    The aerial fire bucket and the cash machine. Rarely are such useful developments featured.

    Instant cash machine?! What a dumb idea, it’ll never catch on. I mean, who would want to get money in the middle of the night, and the bank teller’s union will set them straight. Well, maybe in France, but never in America.

    What? Oh, never mind.

    Unfortunately, after the lightning-proof tent with inflatable seat was tested in a storm, it was found the fabric was not washable.
