Why don't they invent....
1.A kitchen sink drain that can take the solid masses that a toilet drain does.
2. Coffee maker filters that have the amount premarked with the number of tablespoons of coffee needed. Using the method to decorate paper towels, only having it marked on the coffee filter so you can dump in what is good for five cups of coffee without measuring.
3.Cats that always look like kittens
4.A spray for CDs that never allow them to be scratched.
5. A heating system that heats the kitchen from the hot air produced by the fridge.
6. A printer which prints out your daily news on toilet paper which you can read in the bathroom and then flush it away after you are done.
7.A machine to grind up and sanitize all of the building debris in New Orland and press it into particle board for rebuilding.
8.Speaking of New Orleans, a mini sanitation devise that you screw into your kitchen faucet to make the water drinkable. Similar to a public drinking water system filter and treatment system.
9. Hot dog buns that match the number of hot dogs in a pack.
10. I was trying for No. 10, but I want to give the rest of you a chance. Have at it.

3. Here goes
1.A kitchen sink drain that can take the solid masses that a toilet drain does.

A toilet uses a lot more water to move its mass through the tubes. Its not a drain problem. Its a faucet problem.

2. Coffee maker filters that have the amount premarked with the number of tablespoons of coffee needed. Using the method to decorate paper towels, only having it marked on the coffee filter so you can dump in what is good for five cups of coffee without measuring.

Paper towels don't have to worry about scalding water passing through them and bleeding the textures into a food substance.

3.Cats that always look like kittens

Give us time.

4.A spray for CDs that never allow them to be scratched.

The actual CD is already encased in a scratch resistant plastic. Its not the CD that gets scratched. Its the plastic.

5. A heating system that heats the kitchen from the hot air produced by the fridge.

It doesn't produce a steady enough flow to be used. And it is less efficient than specifically heating an area.

6. A printer which prints out your daily news on toilet paper which you can read in the bathroom and then flush it away after you are done.

Inefficient compared to what is coming. Digital ink holds the possibility of buying one news paper and then downloading the text and data to it. A current is then passed through the digital ink which causes it to turn the appropriate face (black or white or color) outward. In this way you have the touch and feel of paper with the ease of use of digital technology.

7.A machine to grind up and sanitize all of the building debris in New Orland and press it into particle board for rebuilding.

Distribution and reclamation problems. SUch machines already exist and are used. But the destruction in NO is so extensive that trying to use just one form of reclamation would cause a bottleneck and cause everything to grind to a halt.

8.Speaking of New Orleans, a mini sanitation devise that you screw into your kitchen faucet to make the water drinkable. Similar to a public drinking water system filter and treatment system.

Such devices work for already relatively clean water. But the contamination in NO is so toxic that you need a full functioning waste reclamation plant to treat it all. Its not just a filter.

9. Hot dog buns that match the number of hot dogs in a pack.

Been done. Its a marketting thing.


10. I was trying for No. 10, but I want to give the rest of you a chance. Have at it.
