  • 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.
