My coworker bought an LCD "Inspection Camera" that I'm calling a Camera on a Cable. It's supposed to be good for jamming down into a clogged pipe and seeing what's the matter.
It's got a camera on the end of a three foot-long cable. There's also a light by the camera, and the light is adjusted at the handle.
It's also got a nice little LCD screen. It's so fancy that you can almost make out what the camera is pointing at. We were never able to get it to focus, but that didn't stop us from trying to stick it anywhere it would fit.
And by "anywhere" I really mean "anywhere." The first thing we thought of doing was our own colonoscopy. It's never too early to get one of those, you know.
So my new side job is to give people colonoscopies. I don't think you need a doctorate for that... all I think you need is a camera on a cable, lots of lube, and a cute, trusting face.
