Neutral: I suppose it could have good uses, but I can't think of any off hand because that isn't typically something I'd do if I wanted my creations to survive.


Using part of a defunct ionic pro's outer casing (the part with a curvature) as a star wars-y original face mask--the front of it anyways...

Good idea. Could fit up with the aesthetic style of Star Wars very well.

Taking a brief clip of Ryan Gosling driving, making a 2 hour loop of it, and passing it off as the movie Drive on The Pirate Bay.

Good idea: The pissed off feedback comments alone are worth it.

Taking the waste product of white lightning (a.k.a. Moonshine--people who know better don't call it that!) production process, and using it as an ultra-volatile fuel and present it as a recycling solution and an energy solution to shut up the American Green Party.
Note: The same people who like to go north, record glaciers melting in the summertime only to propagandize it with "ZOMG polar icecaps melting--enact da policiez!!!!!11!!1~!!". (Of which a Canadian YouTuber has made me aware! )

Good idea, if it did what you promised and it was ultra-volatile.

Telling Christians that you hit yourself in the foot with a shovel for their mortgage.

Bad idea: they may decide that's worth the tradeoff.

Making a politician chip maker, basically it's just like a treechipper but meant for grinding and eating politicians up and spitting them out in chips. Works on corporate monopolists and oligarchs who don't want competition as well.

Sure....you can help me stuff ole Georgie boy in first.

Telling your gullible girlfriend that she didn't actually catch you cheating.....she was just having another vivid sleep walking dream.

Bad idea. How do you think she'd respond to "You were dreaming about me cheating on you?", even if she believed it?

Actually making your girlfriend dream about you cheating on her.

Good idea: her behavior will at least be predictably insecure and jealous.

The next time your son calls on the phone about the weather and says something about the town "getting 10 inches tonight", telling him "So's your mom".

Putting a creeper inside a house made of TNT in the middle of a town in Minecraft.

I already have heard it. Not just from my dad. Friends have said it too. My boss at my auto mechanic job is also a grumpy smartass who has said similar stuff. Probably rubbing off on me. Apparently it's a trollface meme now.

Scratching your junk because "He who loves, lost, is just another hand in the bush".

Excellent idea. I think I've heard of that before. Someone dud it essentially to make a wineholder transformers figure.


A news channel with the crazy "I'd buy THAT for a dollar!" guy as the anchor. (It's a reference to the "dirty dave" show iirc in the reality of Robocop movies.)

Good idea if the real estate market just bottomed out, if not, the saying "you get what you paid for" comes to mind...

Becoming the world's best assassin and retaining your anonymity till dying in your sleep of natural causes at a ripe old age long in the future.

Would probably be more interesting to OWS types that hate "the 1%". (though that mifght change depending on how it's carried out... think George Carlin's bit on capital punishment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJb3aUwcX-Q)

Having the strength of a million people and the fine motor control not to crush things that you didn't intend to.

Good idea. Shows people you mean business (or that you're a pirate).

Attempting to make a Nether Portal IRL.

That would certainly be one way to engage in city beutification projects.

Taking people too literally.
(Looked it up, cause I took your suggestion too literally. Only read a few of the Dune books years ago. A modern day butlerian jihad would be problematic at best.)

A very messy idea. Don't ask me to be your second.

Executions via chainsaw and on pay-per-view no less.

Terrible idea. Don't make people pay to get in on the action.

A chainsaw gun with a chainsaw bayonet that fires explosive chainsaw bullets.

Impractical idea: I'm sure it's do-able, but the sheer mass and size for something like that even with today's technology would make an end product that isn't exactly portable, and for the performance you'd get out of it for the size I estimate the more modern stuff would outperform it.

Making some strawberry vanilla jam or cherry lemon jam as an alternative to putting butter on your toast (mold the milk culture bread!) since you're lactose intolerant.

Bad idea, it's creepy if you can't tell who's participating and gross if you can.

Telling Te Melanin Man o' War 1) that you thought he was dead and 2) you remember his original name.

Bad idea. Most people just ain't pretty enough for that kind of thing.

Pirating the Mac OS, and installing it on a PC.

Neutral-good: I believe there are already cases of that--good if you could get a well made copy/emulation of a current one I guess. I think you can just get legit older ones that have become freeware. I grew up on Mac actually. Other than multimedia though, why would you want Mac???

Being a bloody tampon for Halloween.
