Patents nowadays are getting completely absurd. Apple claims to have invented/patented multitouch, but in fact it has been actively researched since the 1980s.
Of course, after searching for “frivolous patents” on Google, I found patent #6,049,811, which is perhaps the best one of all. It patents getting a patent!
