The U.S. PeeTeeOh! is not supposed to make sense or actually identify inventions,
let alone properly check for novelty or prior art. The goal of the office
is to grant as many monopolies as possible in the smallest amount of time

US citizens need to protest and call the abolishment of the patent office
as it exists today. It drives away developers from the US, as I wrote just
