Welcome to the Inventor’s Lounge. Here you will find a relaxed atmosphere. You are among friends. No bickering, fighting, complaining, just good old conversation about a LPS, inventing and life. Cover charge: One active entry in an LPS and a sense of humor. Remember we are open 24/7

Okay Badone1965, you don’t look 21! I’m gonna need to see some id pal.

Well, Ms. Moilanen, because you were our first patron, drinks are on the house for life!

I’m working on my second drink and then calling it a night. Today was quite exciting…don’t know how people can handle this for a long search. Guess I’ll find out soon, since I’ve got 5 more ideas in 4 LPS’s…

I am calling it a night too… pretty soon. I am thankful to have found EN for the idea submission opportunities, but I am also thankful for the people here. This is a great group!

Wow, this quickly turned into a drinker’s thread. Hey Robert, give me the keys! Okay, so you have only had two drinks, but they were 40 ounces each :)

Colonel, apparently we are all drunk with the same potent beverage aka G7! Next to it, tequila is a soft drink!

I can’t even sleep because I’m so excited over my G7! I just asked Matt in another forum if there were Ed Nation shirts available…maybe I’ll need to make myself a G7 shirt, kind of like my old Fantastic 4 shirt. Definitely the G8ers should have shirts made!

Good morning, all you G7’ers (ain’t it great). Katherine, I also love the shirt idea; I know I’d get one.
Frozen margarita with Jose Cuervo Gold, please, heavy salt, but I better wait until later and get some work done first (or I won’t have the $$ to enter these great LPSs!)
Have a great day, all. Here’s hoping we all stay green today!!

Appropriate morning libations: (used to bartend)

Bloody Mary
Gin Fizz or Ramous Fizz
Champagne Cocktail
Mimosas
Beer mixed w/ Bloody Mary Mix (if you’re hungover)
Screwdriver or Greyhound
And I think Vodka Collins would work, too, A!!! Christine, technically margs aren’t served until at least lunch ;)

Margaret, WD-40…there are a few of us in here.

Alcoholic Nation! Drug-of-choice War redux sans Ron’s hypocrisy and strained logic.

weee hew we’re partying now!

I don’t know whether to sit through the 50th retelling of that stupid anecdote, prepare some rags for the spilled beer or look for a drunk chick to nail, oh damn I was just sucker punched in the back of the head smashing my face into my shot glass so that my eyeball has been “cookie-cuttered”.

Seriously, I live in a crack house and it’s the alcoholics here that are actually more troublesome.

Chris,

Have you seen the commercial for Lee Majors’ product on TV? He’s selling the Lee Majors’ Rechargable Bionic Hearing Aid. https://www.buybionicear.com/

Matthew…that video is hysterical. As you may know, I hale from the land of legalized marijuana and I basically grew up in a “Weeds” household. While it certainly might be a better drug than alcohol, there are plenty of drawbacks. I now limit my pro-legalization to only those who are terminal and such.

Awfully quiet around WD today. Our little forum is even sliding down the page. It’s almost 5pm in NC. Hopefully some news soon. Until then, a glass of wine.

Of course, as with anything used out of moderation. There are degrees to everything we established in a different forum right? Maybe it is expected then that at first legalization people go a little overboard. I’ve seen people lose their livelihoods, perspectives, and families over it though, and it isn’t pretty. There are links to schizophrenia with adolescant usage (because schizophrenia develops by both genetic and environmental factors), as well as a whole ton of new literature suggesting that chronic smokers can permanently alter their brain chemistry in the region of the brain housing emotions, so that some emotions or sensations are actually deadened. The term “pothead” wasn’t coined out of admiration for someone who smoked. We have a lot of Spicolis out here.

Besides, why stop there when hashish is far more elegant of a high…lol…just kidding.

Penny,

All,

Sorry, I feel excluded and annoyed that I may be ostracized by my desire to celebrate my DOC. I’ll share a story and get off the soapbox, thank you for your tolerance.

There was a PSA one night, about this teen girl who smoked a J and then got preggers…she says, “Pot won’t get you nowhere”.

The next day the Ithaca Journal ran a story about how Carl Sagan was an “avid pot user” and that he used it to facilitate problem solving – OMG! That’s what I use it for (and depression and insomnia).

BTW, I’m extra annoyed because I have broken a personal rule about redundancy as I pointed this out…(wow I’ve been here about a year now, are there gonna be casting calls?) …awhile ago.

Penny, appetizers are at the end of the bar. You will find pretzels, popcorn, mini tacos and Rocky Mountain Oysters. Please, don’t forget to tip the piano man.

Mathew, you’re in the lounge man. You are free to speak! I don’t have insomnia, but I had a dream that I did :) Yeah, anybody know about the EE casting calls?

I don’t know what DOC is. Ostracized? I don’t think in here. You’re good with me anyway. MaryJane is good for some, not for all. I know doctors of linguistics who have written multiple books while high. Others turn into jobless fat asses. But for depression? MJ and alcohol are both depressants, right? Though I struggle at times, too, and don’t turn away a beer…;)

Colonel,
I asked Matt a couple of days ago about season 4 along with the possibility of EN working with Pitchmen. Attached is his response to EE. I am assuming it will start before the end of the year. I think I hit a nerve with the question.

“As far as Everyday Edisons goes, Season 3 is still in production. You guys will all be the first to know when Season 4 casting calls kick off. We’re not rushing it because we are not bound by the typical arbitrary timelines that commercial networks are (e.g., October kicks off all sit-coms). Plus, we’re making actual products – that requires a much longer timeline than filming a sit-com.”

Thanks Katherine and Al, I am not at all bothered by the delay, I was just curious along with Mathew. If we only had the EE casting calls and not the LPSs, I might be a little more anxious. I do look forward to the EE experience, but understand it can’t be rushed. They have given us a lot of opportunities and I am very grateful for that.

I use to be a heavy drinker. I started to slow down back in 93. I was out with all my Marines in Kinville (Nickname SINVILLE) across from Camp Hansen in Okinawa, Japan. I had two Rainbows, two Mia Tias, Two Long Island Ice Teas, Two thunderstrucks, and a couple of drinks I do not remember the name, but most of them were set on fire before I drank them. I left my Marines because they wanted to go to a SCIVY house (Whore house). Somehow I made it through the sentry at the gate. About 500 feet from the gate, I felt a tightness in my chest and fell in a ditch. I could not move for about 15 minutes. I had 2 groups of Marines pass me, but they could not see me, and I could not make enough noise to get their attention. I thought I was going to die. I finally got up and dragged myself back to my bed. I never drank like that again. I slowly gave up drinking. I have not had a beer in two years.

Alvin, Thanks for sharing. That must have been a scary moment…a ‘Come to Jesus’ moment in your life. I am glad you are here to tell us that story.

Thank you for your service to our country. I hold all military personnel with the highest regard. My son is Army ROTC at Indiana University…my youngest son is at the US Air Force Academy Summer Leaders Seminar right now, seeing if Air Force is the right fit for him.

Al, That is some serious consumption! I am glad you are alive and on two years without drinking. Thanks for sharing your story with us and for your service to our country!

I have slowed down too… way down. If I continued on the path I was on, I would be dead. Thankfully, when I got married, I also got things under control. Plus, I don’t want my kids to be raised by a drunk. They don’t deserve that. You can lose so much if it gets control of you. I think the conversation in this thread is pretty casual and think most of us are just playin’ the lounge part and not downing a bunch of drinks.

Matthew, Alvin, Colonel and all, we are all and each day presented with challenges and temptation, we embrace each as they excite us. It is what they do or don’t do that change us. Good, bad or indifferent. We have choices many in the world do not. Sometimes it is genetic, laziness or geographic to escape atrocities. Anger and complacency, other foes. We are what we are, I am what I am, just me, no judge of others as I am not without fault. I choose to laugh and smile, first at myself and with others, I like to be right but love to be reminded, life is self interpretation, live and let live.

Matthew, you are very intense, and very intelligent from the clips I have seen. I wish you trust and laughter and smiles from the heart. So many have something to bring and give to our life, but not all, we need to find that in ourselves and those that make it better, we need to let them know they did.

God Bless.

Good Luck To All!

p.s. As you can see, I have a one drink limit! LOL forever. Alvin, thanks and, good choice. No more trenches for you.

I think I missed happy hour :( Entertaining family from out of town…house finally quite…kids asleep, wife asleep, guests asleep, me…up, up, up. I guess I’ll have my drink by myself, the bar is still open. I can pour myself since the bartender has gone off to dream of sweet G8s. Have a pleasant tomorrow everyone, without the hangover.

Good morning G7s! Mine’s still there…

This is quite an interesting group, wouldn’t you say?

Today I shall distract myself and walk the dog (he’s a 7 month old 95 pound beast of a chocolate lab), pay bills (never fun), clean my office (what a mess!), and start my summer cleaning (this place will be spotless top to bottom inside and out by the end of the summer….okay I get distracted easily, the house is big, and I love to run out and shop for a doodad that I might need to organize a closet). If I can get any of that done today, I will consider it an accomplished day. But in reality I know that after I walk the dog, cool down, check the dashboard, I will be back on the computer most of the day seeing what y’all are up to.

Time for starbucks! See I’ve already changed my plans….
