A few years ago I was delighted and chagrined to see that someone had put out something I had "invented" as a youth - I also "invented" the Mirage Deck, and, I thought, using toilet paper for comedy effect, but those were heady days, my friends, heady days. I can't seem to recall what the marketed device was called. It was a sort of belly servante that allowed you to drop into it, and have an object appear immediately in your pocket, if you went to the trouble to have the tailoring done. Does anyone remember what it was called? Do you have one you don't use? Would you be interested in my original take on taking two roundy steel hoop like things and making them join together? Any help is appreciated.
And, please, realize that, in using quotes around the word "invented", I was trying to make it very, very clear that I was speaking in a facetious manner, making wry and self deprecating remarks regarding the experience of, in youthful exuberence and ignorance, independently creating something (in this case, thinking I had "invented" the Kellar rope tie, only to discover that the Davenport Brothers had developed it years before), only to find that someone had created it long before I was born. So, there's no need for anyone to respond in a snarky way by just saying something like "yeah riiiiight" or "sure."
