Cocktail typewriter makes any word a drink

(CBS) - It sure does get thirsty sitting at a desk all day typing. You know how writers are. Especially journalists. So this is great news for all you aspiring journalism school students out there: by the time you hit the workforce, typewriters like the one you see above will be the de facto writing tool in the newsroom. Because, honestly, who wants to stand up to go get a cocktail?

All joking aside, this is an incredibly complex and clever creation. The inventor, who goes by Morskoiboy, has a detailed explanation of the typewriter on his blog HERE. Read it, memorize it, make your own, and get started on your memoirs. Maybe bring some pretzels too.
