Configurable Ear Plugs Printer Friendly Version
With unwanted emails it's easy: You can place any address on a "No thank you!" list, and you will never again receive an email from that particular person (unless he or she changes the address, but that's a different story). Wouldn't it be wonderful to have the same options for the "junk" that reaches your brain via your ears?
Boys, just imagine: You can talk to your buddies without having to listen to what your girlfriend is telling you about her latest shopping trip. - Girls: Annoyed by that idiot sitting next to you at the bar who has been talking to you for more than half an hour, although you have showed no sign of interest? Just configure your ear plugs accordingly, and you will still be able to chit-chat with that handsome barkeeper.
Or just imagine you are stuck in a train compartment on your way to an important meeting, and the baby next door keeps screaming all night. Or maybe you are the mother, and you do want to hear your baby, but not the voice of that idiot complaining...
There would be infinite applications for this invention.
Reward: A lifetime supply of configurable ear plugs would be just the thing for me.

Kids Compartments in Trains Printer Friendly Version
There are compartments for smokers and non-smokers, there are even women's compartments. Now, why aren't there any compartments for kids?
A lot of people (like myself) enjoy a peaceful train ride. They can do some work, read a book, or simply take a nap. However, all of this is suddenly over if a small child enters the place. I've experienced unbelievable scenes in the last years, including hours of hysterical screaming and provocative stomping around. One time I've even had a used diaper flung in my direction. The mother's only reaction was to be amused about how her little sweatheart had done the trick.
Now, the point is, I really don't care how other people bring up their kids. However, most PARENTS have bad manners and don't realize that not everything their little ones might be doing is necessarily a treat to everybody else. The easiest solution would be to create kids' compartments. Everyone would benefit, most of all the children who would get a chance to play with other kids during the train ride, which would make their trip much more enjoyable.
Reward: A free train ticket.
