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

American English in schools Printer Friendly Version
All over the world, teachers are obsessed with the idea of teaching kids the "real" British English. This obsession is making it unnecessarily hard for people to actually learn the language. British and American English are different in many ways, and depending on your mother-tongue, one flavor should be considerably easier to learn than the other. British English for example has a very hard and distinct pronunciation of consonants, while American English is softer and blurrier. For people in certain countries, it would make sense to learn the type of English that is closer related to their own language, resulting in quicker learning and less accent.

Disposable Fast food nipples and sippy cups Printer Friendly Version
My idea is to have disposable nipples that screw onto kids milk jugs at fast food restaurants. Restaurants can keep these on hand just as they do straws and lids for regular disposable cups. I also would like to see disposable sippy cup lids that latch onto the regular disposable cups. I am a mother and found this would be helpful when I forgot to bring my childs bottle or sippy cup.
