How about a rodent NASCAR? It would be a rat race.
It would be easy to corner them, they can only turn left.

The jokes are too cheesy.

I met a guy from HP once who said they had custom shirts made with bigger pockets because they couldn't quite meet the design objective.

I saw a hoodie with a laptop option. The pouch had "swing out" arms to hold it. You could walk into a building or a train or a subway car without having to look up.

Anybody else think there's a market for a proximity alert app?

I’d never seen the TRS-80 pocket computer, and I got all excited before I realized it didn’t actually have a Z80 processor.  Oh well.
