IDEA: Reversible Window Blinds

Someone should make window blinds that are black on one side of the slat thingy (whatever they're called) and white on the other.  That way you could have the white side facing out in the summer to reflect as much light back out as possible, and in the winter let the black side absorb most of the light and give off heat.

    Would that really work? Sounds like a good idea…but who thinks of these things?? Oh yeah…YOU do! lol. You should work for a company that makes things more energy efficient; you seem to contemplate energy efficiency a lot.

    Or maybe you should just lay off the wine…

    Of course it would work!
    A job like that would be fun. I'm afraid that I'd run out of ideas very quickly though.. maybe I can figure out something to do along those lines anyway.

    Lay off the wine? Then you'd be doing drunken gymnastics all by yourself. 😛

    one who is full of ideas never runs out. That is the beauty of ideas, there is always an abundance of ideas when one brainstorms. If one is able to brainstorm, one is able to always generate ideas. There are many people who do not know how to brainstorm, or do not have the desire to brainstorm. But one who does know how to generate ideas, and enjoys it, will be always be able to create many many ideas.
