I invented sex and also pioneered the male instinct to fall asleep after, you can all thank me later...I do take cash.

Actually the coolest invention I ever made was a Geo Tracker that I adapted to rail use, I used those little pump rail car wheels (you know the two person jitney you see in the movies) to keep the CG low and welded in some custom hub flanges to mate the steel wheels to the truck. A little engineering to make sure the suspension didn't bind the wheels when compressed and I took the steering box out and welded in a short balljoint and arm to keep the wheels straight.

In 4 high that little truck would snap your head back because of the small diameter wheels and fantastic traction, we once had it up to 75 mph on the rail before I chickened out. I think the inside wheels lifting on one corner made me soil my pants, I think she might have topped 90 mph if we had a long enough straight track.

Fun to drive thats for sure, you felt like you were inside an AFX slot car.

I invented the synaptic communications protocol. It took a while, but once I figured out theZn2+-binding and molecular determinants of tetramerization in voltage-gated K+ channels, I was well on my way!

PS: Some of you own me a lot of money for all the thinking you’ve done in this thread.

I have you all beat!

When I was 17, I invented a way to turn a 1959 T-bird into a vacuum cleaner that only sucked up money!

On the serious side, I built a custom jig for clamping and straightening warped acoustic guitar necks. In my early bachelor days, I modified all my mixing spoons to fit in my 3/8 cordless drill chuck because I was too cheap to buy a mixer!

Just some trivia on patents.

The guy who invented weed wackers, patented the idea. "Weedeater" infringed the patent and made millions marketing the product. The original inventor sued, but the court ruled that the idea was"obvious" and therefore the patent was invalid. The poor guy spent the entire $500,000 that he made from his invention, in legal costs, trying to protect his patent.

Alexander Graham Bell tried to get JP Morgan (president of AT&T) to buy into the telephone business. Morgan scoffed at the idea that the telephone would ever compete with his telegraph system. Later Thomas Edison (employed by AT&T) sued Bell, claiming that the telephone was his invention, and belonged to AT&T. Bell won the decision, and the judge was noted as saying, "Mr. Bell should be remembered not for his invention, but for his ability to write a flawless patent."
