    Friday night #partyprep - pin the moustache on Mario, cheesy fire flower balls, princess Peach rings, DK bananas, and a question block pinata. Also bob-ombs and fixins for a front lightpole victory flag.


    Who the hell are you, and why are you such a better parent than I?

    See you in 20 or so.
    I have my own pillow, toothbrush, and NASA approved diaper. I do eat quite a bit though.

    The Goomba pudding cups are awesome! But the block of C4 in front of them looks a bit out of place.

    LOL that's the pinata stick :)

    @Jennifer Post @M_Ware thanks to @Dark_mark , we blew our kids' minds recently. They were trying to read each other's minds, and they said "mummy and daddy, you try - write a number down without each other seeing! See if they're the same!".

    Obviously you can guess how this ends.

    @Dark_mark , helping parents be heroes in the eyes of their children is the highest form of philanthropy.
    I see the Order of Merit badge in your future......

    Rooster entrepreneurs, coders, programmers, app developers, witch doctors, etc. Here are 3 ideas that need to be developed now. People (me, for sure) would pay for:

    1) an app that would filter all things Kardashian from all of my devices.
    2) a printer that would consistently print the 3 times/year when I actually need to print.
    3) And I'm serious about this one....develop CO and smoke detector functionality for smart phones. I travel a fair amount, seems like everywhere I go there has been a recent CO related death due to incorrectly vented pool heaters, etc.

    Ok folks, get out there and make these happen!

    @Johns622 is there a CO sensor in your home that your phone is able to monitor. or is the sensor actually in your phone? If I'm in a hotel or a camper I would like for my phone to detect high CO levels on its own.

    All this jibberish about useful inventions is distracting us from the real issue here. No one noticed that @Matt received the Kim Jong Il badge.
    1. Congrats @Matt !!!!!!!
    2. While Matt deserves all accolades we can give, we must suck as a group of people to give him this.
    3. Should Matt post a special GIF for this occasion?

    edit: to be fair, I got the badge 1 year after @Dark_mark and 19 months after @AaronWebstey so it's definitely esteemed company. Because we shitpost more than anyone.

    You could buy a battery powered CO detector and take it with you when you travel. Get something decent and goes off on low levels of CO. Most residential ones alarm at 75ppm. If you can find one, get one that alarms at a lower level or at least has a display so you can see what the level is. You don't want to be staying somewhere sucking in 50ppm of CO all night and not know it because your monitor doesn't go off until 75 ppm.

    I took a CO class years ago and the teacher would do that. I believe most people are killed by CO in their homes. Hotels were #2. Never stay near the pool in a hotel. Most of the pool heaters aren't serviced regularly and are the cause of most hotel CO deaths.

    He also found some cars would set off his CO detector when he had the windows open. With the new aero shapes of some cars and the coanda effect, the exhaust would actually get pulled back into his car when driving on the highway.

    @wchevron you and my dad are on exactly the same path. But wouldn’t it be nice if that functionality could be incorporated into something we already carry with us everywhere we go and are diligent about keeping charged?

    I like the idea. Something in similar form factor like a mobile credit card reader like Square. Small device you just plug into your phone.

    Any sensor can shrink to a maximally useful size, given enough money, time, and public will. :)

    I thought you wanted to measure the CO levels in your house while you were gone. You want to measure CO levels where you are while you're gone. Got it #sworry

    Can I jump on @M_Ware 's entrepreunerial ask for life-saving technology with some that are less noble?

    1. A sports bra with t-fal like properties that you can put on post-swim, or take off when sweaty, without getting stuck or having to ask strangers in the locker room for help.
    2. Compression tights that go on easily like regular tights and then are heat activated so they become compressive once on, so that putting them on isn't a workout in and of itself.

    Ooo, good ones @kjrunnin. I was wishing for scissors in an ankle holster just the other day for a damp bra emergency post-swimming.

    14 Sports Bras with front zippers? Thanks Runner's World! (although half the models looks like they don't even need one)

    LOL... some of the reviews... tales of spontaneously unzipping bras... I'm thinking these were designed by men
