Notes and a Medical Invention I’ll never make

I haven’t gotten around to so many things I think I should start posting my ‘to do’ list publicly to motivate myself.

When I was in school, 2012, I invented a few devices. Here are two for someone who wants to make money:

Remote Controlled Bladder Valve: basically mechanical ureter sphincter operated by a handheld remote control. Need to empty your bladder voluntarily? Press the button. Maybe it can have a pressure valve for best health. (If you can’t figure it out, I have some mechanical drawings)

Note: the remote control urethral sphincter concept applies to other anatomical sphincters.

Alternative Scrubs: My idea for medical scrubs decorated to please the ‘client’ such as: Bourbon bottles, hunting dogs and rifles for male geriatric care. ..or tattoos, motorcycles and trucks. Someone witty can create a ladies line…and the humor ideas in the ‘alternative’ realm are endless. Little grim reapers?

Why am I here today? I forgot.

Migraine Auras

Brilliant flashing trippy prismatic ribbon in odd transforming geometric shapes with fractile-like endless detail.

For over 20 years I’ve experienced a vision-impairing flashy light and last year I finally asked my optometrist what it was; Migraine Aura.

Driving in utter darkness on a flat Montana highway tonight I experienced such a fantastic, though blinding, light show of inexplicable detail…a wild transporting hallucination.

Closing my eyes makes it worse.

Always a ribbon made up of transforming jagged prism ribbon (brilliant light spectrum thread) dancing and vibrating in a blinding display …a kaleidoscope show of bright f-ing rainbows.

Well, I’ve always wanted to describe that, never have because I thought it was a personal going blind thing…maybe something I caused long ago…car accident, late night out…too many dead shows.. Turns out it’s common.

My first mobile blog entry.

Good enough phone, unprivileged user account, lots of enthusiasm, let’s see what we can do. 

Thanks developers. I feel spoiled.

I had to go move some hay but forgot my camera (phone). I rode past 200 ‘wild’ (rodeo stock) horses. If it weren’t so chilly I could have stayed another hour watching, inspecting, jokingly naming some and just enjoying the scene. They would come to the fence, but quickly flee if I approached.


Don’t buy a ticket, you’ve already won.

Another random, probably faulty, Kim thought:

So, I had this thought last week…

The chances of winning the lottery are something like 1 in 250 million. …but the chances of being a unique individual are 1 in 7 billion.

Forget buying a lottery ticket ~ You’ve already won the greatest ticket in the world.. a one in 7 billion chance to be you.
