The brain is a truly fantastic thing. The same organ that’s capable of controlling a myriad of passive as well as active bodily functions, comprehending elaborately complex concepts, and providing a unique kind of sentience is also the organ that often slips us a dumb idea. Or two. OK, much more.

But, hey, not all ideas are dumb, despite you thinking so. A curious Twitter user by the name of Bijan asked the internet what’s the dumbest idea people ever had, but are nevertheless convinced it’d still make the world a better place for all.

I also think they should live on an "average" wage for a year or two so they understand what the average person/family have to go through.

Legalize weed across the states, tax it, and use that money to repair the roads. Call it Operation Pothole.

Definitely, and for crying out loud ride in single file, not 2-3+ abreast.

Well in Australia it is illegal to ask a breastfeeding mother to leave or move elsewhere etc. Doesn't matter if she is feeding in the middle of a shopping centre, a restaurant etc. From my observations, it seems that other women are the ones that complain about breastfeeding in public, a lot more than men do.

This one makes me so sad, especially because of how women and PoC are so much more routinely dismissed, leading to sometimes dire consequences.

That should be acceptable. HOWEVER, it should go both ways. I am tried of being polite while a cashier ignores me and gossips with a coworker or cops an attitude.

4 minutes. That's the duration of every light in my town from 6am to 6pm. They are pressure sensitive outside that window.

Knowing me I would procrastinate until June, then „relax“ during the summer until I finally put together a manuscript in december.

All the money that is spent on marketing and advertising saved would make products cheaper, and if the product changes are good, it will sell itself X

It's a lovely thought but I fear that the lure of the dark side will be too strong for many.

I saw a report on some show where they were actually testing the viability of this. In Greenland, IIRC.

Well, the horn is supposed to be used only in case of emergency. If you are in an emergency, you don't need that level of stress added on top of it.

In the United States there is a large percentage of people who are incarcerated essentially for being poor. They couldn't pay a fine and then they get put in prison.... so.....

Can I add that it should also be illegal to ask what you do? Everywhere, not just at parties.

It's certainly not that simple and the US isn't evenly split. Also many "red states" are only red because those in power are messing with election laws so the political leaning of the masses might be different. There are also plenty of conservatives in "blue states"

Can't remember where is was, but in a town in Europe everyone parked with their handbrake off so people could move the other cars back and forth as they parked or pulled away so they could all fit in
