Halloween Candy Alternatives
Everybody gives out candy on Halloween and for whatever reason you don't want to give out candy we have a few recommendations for you to give out instead. One idea is to give out personal finance guides, because goodness knows kids are very concerned about saving for college and retirement. Small tubes of toothpaste are an obvious choice if you're interested in combating all of the inevitable sugar bugs. Hand wipes if you're one who would like to keep hand clean from sugary messes. And finally my favorite, you can give out your old unmatched socks from back in the ...

Crazy Idea Factory Now Printing Money
What is the easiest way for governments to create more money? Why, to print more of it of course. We as citizens should also be able to print our own money on demand. Here is my contribution to the print your own money trend. If you print it on something valuable, it may actually have value. Or it might just eliminate the value of what it is printed on. Either way it is so much cooler than Monopoly money.
This Makes it OK to Wipe Your Nose on Your Sleeve
It has long been considered bad form to wipe your nose on your sleeve, but that conflicts with the natural instinct to use the forearm to wipe your nose. Why fight the urge?

Wipe away the snot, peel off the soiled tissue layer and you are ready for the next runny nose situation. Great if you have a cold, kids or just enjoy more stuff strapped to your arm.
Wi-Fi via Wi-Fly
Having a wireless Internet connection everywhere is an expensive idea, if you use lots of towers and big expensive equipment. That is why you should choose Wi-Fly as your ubiquitous wi-fi option. A small wi-fi signal transmitter mounted to the back of thousands ordinary house flies will quickly blanket the area in wireless Internet coverage. It will also make the garbage dump a lot more popular place for those wishing to get just a little better signal strength.

Use the Force To Get Your Remote Control
I admit I have done it many times, stare at the remote control with a hand outstretched trying to use the Force to magically move the remote through the air into my hand. I have not found my abilities to use the force at this time, but once I think I stared so hard I almost broke a blood vessel in my eye. So what are we supposed to do when we sit in a perfectly comfortable chair and realize the remote is twenty feet away. The answer unfortunately does not lie with Luke Skywalker and the Force, think more along ...
The Rocks are generally looked upon as useless and regular, but I am here to tell you rocks are the coolest thing ever. I drew up six fun things to do with rocks below.

Bike to Work Week or Make Your Bike Work Week!
Well this week is "Bike to Work Week" and actually May is "Bike Month". Biking is great, but unfortunately because of geographic and time issues many of us are unable to bike to work.

Learn a New Computer Language
Sometimes my computer devices get into arguments and can't seem to get along. I am thinking maybe I should learn to speak some computer languages in order to act as a mediator. Java sounds like a fun name for a computer language, maybe I will start there. Then, the next time I say "Cell phone you are going to sync with my Google Calendar whether you like it or not!" maybe it will listen (or maybe it will tell me where it would like me to sync).

Keep it Safe in Your Secret Trash Stash
Any good spy will tell you a safe is not a very safe place to store your valuables. You need to store your valuables in someplace nobody wants to look like the bottom of your trash can. Thieves and espionage agents will never think to look for a secret compartment in the bottom of your trash can. If you are still worried your trash isn't stinky enough to detour would be felons add a couple of poopy diapers, they are sure to keep all bad guys away (unless they lack a sense of smell).

Justices of the Supreme Court Toothbrushes
I read an article stating most Americans can't name even one Supreme Court Justice. I think it is because we don't do enough merchandising of the names and likenesses of the justices. Look in the toothbrush aisle next time you're out shopping. You will see a million character toothbrushes ranging from Dora to Spiderman, but not a single toothbrush representing the characters on the United States Supreme Court. Toothbrush companies need to step up and start manufacturing Supreme Court Justice toothbrushes. Just think of Clarence Thomas fighting tooth decay the way he fights injustice. Anthony Kennedy getting ...

My pillow should know based upon my mood and level of tension what form it ...
Follow Me Night Light
I am sure there is a medical study somewhere keeping track of the amount of injuries incurred by people waking up in the middle of the night and stumbling or walking into something on their way to the bathroom. Imagine if you could wake up in the middle of night, mumble the word "bathroom" or "kitchen" and that word would activate a robot. The robot would light up and guide you to your destination and guide you safely back to bed. Better yet the robot could also have a "go get me" mode. You could mumble "go get me a glass ...

Base-bowl is a game that is played in a special bowling ally where the batter/bowler stands at the plate, a ball pops up and the batter/bowler tries to hit the ball into the pins and knock as many down as possible. Scoring is the same as in standard bowling the only big change is hitting a baseball at the pins instead of rolling a bowling ball at the pins. The biggest problem with the game is going to be deciding what the "strike" will refer ...
