Idea against Aponea Printer Friendly Version
I have been diagnosed with a condition called sleep aponea meaning I snore badly and wake up my body many times during the night resulting in poor sleep patterns and constant tiredness. The traditional remedy is a process called CPAP where you sleep in a mask and air is forced down your throat to prevent your body thinking it's suffocating and unconsciously not resting, but as I live in the impoverished UK my local health service cannot afford to treat me, they also class it as an unimportant condition despite my doctor saying it could be fatal, read what you like into the UK's reputation for health provision, I would like to pay to have my treatment abroad but don't know how to process that part of it.
Anyways I have an idea of implanting metallic strips into my neck and then wearing a collar with magnets desined to attach to the strips to the same polarity so as to magnetically repel the strips when the throat constricts and prevent a blockage of the airway, therefore keeping the airway open and preventing aponea. Any ENT surgeons out there interested inusing me as a guinea pig?

Nasal Breath Strip Glue Printer Friendly Version
Instead of using a breathing strip with the spring action of the strip being bent, you simply replace that with a type of removeable glue that shrinks more than a standard glue and when you paint it on across the bridge of your nose; the shrinking will have the same outward pulling effect as the strip, but the glue will not fall or easily pull off, making it a superior product than a breathing strip to open nasal passages at night to breathe easier. This product should be packaged with the glue remover. And you could probably paint your whole nose for best results and in any color as well!
Reward: A relatively normal supply.

On the go grooming Printer Friendly Version
This item is mostly for on-the-go people. Business people who don't have a chance to freshen up before a meeting with disposable one time use deodorant strips, gel strips, toothpaste strips...etc. I know you have been on a date and wished you had gel for your hair, or after the gym needing a little deodorant or any other grooming aid.
Reward: credit and some strips
