly.

    At least with those, one is meant to wear underwear. Try Velcro on your swimsuit (common with board shorts - no lining either). Won't make that mistake again.

    That's what I'm talking about. And not about wearing them, but taking a leak, old guy style. (That is, NOT undoing your belt and dropping your pants down to your knees in front of the urinal.)

    Tried and rejected in the 1950's. Makes too much noise in movies/cinemas.

    What is being attempted here, Dura? A new type of enema?

    I dunno, but whatever it is, it looks to me like a really bad idea.

    Button closures on trousers. Takes wayyyy too long to do up.

    How about incredibly difficult to open packaging.

    Maybe Steorn can find a use for its old magnets.

    Were these really that bad?

    No worries. A preflight check would reject the aircraft for excessive dirt in the engines (no reflection on the hygiene of the individual soldier and no slur on soldiers intended).

    Holy smoke! The 1950s!!! If only we'd known think of all the money we could have saved. We wouldn't have had to start the manned space programme to provide the initial need for velcro.

    That's really funny.. lawn Jarts came immediately to my mind as well.

    I knew a kid in high school who'd lost an eye to one of those when he was like 9-10 years old. His loss of sight (and the lawsuit) may have been one of the driving forces behind getting them banned.

    I once came across a photo (internet) of an aircraft jet engine, whose turbine blades were coated with what looked like some kind of bright pinkish paste. A moment later, I recoiled in horror when I realized what that paste had once been. The appearance was nearly identical to mechanically separated chicken, which I had seen before.
