Elderly Car Guide "Granny Car Glide"
Transporting elderly individuals frequently can cause headaches as you balance them into and out an automobile. The Granny Car Glide aides this process by creating a comforted buffer between a standing and seated position. In a thin housing hung behind the passenger seat, the support easily slides in and out for convenience. Once extended, simply contracting the aluminum, plastic and foam-cored layering and affixing the support 'strap' takes mere seconds. The entire unit is then supported further by the solid 'strap' making contact with the edge of the automobile door frame.


Every Ten Days (Countdown #1)
Frequent visitors to tvmiller.com are familiar with our vast array of creative elements ranging from entertainment to engineering to literature detesting insignificant human events with a teaspoon of colorful linguistics laced with a dash of racial character assassination...and despite volume, consistency remains our vice.

Upon the heels (again) of our previously successful 6 Bulls#@t Designs in 6 Days and the subsequent sequel 5+4 More Moist Dung-esk Inventions, we are instituting an internalized challenge to create and publish something/anything relative to any of the existing categories; every 10 days.

Every 10 days we will post a countdown clock front and center and we welcome you to hold us to it. If it passes, scorn us. Throw fecal matter. Whatever you feel is appropriate -- note that I will berate/beat the hell out of you...a commitment you must as well embrace for the evolution of our kind.

Lottery Logic
Let us theorize for a moment that the lottery apparatus was a means of distributive wealth amongst players (laboring occupants) rather than solely a municipality diatribe. If this were in fact true, the payout dynamics would be drastically different than what they are. Here, we will examine the alternatives with greater societal application as resolution. Our inquiry vehicle is the Powerball lottery.

Purchasing a Powerball lottery ticket for $1.00(US) will garner the following payouts, odds and percentages of a base 15 million dollar jackpot:


43 million dollars of a collected 146 million is placed into the prize pool to cover all payouts including the 15 million jackpot. This is a 0.30 to 1.00 return with the disparity (103 million) held to governing applications. Average playership is 3.9 million with a 97.27% probability of a losing number combination. 2.7% will earn equal to or less than $100 each of the non-jackpot 28 million. The remaining 0.03% will earn $10,000 or more, up to and including the jackpot.

The core to perceive is that 105,300 winning players will earn trivial amounts, not including those with non-awarded winning combinations selected.

What if...the 15 million + 28 million were more diversely distributed? The logic applied is the common 'why?' purposed when a winner achieves some irrational prize claim:

Is it without question that a populace would wholly agree that larger payouts for diminutive combinations would increase playership which constitutes greater volumes of distribution. Additionally, with a greater payout across the board, more value can be absorbed from government payouts (0.30:1.00) and taxed via prize expenditures.

This entire scenario is only applicable with an additional resolution to another cockeyed 'why?'. Income taxes for large sum lottery winners ($5,000 or more) can result in losses of 28 to 47% of payout. The irrationality is that purchasing a lottery ticket 'donates' (regressive tax) 70 cents to the dollar already. Canada, Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy and the United Kingdom are tax free. For our example, we visit the country of Logica.

Taking from the core 15/28, we can reduce the jackpot to 1 million, adding 14 million to the 28 (42). Carry over from curtailed winners of averaged pooling still applies, though retains percentage distribution across the board. The following spreadsheet demonstrates variations on the 30% model, 50% and 25% carry over.
Professional Wrestling Promo Video (Thrice Edition)
We impurely re-edited the now 3-year-old professional wrestling promotional video (Deuce Cut) down to a minute thirty and unfortunately was only capable of adding a single more recent clip from FSPW South. It's not great nor horrible, but patently not great. Either way, book Tv Miller. (mvt@tvmiller.com)



PCE Theft?
Roughly 40 days ago we announced the /TVMI.PCE project and requisites for supplies. Yesterday morning, we were beguiled by a news story featuring a very familiar premise, slightly a-skewed.

Link: NY Daily News "Artist Divides 5th Avenue"

The question poised is simple. Is this creative theft and must we enforce the 'Disclaimer'? Several characteristics are different. These 'artists' imposed no directional division and segregated based on hypothetical bigoted prepositions. The core is unequivocally a facsimile. Learn about the specific key differences in function and utility on the specified page.

Unfortunately, they cannot confirm or deny such accusations without a discourse. Here, I extend an olive branch and propose a more defined collaborative venture. If you are responsible for this mediocre theatrics, contact me at mvt@tvmiller.com.
