What is the worst design ever?

Reason I ask is for a project in my course (engineering) though the particular design doesn't have to be engineered. It could be biological, however most things in our body are pretty well "designed."
Another thing we thought of was CFCs, ie aerosol cans and refridgerators.

But the worst design has to have as many cons as possible and few pros, so don't say something like "iPods" just because they break a lot.

PS For "Best design" part of the project we're going with time-keeping/watches. Nothing bad about a watch.

This guy has absolutely no life (whingey website guy, not poster)


He says things are bad designs because he lacks common sense, he lifts things by the lid (because they 'look like a handle' despite the fact that it is not) and then complains when the lid falls off

Exactly.

What about the keyboards where the "Insert," "Home," "Page Up," etc. keys are placed vertically on the keyboard instead of the classical horizontal?

Somewhat similar to this:

Ahh, Bill Bailey... He actually looks quite a bit more feminine than most feminists.

I have an annoying one...

My house is designed so that you can only open the front door from the INSIDE. There are no keyholes on the outside... So we've spent the last year coming into the house through the garage.

Dear diary.

Today I stuffed some dolls full of dead rats I put in the blender.

I'm wondering if, maybe, there really is something wrong with me.
