Amazon is the destination of choice for electronics, snacks, clothing and more. But there is a dark side of Amazon: an often unvisited area, where uranium, fire ants, wooden huts and UFO detectors are all delivered with free shipping .
We will take you to this area and you could even do some shopping. Here are 14 things you did not know you could buy on Amazon.
Unrefined uranium oxide
If you have not added unrefined uranium oxide in your wish list or your Amazon wedding list, then clearly, you have no idea what you are doing! It emits ionizing radiation and causes the cry of pain of the Geiger counters. And despite what someone else could tell you, this guy on Yahoo Answers says that you can own uranium without a license.
Unfortunately, Amazon does not sell enriched uranium or plutonium. But hey … maybe someday!
Lou-Wheeze, the flexible latex lung model
Believe it or not, Amazon can scare you. They sell a named cardboard cutout named, Lou Wheeze– a woman with a perfect lung and a miserable lung.
Why does Lou-Wheeze expose her lungs? In fact, it is an inanimate educational resource that you can use to teach your children (or yourself or your parents) what happens when you inhale smoke through a single nostril (you end up with a really rotten lung).
A wonderful educational tool
Two tubes of live red ants
Nature Gift Store
If you want, you can buy two tubes of live red ants from Amazon right now. Supposedly, you can use them to create a colony. We did not have the chance to check this information because the ants we ordered managed to escape from their tubes. We had to kill our ants before they could kill us.
Note: According to Amazon, you should order these ants only if the temperature in your area varies between 40 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
An urn with a guitar on it
You have probably never bought an Amazon's urn. Well guess what! Amazon sells ballot boxes and coffins, and some of them are pretty cool.
Our favorite Amazon urn is made by NWA (possibly affiliated with Ice Cube). It's our favorite because it has a Gretsch guitar with hollow body above. We think this should also be your favorite, because who does not like guitars?

Unassembled parts of an unpainted wooden house
Do not buy a big expensive house, build it yourself with a Allwood Cab Kit! These kits are very fun for you and the family. They are big, unpainted and not eligible for a two-day expedition. Of course, they are not as cheap as trailers, but they require a lot more effort!

A giant inflatable gorilla of 96 inches
Are you thinking of starting a car dealership? Well, luckily for you, Amazon sells giant inflatable gorillas! This hairy (but not really hairy) 96-inch beast will attract dozens of customers! His beautiful smile will inspire your employees to make record sales, while his frozen look will intimidate your rivals.
Yes, it's a giant gorilla
Fundies: Underwear for two (one size)
Did you know that Amazon sells double undergarment? This incredible underwear comes with four built-in leg holes, so you and a friend can cut down on laundry! And guess what else! It is available for free delivery.

A UFO detector that actually works

Have you ever wondered what is happening beyond the night sky? Well, there are almost certainly one or two extraterrestrials waiting for you to drop your guard. But if you catch that totally real UFO detector, you can protect yourself!
According to Images SI, Inc., this UFO detector warns you when "simultaneous magnetic and electromagnetic disturbances" occur. Of course, it is possible that this product is simply a ploy of the government to instill false hopes in your human brain, but it seems pretty scientific.

A Windows phone
Curiously, Amazon sells something called a Nokia Lumia 735 "Windows phone". It seems to be an old cell phone or something of the sort. Our research shows that this "phone" was created at some point in 2014.
A 2017 Amazon review states that this device is "better than iPhones".

The tacos train
Hard-shell tacos are stupid. They do not know how to stand up straight and it's really frustrating. Fortunately, Amazon sells the tacos train. It's the only device that can keep your hard-shell tacos upright and keep your French fries and salsa in the caboose.
Although we would like someone to invent a taco rack that does not look like a messy cart coming from an abandoned mall, this will have to be done for the time being.
Roll the tacos train around your counter and impress all your friends!

A 3D cockroach body pillow
We live in a world where Amazon sells cockroach body pillows, and you should appreciate this fact. These super-cute 3D cockroach cushions are available in three sizes (13.8 inches, 21.6 inches or 29.5 inches) and are a perfect gift!
It's better than uranium.
