Like this man – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Graham_Bell.
Or maybe not even that historically important…Maybe like Earl. Earl is the man who built and lived in the house which my wife and I are buying. Earl and his wife were the only owners of the house. Earl had a gift for gadgetry. Among other things, he designed a built-in ironing board in the kitchen, and a number of other built-in cabinets throughout the house, with handy little details like a piece of doweling wrapped with velcro…to hang your ties, of course!
But perhaps the most inventive feature I’ve found thus far is a fishing bob hanging from the ceiling of the garage. It took me a bit to figure this one out, but it’s the hint to tell the driver that they’ve backed the car in just right.
With this kind of ingenuity, we can save the world.
