Things That Should Be Invented

We all have that thought, "why hasn't anyone invented this yet?"

Are you ever going through a normal day and think of an invention that would make that specific task that much easier? It happens to me, and apparently others, more often than we think. While we're doing laundry, making the bed, driving to work, getting ready for a date, or simply eating dinner, these thoughts just come to us. Now, if only they would really be invented. Once I realized that these random inventions come to all of us, I decided to ask my friends and family what they have thought of.

Machine that makes the beds

Teleportation machine

Necklace de-tangler

Rotating spaghetti fork

Spray on wrapping paper

Waterproof books

Parking spot tracker

Do you ever go searching in a parking lot for a spot just to find out it's full?

Transparent toaster or knife that toasts the bread as you slice it

Could you have prevented that burnt toast if you could've seen it toasting?

Faucet that makes hot water glow red and cold water glow blue

Here's to no more burning your hands on hot water!

Booth that sprays you with sunscreen all over

If only we could, for once, actually get sunscreen on our whole bodies.

Rewindable microwave

Do you ever regret microwaving that food for a little longer than you should've?

A "sick straw"

When we're sick, the last thing we want to do is sit up and reach for the cup of water or sprite. So, how about a long straw that reaches us from the cup?

Machine to show a memory

Are you ever trying to tell a story and can't perfectly describe it? What if you could show it exactly how it happened?

Automatic online ordering printer

It's definitely a drag waiting for an online order to get to your doorstep. If only there was a printer that could automatically print whatever you order right as you press "submit order".

Ultimate laundry shoot

It's always a struggle lugging the full laundry baskets and putting them all in the washer, only to move them to the dryer a short amount of time later, just to lug them all back. But, it would be so helpful to throw our laundry down a shoot that leads directly into the washing machine-even better would be if when the machine was full, it automatically began.

Predictable shampoo and conditioner

We are all nervous when switching shampoo and conditioner because we don't know how it'll react with our hair or what our hair will look/feel like afterwards. If there was some sort of imaging or picture that showed us exactly how our hair would react, we wouldn't waste money for something we end up not liking.


While some of these things may come soon and others are far from being invented, they would truly make our daily tasks a little bit easier, making room for us to enjoy other things and not focus too much time on nit-picky tasks.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

Dumplin'

For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

Tumblr

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
