Remember back in the early days of the World Wide Web, when people weren't sure about buying things like books over the Internet? Those days are long behind us.

According to a recent story in The Wall Street Journal, last year e-commerce grew by about 15%, to $186 billion. That's seven times the growth rate of total U.S. retail spending, according to the study. Other sources say online retail is expected to reach $370 billion by 2017.

So it would seem most of us have gotten comfortable with the idea of buying stuff online. But it's still a bit of a stunner to realize the range of, uh, products out there.  Watch this video to see just what kinds of bizarre stuff you can buy online and have shipped to your home.

And we're not talking about the kitchen sink, either. Although you can buy one of those, too, of course.
