Today we talked about how external turn signal indicators are the next big thing in car customization. The discussion took a slightly more explosive turn for the better.
Problem: living in a cold climate and the damn things stay frozen shut
Solution: explosive hinges, SLS door style
Problem: Vandals with scotch tape
Reader jeepfall then asked the logical follow-up question.
Explosives: is there anything they can't fix or improve?
Reader sammyjay took up the challenge.
For whatever reason, the first thing that came to my mind was household appliances. upon further thought the following items could absolutely use explosives:
toasters: my toaster has the lamest springs ever seen
fridge: the doors are vacuum sealed, i swear
freezer: the automatic ice maker seems to enjoy taunting me with 5 pound blocks of ice cubes
dishwasher: never have a little bit of water left standing in the bowls again!
dryer: express drying
hot water heater: instant hot water when you step in the shower every morning
toilets/sinks: clogs are a thing of the past with mini depth charges
air compressor: in a rush? need your tires pumped up quickly? BAM
What other things would be improved with explosives? We've had some fairly poor uses of explosives in the past few months, so I think they could use a re-imagination. I'm thinking explosive flowers would be a great way to spice up the staid world of gardening.
