2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth


If it weren't for the picture, English speakers would honestly have no idea what this was for.Contrary to the label, this is not made to make you bald.  It’s not a wax strip for your head, I promise.  If you look at the fancy-schmancy picture in the top right, you’ll see that it’s a cover to put over bath/shower drains to collect any excess hair.  That way your pipes don’t get (as) clogged and you don’t have to deal with gross mold and scary stuff when the water quits draining.

Not that that’s ever happened to me.

Glad that my hair can be firmly obtained.

(Note: These actually don’t work perfectly with my hair because, despite its length (excessive), the strands are a lot thinner than Japanese hair.  But it’s better than nothing.)

(Last note, promise: They also keep out mukade living in my drains.  Mukade are scary centipedes that are also poisonous.  Several of the words in the last sentence are clickable.  But not for the faint of heart.  These drain covers, however, do not keep out baby mukade.)

  1. Eew. I hate cleaning hair out of the drain.

    But the thought of a poisonous centipede coming up from the drain is something out of a nightmare.
