What Were They Thinking?
    — Just how did that break?

“What Were They Thinking?” highlights products and presentations which just don’t make sense.

I encountered FiberFix, a water-activated bonding repair tape, at the local Lowe’s over the weekend.  Looks like fantastic stuff, but I marveled at the pic:

Explain to me just how the nut-racker bar on a bicycle gets broken (without the rest of it being horribly damaged, anyway).  A co-worker suggested that maybe someone took a hacksaw to the bar, to steal… and then he stopped that line of thought.

This picture from the product’s website doesn't improve matters.  A close look at the chair shows that the tape wrap is Photoshopped (poorly) onto the stock photo.  Onto all the items, apparently, based on the angle of the tape roll.
