I deem this useful.

Gadget, Journal

Happy Birthday, Mrs. Royuk! You’re the middle to our birthday Oreo!

This is probably already out in the world somewhere, but since I thought of it by myself, I have decided that I have invented it. Here’s the moneymaker idea: Putting a magnet on something to make it stick to the refrigerator. I know! This is going to make me rich! Fully-funded midlife crisis, here I come.

There are other things here, but notice the scissors.

Ok, it’s a magnet on a pair of scissors. But for people like me who always just set the scissors down and then pile junk on top of them, I truly think this could be revolutionary. All you need is:
* one of the super-powerful magnets that can be had for cheap at Harbor Freight,
* one pair of scissors, which can be purchased in bulk for cheap at Harbor Freight,
* one refrigerator, harvested at Sears.

I trust you can figure out the rest.

It is slightly taller than that bump. Good thing.

But I want my royalties.

    Darn, my fridge is wooden on the exterior. Does Harbor Freight have magnets so strong that they could hold the scissors through the wood?

    You should stick food to your refrigerator. Need eggs that are room temperature? Stick them to the refrigerator with a magnet! Need a cheese slice in a hurry? Stick it to the refrigerator!

    You can’t get Billy Mays to sell your amazing idea, but maybe you can get that guy with the British accent.

    That is genuis Lauren! Now are these the “good” scissors hanging up….or the secondary pair? And I’m going to have to look for some of those super magnets here in MD. The ones on my frig can’t even hold up 2 pieces of paper.

    That is a genious idea -- I have to admit, I laughed pretty hard when you explained your idea. The only thing left before marketing is testing your idea; I’m sure the kitties will gladly help you test to see if the scissors stay on the frige -- my cat tests the fridge magnets ability quite often -- I have wimpy magnets that lose every time.
