  1. Well, you have to remember that most of the population is lazy or stupid. At least in America (trust me I know).

  2. Hey, it only seems to you that “most of the population is lazy or stupid” when in fact, only half of the population is really lazy or stupid, and that will be presumed here, on your words, to be the half you hang out with!

    Remember, half of the population is ‘below average in IQ’! Perhaps you should choose yoru friends more carefully.

    The half I hang out with, and encounter in seminars on Physics, Astronomy, the Sciences, and the Arts, all seem to be above reproach as to mental acuity, with quick witted senses, and a heightened repartee responsiveness!

    Life is good, for me! Yours probably sucks. But, you can change that. Just don’t come over here trying to horn in on my universities and museums on the East Coast.

  3. well, i don’t work in an office yet, so the coffee mug thing is not an issue (yet eheh) – however, i must say i am quite impressed with the banana case invention. question though… is there a one-size fits all case? or is it kinda twisty to fit those irregular curves?

  4. love those inventions!

    as for that naysayer, if it wasn’t for someone being ‘lazy or stupid’, we probably wouldn’t have the wheel.

    keep ’em coming!

  5. SMART + Lazy = best inventions ever πŸ˜›

    I LOVE these inventions, and if I would see the transparant toaster in the shop I even would consider bying it…

  6. Unfortunately, those that think half the population is below average, are probably below average. Half the population is below the median, but above and below average can have any ratio. Example: The average number of legs on humans is smaller than two. In that case, almost all of the population is above average.

  7. I love th banana case. If I’m not careful, something cold may be against my bananna in my cooler, and depending on how cold and damp…yeachh…a big ‘ole brown spot on my Chiquita.

  8. hey gaurav, for those products that i found, i’ve put up the links. unfortunately, some are only design concepts, like the glass toaster (which is rather cool, but then, i’m always rushing off for classes or waking up late so toast, or breakfast for that matter nearly always doesn’t happen πŸ˜› )

  9. It seems as these products are for lazy and stupid people. But we will not have luxuries we are suing today, if our fore-fathers thought the same way. Si Innovative thinking always take the world forward.

  10. Hey man. Cool inventions. Im a stumbler and thought the scissors, lock cup and the toilet seat lifter were genius. Ive actually seen ppl with the banana holder case thingy and i think its lame coz its a permanent shape so if you have an irregular banana it wont fit properly

  11. I really like the cup and cookies, the clear toaster (looks cool), and the locking cup.

    The toaster just looks so cool.

  12. hey WeirdoWaldo,
    For such a genius, you’ve really mustered a fallacious argument. Sure, half of the population has an IQ below 100, but 90% have a “normal” IQ or below, and only 10% are actually below one standard deviation. Also, this doesn’t account for or relate to those who are lazy, which seem to be the elite, pampered, and educated upper-class like yourself. You know, the East-Coast private school brats like you, using Mommy and Daddy’s money to play leisure sports and do expensive illicit drugs all day — sounds pretty lazy to me.

    I’m not normally the posting type, but your monumentally rude comment begged me to point out that you’re clearly not as smart as you think you are, and certainly not in the social realm. Maybe some of your seminars and universities can help you learn not to be such an asshole. In fact, you might consider finding something more productive to do with your alleged brilliance than bragging about your money and education while degrading the less fortunate. I won’t even get into what a disgrace you are to your socioeconomic standing…

    I think I speak for everyone when I say that I care way more about a banana guard than your awesome life and all of the obvious self-esteem issues its given you. Shut up.

  13. Hey, Some of this stuff is really cool! I couldn’t help but laugh at the laser pointer scissors and the zaky infant pillows. weird man.

  14. WeirdoWaldo

    Is an ass! Although I am glad his life is going so well, I find it remarkable that some one so educated would degrade the less fortunate.
    Perhaps if he had do support his self, life would be different.

  15. I’d like a pair of those scissors! I wouldn’t mind one of those toasters too! The “thing” – for baby – is weird but intriguing!

    Good one Alvin,
    SJ xx

  16. I loved this site and most of the inventions would sell (I believe). They are clool looking and functional for the lazy – myself included.

  17. Absolutely excellent – one of the few original sites I have seen!

    Love the mugs, the toaster and even the day clock – having retired early having made my money and not working to routine I often lose track of the day πŸ™‚

    You should flog this stuff – you’ll get rich!

  18. My Grandma got one of those giant remotes for Christmas because she can’t read the buttons on the regular remotes. Once she gets the hang of it I think she’ll love it!

  19. Alvin, I’m gutted, what can I say.

    I’ve rarely seen something on here that made me say, “I WANT that!”, but the glass toaster did it for me. And then I find it’s only a concept.

    Gutted. Truly gutted πŸ˜‰

  20. Helsinki, same here, i thought it looked like the perfect kitchen accessory, then realised it’s not available :T

  21. Hej!
    I loved ALL the stuff!
    What amazes me is that the “Banana guard” is selling big time here in Sweden – in expensive design stores! (I bought 2 for my kids like 2 years ago for about 10 USD each!!!!)
    And I would definately buy the giant remote!!! (But it would still have to be enhanced with some sort of incorporated beep/sound devise/sensor, like it beeps if you clap your hands or whistle… so you actually find it from where ever your kids have hidden it from you… my mom had a keyring like that many, many, many years ago! Let me tell you – I wish most of my stuff had that!!!)

  22. Hej Waldo…

    I’m sorry but it´s just that you don´t sound so good! Were you high? drunk? having a hangover?
    For being such a previleged and high inteligence person you can’t even spell and it really sounds like you had to look up those difficult words in the dictionary. I’m happy for you that you can “choose yoru friends” though…!

    Why even bother with us, the “mediocre” people? Why come down to our level? Why did you have to interfere? Why did you have to tell us? We weren’t even aware of our levels of intelligence and IQ’s and all that… Now what are we supposed to do? Where do we go from here to where you are? Is there a bus? I want what you have, achieve your hights of intelligence… (I’m being sarcastic, of course!)

    Must have had a pretty boring hour, hum?

    I trully hope your live is good, why other wise would you have to bring that up? Here, to this totaly creative blogg, of all places?….

    I just hope you were just having a bad hair day…. I just hope, for the sake of those who have to put up with you every day that you don’t sound like this in real life!
    I really hope your life is really good! For your and everyone’s around you sake.

    Have a good life! (and remember – money can’t buy you that!)

    PS: go eat some chocolate!

  23. I want like half the things on here. Seriously, traspearent toaster? Tea-time penguin? They sound like sex positions, but they’re really good ideas! I guess that’s redundant, but seriously, I want them!, oh and a day clock. Anyone who thinks my comments are good, or stupid, or has any thoughts owes me one of these items.

  24. Hi Alvin!
    No, I actually never used them much…. But they are very, very popular over here – as popular as they are (still) expensive – and if you are around parents with young children you’re always bound to see a few coming out of their bags.

  25. why has it taken so long for someone to invent a toilet seat lifter. One less thing for woman to complain about. I bet it was a man who solved this problem.

  26. I’m a high school student, and i for one, most definitely don’t consider myself a lazy or stupid person and i know my IQ is above the national average (which isn’t that hard to accomplish, sadly). However, i find these inventions to be ABSOLUTELY FITTING for the evolving, typical American society. I happen to be writing an essay on how America seems to have lost it’s values such as family, education, practicality (which none of these inventions promote, BY THE WAY) and humility (as opposed to consumerism and materialism, for example) and these inventions prove my point like no other.


  27. By the way, Sal, you think these gadgets are nice? Well, i wish people would spend more time on curing cancer, for one, than wasting their time on a Toilet Seat Lifter HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  28. Just reading all of your comments (the majority of people on this list), it makes me sick to think that you all are so amazed at the dumbest things. I give props to the see-through toaster, but that’s about it. Honestly though, AMERICANS ARE LIKE MONKEYS!

  29. yes there is you acting like younowevery single leb it aint cool trust me you ********

  30. yeah they dont now you that are a bicth and stop calling mo mohmood you sound like a donkey hahahahahahaha

  31. belal cant fucking stand u maaan i know him and he hates u biiiiiiitch
    and atleast i dont goout with ppl like you do

  32. Alvin:

    Love the see thru toaster & the Wheel_bench!
    All are cool but those 2 are the best of the lot!

    Too bad you don’t have anti-spam or anti-retard control here to control the idjut posters.

    Some of you seem to like to bash someone all to **** and back simply because he has a hobby.
    He could be sitting there grumbling about how society has gone downhill and so on but he plugs on creating neat things for us to look at. πŸ™‚

    I can nearly bet those of you who do complain/bash people sit on the couch all day doing nothing but looking for stuff to complain about simply because you are not happy with yourself.
    If you’re all really nice I’ll think about providing the cheese with your whine!



  33. This is what I term as ingenuity, I love the anti-theft cup , I’ve had all 3 of my mugs nicked. So that will come in handy. Where can I purchase this in the UK?

  34. Hahahahah! The banana holser is interesting, but there are so many different sized ones at the supermarkets I frequent that I wonder if half of them will fit the box. Interesting concept though.

    The see-through toaster is definitely my favourite. It is just the coolest gadget out. Something for the seriously modern kitchen.
