When you turn on the TV and tune into any of the â€˜newsâ€™ networks (I do use the term news loosely) all you hear is doom and gloom. The Middle East is like a huge Whack-a-Mole booth. Fix one problem, and two more rear their ugly heads. The US news is just as depressing, the economy is in the toilet, unemployment is over 8%, and the NFL refs are on strike! There is little to celebrate!
We are however a country full of entrepreneurs. Early this morning I caught an interview with Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs fame. Mike is one guy that you just canâ€™t keep down. Pretty much he has run out of scatological adventures for Dirty Jobs, and has embarked on a new quest. The worlds biggest â€˜pub crawlâ€™, he is going to drink his way across America, and Discovery TV will be covering his every move. That is what I class as some creative thinking.
Right after Mike Roweâ€™s interview I encountered another entrepreneur. My wife pointed out a comment that had been left on an article I had written some time ago. It was penned by Mack, I have no clue is that is his first or last name. What I do know though, Mack is go getter. In his comment he left a web site link Mackslidlifters.com.
I have a natural curiosity, and wondered what on earth was a Lid Lifter? The url seemed harmless enough, and my anti-virus protection was up to date, so I decided to jump right in!
Mack might be on to the next big one! It could eclipse Pet Rocks, Chia Pets, and maybe even The Clapper! Check out the video:
Now that is what I call creative! It installs in seconds, the only down side I can see is that you have to remember to â€˜uninstall itâ€™ before the garbage truck arrives!Â Maybe Mack should produce a more advanced system? A docking station? Think iPod, or iPhone. And just to piss Apple off, call it the iLid.
