Someone's Gotta Do It

You know the little plastic tubes in perfume bottles that carry the product up to the spritzer? I just found out that my cousin has a business in his garage that consists of two machines—that he designed and commissioned—that cut those tubes to the right length for non-standard sized bottles.

Quick, look around. What could you be providing to the world?

Crazy. Here's the problem I see: to invent something you usually need a certain amount of genius. To recognize something that NEEDS to be invented, you need a certain amount of common sense. Most people just don't have both genius and common sense...

(in my case I have neither, so I'm completely screwed.)

If the world needs some scummy avocado pits, I am golden! It's been quite a guacamole summer. Other than that, I gots nothin'.
