  • The person who can invent delicious restaurant French fries that become re-crispy when you heat up the leftovers the next day.

  • The person who convinces Amazon.com to sell new cars.

  • The person who creates a mirror system that lets drivers know when their headlights are calibrated incorrectly by blinding them the way they blind me.

  • The person who convinces the US Postal Service to license the UPS package tracking system.

  • The person who convinces CNN.com to post written versions of all their video stories.

  • The person who invents auto-pilot lane-merging for cars.

  • The person who can replace dentists with home remedies.

  • The person who invents a bed or couch with a hole in it so your arm can go somewhere when you are spooning.

  • The person who invents a DVD player that can skip unskippable content.
  • Who's on your list?
