Water helps when it's in the form of rain; otherwise it's not a convenient option when you have 50,070 acres of forest simultaneously burning (like it's happening in the Virginia Lake Complex in Washington state now).
Flames have burned more than 600,000 acres in ten US states, with over 22,000 firefighters working to contain them... they are struggling so much, their only hope is in the weather forecast!
Now, this is why I hope to invent something better

I'd invent something that makes you feel like you've had a good night's sleep even if you haven't.

I wouls invent a pill or something that you could take so that you wouldnt need any sleep ever.
And another pill so that you could eat enough at one sitting to last for a few days(so you wouldnt be hungry for another few days).

Half the joy of food is the way it tastes! That is, if it tastes good.... Maybe just a pill that makes all food taste like ribs at Ruby Tuesday's.
 
This will take every ounce of my mental strength! All for a tiny ad:
