New Concept In Drinking

It's called Easy Drink.

Using the drinking fountains will not be filled with water leaks. Drinking the water will not be raise your head.

Do you ever feel inconvenient to use the drinking fountains, because of the PET water bottles too big as a result can't filled water successfully?

Do you ever feel neck discomfort when using the PET water bottle has to raise your head.

The "Easy Drink" change 45 degree on mouth of the PET water bottle. It's can improve the inconvenience of people using PET water bottle and reduce the wastage of water resources.

Dead People As Ammo

Another good idea from Alabama: Company will load loved ones' ashes into ammunition.

holysmoke A pair of Alabama conservation enforcement officers think they've come up with the perfect way for avid hunters to honor their loved ones for eternity.

Officers Thad Holmes and Clem Parnell have launched Holy Smoke LLC, a company that will, for a price, load cremated human ash into shotgun shells, and rifle and pistol cartridges.

It's the perfect life celebration for someone who loves the outdoors or shooting sports, Parnell says.

From their web site:

Our prices start at $850.00 for 250 rounds (one case) of high quality, hand loaded leadshot shotshells in gauges .410, 28ga., 20ga., 16ga., 12ga. and 10ga. Other specialty loads such as migratory bird loads like bizmuth or steel, slugs and buckshot are the standard cost of $850.00 per case plus the current market cost for specialty loads.

Finger Soap

Here's some very realistic looking Finger Soap.

Four little soap fingers that look just like the real thing.  Realistic detail on all sides of the finger, including knuckle wrinkles and finger nails.


Fingers are different lengths, varying between 2 inches to 2.75 inches long.

At $4.99, they're cheap. But they aren't life-size. My pinky finger is 2.75 inches long.

(Thanks Kent)

Advances In Egg Cracking

Because cracking an egg is so difficult it requires a special kitchen tool: Amco No Fuss Silicone Egg Cracker.

egg cracker

This Amcon no fuss silicone egg cracker takes the fuss, mess and germs out of egg cracking. It perfectly cracks eggs-no more fishing egg shells from the bowl and there is no need to ever touch an egg.

Oh, I see. It's a germ prevention device. In any case, it's sold out.

A Razor In Your Pocket

For shaving emergencies: Carzor-Card Shaped Razor & Mirror.

This quirky design really looks at the needs of the man on the go and recognizes there won't always be time to shave in the morning. What does one do, when they turn up to work scraggly faced? Simply whip out this bad boy in the bathroom and remove the offending hairs.

When you detach the razor part of the card, the rest can be used as a mirror, and it will fit snugly in your wallet. You can even choose how to scent the razor- with mint, sandal, lemon, ocean, and orange on offer.


Who came up with the idea that you need a mirror to shave? I don't need a mirror. I know exactly where my face it.

Zombie Feet

Slippers that will make you look like you have zombie feet: Zombie Feet Sandals.

zombie sandals

They need to show a photo of someone actually wearing them. If your foot color doesn't match the zombie skin color, the effect is ruined. But you could probably wear long pants to cover up your actual feet.

Is Funnel-It Right For You?

Here's a product for you: FUNNEL-IT QUICK BOTTLE TRANSFER.

Reduce the clutter of half used bottles. Funnel-It bottle drainer saves you money by significantly reducing waste, allowing you to easily transfer an old bottle to a new one without mess.


It costs $4.98, and another $4.98 for shipping. If you use it only for ketchup, how long will it take to break even? I created a simple spreadsheet model to perform the calculations. Here's how it works out for me:


I think we use three bottles of ketchup per year (probably less). I have no idea how much a bottle costs, but I guess $2.99. I also figure that we normally throw away 1.5% of each bottle -- the amount that we would recover using Funnel-It. I also estimated that each use of Funnel-It would take about 3 minutes (that includes finding it, setting it up, and cleaning it afterwards).

Under this scenario, Funnel-It would pay for itself in 74 years. During that time, I would have spent a total of 11.1 hours of my life using the product.

Some families use a lot of ketchup, and they buy it on sale. Here's a "high ketchup / low price" scenario that show a breakeven time of only 29.3 years.


Please note: This is a simple ketchup-only model. If you use Funnel-It for other types of bottles, the break-even time would be reduced significantly.

I posted this model online, as a Google Doc. You can try it here: Funnel-It Break Even Analysis Model. Just change the numbers in the ASSUMPTIONS section, and the numbers in the RESULTS section will magically update.

Complete Men’s Outfit For Under $19

In this economy, it's nice to know that you can still buy nice clothes and not spend your entire paycheck. I put together a complete men's outfit, from products available at Amazon.


Starting at the top:

There you have it. A complete outfit for $18.93 (plus shipping, of course). You might be able to do better at a thrift shop, but remember: These are brand new items, never been worn.

The surprising thing is the shoes. I figured I could find some decent shoes for about $3.00. That underwear seems expensive too. If you skip the underwear, the total goes down to $14.94.

Maybe tomorrow I'll create an outfit for the ladies.
