Why Didn't I Think of That? proves not all successful inventions are the greatest thing since sliced bread (not even sliced bread, which is literally just a precut loaf for lazy loafs). This humorous guide to "mind-blowing" inventions deconstructs just how complex these can't-live-without necessities really are, while providing some insightful(ly funny) lessons to future inventors, such as: -Yo-yos: Deadly weapons do make great kids' toys. -Soccer: Boredom is the stepmother of invention. -Bottled water: There is no such thing as a stupid idea.Complete with useful trivia-like the fact that 100 trillion paperclips have been sold-readers will be able to impress their friends by hardly trying.
