A TV Day in Your Life Printer Friendly Version
On dvd, an entire day of tv from a day in the 50's or 60's. Commercials and all. Let's say nyc market. Lots of us old baby boomers from there. I know I was a tv addict. The old cartoons gigantor, astroboy, and 8th man. The soupy sales show. That weird show on channel 5 with the chin puppets. Dawn of sesame street and the spanish stuff. Time tunnel, my mother the car, gunsmoke, my three sons, laugh-in, voyage to the bottom of the sea, hogan's heros, star trek, lost in space, mr, chicken, it's about time, the dating game, dark shadows, real saturday morning cartoons, davy and goliath, twilight zone, the outer limits, ed sullivan...
There were only a handful of channels. 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, 4, and 2. Low res black and white moving to color somewhere in the 70's?
Ok, major legal trouble with copyrights, but that's what lawyers were created from the sewer slime for. The station program records might still exist. the commercials might still exist. Hell, the equipment to play the old format recordings might still exist.
Reward: a copy

InfraCode Automotive Black Box Printer Friendly Version
If you're anything like me, you probably get frustrated when you're driving your car on to the interstate and, as you are about to get on, some idiot decides to slow down/speed up trying to keep you from getting on in front of him/her, causing you to run off the road and him/her going berserk and crashing into the concrete barrier inbetween traffic directions. The next thing you know the police arrive and they are trying to figure out who's at fault (and you know that it is all yours - sarcasm of course).
Well any way, my idea is a device that would record all events that take place from the time you start your car including start time, time drive engaged, acceleration times/speeds, stop times, braking points/times, impacts. etc. That way, when you get in an accident, the police officer could point his handy InfraCode receiver at an infrared transmitter, say on the dash of the cars involved, and download all the information he needs to determine who is truly at fault. By knowing the information that I have spoken of about all vehicles involved, it would be very easy to determine who is at fault. Maybe even a program could be written to interpret the data and come to a conclusion within a few seconds. Actually this would be quite simple to implement as opposed to some other ideas.
Reward: 100% credit.

Geese for the homeless Printer Friendly Version
Problem #1: During the summer months here in Minnesota, it seems that there is geese everywhere and goose poo everywhere (expecialy in suburban areas). I hear of people going to North/South Dakota and having an unlimited bag limit on their goose harvests (I bet most of the geese they harvest go to waste). It seems that we have a problem with an over-population of geese. It's just gross walking around a metro lake that is peppered with goose sh*t everywhere! We simply dont need all of these geese.
Problem #2: A lot of homeless people and they need food.
Solution: Why don't we have a team of professional certified people that go around in various metro areas and humanely harvest some of these geese. Also set up hunts in the Dakota's that are cheaper for hunters if they donate some of their harvest. If we can thin out some of these geese, maybe we won't have so much wasted game from people bringing home 50 geese from a unlimited bag hunt and not eating it. I certainly don't think that this would really impact the goose population too much if the DNR helps monitor the program. The geese can go to shelters and be served to help feed people in need. Goose certainly isn't like "phesant under glass", but to a hungry homeless person, it has more nutrition and better taste than a dirty sock. Beggars can't be choosers.
Reward: The opportunity to go on a "Donation Hunt" for free.
