Cigarette Pack Bottom Cigarette Pusher Printer Friendly Version
Like chap stick and lip stick you can't use them until you can get them to the surface. If each cigarette had a bottom that you could push the cigarette up then you could easily remove them (or one) from the pack. Right now you can't get the first or second cigarette out without dumping the whole pack out or squishing the cigarettes around the one you want until you've removed about the first five making room for any sized fingers to grab one out. We just provide a cicular segmented bottom under each cigarrete that extends below each one and you push up on the bottom of the one you want. Each cigarette gets it's own push up piece!
Easily implimented and manufactured at minimal cost since the materials need not be of any other product they don't already have readily available, such as the type of card board type paper used in hard pack cigarettes or any other material they have now. This would work on packs of gum and other tightly packed items.
Reward: To have these bottoms on all brands and pack types.

Paper Utensils Printer Friendly Version
Why make plastic utensils when paper can be just as durable? It makes no sense to make something to be thrown away every time you use them, when they can be replaced by a cheaper, bio-degradable, environmentally sound product that would hold up to hours of use. Paper can have many uses, but this is the best one. They make the paper plate, but forgot to make the rest out of paper. The knife, the fork, the spoon, the spork and everything else,could be paper, and then we would have a set that would just rot and never cause a problem to us, ever.
You always see the plastic utensils, around the garbage cans where they are supposed to be inside and then, someone comes along and breaks it, making hundreds of little garbage, waste, pieces of plastic, that can never be collected and litter the ground forever. It is also not safe for animals to have plastic in their stomachs when they come to eat the garbage we leave behind. If everything was paper then it would all be digestable as well. It would solve so many problems that there isn't room to write them all here but, when you compare plastic to paper, you obviously know the right answer to the best choice. It's Paper Utensils!

Cheaper Elevators Printer Friendly Version
Elevators (lifts in England) are expensive to install and require top room for the lifting gear. Would it not be possible to build elevators on Archimedes Screw principles - a rotating shaft moving small, single person platforms? No cables or wires to break. Can be used for two storey building.
Reward: Recognition for the idea.
