    A Chinese president, just to really fuck with people.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    Yeah, when I was younger I had the simple idea of having clothes with little pockets for ice/heat packs. I reckon with the technology of today they could probably add tiny thermal heating tubes or something in the thread of some thickish clothing to keep you warm, and it would be operated by a little battery you can put on your belt or in a pocket or something.

    The time travelling toothpick. Each tooth corresponds with a number of years, you just put it there and go back in time. Awesome!

    Not an ENTP and I still have crazy ideas on a daily basis...with no one to share them with...*sniff*

    I want to open a school so that I can train a group of people like Bene Gesserits.

    I want to change the education system so that all the SJs, NFs, NTs, and SPs are educated in a way they can relate and understand. They also have periods of social mixing where they learn that every type brings something good with it and none is better than the other.

    I want to make a treadmill or bike that you can power for electricity sell it back to the grid like they do with solar energy...or at least lower your bill by a few dollars a month.

    I want to make a machine that will wash a baby. If you've ever had kids and dealt with a blow-out diaper, you will know what I mean. It's call the Dunk-O-Matic. You hold the baby and dunk their little hind parts in it and they come out clean!

    I want to re-engineer humans so that in times of great need, we can photosynthesize sunlight. Yeah...sexy green skin just like an Orion!

    The snow reminds me of an idea I had as a child.
    I was firmly convinced school should be there when the weather was too boring to play in it. Snow that stays(*) or hot enough to play in the sand: free. We could perfectly make it up - why go outside if it's only sunny and not warm enough to play in the sand? School is more interesting than that. In short: weather-dependent holidays.
    I also didn't want the adults to complain about snow. I was convinced God listened to them and gave them what they wanted. I did my best to thank God extensively for each snowflake in the hope He would send more (and more and more and enough to play for a whole winter!)
    Didn't work

    (*) In Belgium, it never (**) snows enough to get free from school. So we children wanted snow when we had free and no snow when we were cooped up in the school and couldn't use it to play.
    (**) Except THIS winter, maybe. School hasn't stopped yet, but this is the first time I've heard trucks weren't allowed on the highway.

    I actually am still of that opinion. We could abolish useless holidays like Assumption (when it rains - and who literally believes that Jesus has been gone bodily to heaven anyway?) and All Saints day (when it is misty - and who wants to remember dead people who you never knew before? Nobody does that; they just use the free day to do whatever that has nothing to do with saints any more!) and instead get some Snow Holidays.
    No traffic is allowed on the roads, except for sleighs. No salt thrown on the roads to destroy the precious snow (and no salt getting into the nature). No stress about having to drive in the snow. Even the adults can enjoy the snow again! You pass your day playing with snow and you make hot soup and hot chocolate. Doesn't that sound wonderful?
    (I've got to work out some details yet. Like - how to get the ingredients for the soup at your house? And what with emergencies?)

    Edit. I'm now thinking of reforming the whole holiday system. In my country, the Muslims get free on their holidays as well as on the Christian ones, which annoys some Christian people who want to get free on the Muslim holidays too! And then there is Easter with its impossible date calculation, which results in ever-changing lengths of trimesters at school. And then there is Assumption and those other holidays that always are on a Thursday, which makes that some classes get only one hour of your subject in the whole trimester.
    Let's spread those holidays a bit. What do you think of winter and summer solstice + the equinoxes?
    The Christians can celebrate Christmas on winter solstice, the atheists and the wiccans can celebrate the solstice, the Jews can celebrate Hannukah then... and it's all on the same day, which allows families with members of different faith to celebrate all together! Wouldn't that bring a little bit of more tolerance in the world?

    If all smokers would exhale the entire smoke they have inhaled (and will inhale) during their lifetime, at the same time, would the planet go dark?

    At last I implemented an idea I've had for some time. Make my own nanowrimo-style word counter. I don't know a lot about nanowrimo, except that it is on november (the busiest month of the year) and that it is a contest to write at least a certain amount of words during that month.
    I fear that if I do that, I wouldn't dare to scratch and the quality of the work would be really low. I wanted a word counter which didn't only measure words, but also time devoted, words scratched,...
    I made an excel spreadsheet for that. I used it already at the end of novel #3. It shows a more or less constant total word count, but lots of scratchings and rewritings. Now I'm using it for the start of novel #4, and it shows lots of progress and almost no scratchings. Which is quite normal, I guess - the editing comes at the end.
