To help you through those times when reality just isn't cooperating with your brilliant idea. WIBNI-Man, for instance, will connect your equator-generator-car cable to the moon for you....

       Senator, I've read some of Vernon's posts--Vernon was a good friend--and Senator, globaltourniquet is no Vernon. (I mean that in a good way.)

       Mephista: I'm sure they all did. The difference, however, is that an invention is the "follow-through", or attempt at solving a specifc portion of a WIBNI idea. As jutta explains, the WIBNI:   

       "Describes something desirable, but unobtainable, without giving any new clues as to how it could be done. Ideas that already occur in existing science fiction usually belong here - time travel, stopping time, flying cars, infinite resources."

       Argh: was going to post this (or something like it) myself after the latest round of Wibnis. You missed out anti-gravity (unless that's the leaping bit), genetic engineering and free energy, all key elements in the uber-Wibni.
