My "list of ten things that ought to be invented" is not so inventive, apparently.
Some weeks back I asked the universe, why haven't these things been invented yet? And I got some answers from the universe:
1. A robot arm gas pump. A robot builds it. A robot washes it. Seriously, why do I still have to get out of the car?
Check out "Popular Science" online. Yes, they're testing robot gas pumps now.
2. Pre-made grilled cheese sandwiches. They wouldn’t even need real cheese.
These exist apparently. Blech.
3. Running shoes that massage your arches while you run. And maybe a knee brace with a heater in it.
The answer to this apparently, is a treadmill. Or a new recliner.
4. A lamp like sunshine. Way overdue. Current imitators inadequate
I've been looking at the wrong models, I am told. I stand corrected.
5. A wallet or purse with a screen. Actually you have to wonder why they don’t just put a screen on everything. Okay, a pumpkin with a screen on it.
Totally clueless here. Google Wallet is a virtual wallet. Samsung's is a REAL wallet with, yes, a screen.
6. On that topic, Google contact lenses. Solves the whole “creeping people out” problem with the glasses.
Being tested in Asia, I am told.
7. Fridges that cook. Like, duh?
Still waiting for this one.
8. An App that says “you’re going to regret this” in time to stop you from putting your hand around a wine glass. Where was this when I needed it Saturday at Moira’s?
This app is called "your spouse" and deserves more attention.
9. Asphalt that’s more resilient than a wedding dress.
Impossible in Canada, apparently. Get over it.
10. A radio station that knows Fleetwood Mac recorded something other than “Rhiannon.” Even a song about a different girl would be okay
How did I forget the Clinton Anthem, "Don't stop thinking about tomorrow?"
Dunno. I saw that on the convention broadcast in 1992, even, but still forgot.
