One of the narrators of the book I am re-reading has invented a clever device. He has a patent and everything-he's just looking for some start-up capital to build and distribute the item. It's a small machine made of a special light weight lead that whirrs softly. After a time, the whirring stops and it raises and waves a white flag. It is called a WNTTLFACIOMEO, which is an acronym for Why Not Try To Live For A Change Instead Of Murdering Each Other.
