Non-hazardous Hazard Lights Printer Friendly Version
You know when you flick that switch on the dashboard or steering column that has a red triangle marking on it, then all your turn signal lights start to flash simultaneously? Yeah right, the "four way flasher"... Aren't they used to show other drivers that a/ you're in trouble and here is your vehicle location, and b/ your vehicle is in a place or situation that warrants caution for other vehicles moving near it?
Well the trouble with that flashing, is that if the vehicle is partially covered, either by a building or other vehicles (parked or otherwise), or viewed from far, far away, there is no way to know whether its operating as a turn signal or as a hazard light. Right? So the 'message' is not certain to the observer.
Well, I've watched airplanes at nite, and know for sure that they arent UFOs, just by the way their lights flash. Bip-bip, bip-bip, bip-bip ...
Why not the same for cars????
If the Int'l Aviation Assoc.s have a problem with that, then just make it go bip-bip-bip, bip-bip-bip, bip-bip-bip .... incidentally, that's similar to Morse code for S-O-S. Right?
Car manufacturers, perk up! Tell me what you think about it.
[more where that came from]
Any electronics enthusiast cud easily create the circuitry for this in their car...

Hi Speed Rail System Printer Friendly Version
The U.S. presently has thousands of miles of Interstate Highway right-of-ways. Why not build a hi-speed elevated rail system that crosses the U.S. There is usually plenty of room in the medians. If the system is elevated there would be no need for crossing etc. The system could be built with ready-made concrete and steel components that would be easy to construct. These trains could have speeds in excess of 120 MPH. It could also have cars that would transport the family auto. In addition, it could be a public works project that would employ thousands of people similiar to the TVA and the building of the Hoover Dam.
Reward: I would like to travel across the country on such a train.

No More Dead Angles in Your Car Printer Friendly Version
Maybe it's time to replace our old fashioned rear-view and outside car mirrors with something new. What about those miniature cameras and an LCD placed in the dashboard. You can even try it yourself. No more dead angles.
Reward: Credit and maybe a car.
