(#97) Jane: Like a fire brigade
(#99) Brian: I could be so much more
When my blur button is complete, I will have fulfilled my destiny as humanityís intellectual offspring by improving human lives. And when the reporters ask about my magnificent achievement, I just might have to mention that I had to toil away at my amazing creation in our apartment, without the benefit of proper laboratory conditions!
And perhaps someone with influence and connections will recognize how much more I could accomplish in the right environment and help me gain access to a real laboratory. With the appropriate equipment and the companionship of worthy colleagues, who knows how far I could go?!
That would be magnificent.
(#18) Trish: Don't make me regret it
(#56) Brian: That only happened once
(#94) Brian: Invention advice for action figures
A: My siblings are still bitter about the catapult because we all had to spend a week helping with the post-fire cleanup. How was I to know that my catapult would be strong enough to reach a hot pan of oil in the kitchen?! My planned trajectory was the hallway. There were no hot pans of oil in the hallway. Thatís the last time I build a war machine out of kitchen utensils.
I do not deserve this reputation. When I create my next invention without a single spark, they will see that the catapult incident was just a fluke.
Iíll show them. Iíll show them all.
Q: Iím having trouble with some of the cats and dogs in our neighborhood. Do you have any adviceóor inventionsóto help action figures avoid becoming chew toys?
A: I was working on a keep-away spray, but it dissolved Alexís clothes for some reason and Iím not allowed to work with chemicals any more.

(#100) Alex: My kung fu is the best
(#95) Alex: I have a safety plan
(#98) Jane: Bet I can hit the stereo
(#57) Jane : I wish poker had do-overs
(#90) Brian: My new invention
(#109) Brian: Making it work
Bilingual families or people trying to learn a second language might like it. Schools might see it as a teaching opportunity. Oh, and if I make it available to schools, those kids will grow up to buy one later! On second thought, that strategy failed for Macintosh, so never mind.
I wonder what happens if you use the blur button on a station that doesnít have a Spanish simulcast. Will the audio stay stable, or will it go mute? What if I make it jump to a Spanish station with an English simulcast and then jump back again?
This didnít go the way I wanted it to, but Iím trying to stay positive. I met my primary objective of blurring the screen. I didnít start a fire. (Take THAT, Jane!) Joe seems happy. And Alex is now whiling away the afternoon learning Spanish terms for autopsy procedures.
I can live with that.
