You forgot two of the biggest ones that do exist:


Non-alcoholic Beer (The man who invented this should be slapped and sterilized).

Decafeinated Coffee (Again, a slapping and snipping will be needed).

20. Ejector seats for Helicopters

Actually I know of 2 different systems for this.

1.) The Main Rotor gets blown off and than the seat ejects.
2.) The seat ejects SIDEWAYS from the helicopter.

Don't know if they have been put to use as such, but I have seen footage of them being tested.

:D

They sure have. The KA-50 and Ka-52 have ejection seats - the rotors are blown prior to ejection. Some work was done to incorporate an ejection seat into the AH-1 Cobra, but interest waned and it was abandoned.

The above do exist.

2 - My girlfriend owns one
9 - I used to have a solar powered calculator in which there was this ac adapter input, I think.
16 - For deaf people. No joke. It shakes like a mobile phone on the vibration mode.

cheers,

A deaf friend of mine has a silent door bell. It basically rattles on the ground and he can feel it vibrate.

Hellen Keller apparently had an alarm clock contraption that would gently shake her bed when it was time to get up.

It takes someone to keep punching me in the back of the head to get me out of bed.
