  42. 42. How can I get gum out of my hair?How do you remove a lightbulb that is stuck… I WISH there was a remote that you could use on people. That way when you don't want to hear them you can press mute, or if they did something you like you could make them do it again by pressing rewind. I WISH someone would invent a stand for a hairdryer so that both hands could be left free for styling. I WISH there was a jet-propelled pack that would strap on to your back that would not run out of fuel to quickly and could go the speed of a small plane. It wouldn't be to heavy and it would be in my price range.
