Inventors are cool


Many years ago, a friend of mine came to my apartment and told me how easy it would be for someone to break in and violate me and steal everything I owned. He told me this because he had an idea for an amazing door security system. He explained the whole thing to me through a very thick tequila fog and, as I recall, it didn't make much sense but sounded really...secure.

Flash forward about ten years and I'll be damned if he didn't go get the whole thing engineered and patented and put on the market. On top of sounding like it could keep grizzly bears out of your house, the thing is even good looking.

It does look good, kind of like something you might see in a castle. Good for him!

Cool. I might have to get me one of those.

I'm married to an inventor (sort of - sort of married, not sort of an inventor) and I think they're crazy. One of our patent lawyers has suggested that all inventors are, by definition, crazy.

It looks good, and effective, but since all of the space to make my new apartment accessible is ground-level windows, I'm going to pass. I wonder how long it'll be before I want one of those for every square inch of my windows?

Sophmom - Crazy? Yeah, crazy.

Lorna - I'll tell him to invent something for windows.
