Lost Story: Boy got screwed by family over his invention.

Radiate ๐Ÿšซ

As it says in the topic, the boy discovered some kind of ceramic conductor in high school and used his father in the patent. Then he got screwed by the whole family. Any help is appreciated.
Thank you.

Because you are in hell, and the line for the bathroom is 5 million people deep.

The main reason I don't eat corn is I don't trust anything that looks the same way coming out as it went in.

I never drank lager. I haven't had a drop of booze since 1980.

I need to eat the peas so I can grow big and strong. I am channelling Carl Buckman.

There is a game by GMT I play called Churchill the Struggle for Peace. By spelling Peace Peas I figured out why the British units are green. (The Russians are red since they are Communists and the USA are blue since they are true blue.) Since the Brits are struggling for peas they get green crushed peas on their units.

Brits are owls and pussycats and like to go to sea in boats.

owls and pussycats and like to go to sea in boats.

"The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.

The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are, you are, you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are."

Pussy said to the Owl "You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing.
O let us be married, too long we have tarried;
But what shall we do for a ring?"

They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows,
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose, his nose, his nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling your ring?"
Said the Piggy, "I will"
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.

They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon.
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand.
They danced by the light of the moon, the moon, the moon,
They danced by the light of the moon."

Thank you! I had forgotten the meaning of runcible and your post helped me remember it. ;)

Nowadays, a "runcible spoon" would be called a "spork"

"spork"

"The 1970 trademark for this handy invention labels it a "spork," and most agree this title is correct. But some silverware enthusiasts refuse, saying the tool should be called a "fopoon" instead." More often it is used with its tines to spear food like a fork, and "fo" for fork should start the word. Of course if you are eating pig, s-pork makes more sense. Even Sp-ham.

Now how would you name a spork with a cutting edge on one side, so it can be used as a knife? Obviously the cutting edge must be at least slightly blunt or hasty eaters might cut their mouth.

Why do the rich always use the fork upside down?

Why do the rich always use the fork upside down?

Hmm,
lets assume this is true.
When looking on the history of the fork, you will see it had originally 2โ€“3 straight prongs and was used to fixate the meat etc. while cutting pieces from it.
Because forks with only 2 or 3 straight prongs are awkward to use to bring smaller pieces or well cooked vegetables from the plate into the mouth, the diner had to take a spoon instead. To avoid permanently switching between fork (or knife) and spoon, the fork design was changed to more (usually 4) and flattened prongs with a bend. Now the diner could mostly use the fork instead of a spoon.
But for the original use of the fork he had to hold the fork upside down.

Now to your question:
the rich were the first to get their vegetables served 'al dente' and had to cut them into morsels. To do this they had to hold the fork upside down. Because the vegetables were 'al dente' they hadn't to rotate the fork to load the morsels on it, they could spear the morsels with the fork prongs, still in position upside down.
