Crazy Stuff : Our lives are just a bit too crazy these days. It's multitasking all around. We try to find ways to escape and ease the stress -- if only for a little while. Enter Crazy Stuff -- 400-plus pages of wonderfully offbeat things perfectly suited to hectic schedules and wandering minds. Some of the stuff is plainly practical and bargain-priced, while some is outrageous and extravagant. The items range from low-tech goofiness (the "that's ridiculous" and "that's hilarious" thingamajigs) to high-tech contraptions that make life easier (the "why didn't I think of that?" and "I want one of those" treasures). All of them leave us admiring the quirky and sometimes questionable minds that dreamed them up in the first place.
