The question is "If you could invent one useful thing for humankind, what would it be?"

I need ideas since I feel like shat. I'll be tweaking them anyway, but PLEASE HELP. I can't think right now.

Erm, do something like, a CO2 catching device, or a car that runs on CO2, or something environmentally friendly, things always get better marks if they're topical.

OR, do something controversial, or extremely offensive, like a machine that makes all black people white, or vise versa.

Invent something to put in your head that gives it another use besides holding your hair in place. Think for yourself and maybe you'll actually get an idea that you're passionate about.

Go as a tampon
White shirt, white hat, white trousers (cheap ones) and cover the bottom half in fake blood, also have to write 'Tampax' on the shirt, so people know what you are and can then be disgusted.

Do they make remote controls for your t.v. with a beeper? They need to make one! I hate digging around the house looking for a t.v. remote. If it had a beeper I wouldn't have to look. I'd just listen.


EDIT: but then I'd have to have another remote to activate the beeper. That means they need to have a beeper on the remote I activate the beeping t.v. remote.

A Tree Bark Organizer. A little box you put on a tree that you move downwards with your hand. And it makes all the tree bark nice and straight and gets rid of any bumps or jagged edges. Either that, or bullets in the shape of Santa. You can now literally shoot joy from a gun.


Edit: Guy above me, put a button on the T.V that activates the beeping?

Well, personally (having just applied to colleges a month ago) I would think about what you want to major in. Try to mention that you plan to major in (insert major here) in the most subtle manner possible. Then try to mention how you will use the skills and knowledge you'd gain to invent something useful in your field.

Don't use the typical crap that every kid says they'd like to invent (new energy source, etc.) Try to be somewhat realistic and come from an angle that the college admissions people won't expect. They may have to read a hundred essays a day about finding a new energy source, or converting ocean water to drinkable water. Find something that in 10 or 20 years you may actually have a shot at inventing.

What a horribly elementary question... You're in college you say? It sounds like 3rd grade question....or one of those questions you ask in beauty pagents...

I was writing things like that when I was in primary school. This is the second horrific 'college' essay question I've seen in the Pit in the last week, I hope it isn't indicative of the quality of American universities!

What paper is it for?

Edit: If it's a college entry question then the guy before me has got some pretty good advice.

A device that would mix the pigment of everyone's skin, thereby averaging everyone out to a beige sort of color, and eliminating visible minorities, except for those that wear clothing that indicates their minority-ness.

I'm not retarded... I definitely could think of ideas, but thinking of one that could be elaborated on in a one page-ish essay and have multiple effects beyond the most rudimentary apparent ones was difficult.

I ended up going with a device that can rapidly recycle noxious unbreathable gases into oxygen. I then explained how we could do extended research about zero-gravity effects on life, how we could colonize the ocean floor and live their indefinitely, how we could continue using fossil fuels and clean up our atmosphere at the same time, how we could colonize other planets and solve territorial disputes and avert war...

I integrated it quite well into the world. I almost did a CO2 recycling machine, but then I realized that that's called a 'plant.'

Either way I wrote the essay and submitted it, and now it's in Ja's hands.

Essay is an argument, so would you be arguing why your invention would be the best thing to make?
