The Fat Bank

I’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve said “only in America”, only to see an idea thriving on these shores soon after. With that in mind, I bring you The Fat Bank.

Picture the scene; you’ve just had your liposuction and sitting (looking pretty gruesome) in a jar alongside you, is the fat they’ve just sucked out of your flabby midriff. You might be thinking that it needs flushing down the drain…but no! What you should be doing with it is depositing it in the Fat Bank so that when your face starts to sag in ten years time, you can withdraw it and have it pumped into your wrinkles. Well believe it or not, that’s what’s happening in California.

How long before the first fat bank is started here? I don’t know, but whoever does it will get a huge slug of  free publicity to get things moving. Perhaps something to think about for someone with the right background and contacts.

Wedding Broker

I was speaking to someone recently who is planning a wedding. It seems like it’s a two year process these days. A lot can happen in two years which probably explains the need for US based Bridal Brokerage.

Over 250,000 weddings are called off each year in the United States. What Bridal Brokerage does is resell the wedding to a new couple, enabling the original betrothed to recover deposits and up-front costs, hassle free. Venues and service providers enjoy uninterrupted business and wedding buyers get a pre-planned wedding at a fraction of the regular cost.

I don’t have the figures for cancelled UK weddings, but based on the US figures, it’s probably around 50,000. That’s seems like plenty to make a similar service viable here. Definitely something worth investigating. Start up costs would be minimal, but the middle man profits could be very attractive.
