What is your genius idea?

    I literally just submitted my genius idea to the BBC show genius. The idea is that a panel of celebrities review ideas submitted by the public and decide if they are genius or rubbish. Ideas have included making ice lollies out of soup to trick kids into eating healthier.

    My idea was to convert the ice cream trucks of the summer into hot winter treat vans for winter. I think this is genius because it gives these people winter work (what does the ice cream man do in the winter months?!) and it could go some way to helping with seasonal depression, how depressed can you really feel with a hot chocolate and a marshmallow in? It may even go some way to helping the economy by creating jobs for people to fit out the vans with the winter ovens and then in summer for the ice chests. They only possible down side is that it could be hard to brand. The ice cream man is easy and fun to say, conjures up happy memories and such and the winter version would need something similar.

    What cool, crazy, wacky and totally genius idea would you propose?

      Haha that's a great idea, me like it! (although we dont have those trucks here in Italy -- boo!)

      My idea is the implementation of a zero gravity supermarket!

      All the old, arthritic women would be able to shop comfortably and not have tug their luggage around.

      But surely they have to go to the Antartic to collect all the ice in the winter Kirstenblog yikes

      Some actually work all year round, and do ok because the competitiion disperses. Some have alternatively vans/trailors for burgers and stuff, whilst others do seasonal work.

      Its a good idea, but I don't think its particularly new, sorry sad

      We have a posh local one which does it on horse and cart, they go to fetes and stuff in the summer. In the winter they make all the ice cream smile

        Nice one! I have some stuff that is supposed to make my hair glow in the dark (it's actually just UV sensitive, kinda a misleading claim really!) and if it actually did work then I could have the hair, nails and make up!

        Actually that might be scary lol

    Most people are mad at the government for not been employed.

    I realy have a idea to solve the problem of unemployment.

    The school curicullum should include compulsery vocational work that will be rewarded and such vocation should be trated with so much respect that people will be willing to be involved in it.

    If that is encourage unemployment will be reduced if not eliminated.

      I think they have tried similar ideas in the States when I was in school there, and there was outrage at the very idea. I personally was happy to do compulsory community service toward my gpa or whatever but there were lots of kids saying it equated to slave labor and their parents supported this. I guess people just can't see to far beyond their own noses. hmm

      if the technology increases even more the employment will reduce even more..! more robotized equals more unemployment...!

    my genius idea

    is to find out how a thermos flask knows when the liquid that's poured into it is hot or cold.

      You know, this one is pretty good!
      Last show of Genius I caught, they had a guy on who won a Genius award even tho not a one of his ideas won the award, he had just submitted more ideas that anyone else in the history of the show, and that made him a genius (of sorts). They quizzed him on some of his genius ideas and it was hysterical lol

      Write a books worth of zany genius ideas and you would have a laugh riot on your hands. Good comedy books are not that prolific and I would read it!

    To gather all of these immigrant bed bugs and dumping them in the House of Congress. Maybe then they would figure a way to exterminate them again, for good. I am speaking of real bugs here too. We're under siege ya know?

      Oh I have heard about that!

      I wondered if it was like the biblical plague of locusts only bed bugs and America not Egypt and the pres instead of pharaoh?

        Yes, and Ohio is high on the list of the worst infestation. Magnoliazz hubbed about it recently. She's quite concerned. LOL

    I don't think extermination is the key more like encourage immigrants to start businesses to provide jobs for the natives.

    I know. How did all those bedbugs end up in Ohio?
    Do you think it's related to Ohio being the pivotal swing state in elections... "as Ohio goes, so goes the country..."???

    I am still thinking about those old arthritic women flying in heaps under the roof holding their skirts with one hand, trying to collect the oranges floating arount in the air, being hit by big watermelons rolling around like small planets... It's zero gravity, what do you expect? yikes
