I found this site when I thought I had invented the pulse code modulated rumble strip and was looking for prior art. Boy was I in for a surprise. I love this place. There isn't a person here (myself not excepted) who doesn't think that if he had been born in the fifteenth century that he would have been on par with Da Vinci :-)

Sites like this should be justification for a complete overhaul of the patent process, which seems to have lost the concepts of both obviousness and prior art.
