me and some people were told that if we swam across a big lake
we would be able to get free patents
on stuff. although i didn't have anything to patent i figured i'd come up with something
during the swim
. since i had swam the lake many times before (odd
, since in real life i'm quite afraid
of swimming) i decided to go for it.
i was about to dive
in head first, but recently someone had built up the bottom of the lake with decorative tile
and now the lake was only about 3 inches deep until about 20 feet out from shore
, where there was a sharp drop
off. we walked to the drop off dove in and started across. when we arrived at the other side, it appeared to be some sort of technology
show. i had not thought of anything to patent, and i didn't see how anything i could think of would compete with the stuff
i saw there. so i swam back across the lake.
