    Or have a reusable plastic plate that fits under the paper plate with the cup holder.

    It's been awhile since I had a baby but there was a big contraversy about disposable diapers vs. cloth, the main point being that the manufacture of all those disposable diapers uses up resources and creates byproducts released into the environment (not the end result, pardon the pun). The other side said cloth diapers resulted in phosphates in the water system because of laundering.

    Bottom line is disposable or cloth (diapers or sheets) aren't exactly environmentally friendly anyway. I don't know the data, but I'd think cloth has a less negative impact.

    I'm just bothered by all of the disposable things being invented. They don't just disappear when we're done with them and their manufacturing has a negative impact.
    What?! Am I still here?

    That's what my brother said! He also faked actually being on one of those paper roll things: "Wait ... hold on ... [fidgeting] ... oh, I gotta turn over? Wait a minute... [more fidgeting] F***, it ripped! Roll out some more!"

    I guess you had to be there, but it was hilarious.

    Also, he had this to say about the Spelling Game Guy: "Can they zoom in on his face any closer? I can taste this guy's tears."

    I really don't get why the disposable sheets could get three votes especially one from Doug. This is not an invention at all, didn't she buy those paper from the store?

    I think the issue is not whether the plate can be manufactured or the costs to do so. It's just not going to work, the food is going to fall through the hole when the cup is not there.

    But what happens when the cup is removed and food migrates over the hole? Then you have to use the bottom of the cup to plow away the food. Maybe the solution is to put a rim around the hole.

    earlier post......surprising the inventor didn't think of it first,

    ditto with taking away food space.
