Automated dog tug of war
Dogs are willing to invest a lot of energy in tug of war. I wonder whether it's possible to get it started, and then leave the dog to it, to save the ower the effort (and perhaps generate energy at the same time). In a non-energy generating solution, all that would be needed is a bungy rope (as used for bungy jumping) and then a length of dog-proof rope on the end. Once the owner initiates the dog's interest, the bungy would (hopefully) sustain it by pulling back. An energy generating derivative would perhaps use the same concept, but also attach the rope to a chain driven energy-generating flywheel (like a rowing machine).
If you get the sense from reading this blog that I like to think, and you believe that my kind of thinking might be useful to you or your organisation, please get in touch. I offer free consultancy for startups, delivered via email and instant messaging.
This blog is a hotchpotch of my thoughts, opinions, reviews, analysis of idioms, and links to articles that I have come across on my travels.
I would like to write a comprehensive philosophy or metareligion, but I haven't got the motivation. Likewise, I would like to write a book analysing sayings, idioms, phrases, quotes etc.
