Isn't the theraphy buddy

Isn't the theraphy buddy interesting. The world is full of lonely people and its sad that they can't get support so they need to talk to a stuffed blue thing.

I think these constant two

I think these constant two hour shows are prrof that ABC has no other show that they can offer. Comn on already, it made alot of sense to do a reap before the Final 12, but are we going over this again.

I would MUCH rather see the others of the 50 or 25 that did not make it. To me, that is the more fascinating piece of all of this.

#2 Car Wrappers
I think he would have been better off have a large scale wrapper for a car.

The Most Outrageous Inventor - #1

Bladder Buddy

This guy has more air time than the people that made it in the top 12. Remember this all you people that want to audition next season.

bladder buddy

I love when he says he tried this in front of a bus stop and that the people knew he was doing out of the ordinary. They probably thought he was touching himself.

Can you imagine if you were

Can you imagine if you were there next to him. Hoenstly, he looks a littlw weird and in that get up, I would have been moving far away from him. Plus, you can totally hear it when someone is peeing. Eww,

The bladder buddy IS a good invention...

Think of the SuperDome in New Orleans during Katrina. Thousands of people were stranded with overflowing toilets for several days. They had to go somewhere. Why not in a personal sealed bladder instead of the hallways. The stench would have been contained and the Dome would have been more sanitary. He missed his market. This invention is for emergency situations. Not for walking down the street and feeling the urge.

Alienation Buddy

I think the "Therapy Buddy" missed its market--all the alienated people out there. Buddy's statement that "Everything is going to be all right" was its downfall. No, I take that back...the blue skin ruined his chances. No, that's not right, either. Buddy looked like the model used on "Alien Autopsy".

IF he would change "Therapy Buddy" to "Alienation Doll", I think it just might sell. A little rewording, such as "Hey, dude, everything sucks" might be more attractive.

Bike is not new. It's called the Bilenky Viewpoint

copy and paste... www.bilenky.com/viewpnt.html Wish the show allowed real "ORIGINAL" inventors to showcase. Mary Lou made a huge legal mistake. What do all of you think.

Different

I don't think the two bikes are identical. Francisco's front pedals power the front tire and the Viewpoint's power the rear. Also the front rider on the Viewpoint steers the bike, not so on the DTract.

What next?

Well what do you do once you've gone, walk around with a rolled up, piss filled, body bag all day? What are you supposed to do when you've relieved yourself, empty it in a public restroom?? Store it in your trunk? backpack? Why not just walk around with a catheter bag strapped to your leg under your clothes?

I think this was a waste of

I think this was a waste of time. An annoying waste of time. It was pure schlock. Ten of the worst ideas we've already seen. I would've been more interested if Freemantle spent more time on what the hell happened during the "development" phase. It was insulting to my intellegence. I have zero respect for the producers of this show. They missed a wonderful opportunity to put all that money they have behind a more respectable show like they do at Home Makeover. They could've schooled the American public in the whole inventing process and instead, took the low road and focused on the more base instincts of entertainment. This is not up to any standards I want to be associated with. The show is a perfect example of throwing a ton of money at something and producing a ton of crap. It's television excrement. It's not nearly as funny as the Gong Show which in fact was done with probably one trillionth the budget. It's amazing how much money some people have just to throw away.

Urine Doll

Maybe the "Therapy Buddy" could be combined with the piss sack and made into a "Urine Doll". The doll could have a hole in the front to insert your penis and piss. Since the doll would cover your otherwise exposed penis, you can piss in public. The urine doll can be emptied later.
