For the first Kick Ass Invention of the Day, I would like to honor an amazing device that works quietly and consistantly in the background. This device has made our lives considerably easier with little respect:

Kick Ass Invention of the Day 4/7/05
The Ice Maker


Always there with ice for your drinks, and practically no maintenece needed. What's more, this invention 'fuels' itself with a permanent connection to a water source. The ice maker is appreciated by even the laziest people. Off the top of my head I can think of no invention that provides so much, while requiring less human interaction. When you want to make your drinks cold, grab some ice... it's always there!

I agree with you DJ. The ice maker is definitely a great invention. Here in Muncie I have to get ice the old fashion way using fucking ice trays. In Warsaw I have an ice maker. Going from one to the other sucks big time.

Oddly enough, I know exactly where you are coming from, except I went the exact opposite way. I used to have to pour water into fucking little ass trays and then stash them in the freezer for a few hours. It sucked. Ice was not a luxury I enjoyed. However recently I switched to an Ice making refigerator and it rocks. Whenever I want crushed ice I just push a button and shit comes out of the machine. Damn, I love modern technology.

Smoke a cigarette and lie some more -- These conversations kill.

Kick Ass Invention of the Day 4/9/05

Today we will celebrate yet another invention that recieves little credit, until we experience life without it. If the test of a good invention is the level of annoyance we endure when we no longer have it, then this is the invention of all inventions.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Remote Control
Ranging from the basic:


To the complex:


Remote controls have made our lives easier, first with merely the ability to change the chanel and volume on a television. Now remote controls can manipulate every function of an electronic device (including functions that cannot be performed without the remote control), and are becomming more popular in mobile audio. Indeed, once you have a remote control for your car stereo, as lazy as it seems, you do not want to go back to having to manipulate the controls on the faceplate.

The remote control is an amazing device which has made our lives considerably better.

I disagree completely. I've found remote controls to be useless within the vehicle. I tried for about a week to use only the remote for my previous head unit...but it became more of a pain in the ass than anything.

Outside of that, I can't argue at all with the remote's usefullness in all of the other mentioned aspects.

Yeah I hate the remote for mine. I don't really see the point if all I have to do is move my hand 2 feet to use the controls on the faceplate.

For me the remote is crucial, so I dont have to lean forward while driving, but the most important aspect is being able to control the stereo at all times without looking at the faceplate so you can pay attention to the road. You have all the controls you need within a thumbs reach, and you know exactly where they are.

So you can memorize the placement of the buttons on a remote, but not of the same buttons on the faceplate?

Well on the remote, your thumb is always there, you don't have to look at it. With the faceplate, you have to reach for it; and out of habit will look at it. The remote is just easier.

Another invention that wouldn't seem like a big deal, but provides an extraordinary level of convenience:

The Keyless Entry



Originally just for locking and unlocking doors from a distance, the keyless entry system can now control alarms, tailgates, remote startup, and a panic button.

Having a keyless entry system rather than a standard key offers several advantages:

1) They eliminate the risk of scratching paint on your vehicle near the lock.

2) Your locks will always be unlocked upon ariving at your vehicle, this is especially important when you have passengers who are anxious to get in the vehicle (which under the traditional system could cause a 'balk' where the passenger attempts to open the door at the same time as the driver unlocks the door - keeping the door locked and causing a minor pain the in the ass).

3) Access to your tailgate (or rear door) without having to unlock the vehicle.

4) If you have an alarm (which comes with many aftermarket keyless entry systems), your insurance will be lower.

5) Remote start (which may come with aftermarket keyless entry systems) ensures your vehicle/engine will be warm before driving.

6) Having a keyless entry system guarentees the presense of power locks, which are numerous in benefits to traditional locks.

I nominate as the invention of the day:

[img]http://rds.yahoo.com/S=96062883/K=the+guillotine/v=2/SID=e/l=IVI/SIG=12ai4mag3/EXP=1115058184/*-http%3A//www.asu.edu/clas/history/courses/guillotine.jpg[/img]
The Guillotine

Although the guillotine's fame dates from its extensive use during the Reign of Terror of the French Revolution, the first guillotine-like instrument was used as early as 1307. It may have been used earlier but the first solid evidence is its use in Ireland in 1307. It was not used much until it became the official instrument of execution for the French revolution. It was named for Dr. Louis Guillotin, who proposed that such a machine be used for official executions. It was actually constructed by others, though his name was forever associated with the machine.

It was adopted because it was an egalitarian and humanitarian form of capital punishment. Previously the form of execution depended in part on a person's class. A noble might merit a quick blow from the headsman's axe (the custom was to offer a tip to the executioner to ensure a swift death), but if you were a commoner, you might suffer the torture of a drawing and quartering or some equally painful death.

The official executioner of the French Revolution, Charles-Louis Sanson, said on April 25, 1792:

Today the machine invented for the purpose of decapitating criminals sentenced to death will be put to work for the first time. Relative to the methods of execution practised heretofore, this machine has several advantages. It is less repugnant: no man's hands will be tainted with the blood of his fellow being, and the worst of the ordeal for the condemned man will be his own fear of death, a fear more painful to him than the stroke which deprives him of life.

Some have speculated that these very virtues made it easier and more efficient to use it as an instrument to kill in large numbers. Would Maximilien Robespierre and his followers have been so quick to remove those citizens who failed to measure up in order to create his perfect "republic of virtue" if it were not so efficient and humane? It certainly would have been more difficult.

In spite of its efficiency, an execution by guillotine was still a sickening spectacle. When the head was severed, blood poured from the body as the heart continued to pump. When it was used frequently (as it was during the revolution), the stench from the place of execution was horrible. There is also some evidence to suggest that the head retained some life for a moment after the head was severed and so the death might not be as quick as has been supposed.

Although the guillotine is most closely associated with the French, the Nazis guillotined more people than were killed during the French Revolution. Hitler considered it a demeaning form of punishment and used it for political executions. 20,000 had a date with Madame la Guillotine in 1942 and 1943.

The last use of the guillotine was in 1977. Capital punishment has been abolished in France.

I also have to admit I did a google search to find the original this morning, but got lazy after about 5 minutes and gave up.
