Toss Me A Beer, Please
His parents must be so proud. A Duke graduate has come up with a mechanism that launches beer cans roughly 20 feet from the fridge to the couch. The full story can be read here.
Nowhere in the story does it mention if this guy -- John Cornwell -- has a job, but maybe this will be his ticket to fame and fortune. Well, at least (a little bit of) fame. At the very least, Miller Lite will probably send him a free case or two.
Instead of blowing $400 and over 150 man-hours putting this thing together, why not just plug the mini-fridge in next to the couch? He's put in an awful lot of time, effort, and money for the ability to be lazy. Why not be lazy from the start?
