Waiter Call Button at Restaurants <br><br> Airplanes have them for flight attendants, so why don't restaurants have them for waiters? If waiters came only when they were called, wouldn't that be more efficient for everybody?
The title is pretty self-explanatory. All of us come up with ideas for things, “they oughta make”, and this is mine. It’s my first time doing a list like this so some ideas are gonna be more awesome than others, but I’d say they range from “Pretty awesome”, to, “Objectively the best idea possible”.

8 Reasons I was Psyched to see Geraldo's Areolae in his Selfie
I’ve always liked extremely stupid stuff and being psyched about seeing Geraldo’s areolae certainly continues that proud tradition. Don’t get me wrong- I despise things that are stupid.
