Ew, Ew, Ewww! I've never been more grossed out or intrigued by a gadget that I've posted (oh wait), but this Electromagnetic Cockroach Expeller is giving me the severe heebie jeebies. Goosebumps are forming, and it is unclear when they will subside. Even the plastic cockroaches are freaking me out.

For just $25, the Expeller uses flashing lights to "drive" the bugs away (like saying "I love you" too soon?), rather than just killing them dead, like some other cruel-to-bugs gadgets I know.

I'm curious to see how annoying the lights would be, and if it actually works. I have great sympathy for anyone who has this problem — even though I've seen maybe one live one in my entire life, it will last me my whole life.
