Is your idea too crazy to work? So crazy it might work? Perfect.

Create super hobos? Elaborate. Invisible spiders? Why not? There are no wrong ideas!

Rules
  1. Don't be a dick

  2. Submit original, interesting ideas. Sense, rationality, possibility and ethics are for sissies.

  3. If the entire purpose of the idea is the setup for a pun, it doesn't belong here.

3.1. As a rule of thumb, if your idea ends in "call it ___", it's probably a bad idea.

3.2. If an idea stands on its own as an interesting, crazy idea without the pun, submit it. Add the pun in the comments or maybe in the description if you really want to.

  • Posts shouldn't be for the sole purpose of complaining about a certain thing rather than add an alternative.

  • 4.1. Examples are "vote for Donald Trump" or "shut down Fox News". It's not a crazy idea, it's just being annoying.

    4.2. This goes for everything of the sort. No political bias here (we hope).

  • Please keep the circle jerk politics post to a minimum.

  • Some ideas are definitely more common than others. Use the search bar to see if it's been done before.

  • 6.1. "Hold a special Olympics where everyone takes drugs!"

    6.2. "Put all prisoners/politicians in an arena and make them fight to the death!"

    6.3. Literally anything to do with April Fools Day. If it involves April 1st, chances are you can remove the April 1st bit and it'd be just as valid.

    6.4. "For just one day, swap these two subreddits!"

  • Tag NSFW posts.

  • NOTE:

    Awesome ideas are just as welcome here as well. Anything is possible, anything you think about can work in your imagination. So don't comment saying "this belongs in /r/AwesomeIdeas!", we love you and accept you.

    25th birthday coming up, what crazy things can I do?

    Hey, as the title says, I'll be turning 25 in a couple of days! Mixed feelings about it, but also excited xD.

    I currently live in the USA and I'm looking to do something super fun and adventurous like SKYDIVING or something similar??!! Birthday falls during the weekend, so I'm up for traveling anywhere within the States.

    Do you guys have suggestions on what I could potentially do for my birthday??! I'm an adventurous person and I would love to do something crazy, bucket list types!

    Automatic Ironing Machine for household use

    Dear people of Reddit,

    Please take a moment for a survey about the innovation and application of the Automatic Ironing Machine intended for household use. The survey has 28 short questions. The survey is intended for everyone who may have benefit from such a machine. I will be grateful for any participation and sharing.

    Hybrid coil gun / ion wind aircraft

    A three phase linear induction pump (aka a coil gun) can move any electricly conductive substance.

    One type of electricly conductive substance is ionized air.

    This crazy idea is to use an ion wind device to create a small amount of moving electrically charged air, and surround it with electromagnetic coils to amp up the thrust (pun intended).

    Adjustable Speed Limits

    This is probably non-viable, as it would cost a huge amount of money to replace the signs, but replace speed limit signs with digital signs that take certain local conditions into account. Schools are going in or out, and it's a area within one kilometre of a school? 30 km/h would be the limit. It's a school zone, but it's 3 AM? 50 km/h, same as the rest of the city. It's a blizzard, and driving over 40 km/h would be dangerous? 40 km/h it is. It's springtime, the road is clear and straight, and a tornado is visible from the west headed in the direction of where the sign actually is? 200 km/h. Exceptions can be made for emergencies (eg, emergency services, going into labour, Godzilla is coming out of the ocean nearby before the sign has a chance to update) and for planned slow events (eg, funeral processions and parades). People who refuse to adjust to driving conditions at all (whether too fast or too slow) should not be driving at all.

    Cafes pay to bring customers from a meetup social network

    So some background: I’m developing an audio-based social network for local people to connect in voice calls within a 6 hour window for just one day of the week, so that they can find interesting people to meetup with at a local cafe.

    If the site can bring 5% of people who met through voice calls to plan meetups, and 25% of people actually show up, then we would need 400 voice call members/week to get 20 meetups a month. With a cap of 5 people per voice room that’s 80 sessions in the 6 hr window.

    A local cafe could give us $50/m for 20 customers that have used our limited-time 10% coupon code at the register. If those 20 customers got a $5 coffee, then we would pay $10 on coupons, and get $40 in profit. The cafe would earn $90 ($4.5*20) and give us $50 for a $40 return if people just bought coffee.

    I think this is a pretty crazy idea, and I really believe that I’ve got something here; it’s like reversed meetup.com + localized Twitter spaces

    What do you think? Am I in over my head? What should I look out for?

    Not the garbage truck, not the recycling truck... The RE-USE truck.

    All your undamaged bottles, containers, etc. get picked up and sent back to the companies who manufactured them for sterilization and reuse. Save energy, environment, money and time.

    Expand the crime of grand theft auto to all modes of personal transportation

    Tie the consequences of the crime to how severely it affects someone rather than the value of the object. If a bike, scooter, skateboard, or even a horse, is someone's sole means of transportation, stealing it hurts them the same as if you'd stolen their car. Therefore the thief should be charged just as severely. Yes wheelchairs too. Yes even a disabled person's bus pas could be covered. If you rob someone of their mobility, you steal their ability to function in society. It's off to the slammer with you.

    Glass jars for grocery items should be reused instead of recycled.

    Currently, when you recycle a glass jar, it gets crushed and melted, and then some of the resulting molten glass gets turned into a similar glass jar.

    It would be much more environmentally friendly if jars were cleaned, sanitized, and put back into use. If this were done at a large enough scale, it would also be cheaper than recycling, and some of that savings can be passed onto the consumer in the form of a rebate (maybe 20-40 cents) for each returned jar.

    Obviously, the main challenge would be getting a big enough volume for this to be financially viable. The sanitizing would have to be done in a large factory with an assembly line. Each collection site would need a machine that can quickly inspect the jars for cracks (with reasonable accuracy) before dispensing a rebate. The startup costs would be well into the millions, and the fixed annual costs would also be substantial. No startup would be able to do this; it would have to be done by multiple established companies with existing customer bases.

    One of the big manufacturers of glass jars should propose this to their biggest clients. They should ask the clients what features they need in a jar, and develop something that works equally well for peanut butter, jelly, pasta sauce, mayonnaise, and pickles. Once the big brands are on board, it should be easy to sell this to other brands as a way to cut costs.

    World leaders of warring nations should have peace talks while on MDMA

    According to recent research, MDMA is both a strong empathogen and neuroplastogen. An empathogen is a substance that enhances feelings of empathy and emotional connection with others. On the other hand, a neuroplastogen is a compound that promotes neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to reorganize and form new neural connections the way it happens in child brains. As a testament of the power of psychedelics like MDMA, a news story went viral not long ago about a white supremacists who left the ideology after a trip on a large dose of MDMA.
