    Making things smaller
    I would like to see a standard size of paper that is in proportion with an 8x11.5 but significantly smaller that would be used to print waivers, school syllabi's, govt documents and other such forms.
    Subscription
    I think that an online shoe store that has a subscription where you are sent new shoes on regular intervals would be neat for women who buy lots of shoes

    Shortage of organs, donors [P0002]
    There are many people requiring organ transplants, but not enough organs to go around. How do we address this problem?
    My solution: Propose government funding to create a medicine that cleanses and sterilizes organs from individuals who may have died from disease and infection. Contaminates are so plentiful in the organs of those who are dying nowadays, thats what is preventing many people from getting the organ donations that they need.
    Reduce speeding [P0019]
    What is the best way to reduce speeding on the highways?
    My solution: Raise the speed limits...?
    Eliminate Traffic Jams [P0047]
    How can we reduce:- trafic jams; road accidents; pollution; motor vehical repairs: road works and repairs; fuel consumption; -without reducing the amenity of the indepedent vehicle economy that exists.
    My solution: For traffic issues, have specialists take a closer look at the lights and how effective their timing really is. Road accidents can be prevented by eliminating the normal lanes that transitions into turn lanes, many crashes are caused by panicked people trying to merge. Pollution- people need to stop sucking so much and listen to scientists, carpool, get a more fuel efficient car. The rest straight up bores me.

    Reduce speeding [P0019]
    What is the best way to reduce speeding on the highways?
    make cars "know" the speed limit and not go faster than that. the cars would have sensors that detect the limit via satellite.
    Car Headlights [P0005]
    Countless car batteries have succumbed to the carelessness of car owners who leave their headlights on. What's the best way to tackle this problem?
    the cars will have a timer that after ten minites they would shut off

    Haircut subscription [S0014]
    "Curious Cat" likes Blockbuster's movie subscription idea, and argues that it might work for haircuts. What other regular services might you want to subscribe to?
    An.) I think it would be cool to have subscriptions to video game stores rather then just online stores. Mostly for the reason of it being easier to buy games directly from the store.
    Tracking things [S0020]
    "Idea Hamster" wants to see a Lojack for Children, a tracking device embedded into clothing that could help locate missing kids. What other things (or people) might you want to track in this way?
    An.) It would be handy to be able to track various vehicles such as boats, planes, cars, trains and the like for the use of say, tracking where your family member is at any moment. Rather then just having it used to track criminals.
