Where ELSE would you get weird ideas?
...but from weird people? That's the topic, not how much I enjoy being weird. OK...no particular order, just stuff I've thought of, maybe someone could 'run with it', maybe I'm the only one that thinks these have merit.
#1: I read a guy saying that Christian men should have an accountability partner, one that comes over and looks at your internet history. The way I see it, you can look at my history all you want, but I have difficulty enough getting my own chores done, I don't have time to come check up on you. So, how about a history sharing site, one that you control the access to, where your complete internet history is posted there? I know, I know, some will say that some poor saps just don't deserve freedom, but whatever, I haven't thought it through, it's just an idea off the cuff.
#2 Automotive mechanical disorder sounds (recorded). Years ago, I had this idea of a tunnel like affair, available to motorists. You would drive your car through at slow or moderate speed, with the windows open, and listen for sounds coming from your car. Might help with the diagnostic. Just the other day, I had a similar idea, a website with recorded sounds of common automotive ailments. That way, a guy like me might have help answering my current question: Is that rarr-rarr-rarr sound in my truck the differential going bad, or just the tread from the rear replacement tire I bought? Also, this place with the tunnel would have large reflective surfaces available. You would back your car up to it, then check to see if your signal and running lights are working. Although, this can be done in many commercial shopping centers.
The following ideas once appeared in cartoon form on my website, so you might already have seen them.
#3: Fix up a church van to look like an ambulance. Put reflective stripes, lights, and the like on it. the lettering would be to the effect of emergency help for lost souls. OF COURSE you can come up with better wording, it's not always my strong trait. Actually, I'm the weird kind of guy that thinks his wording is SO cool, why doesn't everybody like it as much as I do???
#4: This is where weird people need help, before they go off and do something more bizarre than usual. Yeah so anyway, I was about to pull out onto the main highway, and what drove by, but an early (50's??) Hearse. It was painted electric lime green, with custom graphics by the front fenders. The guy driving it was wearing a tophat. I loved it. I thought that if it were mine, I would put very large lettering along the solid metal panel: "EVERYBODY GETS ONE RIDE". Below that, Hebrews 9:27..."it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment."
#5: 3/4 scale Viking boat. We have a large family, so I thought it would be cool to have a Viking boat, complete with soaring snake head. As dad and captain, I would just order people around, the kids would "get" to power the oars. What fun to hit the islands at the lake with swords drawn, and give the picnickers the thrill of a lifetime! Unless of course, they were one of those concealed carry people.
