I’m not saying this invention is the solution to all the world’s problems. But it is pretty fabulous.
Out of the world of art comes this fabulous thing I read about this week on MentalFloss.com. It’s by an artist named Elisabeth Buecher and it’s called “My Shower Curtain is a Green Warrior.”
The concept is to help save water. And here’s how it works: It’s a shower curtain that looks like a normal shower curtain at first. But then after about 10 minutes, the spikes that are designed on the curtain inflate when it’s time to get out. The artist calls it a “design for pain and for our own good.”
Another design from the line is called “Trap” and inflates around the person showering after 4 minutes, trapping them. While these are not actually for sale, it does get us thinking about water.
I think it’s a fabulous idea, and this should totally be mass manufactured and marketed. At least in California.
Imagine the excitement of a shower, when you don’t know if, at any second, spikes will come out of your curtain! You go in to get clean, and a video game breaks out!
As they said in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” I’ve got vision, and the rest of the world’s wearing bifocals.
**Next up today, never in a million years would I think a man shaving his beard and then “meeting” his family again would be such compelling video.
But watch this: An Israeli ad agency filmed Amit, an Israeli man who had been growing a beard for 14 years, finally shave it all off and then go around surprising his family.
The whole thing is great, but my favorite part is at 1:40, when Amit meets his father… who thinks he’s a stranger in his store.
And finally, to put a smile on your face on humpday Wednesday, a little girl named Johanna doing a dance routine to Aretha Franklin.
Hell, she’s channeling Aretha. This video has been seen more than 18 million times in the past month. Only 4 of those were from me… So adorable.
