What's the Weirdest Thing You've Ordered Online? 

By Kate Knibbs on at

You can buy almost anything online. There are lots of normal options, like shoes or groceries. But you can also order a ton of whacky shit, like a life-size statue of obese Arnold Schwarzenegger or a TaskRabbit to come stand motionless and unblinking in your kitchen while you dance around them to the music of Fleetwood Mac. Amazon will sell you a 55-gallon tub of lube!

I work from home, and it's lonely when I'm by myself all day. I've developed a borderline irresponsible online shopping habit. The more I buy, the more the doorbell rings. Sweet solace from solitude.

Weird solace from solitude. This is why I own a pair of leggings covered in the faces of Tilda Swinton and David Bowie (still available for purchase if anyone wants to be legging twins). My mum has reviewed them as "upsetting."
