    The most useless machine on Earth gets an upgrade

    Robert T. Gonzalez

    When Wired posted its list of "The World's Most Annoying Technologies" a few weeks back, "The Most Useless Machine" (a box with a toggle switch, which, when flipped, causes a mechanical nubbin to emerge from inside the box, flip the switch back, then retreat back inside the box) didn't even get an honorable mention.

    Perhaps by adding more toggle switches, and attaching the machine's toggle-flipping appendage to the sliding track of a printer's ink-cartridge rail, the "Useless Machine Advanced Edition" will earn a place among 2013's most irritating tech.

    Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
    A morning filled with 400 billion suns
    The rising of the milky way"

    If we do not destroy ourselves
    We will one day venture to the stars" -Carl Sagan

    Sort of reminds me of a jack in the box. You wind up the little lever and then "POP!" the clown comes out. At least with that, there's the potential to frighten small children and stop pacemakers. Who ever thought it was a good idea to suddenly make a scary clown pop up into a child's face. No wonder people are screwed up in my generation. We were traumatized at an early age by some sadistic toy maker.
    The Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about

    Reminds me of some little creature defending its nest, ready to bite your fingers off!
