Stupid inventions

Today I thought of an idea for an invention. Why not combine a DAB alarm clock with a remote control helicopter? If you don't turn the alarm/radio off it flies around the room like a cunt until you get up. On deluxe models it could have weapons that shoot rubber bullets or cold water at you, accompanied with that missile sound.

 

This could have probably gone in the random thoughts thread.

Sure I saw a blue alarm clock the other day which runs/rolls away.

 

My contribution to this thread is: umbrellas

 

I am in disbelief at their usage in 2011. I mean, why?

 

1) It's water, ffs.

2) The pointy-sticky-out-bits take the eyes out of people my height.

3) It congests pavements further (already a problem in London).

4) From an engineering point of view, how often do they break?

5) Hats do the same job, but don't require a two-foot radius around you.

6) You have to hold them.

 

They're dumb.

But what is your solution?

A remote control fighter jet to take down that helicopter.

 

You could launch it with a snooze button! This sounds ace.

Anti-aircraft guns to combat the snooze Jet, the potential growth of this product is immense.

Only short people seem to use umbrellas and all of them seem to think of them as some sort of weapon or protection. The simple solution would just be to cover yourself with some sort of plastic bag or some sort of impervious face mask.

 

:lol:

 

Hundreds of fucking Jasons walking down the high street.

Umbrellas stop you soaking with water. I hate that feeling of stepping into a dry room after being in the rain without an umbrella.

 

My invention is a cigarette lighter, to burn the piece of paper with Beren's idea on... :shifty:

It's people like you, man.

 

Wear non-absorbent clothing then. Instead you subject everyone else to your spatial encroachment bullshit. It's dangerous too. You're putting your stylistic needs over the optical safety and convenience of the public at large.

 

Sorry, like - it's just this one thing, just this one irrational hatred of umbrellas supported fully by legitimate and rational reasons. Probably traceable to some childhood trauma, but I'll be fucked if I can remember what it is.
