History is awash with examples of incredible discoveries, inventions and innovations that we take for granted today, but were widely mocked as crazy when they first came to light. Maybe, just maybe, there is future genius hidden in some of these ideas, taken from the subreddit CrazyIdeas.

I mean, who thought that injecting people with a benign form of disease to immunize them was a good idea at first? Or putting wings on a tube and attempting to fly in it? Absolute madness!

What we have here is a list a crackpot ideas that nobody could ever take seriously. Or could they? Some are undoubtedly just stupid and funny, others are actually rather insightful. There is even the odd nugget of genius where you think “hey, that could actually work!”

But what if the person who wrongly testified legitimately mistook the innocent person for the person who did the crime? This can be the case especially if the testifier is the one who is raped. The whole experience is traumatizing and is something the brain does not want to remember well.

My emotional response is to agree with this sentiment, because yes, false accusations are a crime. At the same time, I wonder how this would impact women coming forward to face their rapists. Rape is already under reported, add on top of that the fear of possibly not being believed and then getting sent to jail for it, I think less victims would come forward.

I support the idea in principle but proving if a rape did or did not happen is often incredibly hard, I wonder if this could lead to people being raped and then imprisoned for trying to prove that they're were raped, I guess it really depends on how it's implemented and if we are talking about people that you can 100% prove that they knew they were lying etc.

Wow this is disgusting victim blaming right here. This indicates that it happens all the time when really false accusations are actually VERY rare. There is a reason why so many victims of rape don’t come forward because of shit like this where people don’t believe them or think “they are lying” when they’re most certainly not. This is just sickening and shame on you Bored Panda for posting this crap.

Zenozenobee

In theory that sound good... but practically, it sucks because it would only be a new way to prevent victimes to file a claim. They would legitimly be afraid of prosecute their agressor because if they can't prove the rape/agression the victimes are going to be the one ending up in jail!. In France only 10% of the victimes file a claime, only 3% end up with a condamnation of the agressor. Recently, a man that raped a 11 years old girl was released because the court decided the girl follow the man willingly!!! (the associations went mad and made it public so new actions are on). But think about it: the man was released so the 11 years girl should go to jail because the crime wasn't recognised????

Only in theory- I agree there are too many people in prison who are innocent. The ones who put them there are corrupt cops overwhelmingly, and I support throwing them behind bars. But let's be realistic, only 3 out of 100 rape cases ever even make it to trial- usually only 1 or 2 rapists out of 100 are convicted. Rape is not the only crime! Again, look at the huge numbers of AA population locked up- support drug reform, and get rid of corrupt cops. I have a hard, hard time wanting to blame the woman when she could have been under duress herself.

Rafaella Bueno

And more importantly: the advertising of the person's innocence has to be even bigger than the advertising of the supposed crime to make sure everybody knows they're not really a rapist. Did his conviction show up on tv? The same show on the same time slot HAS to tell everybody they were wrong.

It depends: If malicious, YES and maybe add fraud or perjury or something similar. If an honest mistake about identity, they should be charged a fine and community service (to be determined in consultation with the innocent person who was imprisoned). If it was an honest mistake of consent or intention (imprisoned person made an honest and reasonable mistake in believing there was consent) the accuser should not be punished.

A reality show idea with gay men.

11 gay men and 1 straight man are locked in a house. The object for the gay men is to find out who isn't gay. Once a week someone gets outvoted, until 2 are left, or the straight man is out. If the gays manage to outvote him, they win 1 million dollars. If the straight man is among the 2 last people in the house in the end, he wins 1 million dollars.

Now here's the twist: None of the men are actually gay, they just all think they are the one straight man.
