Eatable Tooth Picks And Other Food Related Items Printer Friendly Version
If you want your drinks with an olive or your pre-dinner snacks while entertaining guests, then you want them alive (they are more fun that way!). So, you simply make everything from finger sandwhiches to finger food stuck with something that can be digested. Wood can splinter and you can choke on them. You can make candy tooth picks and enjoy extra flavor. The kids would love to suck on a hard sugar cinnamon tooth pick as well, so it is fun for the whole family. Other products like utensils, cups, plates or other items related to eating and drinking can be made eatable as well. Or they could simply be a kind of candy anyone could partake in!
Reward: Tons of them but, not literally!

Writers Actually Get Paid for Writing Printer Friendly Version
Ever wanted to write something? But procrastinated every time? I bet you know a few other people who also feel the same way. So did I - we started getting together every week, for a couple hours, and reading over each other's work, offering suggestions. If you haven't added more to your story, or written anything new, you have to pay a fine into the pot (we used $5.00). If you don't show up or come late, we fined each other $2.00. This all goes into a pot. When somebody finishes and edits a story, then we throw a small party (just dinner and drinks) and all parade off to the post office to mail it off. For mailing a story you get $10, for having it rejected you get a consolation prize of $15.00 and if it gets published, you get all the money in the pot! Of course adjust the fines and rewards for your own needs - the idea is that it gives you an incentive. We also offer 'scholarships' and 'grants' of $50.00 or less - like if one of us is having a hard week and the paycheck is stretching thin, we are having to work extra and give up writing time because of it, then we can apply for 'scholarship' and if we all vote ok, then you can be given a little $$$ to tide you through - if you DON'T write during that time you have to pay it all back, but if you DO write, it becomes a 'grant' instead. This system has gotten several of us published.
Reward: If you use our idea, it'd be great if you could tell everyone about it. If you had enough people doing this, then the rewards for writing could be a real financial help even without getting published.

Car Oven Shelf Printer Friendly Version
This is actually an idea that was briefly used by Ford in the 1956 station wagon but was dropped and I don't think it has been used since. It is perfectly possible to literally cook with your car. When you are driving, your engine heats up to a very high temperature and on a long drive it effectively creates a perfect oven environment for food. This can be done anyway - all you need to do is to wrap your food tightly in tin foil and somehow fix it to the engine. It works especially well with food such as chicken breast, vegetables or baked apples/bananas. There should be no risk of dangerous fumes entering your food as their should be no dangerous fumes in your engine! If there is: get it checked out!
The problem with this cooking technique is that food can easily slip off the engine and through onto the road underneath. Bye bye oven-cooked prawns in spicy sauce.
I propose that new cars be built with a special shelf or compartment, either inside the engine or somewhere where heat can be redirected from the engine to cook the food. Somewhere that is clean from any engine oil and holds food in place. This would be particularly good in camper vans. For long journeys this is REALLY great, and it is also putting all that waste heat energy to good use!
Reward: A free prototype for my car, and maybe you can cook me an engine-fresh dinner. Thank-you!
