    Seems like I am always wishing for something to be invented...today it is (I know, boring) a grout cleaner. Toothbrush size (even battery operated) scrubbers are hell on the back and take way too long. What about an electric(corded) slim brush that uses a back and forth motion, with a long handle like a vacuum?

    A better version of a keyboard.

    I feel ridiculous using voice recognition... There has just got to be a better way to get your data input without typing one letter at a time.

    Yes I am that impatient.

    Imagine thousands and millions of people sitting at a desk right now pushing one key at a time.

    click.  click.  click. tongue

    As I was eating my burrito last night, I realized that I can't successfully make a burrito that will stay together when I eat it. So today, I declare that someone needs to invent "Burrito Tape!" -An edible tape that you can use to tape your burrito together with. Genius!
