Listography - Inventions I wish were real



This weeks listography over at Kate takes 5 is all about Inventions that-would-make-my-life-easier

These are this inventions that I wish were real:




1.  The parallel universe viewer – how many times have you wondered what might have happened had you made different choices. Almost always we assume that life would have been better in some way and we would have been happier. The choices we make are probably for very good reasons so hopefully it would show you that you made the right one.

2. The household waste shrinker. I recycle as much as I possibly can but, having moved to once a fortnight collections and limits on the amount of rubbish the council will take I invariably find myself in the wheelie bin jumping up and down trying to compact it.

3. The automated mind reader – this would only switch on at critical times. I don’t want to be able to read peoples minds at will, but there are times when they are so damned obtuse I haven’t got a clue what the hell it is that they want from me.

4. A precious memory catcher – So you could transport yourself back to special moments. Moments that fade with memory and can’t be fully captured on film.  Maybe with the added option to share precious moments with people who, for whatever reason, should have been but couldnt be there at the time.

5. The kick up the backside prodder – I don’t really like this one but I think I need it.  I envision it being a little like a microchip inserted in the buttocks, it would deliver a sharp shock every time  I’m in danger of making a mistake that I’ve already made in the past, something that I really should have learned from at the time but didn’t.

Really like your take in this list especially the memory catcher. Also the parallel universe, you ate right there is probably a reason we made the decusion, but I bet we all have times where we need to be reminded of that.

I like the memory catcher too RP (I see it looking like a dream catcher with feathers and beads).

It's funny, first of all I started thinking of all the practical things I'd like that would make my life easier but they kind of got overtaken by the other things, things that really would change my life.

Love #4...I sometimes 'compare" memories with my girls, and it's funny how we all remember different stuff...and I could definitely use #5 ;)

Lee@mummyissuespart2 said...

LOL! Love your list, I especially like the parallel universe viewer. That would be mind blowing.

PS. Love you dumpapoo idea!

Kate said...

This is an excellent list. Esp the precious memory catcher. My memory is appalling so I will definitely be on the look out for that one. You better patent it quick!

Brilliant list. I should have read it before I did mine. I love the mind reader - I would LOVE to know what my missus is thinking when she stares very, very hard at me of an evening. It's either than I'm a total cock or that she's about to jump my bones. I know what my money would be on. Really funny read. Ta.

Gemma @ My Big Nutshell said...

ahhhh the parallel universe viewer. That would be so handy!

I'd like the mind reader to see if my husband chose to ignore me or if he really is that special...

JoJo said...

Lush list. just visiting from kate's listography. love your blog name! I'm your new follower. x

Sarah Mac said...

That's why we NEED the memory catcher Sandra, think how great it would be to see those precious moments from someone else's perspective.

Lee, mind blowing (and a little scary at the same time:)

Kate, you could be right! i shall start work on it asap.

RHD, haha, no comment ;)

Gemma, I'm torn on both of those! I want them yet I don't want them......

Hey Jojo, thanks for following, the name was inspired by a something someone said to me, it just seemed perfect.

Claire said...

I love the idea of a mind reader and the parallel universe viewer. These wou;d make my life much simpler!

Anne said...

I love the parallel universe idea. I often think back and wonder but then I think "life's too short" to wonder about that so I just live in the now.

Great list!

A totally inspired list and I love them all. That sounds like I am creeping but no, I think they are all excellent

Sarah Mac said...

Haha, doesn't sound at all like creeping to me Kate. I'm glad you like them as much as I do, wouldn't it be nice if they could be reality.
