The Critter Catcher. Don’t worry, the spider in the photo is safe because with this product, the object is to catch the bug….. but let it free! These people don’t know from stinkbugs or sowbugs.
I like to go in for the kill, flush that sucker down the toilet. Might I save a spider? Yes, maybe, it depends. But that doesn’t mean I’d buy the critter catcher.
That said, Mr. EOS and I have always said that all our invention ideas are never dumb enough, never finding a niche market that so many clever ideas do, inventions that you look at and say Gee, why didn’t I think of that??? My architect brother-in-law has created several very clever ideas that went nowhere, not because they weren’t good, but getting them marketed was the real challenge. Finding someone to buy them and sell them. There’s the rub. My sister, way back when inflation was a big deal, created an Inflatable Dollar pool float that sold quite well. The ones she didn’t sell went to rot in her basement. The odor of rotting Chinese plastic did nothing for a damp basement.
I came up with flavored ice cream jimmies, not just the colored ones, but flavored to match their color. Have you seen them in the market? Ha, I didn’t think so. Getting the flavor into such a small thing as a sprinkle proved undoable. Not to mention everyone told me the idea was stupid. Oh well. A gal can dream.
Maple syrup water? Vegan maple syrup water? Organic vegan maple syrup water?
But I’m alone I see in not buying such products. Look at the wall of juices at Stop & Shop.
I’ve tried a few of these. I take a glass or two then end up throwing the rest away. I guess I’m not young and hip enough to be their target audience.
Very cold day, so cold, damn, I turned the heat back on and have red fuzzy slippers on and a jacket. What a wuss I’ve become.
