Self-Preserving Tie

Slick Silk Flick Tricks
 
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,
against]

A small, powerful compressor, mounted inside the knot on your tie, with a camera and an array of tiny nozzles, cunningly disguised within the pattern.

When a drip of egg volk or soy sauce begins its descent toward your tie, the camera picks it up and sets off the compressor, which fires a jet of high pressure air through the nozzles, to force it harmlessly away.

If there are a number of such ties being worn at the table then it may be possible to use them to play a game similar to "one bounce" with peas or grains of rice.

       Good luck with that. They've become rather entrenched.
