Have you ever invented anything?

My only invention was the California Price Per Pound Law tabs on super market shelves so people could compare prices. It took me three years to make it permanent despite Governor Reagan's attempts to kill it.

Did you ever invent anything?

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
dunno if invent is the right word...

I mated two existing products in a new and unique way to fill a void in the performance transmission industry. they sold like hotcakes...

when I went to the manufacturer of one of the pieces used, to better my pricing structure, they flat turned me down and told me to continue buying from the middle man I had been using.

3 months later, their biggest client began marketing my gadget.

oh well.

I still won't buy anything with a B or an M on it...

I invented the internal combustion fart motor. As one drives one's car, farting, the gas is taken by a suction line inside the engine, where it is utilized to propel the car. I am having trouble building a prototype.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
Not me, but my father and my coworkers all hold patents. Dad holds over 40, might be over 50 by now. All of these are electrical engineering type things.

I originated my city's Neighborhood Identification Sign program. We now have round neighborhood signs mounted on the backs of stop signs around the perimeters of many neighborhoods.

*technically it's not an "invention" as much as an innovation.
