Donald Scruggs is a mad scientist. Well, technically, he's a "chemical engineer," and has already designed something called a "dual-flush toilet kit," to which we say: ... okay! Just on the tail end of Halloween, Scruggs has come up with something called a "screw-in coffin," which is basically a quirky, Sharper Image–type coffin that screws into the ground.
