    I agree... That just makes me think of the jam as blood. Gross. Maybe it could help people trying to lose weight though by killing their appetite.

    Okay, you have me curious now. What is the reason you get implants if you're not a woman?

    Sorry to see the frisbee life saver guy not make it. Thought his invention could have really used the money to improve it.

    Hate to admit it but the paper bedding lady probably has a great idea. And with Mr. Know It All's knowledge about paper products they could probably come up with something better than diaper liners.

    I agree.

    What's with the little sling thingy anyway? I think it's over-engineered. Wouldn't a simple hole in the plate be enough? The tapered cup would slide into the hole.

    And don't they already make a plastic plate like this?

    I came to post the same thought. A hole in a plate to hold the cup is all you need. Reinforce the hole with plastic so it would be easy to lift the cup in and out. Obviously this plate is for foods that are not runny or say, radishes or olives that could escape when taking a sip.

    I think his idea of having the spiral bottom in the hole, that retracts when the cup is removed, is to eliminate the possiblity that you would lose some of your dinner when taking a sip.

    Wendiness, not sure what you mean. Any body fluids quickly degrade and are environmentally friendly.

    I am tired of the tears. Quitting ones job or selling the family jewels to develop a game is way out of kilter.

    It isn't really a spelling game, although that's how it was presented. All it does is picks a letter that the players use to start a word (or did it actually give the word--I'm a bit fuzzy on that point,) and acts as a timer. It doesn't check the spelling of the word. Apparently, that is left to the players, which reminds me of my all-time favorite sign. One side said "Car for sail" and the other said "Car for sell."
    I could just picture two intellectual giants arguing over which was correct, and compromising by using both variations.

    selling the family jewels
    Who did THAT?? Rings, necklaces, brooches, I can see, but NOT THE FAMILY JEWELS!!

    For the plate, why not have a paper cup holder (like a CD-ROM/coffee cup holder in a car) that slides or flips out from the bottom of the plate. Glues on, easy to add to the assembly lines since you don't have to change the original plate design.

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