A good plot for just about any story is time travel. What if you could send somebody back in time to give you a message, and the future that you played a big part in creating is not the future you imagined. What would you do if you got a message like that, and you were working on an invention?
I would patent the invention fast and hide it. Wouldnt you do that even if it meant you wouldnt get rich? You wouldnt gain anything for your invention, but grief from having to hide it. Once youve patent the invention, its out there for almost anyone to see and offer to buy. You wouldnt sell it, so someone invents something like your invention, but not. They get rich and ruin the world them self.
What would you do if you got a message that you could stop the future from becoming what it already was? My thoughts on the time line is that there are many lines to the future, one is created for every decision we make.
If you have an invention than make sure, you are willing to lose twenty thousand dollars before you think of patenting the idea. I have an invention, I thought of in high school. I paid for a patent and now its Patent Pending. I didnt hope to make millions, I was more realistic, one million will be fine. I doubt Ill make that, but Im hoping to sell the Patent for a quarter of a million.
How I came up with the invention:
At the young age of twelve, I suffered a head trauma after being hit by a car. After months at CHOP, I had a tutor coming to my house to finish the school year. The next school year I was put into the local high schools physically handicapped class. Plymouth White Marsh High School was a block or two from my house and I was a mature thirteen year old.
One day in class a student in a wheelchair was erasing the chock board and could not reach to the top. He reached and reached until he was out of the chair and fell back. The teacher saw this and told him to stay in his seat and that she would erase what he could not reach.
I saw his disappointment, so I walked to the board and took an old eraser and a pointer stick, and I stuck the stick in to the back of the eraser. The teacher saw the student with a smile erasing the top of the chock board. She asked me, Did you do this?
I answered with a short, Yeah. I was not sure if she would be made about poking a hole through the eraser.
With a smile the teacher said, What an idea, you should patent it.
I thought nothing of it and went on with my day.
I inherited some money and invested half of it unwisely. I thought long and hard about how to invest the other half. To bad I dont have an invention to invest in….
I was remembering the depressing years of high school, and I remembered the teacher telling me to patent an idea that I had. I looked into getting a patent and decided to go for it.
The Eraser Holder that would help people that cant reach the top off the board that they reached with an pointer stick. Every school will use this for students with asthma can stand an extra arms reach from the chock board. Short students and teachers wont need to rely on the tall student to erase the chock bored.
