Decent idea. They vision would actually be a downgrade for me, but the flashlight bit might be useful.

Have an artificial nose that was actually a Geiger counter but didn't replicate your sense of smell.

Good idea. Gotta have *somewhere* to put all those dead bodies.

Playing Frisbee with hubcaps, trashcan lids and old china.

Great idea, don't forget the large deepdish pizza pans as well.






Attaching a stick of dynamite to those makeshift frisbees, light the fuse, and play a frisbee russian roulette version with one another.

Bad idea. What if you miss and take out an innocent bystander?

BioWare replacing Jennifer Hale with the worst voice actress in Canada for Mass Effect 3.

Hilarious idea: she *must* be horrible because all my search engines just had errors when looking up the query "Canada's worst voice actress".

Beating a dead horse in every sense of the term.

Bad idea. That is both necrophilia and bestiality.

EA declaring all who do not use their Origin service "evil", and changing its logo to this:

Bad idea: Egotistical moves are often knocked by fans in the real world, and hard. At least if I know you anything as well as I think I do, Alk.

Bombarding rival colleges, covertly, with explosive urinals to boost the status of your own college.

Bad idea, if you want your college to get a better reputation, make something positive and not "At least our washrooms won't kill you."

Talking UBC chemical engineering students into following their mechanical friends annual pranks, only using bombs instead of cars.

Good idea: the "microsoft sucks" crowd will be your best customers and they pay quite well. Also it'd make crashing some buttmunch's computer a snap since you won't have to write your own virus program.

Show spoiler


Buying a Spyder-3 1 watt blue laser for its sleek lightsaber-ish looks (on top of all the other benefits that come with owning a device that can output 1 watt of coherent optical power).

Superb idea, just make sure you don't use him as a future reference.

Bad idea: never underestimate a government's penchant for petiness or spite, nor its incompetence for regular tasks with total and blatant disregard for other people.

Unsure Idea. You might just piss them off and they could morph into crabs (and I don't mean like the seakind either). Then it would suck to be you.

Bad idea. That's a lot of collateral damage.

On your resumé, claiming that all your previous employers went bankrupt, or went under for other reasons, and that's why you don't work for them anymore.

Good idea, unless you work in the finance/accounting side of things or your prospective employer known for being superstitious.

On your resumé, claiming to have revolutionised the apiary industry, when applying to an IT gig.

It's not his managerial skills, it's the fact that no one will be happy to have been replaced by a guy with one day on the job.

Neutral idea. It's not relevant to the job, but it couldn't hurt.

Re-enacting every episode of Epic Meal Time with all the right ingredients, and then eating it all in one sitting.

Neutral: first off it isn't necessarily good to lie on a resume but if you speak the truth then I suppose it's okay to add, second it depends on what the employer is looking for outside IT skills.

Calling Colgate consumer affairs because their toothpaste "made you feel like a piece of $#*%".And not expecting results.

A grand theft auto radio commercial idea: "accidents happen and we'll prove it". (for reals it was in one of those games)

Allowing and enabling Hallucination to use a jackhammer on the head of some guy who, instead of getting a shopping cart at the front of a grocery store, decides to yank it away from a little kid who was watching it for its mom for just a moment while she was digging through her purse for the shopping list.

Excellent idea. I just wish I had the kind of money and power to be able to do that to the particular comanies I'm thinking of.

Making the last level of a 16-bit video game you produced after the song "Jack the world" by the band Gwar. (Refer to a recent post of mine in ahto, if you really care to see what I'm talking about. )

Good Idea. Your significant other just might take the hint when it becomes obvious you don't care what that person does contrary to the relationship, since you don't care either. Finding quality dates are hard enough anyways.

Great Idea: Being tipsy makes things a little more amusing that way. Plus you might get laid which I would hope is a good thing. (Let's try to keep it in a positive context! PLEASE!)

(Glad you approve!)

Neutral: While I wholeheartedly endorse a risque successor where XBL is now a place for you avartar's (ahem) interactions, that would tend to limit the audience it can reach to the age of consent demographic. Alienating customers is never good for business.

Installing dummy buttons on elevators, thermostats, and controls of public appliances and devices to give the illusion that people still control things when in reality it's all on timers.
