I don't see the harm in it.

Baking a pony for a friend because she's cute.

Is the friend cute or the pony? Either way, I see no problem.

Putting a headcrab in a blender and giving it to a professional athlete, under the guise of a protein smoothie.

Good idea. Knives are normal in UFC, right?

Eating a heaping bowl of salt.

Good idea. A common practice for the terminally depressed in ancient China, IIRC.

Chasing it with a bucket of paint.

hmmm....Netrual Idea, only because I don't know what "it" is. And "it" could turn around and bite you in the ass. Mixed with the paint.





Finding out what "it" is first.

Good idea. I'd say do it until the cows come home.








Grilling a whole cow. (Some individuals are doing just that btw, no joke.)

Well, I suppose good idea if you are 20 meters away locked in kevlar steel lined with concrete and have a tiny peephole covered with clear kevlar, then yes. Good idea.

Trying to escape a straight-jacket while hanged 100 ft in the air.

Pointless. If you mean what I think you mean by "hanging", you'll be dead already.

(I meant hanging upside-down)Ummm... Bad idea, I guess, if you mean the building. If you mean just the books, still a bad idea.


Shooting a S&W 500 with one hand.(If you don't know what that is, google it.)

Bad idea. A gun like that would have some serious recoil.

Great idea. But you would need a Librarian Life Guard, so that nobody drowns from reading too much.






Requiring Librarians to also be Barbarians as part of the job requirment.

Good idea. Threatening people with swords and axes is a good way to keep them quiet.

Really Bad Idea. The explosion may propel you further than the ramp alone, but it will also incinerate you.

Second-person shooters.

Bad idea. It smells terrible.

@Darth Vada: You'd see from the point of view of whatever you're shooting.

Passable idea, but it would be bad if the average Mac user knew the computer wasn't supposed to do that.

Making a combat free JRPG.

Bad idea. Is there any actual choice involved at all then?

@Hal: With my idea, it is supposed to do that.

Insane idea. You'd be seeing time.

Bad idea for apple, those who tend to to keep up with the new trend, are left behind in the end.

Using a hard to find "AC flyback transformer" on the power supply for a "home made plasma globe". (trust me search relevant terms and you probably will find your answer fairly easy, hint "Greg's")

Anything involving a home made plasma globe is a really bad idea.

Good and bad, maybe even simultaneously.

Spending your afternoons near a liberal university fleecing students of their drinking money by pretending to be a filthy homeless beggar and then finishing the evening off at your local watering hole laughing w/your friends at their gullibility.

Could be good, could be bad. The hammer could swing either way on this. What I'm definitively gonna say is good or bad, it sure is an awesome idea.

Shaving...Mr. Bean style...while your face is like that of a matted frizzled filthy wookiee.

neutral idea; it'd be bad for people inside the house, but no one would see that coming.

@Alkonium: Nope, I don't get the reference.

Bad idea. Any technology that can mess directly with people's minds is too inherently dangerous.

@Ferc: Look up "Cave Johnson Lemon Rant" on Youtube

Batteries that can be recharged in the microwave.
