Acme Klein Bottles
Have you ever wanted to own a bottle with a one sided surface and zero volume? Than a Klein Bottle is what you're looking for! Made by joining the two edges of a Mobius strip together, a Klein Bottle is a four dimensional, one sided, non-orientable, zero volume surface with no inside and no outside. Unfortunately, a true Klein bottle could only exist in four dimensional space. But the good folks over at Acme Klein Bottle have the next best thing; a three dimensional emulation of a real Klein bottle. And they're for sale! That's right, starting at $35 you can purchase your very own Klein Bottle, and even a Klein Bottle hat! If you're like me and don't have any money, you can at least ogle the wares. They've also got cartoons, haiku, and limericks related to their fine product. Check it out.
