A frustrated baby boomer will invent a child-resistant cap that keeps toddlers out, yet allows adults easy access.

There was a time when the credo of the boomer generation was "Don't trust anyone over 30." Now long past 30, today's boomers still have an attitude about age. They're going to ignore it as long as possible. However, as boomers push 50 or 60 and begin taking more prescription drugs for chronic conditions and dietary to maintain or improve their health, it's only a matter of time before someone comes up with a concept that ends the struggle to open child-resistant containers.
