10 Inventions that Should Exist

Where my engineers at?


Foreword: I realize looking back now, that many of these inventions solve the first of world problems and no actual good is being done in the world of these inventions. But still, if any of these exist and are available for purchase, someone tells me. Or if anyone who reads this is an engineer, feel free to design, produce, and market one of these babies. You don't even have to give me the credit because I know how the saying goes, "Everyone dreams, engineers do." So I'm dreaming here that you'll be doing.

There are many excellent intriguing useful inventions. This list is not necessarily a collection of those things.

1. A way for your phone to scan your texts while you're napping to determine their importance, and then if they are deemed "People are making plans without me and I will have woken up after everything has been decided" level importance your phone will set of an alarm immediately.

2.Phones that never die, or phones that use movement to charge. I.e.: give that little thing a shake and it comes alive again. Advantage of this type of charging is that you can always shake your phone, (see if it were charged solarly there might not always be sun) but drawback it requires physical effort.

3. A quilt or duvet cover or comforter that changes temperature based on the temperature of your body. So this way if you start getting extremely cold in the middle of the night your blanket will realize that you stupidly forgot to turn on the heat and so will compensate with its warmness.

4. A way to be instantly dry as soon as you get out of the shower. Like maybe some sort of mass marketed huge fan that blasts you with a quick burst of warmish air and then you're 100p dry or maybe a lamp that you step under that evaporates the water from your skin.

5. A magic sunburn eraser. (this is a time sensitive issue) In the thrill of having an 79 degree day in February I got quite a strange sunburn that is particularly jarring because it is the middle of winter. I can deal with the pain but its the unsightly patches of red v white that really is bad.

6. Some sort of camera or maybe it could be a brain camera of sorts that takes a picture of exactly what you see. Phone or even real camera pictures sometimes really fail to capture the beauty of what you actually see. Maybe these pictures could only be viewed when wearing glasses that show the picture to reflect the full like 180ish view you see.

7. The ability to actually play music in your head. I would do so much better on tests if I could listen to music in my head whilst taking them. But then I suppose this brings up a question of academic integrity because someone could compose a song with all the answers and listen to it in their head whilst testing.

8. An actual cure for the common cold that zaps runny noses, dry coughs, and achy bones in one fell swoop.

9. A way for your PKW (phone keys wallet) to be bound to your body at times. Like perhaps your PKW all go into a little bag that magically shrinks them into the size of a postage stamp which then fuses to the back of your hand and then whenever you need them you can just press your finger into that square on the back of your hand and it'll be like the touch id on the iPhone and it will then unfuse from your skin, grow to normal size, and allow you to remove your belongings.

10. A drink that will replenish your sleep like Gatorade replenishes electrolytes. Ie your body literally thinks you have taken a 5 hour nap after each 8 ounce serving.

Anyone who knows how to make any of these please call me.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
