I am constantly inventing unique and entertaining new ways to annoy and embarrass my older children. They are at the age where they think they know everything and I know nothing about life :rolleyes: anyway, so I have fun with them whenever possible!

(By the way they know when I am fooling around. Just like I am now) :D

once upon a time it was said that 'necessity was the mother of invention' - but I don't think this is the case any more. Except, that we may have to invent things to counteract the environmental problems we have created! How did we get to a state where pollution, global warming, waste etc has become such an environmental hazard? Need or greed?

Mine is still in the concept stage. I call it the Whale Zeppelin. It's a means of whale watching from a silent, airborne, dirigible craft, instead of by boat.

I prefer to pull weeds out by hand, but at the new house, we have a ton of them that spread by root runner, and all that does is make more little rootlets and even more weeds. For those, I usually use Roundup, but the other problem is that it's very, very windy here.

I took a 20-ounce soda bottle and cut off the bottom, and the top opening fit right onto the sprayer on the spray bottle with a snap. I was able to put the soda bottle over the weed and spray it without getting Roundup on any other plants!

I want to make a trash compactor for my car.
The best invention I've ever had though is the game PICTIM.

My area of invention is in ways of occupying my mind while doing other things. I've made a lot of various duct-tape cases for PDAs and sound machines so that I can do things like listen to music while cleaning or read an ebook from my PDA while doing the dishes. We have a machine in our new (to us) house, but I have a custom case for my PDA so I can hang it on the wall in place of a decoration and read while I do the dishes.

Similarily, I read from a PDA while I cook, clean (well, I stop cleaning and read), go to the bathroom, wash my hands, etc. I used to read as I walked between classes. But I never, ever just sit down and *read* a novel. It's always while I am or should be doing something else. And I make up all sorts of contraptions to enable this behavior. :D

What do you think that an ideal ADD home should have in it? Besides a computer and the internet and the basics.

I took a Deodrent bottle, and fixed it up, and turned it into a carrying case for my cheep digital camra :)

Its padded on the inside and everything too :p

I'm also in the middle of brainstorming ideas for my own motto is "symetry is boreing" so I'll have no problem going to the dump, finding what I need and slapping it togeather with a welder :)

I'm also comtimplateing createing my own language...just because I don't like the idea of buming off japaneese characters, and somehoe english doesn't have the same effect, so one day (proabley in the next week) I'll get started on that...hhehe, I can paint cool looking characters, and everyone (includeing the japaneese people) get to ask me "whatdoesthatsay?"

I was working at our hospital a number of years back and one of our confused patients got some, well, not so nice stuff on her hands and under her nails. We could not wash it off too easy because it had dried so hard we were afraid we would hurt her. I got the idea of putting lotion and a little mild soap in a disposable glove and put it on her hands. we waited five minutes and took the gloves off and the stuff came right off her hands and even from under her nails. I was wondering why there could not be disposable gloves for just this pourpose, or just to have lotion in them to keep hands soft or if someone had skim problems of the hand.
