I ripped a tooth out the other day and was rewarded with $1. I was asked if I wanted to spend it at the shops or take it to the school canteen where I might get a better return. I answered, "I want to put it in the bank so when I am an adult I won't have to work".
It got me to thinking of other ways I could make money.
You could kick off an entry level enterprise by selling fruit and jelly for $1, tattoos for $3 or sausage sizzles for $5.
To really ramp things up I think I might focus instead on selling nails for $10, Chillis for $30 and plans or haircuts for $50.
My brother wanted to get inked so here is my first tattoo.
I am still waiting on the remuneration. I think it is time to start on that next tooth.
In this invention I have combined two of my great loves, Camping and Mid-Air Suspension. This is my first prototype of a Suspended Tent.
The Suspended Tent comes complete with a frilled eiderdown. The tent itself sits nestled beneath a matching A-Framed support which holds up and perfectly balances the campsite.
I like to make stuff. After a 50 hour black out I used one of the remaining light sources to illuminate this DIY Shadow Torch. It enables me to convey emotions when words are not enough.
I made this quill out of a toothpick, tissue and a rubber band. I paint the end with a texta pen when I want to write or draw with it.
You might ask why?
The idea came to me and I set about to build and test my design.
I got bitten the other night by insects. It got me to thinking. If I had 22 arms I would be able to scratch all of the bites at the same time.
There are six people in my family. We use a lot of toilet paper. I used our surplus toilet paper rolls to design and build a Rabbit. The tape was left over after my Sticky Tape Shoes invention.
My hands are small. I learned how to fold paper aeroplanes from a book. This is a tiny plane. complete with tail.
I am Xan. I started this site when I was six. I want to record my ideas before it is too late. Before I conform to the prevailing expectations of the herd.
