    Thank you so much for the talk. Doing something useless or creating something useless may not always be a bad thing. In fact it could be something good to do. Like you do here, with your enthusiasm, sharing something that you really like to do, even if it looks not worthed to do, but it turns out to be a good thing. Thank you so much.

    Are these ideas worth spreading, a machine to brush your teeth? I am am sure that is humanities greatest problem, brushing teeth, really.... and the justification is "at least you are asking the question"???, this is a whole new mountain of stupid

  29. Sean C

    Sean CMonth ago

    You don't really need a machine to brush your teeth with; there is another way, one that involves no machine, no brushing.....just some chewing. What it requires is some form of sugar-free chewing gum, a dab of toothpaste, and some medium-fine grained sand (like beach sand, for instance). You chew the gum a bit to get it nice and malleable, then spit it out and flatten it down as much as you can. Then you add that dab of toothpaste, and sprinkle some sand on top, then kind of roll that gum back up so the toothpaste and sand is inside a new little ball. Then just pop that sucker back in your mouth and chew away....The toothpaste will deal with bacteria and whitening, the sand will handle the "scrubbing" to get the crud off your teeth, and the gum is mostly there to keep the whole process going, and because trying to "chew" on just paste and sand really doesn't seem at all effective or particularly easy......

    Hey Simone Giertz! Hoping you'll still read this. This may be not so important for you but for me it is. I never knew we're experiencing the same problem. I also love making things out of my imaginary. The difference only is I'm still stuck in that problem.😅 And this video completely inspired me.. I'm very thankful that TED Talk made this video.. Thank you so much.😁

    No.. We shouldn't build useless things. That's why were struggling to weigh mass depopulation through war to secure resources for our mindless mass. We could be diverting resources from things like calculators that exist digitally in all smartphones to increasing the standards of all in one devices. At the same time increasing standards for AI learning systems to make VIRTUAL useless things to look for things that can be used in needed things. Sorry sweety, but in the real world, disease logic ends with APEX reasoning, and that means who is left alive. Please don't inspire that.. Because we have disease warlabs between heavily populated areas of the mass world wide ON PURPOSE. G20..

    I've reinvented my life - took me longer than her to figure that out! I'm carving out a niche for myself inventing >VERY< useful things. See PrepNserve.com It has been a long haul but once you realize it is the journey and it's supposed to be fun, it all flows better. She has some hilarious videos (the vegetable cutter would work well with my product! One container could hold all the digits she cuts off). Performance anxiety? Nope! She totally overcame that!
