If you need any more proof that we're giving Nobel Prizes to the wrong people, behold the brilliant creation that is Putter Pool. It takes billiards and golf—arguably two of the laziest 'sports' known to man—and merges them into an indoor game that barely requires you to get up off the couch. Genius!
Unless you're being cremated, blasted into space, or turned into a cyborg, everyone will need a coffin at some point in their life. (Usually near the end.)

There are few things that scream bachelor pad more than a pool table. And even the skeeviest single guy knows you gotta eventually class it up.
