What's your million dollar idea?

    This got me thinking:

    Do you have a million dollar idea?

    The DST time change got me thinking... If I try to sleep in on Saturday or Sunday, Harley wakes me up by coming into my bedroom and whining for food. If I close the door he just whines more loudly outside the door.

    What about a food bowl with a timer? It either pours out food at a set time, or opens and unlocks the bowl. Pouring food out seems like a better idea because then you could program it for multiple feedings.

    Part two: I'd have to get up anyway because right after that he wants to go outside. I'm not keen on dog door flaps, but what about an RFID activated door? I have a sliding patio door to the back yard. It could be opened when he stands near it, on either side, so he can leave and reenter the house.

    There are already a number of timed food bowls for pets on the market. Sorry, someone beat you to it. One can be smartphone operated.

    Anyway, I'm not gonna tell you my million dollar idea. Cuz then it might become your million dollar invention!

    Yes, but Harley is too dumb to operate a smartphone.

    I'm serious. This device teaches lazy people like me how to finger pick. It's a set of five electrodes that stick on tendon areas of the fingers and a control box that sets the style of roll. If not an active least a sensory prompt to acquire the feel and muscle memory.

    I've always wanted to start a business paying people minimum wage to perform live music. I'd take orphans and other hopeless young people and house them in barracks, with a regimented daily schedule of practice, training, and classes, and offer reliable, affordable, and on-demand live music services. at the prices I offer, any business could afford to have some musicians play for 8 hours a day, five days a week. they'd wear uniforms and would not be allowed to leave the barbed-wire fenced compound without a day pass. I'd have rooms full of rows of song-writing sweatshops, where the orphans slave away writing lyrics and figured bass with hourly quotas, and other, older workers who stand by conveyor belts and discard defective songs as they come down the line.

    i like this idea. can we have a feature where it electrocutes you for flubbing a note? and can we make it a service?

    I want to take rocks I find outside on the ground...wash 'em up...put them in a box and sell them to folks as pets.

    I think it's just crazy enough to work...

    You're right! I googled. I like this one because I can leave a message.

    Exactly...then you'll need another idea to pay for the taxes.

    Wait, is there an idea in there? How much is it gonna cost me?

    Why would I tell you my million dollar idea? (And, it's a good one, too!) So you can steal it? Yeah, right!

    Now, any electrical engineers (that's who I need to design the damn thing) here who want to split a million bucks?

    OK, so, twenty odd years ago my wife and I did kids’ discos. I built all of the lights my self and designed and built a bubble machine. The kids went mad for it, nothing like it on the market anywhere. Looked at a patent but couldn’t raise the cash. At one gig, a guy was looking very closely at it, someone told be he’d even taken a couple of pics. It would fill a typical hall with pretty impressive size bubbles in a couple of minutes. Anyway, about a year after the ‘spy’ incident, Maplin had one on the market, the design concept, wands, tank and blower, were identical to mine. Really feel I lost out, not, probably on a million, but certainly a nice earner.

    Set up a social website that collects ‘million dollar ideas’ from users and gives them 1% if it makes a million.

    Yeah, but look what's happened to Maplin now! They didn't sell enough bubble machines.
