  1. I like the Insomnia Cookies and Cupcake ATM ideas. Euw on the "handy phone holder" idea. And I think women in stilettos should walk alongside the grates not over them. Just in case.

  2. The color changing nail polish and the cupcake machine are brilliant. The phone prop, not so much.

    1. I think most people would agree with you on the phone idea!!

  3. Our grocery store also has a shelf of free fruit for kids to munch on while their parents shop.

    1. Everybody with little kids, move to Oregon!! (You can stay with Stephen while you're house hunting.)

    2. Ditto here in Australia, the Woolworths chain of supermarkets.

  4. The date rape detecting nail polish should be sold with a taser gun.

  5. Some of these are brilliant. I agree with the date rape nail polish being the best. Joeh has a great idea for an add on to the invention.

    1. The add on should not even be optional, but automatic!!

  6. The date rape nail polish is brilliant for sure, and much better with the add on.

  7. Insomnia cookies. Drool.
    And hooray for the nail polish.

  8. I loved the dog photo idea. Mine actually respond better when I use the phone as opposed to the camera. With the camera they know the flash is coming and always look away.

  9. The dog parking spaces are my favorite. Not sure I understand the wine thing. It looks like whoever that refrigerator belongs to mainly survives on a diet of wine!
