I'm not too tall and I'm not too short
unless I'm trying to see what's in the back
of kitchen cupboards.
I'm too short to see what's in the back of
upper cabinets and too tall to bend over
easily to see what's at the rear of lower
Enter the reversible adhesive kitchen
mirror ... a "spring loaded" mirror,
hinged along one edge, that adheres to
the inside of a kitchen cabinet door. The
mirror would be mounted on upper
cabinet doors with the hinge on the
bottom so that when the door is opened,
the spring loaded mirror angles slightly
down (towards my upward turned face) so
that I can see the reflection of what's in
the back of the cabinet. The opposite
mounting instructions apply for low
cabinets, the spring would be on the top,
so when the door opens, the mirror angles
up ... as I peer into it and the resulting
reflection of the lowest and most difficult
to see contents of my cabinets. Obviously,
the mirror and/or spring assembly would
have to be adjustable so when opened the
reflection would not just be one's own
mug, but the mugs in the back as well!
Those every decade kitchen cleanings no
longer need to provide back of cabinet

||//Bad form// - not necessarily. Some don't like it, some don't care, some encourage it. Personally, because of the stigma of the +1, I wait 'til somebody else puts on the first bun, then add my own to skip over the single mark. Later, I can retract it.
||I like the idea, because the wifey consistently requests an inventory scan of the high cupboards when I have my hands full of something else.
||My disappointment at this unexpected
turn of events can only be dulled (though
not completely alleviated) by another
||If "bunning" my own ideas means voting
for (or against) them, than I'm an innocent
man. If it means trying many ideas on
your first day of having an account, than,
as O.J. is my witness, I'm absolutely 100%
||Could someone explain to me what it
means to "bun" my own idea? I'm guessing
it doesn't mean voting for my idea, and I'm
guessing it doesn't mean . . . . Well, I just
have no clue.
||By the way, [Arcana], don't leave your hat lying around.... one of the HB residents has peculiar toilet habits. We've tried all sorts of remedial therapy but, well, [UB] is basically just an unreconstructed recidivist.
||I'm rarely *cranky*. the discussion about voting for your own ideas has been held many times before and the general consensus is that most people vote for their own ideas. <sticks tongue out at [unabubs]>
||+1 for the idea although I think its been posted before.
||Ooops. Arcana, please accept my
apologies, and this spare half-glass of
absinthe. I had jumped to a conclusion
and landed on my arse. Profuse apologies.
This kind of thing is the main argument
for not having the death penalty.
||Take no notice, Arcana. I respectfully refer
you to the concluding sentence of UB's
