Dehydrated Water: Superfail

Hello IGWers,

I saw a posting on Boing Boing speaking of a product called Dehydrated Water in a can. I have not seen or heard of anything this ridiculous in quite sometime. What exactly does dehydrated water in a can consist of? I would think hydrogen and oxygen, but wouldn’t the dehydrated water just be in another state.

Whoever is selling dehydrated water is also selling coastal property in Nebraska. This is a straight superfail. Hopefully this product either is a spoof or limited to a very small geographic area.

Booyah of the Week

Hello IGWers,

Innovation sometimes means kicking the crap out of the odds. A retired man in Michigan holed not one, but two holes in the same round. Holy crap man! This is ridiculous and harder than winning the lottery.

Why Airlines Will be Gyms

Hello IGWers,

The recent news of Delta Airlines charging for a second checked bag is quite disturbing for a number of reasons. The first of which is that $50.00 for a stupid second bag is irrational. The second is now every man, woman and child is going to try to fit everything in the overhead bin. You wanted shorter lines, you got them with the cost of airfare, but you have to subtract the packing fails that everyone from Uncle Joe to Grandma Carol encounter when stuffing an over-sized bag in the over-head bin. Third, it is a simple equation. The next hike is another surcharge on the bags. However, following that is obviously a weightloss program. But, if you look at your success in weightloss programs you might be successful as you have obviously failed two other ones before.

Hey airlines, you make me step on a scale, I am going to have to use one of those Rocketeer contraptions or worse. I might have to fly heavy heavy discount. You know the type of planes that were christened when nuclear test drills were still normal. I certainly don’t want that airlines so please behave yourselfs.

To airlines sucking the life out of travel, food, daylight, budgets and vacations. Why don’t you just kill a baby seal and hit a pedestrian so you can anger everyone airlines?

Rocketeer Emerges

Hello IGWers,

I have to say that the personal jetpack has emerged onto the scene as of today. It is slightly smaller than a grand piano, but you can hover in the air. The fact that the jet pack has appeared is not an innovation gone wrong. People have spent countless hours trying to get people to fly on their own. However, I am a little concerned about the safety of wheeling a grand piano on your back filled with gasoline safety flying the friendly skies. I think that government is going to kill this innovation. People flying around everywhere makes them harder to find and certainly harder to control their speed limit.

The Rocketeer is also not that great of a movie for a rival. Oh sweet, night time news will be all over it, eventually leading to more stupid Rocketeer toys at BK. At least BK doesn’t have to launch another King based video game.

To the Rocketeer destroying a flock of geese!

Thoughts on the Virtual Food Drive

Hello IGWers,

I have gone corporate today to pay the bills. It really cuts into my blogging time, but the first innovation gone wrong has since emerged. The concept is simple, the virtual food drive. The virtual food drive should be while easy to understand, but it is not. The concept is rather difficult surrounding the word “virtual”. I’m thinking that the food must be real so you give or donate the food over the Internet. But then again, if the food was virtual it would sure speed things along.

Why oh why, do such beneficial ideas get such horrible names? This is only slightly better than online rockclimbing and the virtual cubicle.

To determining who the heck can actually stand virtual food!

It Takes a Chef

Hello IGWers,

The premise for the show is simple. It Takes a Thief encourages people to secure their place after a robber breaks in. It Takes a Chef encourages people to cook better after a 5-star chef breaks in and whips up a 5-course meal without the resident’s knowledge. Possible break-in chefs include: Emeril, Jamie Oliver, and Mario Batali.

50 Cent Suing Taco Bell

Hello IGWers,

The Taco Bell lawsuit is definitely an innovation gone wrong. So, it appears that the Taco Bell executives saw the popularity of the McDonald’s rap and Burger King raps on YouTube. They wanted to follow suit with the lackluster appeal of the Taco Bell dog nowadays. Thus, they proposed that Fiddy aka Ferrari F-50 aka 50 Cent change his name through their drive-through.

However, it appears that 50 Cent didn’t authorize this drive-through purchase. Taco Bell thought he should change his name to 79, 89 or 99 Cent. 50 Cent is thoroughly unamused and is suing for 4 million dollars.

Taco Bell tried to use Internet logic in real-life and it didn’t work. Turns out that permission is kind of a big deal.

Taco Bell now faces losing the equivalent of 2.68 million Cheesy Gordita Crunches or 5.06 million cheese roll-ups.

Nice one Taco Bell. Might have to get a couple more pics out of that stupid dog.

To more Taco Bel gone wrong!
