And Then I Invented Slavery.

in How Did My Life Come To This, I'm A Terrible Person

Adrian and I have a knack for inventions. And by inventions, I mean blatant plagiarism.

1. 1-900-Wrinkle-Sack

Me: “Why aren’t there old people phone sex lines?”

Adrian: “I think you just answered your own question.”

Me: “Not really sex lines, per se, but a number you can call to talk to some old coot about how shitty the weather is and why young’uns have no respect anymore. 1-800-Curmudgeon. Or 1-800-Hot-Nana for someone to tell you how passively aggressively proud of you they are.”

Adrian: “Noa. That’s the AARP.”

Me: “Well fuck.

 2. The Frankenstein of the Travel Industry

Adrian: “You know what the world needs?”

Me: “Your mom’s face?”

Adrian: “The world needs a place where you can go tell people where you want to travel, and they set up everything for you. Not a guided tour, but people who organize your itinerary: tickets, hotels, tours, the whole bit. That way you can just pack and go.”

Me: “You just invented the travel agency.”

Adrian: “I did not.”

Me: “…”

Adrian: “Shit.”

3. You Kids Get Your Tweets Off My Lawn

Adrian: “Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a website where you could make your own t-shirts and bumper stickers with your own sayings and drawings on them? That way you could wear what you wanted all the time, and you could write your own funny sayings.”

Me: “It would be awesome, and it totally is because it already exists. Has existed for many years.”

Adrian: “Oh.”

Me: “Sometimes when I talk to you, it’s like you’re 90-years-old and have never used the new-fangled interwebs, dagnabbit.”

Adrian: “Fuck off.”

4. I Need To Be Buried With A Lot Of Ice.

Me: “These fucking kids on America’s Got Talent are ridiculous. The coolest talent I had when I was a child was being able to evade people while running around naked.”

Adrian: “That’s still one of your better talents.”

Me: “Your talent needs to be shutting the fuck up. These kids are going to be rich as shit at like, 9.”

Adrian: “Wrong. Their parents are going to be rich for doing pretty much nothing more than humping. I mean, the only investment opportunities at age 9 are in Lisa Frank and Thundercats.”

Me: “You know how when you go to a sperm bank and then you get to pick out which jizz is the smartest and most handsome and has the least chance of turning out dentally-challenged banjo players?”

Adrian: “I don’t like where this is heading. Did you just really use the phrase Dentally Challenged?”

Me: “Do you think some people do that with adopted kids? Put them through physicals and tests, like boot camp, to have their best chance at having that genius phenom who’ll support them forever? Maybe that’s why Angelina Jolie has all those kids; to find her Highlander or to do her taxes. Holy shit. Did she adopt children for staffing purposes?”

Adrian: “There’s a constitutional amendment against all of those things. And a lot of regular laws. And moral boundaries and objections.”

Me: “Oh God. Did I just re-invent slavery?”

Adrian: “It must be so comforting to already know that you’re going to Hell when you die.”

Adrian and I can’t be the only ones with dumb ideas. What have you guys thought of or heard someone else think of?

Metta (the letter m) August 24, 2011 at 5:39 am

The fiancé and I are just full of good ideas.

A wife on call service. (no, not a hooker, a wife).
They bitch at you about stuff you haven’t done, they wash your shit for you, remember how you like your tea, and don’t have sex with you.

A pms damage mitigation system, where for a low subscription fee, women get send chocolates, hot water bottles, foot massage vouchers, chick flicks, etc once a month, and the males in the house get lists of shit they can’t say or do (or for the premium service, they get sent away for a week fishing or whatever)

I forget the others, oh and an advisory service for guys to get them to stop sticking their collective feet in their mouths with their women, where they get given translations of what they want to say, but in chick language…

Sadly, I’m also damn lazy. Apparently damn lazy trumps genius… there’s always some enthusiastic motivated idiot making money out of ideas I had years ago.

With this one though I actually thought about it, because I’d like it, but then I realised that I’m not like most women, and ‘most women’ seem to get riled up about really dumb stuff, and this might be exploiting stereotypes or contributing to the negative view of womynkind or something. Then the rampaging Godzilla feminazis would hunt me down…

I think they have that Wife service in Japan. Which is awesome.

I love the idea of having a universal translator with “Chick,” and “Chick with PMS” as options. It would save Adrian a lot of misery.

Metta (the letter m) August 24, 2011 at 5:38 pm

Unfortunately, I don’t think they’ve gotten to the stage where a computer can think ahead enough steps to save someone from making a woman angry or upset about something (or everything). It would explode trying. Maybe when they have quantum computers actually working…

“It must be so comforting to already know that you’re going to Hell when you die.”
This is why we keep you around, Adrian.
The dumbest thing I ever invented was the riding vacuum cleaner. I even drew pictures (which, at age 8 or so, I referred to as “schematics”) and tried to get Dear Sweet Mama to send it off to the patent office. I have NO IDEA how big your house would have to be for one of these… but I thought it was GENIUS. I also invented snap together apartments (think enormous Legos) for low-income housing… until I was told that already exists. I am good at inventing things that already exist.

Hoody Hoo August 25, 2011 at 6:36 am

I would LOVE to have that system. I have a habit of waking up around 4 am, and then for the last couple hours that I sleep, I have the most fucked up dreams anyone could imagine. I think it would make a great TV Show as well, in the America’s Funniest Home Videos format. “America’s Weirdest Subconscious.”

Kelly August 24, 2011 at 8:19 am

Since I lost my creativity about the time I entered puberty, I’ll go with one that my dear daughter came up with a few days ago: “Mom, can I go get my rubber band gun?” “Sure, but I don’t think we have any cans for you to shoot at.” “Oh, I don’t want it for that. I want to see if I can turn the tv off and on with it, isn’t that a cool idea?” “Um, can’t you just use the remote?” “Oh.”

In my not so sober days, I really wanted someone to have a delivery service where I could call them completely blasted out of my mind and they could go get me Taco Bell, a case of Busch Light, a pack of Marlboro lights, and a Reese’s blizzard. That would have been magical. Hell, I still wish for that.

Gold. Fucking Gold.

Jaclyn August 24, 2011 at 8:21 am

Obviously you didn’t take into consideration that people who are buying sperm and adopting babies already have a shitload of money. Because, let me tell you, that shit is EXPENSIVE. My husband and I looked into procuring some sperm before we found out our insurance would cover part of our IVF because he has very bad sperm. And you know how much money they want for sperm? A fucking LOT. Like $600 a pop. That’s fucking prostitution if I’ve ever seen it. All I could think was “maybe I’ll just find a drunk guy in a bar who looks like my husband”. And adoption? Easily $20,000. Little Maddox and Zahara SHOULD be doing her taxes. And Caitlyn should be doing mine, because she isn’t adopted but she did cost me a LOT of money.

Johi August 24, 2011 at 8:53 am

My husband is constantly inventing shit, or at least shitty ideas. But hey, I try to be supportive….

My favorite:
Our almost 2 year old was climbing out of his crib, hence signaling a coming transition to a “big boy bed”. Instead of making arrangements for this transition, my husband wanted to” invent a lid, made of slatted wood and hinge it on one side and lock it on the other.” Because, that would keep the baby in his bed….

I said, “That is called a CAGE, and I’m pretty sure that it is illegal to keep you child in a cage.”

He said, “Hmmmm. Well…”

And I said, “Seriously, it won’t happen. Invent something else, preferably not a baby product.”

And this is (only one of the many many reasons) why the world needs women.

Mom2Nora August 26, 2011 at 8:15 am

“They’re animals too.” I LOVE that you said that. I once told some moms that I thought I had learned a lot about raising a kid from my prior experience with two adopted (adopted=untrained) dogs and I recommended that everyone hone their parenting skills on dogs to avoid adding more ill-behaved children to the world. I would have thought from their reactions that I had said, “I buried two bodies in my back yard.” I’m not sure if they were appalled by my comparison of kids to dogs or my suggestion that not everyone should procreate. Hmmm…. this is why I don’t get a lot of play dates with the other moms. I’m just not good at keeping these thoughts to myself.

Noa August 28, 2011 at 9:17 pm

People are usually just as stupid when they train animals, too. Grace has dogs come in to her clinic all the time that are massively obese, and the owners say, “Well, she’ll only eat table scraps.”

OF COURSE your dog will only eat scraps because that’s all you feed him. Put out some kibble, that bitch will eat when it’s hungry, just like toddlers will eat that fucking waffle if they know that waffle is the only option.

Why are there no licenses for childbearing?

anna August 24, 2011 at 10:37 pm

They already have something like this (admittedly it’s not so cage-like, but same idea) – it’s called a Crib Tent: http://www.amazon.com/Tots-Mind-Cozy-Crib-White/dp/B00014PLAY/ref=sr_1_1?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1314243401&sr=1-1

I actually came up with a good invention once — a lock for shopping carts, like the locks on baby strollers. You just walk your cart up to your car, slam that thing down with your foot, then unload without any rolling away worries. I still don’t know why somebody hasn’t done this.

As far as a travel agency, I need one that would take my list of all the things I like to do and figure out where to send me, then convince the Hubs to take the time off and make sure he puts in his request early. I also probably need a mediator so we don’t kill each other in the middle of packing and schlepping. The actual travel part is easy.
Andi Davies recently posted..They’re BAAAACK…….

barefootorbust August 24, 2011 at 12:17 pm

They used to have those on carts at a grocery store I used to shop at in the last town I lived in. They were little levers that you step on and tilt down to lock and up to unlock. According to a friend of mine who worked there they had to get rid of them because when you pushed the carts together the mechanisms would get stuck and when you got the carts apart finally the levers were useless.

Noa August 24, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Fuck. You just ruined all my dreams.

Oh God, that cart idea is brilliant, because I apparently shop at the only grocery store who’s parking lot is mostly on a hillside, and I’m getting really sick of chasing my catfood down.

barefootorbust August 25, 2011 at 11:10 am

All grocery store parking lots have a little tilt to them. They are designed that way so that when it rains the water runs into the gutters instead of puddling in the parking lot. Doesn’t help those of us who have to shop there, though.

Maybe breaks that are kind of like the ones on walkers? they lock at the handle instead of at the wheel….

There used to be a Chinese food restaurant in my town that was also a liquor store. When me and my friend John were in high school, he’d call up and say “I’d like to order one egg roll… (lowers voice) and a 40.” Then the Chinese guy would say “YOU 21?” And John would say “(even lower voice) Yes I am.” And then the guy would say ok 5 minutes. And that’s how you get a booze delivery service.

And just like that my dreams of being an inventor of quality children’s items was burst. SIGH. Did I tell you about the other idea I had for keeping a bottle in a baby’s mouth……

When my daughter was 3 years old and we were working on introducing time outs, I had the idea for a time out bench – like the benches in a police station where cops handcuff perps so they know they’ll find the perp still sitting there when they return in a few minutes. Yep, that kind of time out bench – because really that would be a lot easier than walking the kid back to time out 25 times for what should have been a two minute episode. Funny but the other mommies looked at me strangely and we don’t get a lot of play dates .

I was a medical genius in third grade. It is NO WONDER my boyfriend is a doctor–he sees mad potential in me and is just waiting to cash in on that. Back then, I learned that most things in our bodies traveled around through our bloodstream, including the bad things. I figured out that the bad things probably are shaped differently, or different sizes, or whatever, than the good things. I invented a filtration system. It would take all the bad shit and hold on to it in one place that would be easily emptied or, when necessary, changed out. It would let the good shit through. In my mind, this wonderful blood-filter would probably solve all disease ever.

Now I realize I invented kidneys. FUCK yeah. (To my credit, MY kidneys would filter out diseases. Not like these bullshit kidneys we’re provided with at birth.)

You’re a kidney-enhancing genius. Like a brita filter for kidneys.

So, when I was younger, my sister and I had piano lessons after school. One day, my dad forgot to pick us up. We walked home. This was our conversation.

L.A.: I’m tired.
Sister: Me too. We should come up with a way that we could get home faster. Like if our shoes had wheels.
L.A.: Those are roller blades.
Sister: Yeah, but so we could sit down.
L.A.: That’s a bicycle.
Sister: Yeah, but where we didn’t have to work. Like paid someone to wheel us along.
L.A.: That’s a bus.
Sister: But it wouldn’t be full of people.
L.A.: That’s a taxi.
Sister: But it wouldn’t be so expensive.
L.A.: That’s our father picking us up.
Sister: But he forgot to pick us up!
L.A.: THAT’S WHY WE’RE WALKING.

Fin.

And this is why they never should have taken rickshaws out of business.

Once, on the way to work, I invented trains. The thought process went like this:

They shouldn’t allow all these freaking 18-Wheelers on the highway during rush hour, it screws all of us! They should only be allowed to drive during non-busy times… But, I suppose the shipping/trucking industry would object because it would slow them down a lot… Ok, they should have their own lane that’s separate from the rest of the road… Then they could have more than one trailer behind them! One truck could drag two, three, four, or even more trailer and then… wait… shit… that’s a train.

After growing up in a town where the trains regularly split the town in two with no way to get across to the other side (enjoy, Emergency Services! Shove that heart attack up your ass) I can honestly say I now the point of 18-Wheelers.

I still maintain, however, that you should have to pass a separate driver’s license to drive on certain roads so that way you’re not GOING 50 IN THE FAST LANE WHILE WE’RE ALL TRYING TO BEAT RUSH HOUR, WHORE.

You have a patent lawyer on retainer, right?

I recently came up with an idea for a fabulous iphone app for chicks like me that over call/text dudes I like or am dating which makes me look like a desperate freak. The app would be called “dick blocker” and would be a combo between a number blocker and an alarm clock. Say you just meet a guy and get his number and he’s super hot but you don’t want to look desperate. You want to wait a few days: you go into the app, click on his number, and specify the amount of days you need access to his # blocked without him knowing, of course. NO MATTER HOW badly you want to cave in, your phone won’t let you. Once you set that shit, you are LOCKED IN. And you aren’t allowed to view the number either so there is no temptation to call from a different line. Also, every time you TRY to call or text during the blocked phase, your iphone will talk you out of it with self affirmation phrases like, “you are good enough to be needed, not needy.” Or if it’s a bad boy asshole you are addicted to as i often am, your phone might say, “you are too good for him. Ignore him so he knows it.” IF you are over-the edge, trying to figure out how to unlock the block, your iphone will get drastic at that point and say, “back away from the phone, you clingy desperate freak. Is that what you want to be??? A clingy desperate freak??”
THAT IS A KICK ASS FUCKING IDEA FOR AN APP, RIGHT??? Too bad I don’t know how to MAKE an app and I don’t know anyone who does. I was thinking about running this by my brother the engineer and putting the word out amongst his fellow smart friends. SO if this app comes to fruition, you can say you read it here first :) And if anyone gets cute and tries to RIP OFF my idea, PREPARED TO GET SUED FOR LOTS OF MONEY, MOTHER FUCKER!

Holy shit. That really is a brilliant idea. You could even get into the scheduling business for booty calls. Mary’s a Wednesday, Cindy is a Saturday, and DO NOT GET THEM FUCKED UP.

I’m pretty impressed, I’m not gonna lie.

My sister http://www.jennischetti.wordpress.com hint hint it’s funny! Read it! Anyway, SHEEEEE suggested ALSO that this app have a built in breathalizer so that you HAVE to breath into your iphone before making the call or text to avoid DRUNK OVERTEXTING AND CALLING!!!!!! And this bitch just CAME up with this right off the top of her head. Amazing! ANd I LOVE your booty call idea!!!!!! Like so now it would be a combo between a blocker, an alarm, a booty icalendar with alerts, and a breathalizer! We are awesome!!!
