I had a lego separator in the early 90s, but I didn't know what it was 'til years later so I never used it.

Same. I used the good ol' "Mooooooooooom!" method.

Lego separator worked very well, like 100 percent success rate for small bricks.

Nowadays most big boxes come with a separator and if anything you end up with more than you know what to do with.

A goon over in the LEGO thread in DIY said he uses all his extras as beer bottle openers, and I think that’s a good idea.

I swear on my mom and my cats' ashes that I am not making this up.

I am 46 years old, meaning I was reaching peak LEGO in the early-mid 80's. My grandpa was big on writing letters to companies (both complaints and complements), and I followed suit when he showed me how to use a typewriter. I wrote to LEGO USA in Enfield, CT a few times, and one was to say "y'know, you should make some sort of tool to get the stuck LEGO apart! I use the thin end of the wrench that comes with some of the figures."

I got a nice personally signed letter back from their rep, Susan... crap, can't remember her last name. I have her letters in a box somewhere. Anyways, her response was essentially "that's so creative, and a great idea [lil' JD]! We'll take that into consideration!"

Years later, my nephew is a Legomaniac and he whips out this thingy that separates bricks. While happy for LEGO enthusiasts everywhere, I can't help but think I just lost a fortune because I didn't have the wherewithal to patent this idea when I was, like 9 years old.

edit: As is usually the case, I remembered Susan's last name sometime in the wee hours of the morning. Well goddamn, now I'm even more crushed. According to this 1981 article, Susan Williams is not a real person.

I sent Nintendo a letter saying they should make a camera cartridge for N64 like the Gameboy Camera. They sent me a nice letter back. It probably said thank you but we can't take ideas from fans. Years later I figured that having a camera tied to a console would have been absurd. A few years later Microsoft made the Kinect.

I guess I was vindicated on both counts.
