To ensure the foam fire suppression system actually worked before bringing aircraft into its new helicopter maintenance training facility, safety personnel at the Fort Indiantown Gap Army Reserve base in Pennsylvania performed a full scale test of the emergency equipment. But I can’t understand why no one is running…
Amid a closetful of nominations, three clothes hangers stood out from the pack. So check out the finalists below, and don’t leave us hanging by forgetting to vote at the bottom of the post.
You can quickly wash a soiled shirt in your bathroom sink, but if you don’t have a clothes dryer in your apartment you can forget about wearing it right away. Hanging it to dry takes hours, unless the hanger you’re using is actually this compact clothes dryer from Thanko.
These sleek hangers, designed by German-Latvian agency Flow Design, look like something's missing. Don't worry, though: they've simply swapped the hooks for magnets.
Hungry? Sorry, you're outta look. While this box might look like it's stuffed full of cookies, you're actually looking at a cool new set of wall hangers.
Is all your bad-ass clothing just too much for those flimsy, plastic, run-of-the-mill hangers. Do your pants or shirts, weighted as they are with pounds of pure awesomeness, need something more structurally sound to keep them in order? The "Man Hanger" suits your very strange needs.
When most people look at hangers, all they see is a way to hang clothing, or a means to open a locked vehicle. Not designer Tim Parsons. He looked past their use as a tool for grand theft auto and saw a better way to both hand and maintain your stylish blazer.
Don't even try to wrap your head around this twisted plywood hanger. It's clearly only designed to support the shirts, belts, scarves, and other accessories of the world's greatest mathematicians and physicists.

If you live in a small apartment, you probably don't have enough floor space to donate to a coat rack. But if you still need a place to drop your coat, you'll be gobsmacked by this brilliantly simple hanging roberope with five molded hooks along its length.
I'm going to risk it all and guess that a lot of you reading this today probably have about a hundred of these "custom" iPad stands in your closet right now. Pretty ingenious. More importantly, cheap. [YouTube - Thanks, Phil]
David Mach is a London-based sculptor who owns lots of coat hangers, so he made a spaceman sculpture out of them. He also made a giant gorilla and a hooker out of hangers. We have more images and a quick recap of his sculptural method.
Fastidious types are frequently wearing suits or otherwise fussy, wrinkle-prone clothes, so they'll probably like this Aluminum Folding Travel Hanger from Kikkerland Design, letting them hang up stuff wherever they go, just like their mommies told them to. This lightweight hanger collapses into an improbably small…
