    Man, the hours I could waste, or actually not waste...call it research.

    This page just lists some patents by celebrities, but it is awesome research fodder for the haunter. Check out Michael Jackson's patent for anti-gravity illusion shoes as used in his Smooth Criminal video and tour. Really cool stuff...I know I will definitely spend some time digging around in the Disney patents at some point.

    Here's the elevator patent from the Tower of Terror attraction, for example

    I saw on a TV show recently that Gene Simmons patented the term "OJ" when used to signify "orange juice".

    Been using it to research old ride patents for a friend doing a history book. Lots of fun.

    PS: it isnt so much the TOT since the special effects are outside of the elevator, but it is a precursor.
    The word for the day is NPD. Check it out.

    When my patent on the air everyone breathes takes effect I will be getting lots and lots of checks everyday..except from the real heavy smokers.
