The other day I was reading an article about young innovators and their creations. One was a website invented by two brothers in a former Soviet republic. Building on their grim experiences growing up in a repressive Soviet state, they designed their site as a place for people to anonymously exchange opinions.
I checked the site out. Their vision is working. Now unburdened from the shackles of being recognizable, one person freely posted this:
JENNY JONES, U R SO FAT!! YOU A TOTAL PIG!!
But some people did stick to more serious topics. Another anonymous poster, identifying himself only as “W”, wrote:
OKAY, THERE WERE NO WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.
I’m not a fan of these sites due to cyber-bullying. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think someone should be able to snap a wet towel against your butt 24/7.
But I’m not losing hope. In my online rambles I came across another young inventor. This guy developed something we actually need. It’s a brilliant fluid-delivery kit that allows you to repurpose your kitchen sink. Once the kit is installed, you turn the water knob and out comes a beer.
In Dude-World, this makes total sense. Every guy knows it’s easier to wash dishes in the toilet, where the power of rushing water also does the scrubbing work for you. Just stand there with a cold one and flush away until the plates and bowls are spotless.
The fraternity market for this must be huge. And this is the kind of thing that gives me hope for the future.
