Gross idea.

Just wearing an eye patch for Halloween, along with your regular clothes.

Boring idea. There are plenty of people who do that already, on other days besides Halloween.





Carrying around a portable battery operated vacuum, dress up like a bandit or pirate, and go around and suck up everybody's candy on Halloween.


Cop: Just what the hell you thinking your doin', buddy?!

Me: Hey! It's Halloween and I'm in character! So leave me alone!

Excellent idea. I'm tired of bag snatching.

@ ALK Boring idea.

(synchronous post victim)

BTW someone actually did that last year at the Lake Tahoe Freaker's ball.

Being a juggalo for regular everyday living sorta like a goth does.

Bad idea. That's a few steps away from a clown.

Responding to Jehovah's Witnesses with "Cthulhu R'lyeh Fthaghn!"

Excellent idea. Right up there with "quoting Lorem Ipsum in a deep, raspy voice while rolling your eyes around inside your head."

Greeting Jehovah's witnesses naked at the door, cow heart in hand.

Great idea, if you don't mind being charged with indecent exposure.

Greeting Jehovah's Witnesses with a fake (or real, I don't care) severed head in your hand.

Giving Jehovah's Witnesses your own pamphlets.

Bad idea. At the very least, most people would label that attempted homicide.

Greeting Jehovah's Witnesses by dressing up like Jesus, and saying, "Oh, great. It's you guys again."

Horrendous idea: if you don't get their scorn, ire and possibly violent reaction to your mockery, you'll get unwanted attention. Trust me, I tried it thinking it would be funny and it backfired every time.

Greeting a collective, mourning over their "beloved" who spoke his last words of his return as an undeniably strong presence, as the almighty Cornholio.

Probably a bad idea, unless you read it in an engaging way (low attention spans and whatnot). Upside is that most of them won't be able to tell their parents about your odd story choices for a pre-K crowd.

Acting out any of those stories in playform in HS, instead of the usual run-of-the-mill crap they do anymore.

Good idea: I'm sick of all the tired worn out half-assed attempts at classics which really deserve more dignity and respect with a properly done play...and the whole pop culture "thing" masquerading as "contemporary", but is really just MTV after they took all the cool stuff away.

Passing out chocolate laxatives in your kindergarten class for some variety to "stir things up a bit" w.r.t. the wackiness that will ensue.

Radio stations having no dress code of any kind.

Neutral: It's a radio station and it isn't like you can see them unless they have a webcam on or you are there in person at the station. Good if the DJ is hot; bad to horrible if they're not.


If winning a lottery, buying a Mitsubishi machining laser and opening up shop for comparatively cheap (*after* taxes are taken out on winnings).

Difficult to say. It's unclear what you mean by "opening up shop".

Dressing up as the Grim Reaper and hanging around at funerals.

Good idea if only there were a need for such a team.

@ Alk: You're overthinking it. Laser machining + shop. Even you know I give suggestions and reviews on tools every so often.

Getting fired for doing the boss' mother at the job site so that way when you look for a new job, the prospective employer will think the other guy is nuts.

Pretty sick. As if the original cast weren't sucky enough.

Making a CGI KOTOR mini-series that's faithful to the game (but with much better graphics, of course).

Bad idea. I can think of a few people here who'd be willing to torch the studio because it doesn't feature "their" Revan.

Making frequent use of the phrase "whether you like it or not" when dealing with fans.

Good idea to a point: after awhile even the more lenient fans are going to get the impression you just don't care what they think.

Good idea. It good to diversify one's menagerie of sea creatures with lasers attached to their heads.

Training bears to use guns, and then smuggling them onto a plane.

Good or bad idea depending on your perspective...and to whom it is about to happen...

Stopping a Darwin award from happening to someone the world desperately needs it happening to...

Mixed. Not everyone has common sense, but then again it would make for a robust season of Darwin awards. $50 on the idiot with the appliance by the bathtub, thanks.

Legally having a show called The Darwin Awards, complete with voluntary contestants.

Neutral idea: Hey, it's working for the hot pizza vending machine (no seriously, there *is* one), and trying it would yield mixed results upon which we could only improve...but the catch 22 is technology would be replacing jobs in both in the short and long term and we kinda need jobs right now to keep the economy moving, furthermore jobs for building and maintaining this stuff would be hard to come by and even harder to keep.


Stop eating animals, and start cannibalizing humans instead, in the interest of shutting PETA up.

Well, as long as shutting people up means we're canabalizing PETA, ALF, ELF, vegans, Greenpeace, Code Pink et al first........sure, why not. Maybe by the time we finish all them off, we can go back to eating non-human animals again.

Force feeding animals to PETA members.

Good idea. A vegetarian diet is a luxury. Besides, we were given opposeable thumbs and canines for a reason! Plus we don't want food totalitarianism enforced by people who are more or less the equivalent of militant religious zealots but about food instead.

Arm pit smelling and flavored Popsicle made from the real thing for PETA people and telling them, "Well, at least it isn't animals!"
