(I did one of these earlier but deleted it by accident. )

Has anyone here invented anything?

A recipe; a philosophy, theory or mantra; a joke; a tool... You get it. I'm talking about inventions.

I maintain that The Book Of General Ignorance was my idea.

I've watched QI since the start of series one and have always loved it, but I could never remember the stuff it said on it the next day, so I couldn't show off my new knowledge.

So I emailed the BBC saying "Why not make an encyclopaedia of all the things we learn?". And now here we are, abundant in The Book Of General Ignorance! (A reply would have been nice though.)

What are your inventions?

hahaha I replied the to the last one and it then disappeared!

I dont know if I would class it as inventing but I cook alot and I have to make sure the food is friendly for my dad to eat as he cant eat wheat flour... so I have developed my own recipes... do they count?

The Greatest Invention of the Last Two Centuries is THE FLUSHING TOILET!!!!!!!
(Although yes I know- book of general ignorance readers that it wasn't invented in the last two centuries by crapper... but if i said it was then I wouldn't have to defend it against the light bulb).
In fact- should I post my Toilet Speech here?

I invented an internet cartoon called Thirteen Simpsons.

Yes, I know, The Simpsons isn't mine... and neither are Thirteen Senses, but hey... the concept was mine!

A whhelbarrow that can be put flat on a pallet that is dropped by parachute as food-aid over places like Bosnia in the 1990's so people didn't have to make repeated trips up a mountain to get the food-aid. :'(

Yeah, this can be what other people have invented but what you've improved! Or maybe if you haven't had the facilites or time to improve it yourself, what you'd like to see done

I'd like somebody to make a see-through toaster. As Eddie Izzard put it, the time dial on the toaster "lies to you". I want to see exactly how brown my toast is!

ChrisB - that's so thoughtful of you

All I've invented are words to cover up the meanings of other words so teachers/other people don't know what we're talking about

Also one more post and I'll have 300
