This is a question Spoilt Brats

Mr Newton sighs, "ever known anyone so spoilt you would love to strangle? I lived with a Paris Hilton-a-like who complained about everything, stomped her feet and whinged till she got her way. There was a happy ending though: she had to drop out of uni due to becoming pregnant after a one night stand..."

Who's the spoiltest person you've met? Has karma come to bite them yet? Or did you in fact end up strangling them? Uncle B3ta (and the serious crimes squad) wants to know.

Sound proof helmets
I invented this thing I wanted to take on Dragons Den - it is like a lightweight motorbike helmet, but in transparent plastic. It is also completely soundproof - so if your child starts screaming you just pop it on their head until they shut up.

It serves a dual purposes of preventing unpleasant noise pollution, and acting as a deterrent to further misbehaviour.

Every time I have tried to get buy-in from parents they have said it is outrageous and immoral. Can any parents tell me why? You can see their face, you'd know if they were actually dying, I can't see the problem.

Click "I like this" if you are a fat lonely loser with bits in your teeth.

I think if you combine it with PMGT's idea and have an inbuilt cattle prod, you could be onto something.

You could make it double skinned
with a water filled section that you can populate with Goldfish. This way it would be both sound proof and relaxing to watch.

There is one down side to your invention though, what if the child sneezes inside? Nothing more revolting than a helmet full of snot, so maybe a reactor light style darkening effect inner visor to hide the snot?

So, if it's completely soundproof,
it would also have to be airtight?

I'm liking the sound (gah!) of this.

I suppose there could be some kind of valve. You could add and take away air supply depending on the behaviour of the child.

Although the human rights brigade would probably kick up a stink about oxygen deprivation.

I'm sure it will...
Just look out for that pooflake character going around stealing the best ideas and patenting 'em ;)
