  1. that's cool... I can only imagine the uncontrolled chaos that it would create in my house when it comes time for brushing of the teeth. ie, lets put a marble, lego, etc up the plug and turn the water on full blast to see what happens.

  2. Another cool million to be made by someone with an idea, a simple one at that but better than any I have ever had when it comes to patented items or marketing.

  3. Reminds me of one of the simplest ideas of the 20th century, one that actually made its creator a million dollars - it was called EZ Wider. They were rolling papers about 1.5 times as much around as a regular rolling paper. Used to need 2 papers, glued together overlappoing, to have enough to easily roll a cigarette made out of a certain illicit weed. Then this guy had his idea and not only was it simple and smart but it saved paper too.

    Same guy, cannot recall his name, also had another million dollar idea called Pet Rocks. Then he lost money on Haley Scopes, telescopes made to view the return of Haley's comet. That one failed miserably. Why, because there were a gazillion inexpensive telescopes out there already and while useful it was not new. His other creations succeeded because they were new products, something no one had thought of before or at least that no one had produced before. While one of his successful ideas was useful in a practical manner, they did not have to be so as can be witnessed by the other which was pretty much useless. In fact while one succeeded because it was new (new size) and useful (used to roll cigarettes), the other succeeded because it was useless in any practical way. It was useless but it was fun along with being novel. Since it was fun to own and since it also was such a strange and novel idea, it had people buying them just to say they had one (the Pet Rocks).

    If only I had written down each of my 40 or 50 patent ideas over the years, then submitted them, maybe just one of them would have funded my kids through college and paid my mortgage.

    All the best,
