Back Mirror

Just in case you need to deal with those hard-to-reach areas without straining your neck.

A mirror or set of connected mirrors designed to allow you to see the back of your head, your back, butt, etc. This is helpful in several areas, including: giving yourself a haircut, checking for/removing head lice or dandruff, checking out your haircut from the back, peeling off dead skin from a sunburn, shaving your ass, etc. I ask that if you annotate, you also vote, and vice versa. Please state your vote (positive, negative, neutral) and reason why. I know at first you might think right away that this idea is baked...I'm pretty sure it's not. Don't automatically assume it is, just because it's been suggested before doesn't mean it's been made. Have a nice day, kids.

3D Mirror http://www.halfbake...om/idea/3D_20Mirror
Not Baked, perhaps, but certainly Halfbaked. (Except this one used the magic of technology rather than reflections.) [DrCurry, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       [DrCurry] I know, it's the same concept...that one even seems cooler technology-wise. But at the same time, that idea seems really far out, don't you think?

       [l3lackEyedAngels] You must not be getting it fully. The basic idea is so you don't have to strain your neck to turn around and look over your shoulder. You're proposing standing at a mirror turned around. Not quite the same. Sorry, kiddo, that excuse doesn't cut it.

       [l3lackEyedAngels] I accidentally went to click 'annotate' and got a little trigger-happy and pressed 'delete' on your last post. Sorry, feel free to reannotate. And take a breather. Looks like you're getting a bit flustered. I won't call you 'kiddo' anymore. God forbid you should get REALLY angry at me. I don't think I could take it....

Keep in mind that I have the power to delete anything I want. I don't like deleting peoples' annotations and don't usually do it, so if you want your opinion to stick around, keep it PAR-friendly. Thanks.

       The movie "House of God". The Resident tells the Interns that he is getting rich and leaving the hospital because he has invented a mirrored instrument so the Interns can examine their own anus. [-]

       Height-adjustable - can also be used as the "Does my bum look big in this?" mirror.
hippo, Jun 05 2004
  

       [Klaatu] Yeah. THAT proves me wrong. Better save everyone the grief and toss myself out a 5th story window.

       Ok - you get a vote because I can see the point. Dying the back of your hair while trying not to dye the skin? A sensible way of doing it is the key here - how's about a) two of those extendible wall mounting shaving mirrors with the criss-cross arms that can bounce the image around you - or b) a mirrored shower cubicle? Maybe a bit too unnerving sharing a shower with thousands of yourselves..

       Hasn't this been made up by everyone?   

       I have thought about this one many times. I think everybody eventually thinks about having a set of mirrors so they can comb their hair better. I don't think it's that original.   

       No offense.

       My Barber has it in his shop. And I have been getting my hair cut there ever since I was a little kid and the only place I could see nearly naked ladies pics was while getting my hair cut. So, nothing original here, poked arse.

       I am voting negative.   

       I, myself, once used 2 mirrors to look at the back of my head.   

       I was 6 years old.   

       Therefore, if no-one else baked it .. I personally did!

       Your idea lacks sufficient description...BONE!
daseva, Jun 09 2004
  

       And, you're way too patronizing, especially considering that your ideas suck.
daseva, Jun 09 2004
  

       You're not actually posing an idea, just saying "somebody should make something that does x" without bothering to come up with a solution yourself. Also, baked by everyone who owns a hand mirror and a bathroom mirror.

And if I could offer multiple negative votes for whining, I would.
