leaf blowers. loud and useless. grab a rake and get some exercise, I've never seen anyone use a blower that couldn't stand to lose a few pounds. I do however like the newest variation, the leaf vacuum/mulcher.

I own one from my set too.

Some interesting concepts indeed.
There is a National Inventors Hall of Fame by the way.
LisaP should consider an application.

Thanks Al.. unfortunately (or fortunately?) they're not my ideas lol.. these are inventions that are already patented. I couldn't believe it when I saw them.. had to do a puzzle on them. I'll post the link when the puzzle is done so that you can all see the diagrams as well.. they are hilarious!

Thanks.. I didn't get Phrase 1.. how did it show? The only change I was made aware of was the word "intermittently" was changed to "sometimes" as it was longer than 13 characters

As promised, I have two devices that perform the Phrase 2 task. They're called eyes.

Sheesh!

I thought mine said it was "sweet for the seat of your pants"

Ken....hate to tell you this.............
Your eyes can see if you hit someone
but you need an abacus to keep count !!!!

I think Patents run out after about 50 years (swings)
Tradmarks and Copyrights also expire at
some point....and then it's in the public domain.
