Free Idea #6
You know you want it: Dental Floss "End-of-Roll" Indicator.

This next idea excites me for a number of reasons. First, because it’s a very good idea. Possibly our best. It might not make me a million dollars, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it makes someone a bunch of money. Someone duty bound to send me a taste, of course. Second, it excites me because it’s our first unsolicited contribution. As I’ve said before, if you’ve got an idea you’re lazy to develop send it along. I’m too lazy to want to think of all our ideas, so I could use the help.

So I’m over at my sister’s house for dinner on Friday. Being absolutely untrue to our heritage, she was making cabbage rolls and pierogies. Here’s a bonus idea for you: make these cabbage rolls like she did. It’s worth spending one of your free passes through the New York Times paywall to get. Use pierogies from the Prague Deli. This is a very good meal. She used beef instead of lamb, but I’m not going to hold that against her.

At any rate, (Second bonus idea that I’ve been trying for years to get rolling: using “AAR” as an abbreviation for ‘at any rate’) halfway through rolling the rolls, she says, “I’ve got a great idea for your blog: dental floss that tells you when it’s about to run out by changing colour.”

“Like the tape on a cash register does?”

“Exactly. When I travel I take little travel packs of floss with me and I’m always getting screwed when the last piece is like four inches. So have the last foot be a different colour so you could be prepared.”

Genius. It must run in the family.

[UPDATE: My sister: intellectual property thief. Thanks, sis!]
