Good idea, the suspension is sooooo worth it. Wow, never would have suspected an intellectual (ok maybe not a total intellectual, but compared with several people I know, you are) of wanting to do this.

Good idea. That seems safe enough.

Attempting to brew mead without any of the proper equipment, and resorting to stuff you'd find in a standard kitchen.

Good idea: bah who needs all that fancy stuff when you can just make due? And even if it turns out tasting crap-ish, you can still say you tried your best with what was available to you. *friends' faces turning green as they choke and lay on the floor dying*


Bungee jumping like so: "What is a juggalo? A F___in' lunatic. Somebody with a rope tied to his ____, and then he jumps out a 10 story window."

Bad idea. There's a reason regular ropes aren't used for bungee jumping.

Sabotaging your business's competitors, and then bragging about it to your boss.

Given what I could find out in a heartbeat and a couple of quick searches...Good Idea if you wish to put a twist in The Winds of Winter with some ill-equipped, (perhaps unfairly) not well-liked character. Sounds like it'd be interesting anyways.
(......forgive me but search results lead me in so many different directions at once......)


Making up your own horror villain and hiring him for protection because you're sick of fighting Jason, Freddy, Mike Myers, Chuckie, Leatherface, Hellraiser, Candyman, etc.

Bad idea. You'll just end up with one more to fight.

Having sex with your dead friend's girlfriend, on top of said friend's grave.

That one could go either way for too many reasons to mention.

Doing his mom on his grave and then telling everyone you were Dath and that they should move along b/c there was nothing to see.

Good idea, if you happen to live in a comic book.

Loudly talking to yourself while walking around any major city.

Good Idea: I'm sure someone would try it if they seriously thought it'd make them some money.

Ridding yourself of lice and crabs (logic behind it, they're "bugs") by sticking relevant bodyparts into an electric bug zapper and jolting them away to save time, money, and hassle.

Bad idea. Depending on wattage, you could damage nerves, or die.

At a job interview, offering to sell your past employer's secrets to your prospective employer.

Bad Idea: Even if that information could help you get employed, your prospective employer already knows you're at least as likely to pull something like that on him.

Having tube driven electronics see you through a nuclear war blast's electromagnetic shockwave.

Good idea, but you're stick with tube-driven electronics.

Protecting your house/castle in Minecraft with autoturrets (dispenser loaded with arrows and linked via redstone to a nearby pressure plate) and landmine (pressure plate on top of TNT).

Bad idea, I'm not sure having to fix your lawn because a cat walked across it and blew the whole thing to smithereens is fun.

Protecting your house/castle in Minecraft by dating in real life.

Excellent idea, its complexity will result in people being much more careful and thus reduce the number of accidents. It might encourage crime, but that's not too important.

Allowing inmates sentenced to death to only walk sideways because they have nothing to look forward to.

Pointless, they're going to die anyway, it doesn't really matter how they feel about it.

Bad idea: you get lots of people who come to the gig, and nobody wanting to do jack squat or having any valuable skills. I worked in amateur TV production myself so I've seen the horrors.

Finding the spammer IRL who makes your online life miserable and beating the holy F***ing $#*% out of him, and then give him the same treatment Big Baby Sweets says you could give Li'l Poot and Big Stank and still wouldn't care about.

Good idea: the boss will be pissed off so that not only do you NOT get the day off, you'll have to clean up the mess and maybe even pay to replace the equipment. Stellar plan chief.

Investing in an oak stake even though you have cleared the 5th mansion on Castlevania 2.

Assuming the first "an" should be "in", Good idea. Who knows when you might need one?

Manipulating time so that MLP started in 2010 with the Friendship is Magic series, and none of the pre-2010 crap existed.

Good idea I suppose, if nothing else you could (hopefully) be possibly saving the series from deterioration (I wouldn't know). Knock yourself out.


Using dremel or other rotary tools to smooth out the sharp insides of the sheet metal computer casing before adding to and modifying your machine.
An hour later and it's STILL bleeding under bandages... >_>

Bad idea. Odds are something won't fit right afterwards.

Attempting to eliminate your need for sleep in the same way you would build up immunity to a poison.

Bad idea: One cannot build an immunity to sleep as to poison; It will ultimately fail and bring about many ills in the process.
I think I'm finally getting the hang of concise wording on the internet!

Buying a fixer-upper home right now while prices are low and individual job prospects are in one's personal favor atm.

Instead of buying a car, building one out of a random assortment of parts you found at a junkyard.

If you've got the time and talent and the means...........why not. Might even get a break on the insurance.

Giving up your US citizenship and then coming back to exploit the sytem as an illegal alien.

Good Idea. You might actually get some assistance.

Making nothing in hopes someone won't rule 34 or rule 35 that. Or making your own rule 34 of it really crappily and obscure so that nobody will take an interest.
