TOPIC:  Dollars…

Posted:  8/8/2018, 4:43 a.m. EDT


I haven't met anyone yet who doesn't like having a fistful of dollars.  The more you have the more you like it.  Dad says you have to come up with a brilliant idea to make a lot of cash.  This can be difficult, knowing that darn near everything has already been invented.  I heard about a million-dollar idea the other day about making a smoke detector that shuts off when you yell "I'm just cooking".  Another one that I am working on now is a disintegration ray gun than can be used while driving.  I also think invisible duct tape could easily help me put about a billion dollars into my bank account.  So many ideas, so little time...
