First off I had this horrible vision of a speed dating event where you're given flashcards with discussion topics such as "Should we build a wall?" "Does socialism really work?" "Why is the divorce rate so high" "Are women really bad drivers?" Then I just picture people screaming at each other.

Proposed solution: Some kind of dating retreat that lasts a week, with planned activities that force people to sort of show more of themselves, and then free time to approach each other like "omg you said you like collecting bugs, me too!"
I was thinking the former actually. The point wouldn't be to get people to fight, but to start conversations that would cause incompatible people to fight. If they're incompatible have the guides cleanly break that up. If they're compatible, well they're compatible.

I think that people would be better off if they got the deal-breaker topics out of the way from the get go. It's not about antagonizing people, but rather finding irreconcilable differences immediately.

Plus, while some character and emotional discipline are obviously needed, topics that people fight over can sometimes be a useful heuristic of evaluating things that actually matter.

Saran-wrap. Its so difficult to cut. And, when you do finally cut it with that serrated edge, it often ends up bunching up, turning into a useless ball of irritation.

Years ago, I looked for 3rd-party dispensers of the stuff built for the home, but didn't find anything worth mentioning. This may have been solved since then. I did find industrial dispensers, but I don't want 2 feet of space taken up on my countertop for it.

Costco plastic wrap does come with a movable knife-thingy, but even that isn't all that convenient.
We use the stuff like the bakeries have - comes in a large box with a serrated metal edge. Can't find it online though, we buy from the food stand at the market :)

AirBNB for meeting/event spaces and equipment. It's nuts trying put find a place that 'fits' while keeping your people happy. e.g. My Toastmasters district puts on 1 conference, a hall of fame/awards event, and 12 leadership trainings per year in various locations around a two state area. They always seem to end up at the same 3 or 4 places and barely have the funds for them as they run the gamut of cost. From free at a church to 3500 for a facility at a college. I've tried to find alternate venues, but have not cracked that nut, yet.

Here's one I thought about with my barber the other day:

Barbers are in a lot of pain... Their line of work requires them to be standing and hunched over for long periods of time. There's definitely long-term back-related injuries that will surface from this kind of work.

How can you address this pain? I thought about a silly idea, but I'd love to hear somebody else tackle this issue in a more creative way.

My dumbass solution:
What about a barber's chair that attaches onto any/most existing barber chairs? It attaches at the bottom, and it can freely swivel around the other chair. You've now got a barber that can be orbiting the client's chair, so they can get all the angles they want to cut, but they don't have to be standing all day to do it.​

Wouldn't that be just a chamber echo dating then? Just finding who you don't disagree with basically so you don't have to have anyone challenge your thoughts?

Honestly I think it's the type of thing you discover you can't really do while sitting. Like some forms of painting or drawing, you realize you can see the whole thing better if you are standing or if the thing is vertical in front of you etc (hence drawing boards)

Do comfort mats and maybe posture supports not help? It makes me think of my dad too, he's a surgeon and always has back pain because they are all hunching for hours over people's guts.

I do think the solution goes about changing the environment because you can't change the way the spine likes to be. Maybe just one barber chair but it should go much, much higher. The position should be much more customizable.

Another solution: Yoga for barbers: A quick workout video they can do to stretch it out at the end of each day. :D ta-dah

Omg why are we even still using saran-wrap in the first place. What does it have that can't be replaced by Tupperware or foil or something else plus so wasteful/not eco friendly. Foil also but at least foil doesn't totally crunch on you because of static.

I'd see if I can find a new material that can be reused, maybe? A material we use for other things but applied as Saran Wrap it works just as well?

That kinda goes in hand with my future backyard, which I might rent with tables and chairs for little backyard weddings for smart people that don't wanna waste money. Or just simpler people like me (?

I mean I think you made your own solution though, an app where people can post their available places, price per night, and equipment all in one place to at least save you all the Googling. It could be as simple as a directory website where you charge vendors monthly, upsell "featured" posts to show on top, etc.

the reason I use it instead of tupperware or what not is for when I need to wrap something that won't fit in my containers, or if my containers are dirty, or whatever.

Quite a few people (myself included) aren't super concerned about the environment, so they'll continue using plastic wrap until something better comes along. (to be sure, I agree that we should protect the environment, reduce carbon emissions, nor dump chemicals into the ground/river/ocean, etc.)

Something that would work well, but would require a materials scientist to produce:

a pre-cut piece of plastic that would stay in place once bent, but that would flatten out maybe with hot water? Kind of like those silicone oven mats you use in baking sheets, but stiffer.

My apartment doesn't have a dishwasher. I don't mind doing dishes, but it is a time sink and I'd pay to get those minutes back. Portable dishwasher?
Maybe this could go in the dirty job thread. Create a cleaning biz or add dish service to an existing maid service. OR...create a daily/every other day basic dish swap out service. The dishes and silver wear are contained in leak proof containers. When you're done you put them outside. Some time during the day, a driver comes around and swaps the dirty dishes with clean dishes. The dishes are cleaned and repacked. Set it up as a subscription service. You can even add special requests for additional dishes when you're expecting company or fancy table settings when trying to impress that date.

Either this ends up in the landfill or we exercise our brains some.

Step 1- Complain about something you deal with IRL, any pain point, serious or silly. First thing that comes to mind.
Step 2- Other people quote the problem and think of a product/solution they can sell to the other person.

Rule#1: If it works it ain't stupid! The point is to think outside the box. People are allowed to take someone's answer and improve it.
Rule#2: DBAB (Don't be a dick)


I start.

Problem: Only child. Miles away from mom. She can't do basic things on the computer like downloading her phone photos, because "OmG Idk HoW tO dO IT, i'M gOnNa BReAK soMetHiNG ". Walking her through it on a call is a torture and she prefers to wait one year or more until I visit for me to do it for her instead of learning (I've written the steps down and she still won't do it). She keeps running out of space and deleting things while she waits for me to visit.

I'm legit willing to pay $$ for someone to solve this nuisance for me.
Make her go to a GOOD public library. That means there will be a bank of computers inside somewhere, usually near the printers and scanners and a circulation desk.
She can ask for and receive help, even a bit of informal tutoring, from the awesome librarians who are the elderly patrons' guaridian angels of desktop computer assistance. Mom should bring a legal pad with her and take some notes.
The Answer.
(Bam)

I need an uber for day laborers. Painting, moving stuff around, etc.

Your problem may be solved the same way.
Oh for Heaven's sake.
Why don't you have an effin' government grant already, @broswoodwork ? Geez, your business seem so appropriate for workforce funding from the Department of Labor or education funding. M*nga, seriously. I once found, applied for, and won a $21 million federal grant for this stuff. I can help you. Oh but wait, you're not ready. Nevermind.
Bad answer.
Walk into an SBA. Get a loan or grant and buy a van. Wait, nevermind, you're not ready.
Here's the answer.
Get an SBA loan or a bloody grant. Buy a van and hire a driver and test the concept of specialized courrier and driver services for workers and equipment and stuff. Heck, you could even fetch Home Depot shoppers who rent the legit-sized floor sander for a day. When it's profitable, start a franchise of vans with convertible space and call them "Worker B's." B for bus. Ha. Ha. Then go on Shark Tank...

BAM, right?

There's you're answer.
Seriously, gentle-hearted, benevolently named @WillHurtDontCare, here's what you do, since you didn't listen to your Mama when she gave you a clue:
Get ammonia. Yep. Get a sink drain that works. Get a dish brush and household gloves.
When you leave for work or go to bed, you put those nasty, nasty dishes in a deep sink with lots of hot water. Halfway full, squirt in dishwashing soap and a few ounces of ammonia. Turn off the water and leave. It doesn't smell that great but doesn't hurt the nostrils.
Within half an hour those dishes will be ready for the very fastest, lightest swish and rinse.
It will take minutes or seconds, not demi-hours.
I know this to be 100% true, having been raised hard.

Go to the store and buy Reynold's Wrap and return home.
Remove the aluminium wrap from the box and replace it with your plastic wrap.
The serrated edge of the Reynold's Wrap box is perfect for plastic.

Problem: Renting/buying apartments.
I`m so sick of timewasting brokers.
Most of them upload fake ads CONSTANTLY.
Alot of them waste your time LYING about the apartment just to get you there even though you`ve specified the exact things which you dont want the apartment to have.
Some of them respect you but usually dont offer you anything for months.
And there are a few unicorns which flat out refuse to work with you because you are not serious enough for them.

Dont get me started on the cleanliness of apartments...

Solutions, pleeease
Over ninety percent of real estate brokers and property managers lie.
I think it's in the Guinness Book of World Records: Career Profession with the Highest Percentage of Liars.
You need to spend a weekend or less getting a real estate sales license and becoming your own apartment agent and broker.
Or, more easily. you need to stop being thrown out of your apartment so often @alexkuzmov . I mean, five times a year is getting ridiculous.

What is wrong with meeting at a church function room? Give them fifty bucks a month for heat. Oh wait, because it's at church.
Take a lool at the local restaurants where you live. Several have function rooms. If you need to meet regularly, ask the owner nicely if it would be OK to use the space for something like $30 or $20. Yes, that low. They will often say go right ahead, don't even worry about the fee.

BAM.

Really, I have done this for meeting groups FIVE TIMES.

By the way, @reedracer , that other pic for your alias was great because its sheer inscutability. Could you restore it so I can keep wondering what the heck it's about? Thank you.

Ewwwwww!
That's like scenery furniture for Mad Max!
What about the hair getting all over the little chair, between the seat and the arm rest, unless of course the barber has to wear an apron too? This is so confusing.

What about this, a swing the barber can sit on which is connected to the ceiling on a circular track!
Wait, what about swings on tracks for home and office? For shopping?
Can you imagine how wide your behind would get after a year of riding that?

I've thought of renting out my hellstrip for weddings and advertising on AirBnB under "Experiences." I might just put a little trellis arch out there right on the hardpan with the sign, "Weddings" and a phone number.

My furnace service guy caused an electrical short in the wiring inside the walls somewhere between the furnace and the emergency switch and I still paid him $276.52. My furnace doesn't turn on now.

Electricians around here are booked until the end of November.

I have household repair skills and probably a death wish.

Help me to understand where I went wrong...
I'm just being silly about me not being qualified (yet..?) to faithfully and profitably employ that much money, and if I ever do get to that level, I won't need a grant; people will be almost forcing me to take their money from them. :)

New problem:

PET HAIR SHEDDING

Lint roller you say? HA this crap floats in the air space. The minute you’re done you have hair on your clothes again.
Vacuum cleaner? Some hairs get stuck between other fabrics’ fibers. I have a hand vacuum with a little “rubber end that sort of moves the stuff around” and it’s still not perfect
Brushing gloves? Meh they still shed

Bonus: did I mention I shed hair too?
