"The Silent Downpipe" Printer Friendly Version
The sound of running water can be soothing, but the gurgle of water rushing thru the downpipes at night can be annoying and keep you awake. Thus...The Silent Downpipe!
I envisage something that could be retro-fitted to existing pipes, but there would need to be versions for round and rectangular pipes. Or a totally new downpipe that can fit to new houses. Some understanding of the rotational direction of the water would be required. Anticlockwise in the southern hemisphere and reverse in the North.
Reward: Fame and fortune or a good nights sleep when it rains.

Insight on the outside Printer Friendly Version
People who stay in apartments/houses/anywhere with boring, depressing or even ugly views through their windows, will benefit from this. A tranquill forest scene or a sandy beach with the usual scenery, there are millions of suitable pictures. Place these pics: Size to extend past window's edges, in an advertising sign board type of frame. Attach this to the wall outside the window, so that the view from inside is now the picture you chose. What if you get bored with that picture? Well remember the old cameras with their roll of film? Use the same concept inside the frame i.e.: a tube on either side of the frame with the picture running across the window from tube to tube. Take it even further. Put a daylight sensitive switch or a timer on the invention, and fill the tubes with 30 different pics on a roll, a new one each day, which automatically changes because of your timer. Wouldn't you like to see a beautiful sunrise over the sea when you open your curtains? OR a tiger drinking water from a mountain stream? The list is endless.
Reward: Send me the blue print of the machine, so that I can have one built for myself.

Name Your House Printer Friendly Version
We could use adding more uniqueness and character to our homes and add that to our address. We could set up a real National Paid Directory of house addresses and there names with each name different from any other. We now name stars and boats so, why not our homes?! We could get really creative and it could reflect our families personalities or the house or anything you can imagine from any real or made up word or short sentence ever spoken from time immortal in any language you choose. It could make placing address look ups for any business or home on CD or at another company an easy process; you just need to enter a name of the house and the full address comes up since each is unique world wide or unique to your country.
Reward: Name one after me! That would be...Aaron Steven Burns. (Officially). But, please don't fraud my debit card.
