Judging from the box office returns....apparently a good idea.

Annoying a real life Red Foreman.
 Darth Avlectus

Good idea if you want a boot-oscopy. :devsmoke:

Teaching your parrot to tell people to ****off.
11-04-2013, 7:43 PM
Good idea. Saves you the trouble of saying it yourself.

Parking your car in a handicapped washroom stall.
 Red Hessian
11-05-2013, 4:28 AM
Good idea if you own a Smart.

Cows that fart more methane.
11-05-2013, 2:19 PM
Good idea. We could always use more of that.

Going to the bathroom in a handicapped parking space.
 Darth Avlectus
11-05-2013, 10:42 PM
Excellent idea. Period.

Launching oneself through a window with a spring loaded launcher disguised as a quarter-per-ride rocket machine.
11-08-2013, 12:26 PM
Depends on where you land, and what sort of impact protection you have.

Moving to Night Vale.
11-08-2013, 1:45 PM

Okay idea. I mean, depends on how you feel about helping old ladies and such.

Wrapping pork in bacon, deep-frying it, and then shoving it inside the cooked carcass of a turkey.
 Darth Avlectus
11-08-2013, 11:16 PM
Excellent idea, if highly risky to inducing massive heart attacks but I'm sure many will say it's totally worth it.

Using crew skill job professions for easy big $$$ instead of fuctional side benefits to get to the good items quicker while gaming the GTN.
11-09-2013, 1:47 AM
Naturally. :devsmoke:

Buying cartel market packs as another way to finance your toon.
 Darth Avlectus
11-09-2013, 10:19 PM
Neutral-Good: for stuff you can't get otherwise or is impractical (inordinate time and effort) to try to get as a drop, good.

Saving credits by not buying a speeder, and simply going to the FlashPoint start location before calling out to other players for help--sharing mission once you do.
11-09-2013, 11:51 PM
First part bad idea......running/walking everywhere sucks and speeder taxi only good for so much. Second part good idea in general, unless you end up killing a lot of time waiting for help.

Giving out random buffs to other players.
11-10-2013, 7:31 PM
Wait! What exactly do you mean by "random buff"? :dev8: Never mind. Neutral idea and I'm gonna leave it at that.

Going fishing with dynamite to save time and reduce the level of hunger.
11-10-2013, 8:56 PM
explosive idea......'nough said. :xp:

Making insinuations in an open forum.
11-11-2013, 1:18 AM
Sounds like a fun idea! Why didn't I think of that! :D

Going deer hunting with a bazooka.
11-11-2013, 5:43 AM
Good,as long as you turn on the "TARGET LOCK" feature.:p

Joining a game clan without playng the game itself.
11-11-2013, 1:29 PM
Bad. There is no telling the rage the clan may have when they are infiltrated by a dirty casual.

Starting a clan with no particular game to play.
 Darth Avlectus
11-11-2013, 7:11 PM
Excellent idea: Have you ever heard of Vent Harassment? :dev9:

Trying to "Kill Charlie Varrick" when you're not on top of your game. (I doubt any of you have even watched that movie.)
11-13-2013, 11:38 PM
Great idea. Someone could use the practice.

Wishing churchgoers a merry Snmgfiehp.
 Darth Avlectus
11-15-2013, 2:59 AM
Baffling idea: I'm not even sure I know what that means. I'm assuming it's a scrambled word so I'm trying on those lines without much success...

A gluing of hand to forehead clause in contracts with your clients. Just because.
11-15-2013, 3:06 AM
I'm not sure what the point would be.

Changing Batman's name to Batfist, and having his fighting style consist entirely of punching.
 Darth Avlectus
11-23-2013, 9:47 PM
Bad idea if some DC villain has a grappling style.

Having a tame pet Laigrek from KOTOR2 and teaching it to speak like people.
11-27-2013, 12:24 PM
Excellent idea. Can double as a trusty guard-bug.

Allowing said Laigrek to taste of human flesh.
11-27-2013, 10:34 PM
Good idea if you need to fool some cannibals.

Becoming your country's ambassador to Franchia.
 Red Hessian
11-28-2013, 4:33 AM
Good idea. Basically you're doing nothing and making loads of money.

Dressing in full camo and going to Sunday mass.
11-28-2013, 10:17 AM
Depends on the congregation.

As an optometrist, using a deliberately blurry eye exam poster as a prank.
 Darth Avlectus
11-29-2013, 12:21 AM
Good idea. The reactions you get will be priceless.

Betting on a sarlacc pit creature being unable to digest a hutt.
11-29-2013, 9:18 AM
Bad idea. Do you have any idea how big a sarlacc actually is?

Giving these ( out and saying they're mint flavoured.
 Darth Avlectus
12-03-2013, 12:16 AM
Excellent idea. Sounds like fun.

Bad idea. Do you have any idea how big a sarlacc actually is? Yes I do actually. Do you even know about Jabba's father, Zorba? ...I'll just leave it at that.

Making a christmas peppermints with Dave's ghost pepper gourmet hot sauce.

(BTW my roommate ordered some and it just came in today. I can already tell, this is gonna hurt.)
12-05-2013, 1:04 AM
Great idea! Nothing says "Happy Holidays" like sending someone to the emergency room with stomach ulcers! lol

Sending me all of your Christmas money upon receipt of said gifts.
12-05-2013, 4:17 AM
Bad idea....that money has all been pledged to me already. :p

Having Ozzie star in a remake of It's a Wonderful Life.
12-06-2013, 1:45 AM
Damn good idea! The Prince of Darkness screws George Bailey over by faking to be his guardian angel and actually pushes poor George off the bridge into the river.


Ozzie: Well that's what you bloody well wanted! Don't blame me!

Ozzie running for President and winning the election.

(I know, it's a shot in the dark, but could happen)
12-06-2013, 4:41 AM
Bad (and not in the "good" way :D ) idea. You think America is screwed up now......

Making Chuck Norris (the ideal version,not so much the actual man) ruler of the world.
12-07-2013, 5:48 PM
Really bad idea. Even the ideal Chuck Norris is a lunatic.

Attempting to make "assbag" into a popular profanity.
 Darth Avlectus
12-21-2013, 3:48 AM
Good idea. That's such a natural profanity given today's literacy levels...I'm actually surprised it isn't already. *raises beer to a toast in creating a world with one more profanity*

Making a romhack of megaman 4, with an insanely hard version of ShadowMan--like 20 different attacks on an 8 bit platform........ :devsmoke:
12-22-2013, 12:04 AM
Good idea, I guess.

Constantly saying things that sound dirty, but have no discernible meaning.
 Darth Avlectus
12-24-2013, 1:59 AM
Good idea. I wish i knew how to do that better. I'm onl good at picking it up when someone else does it. :(

A device that can create a live person version of some ficitonal character you don't like, so that you can pulverize them and pound them to death.
12-24-2013, 6:37 PM
Bad idea....murder is murder. :carms:

Having a machine that copies your worst enemies into digital form so you can pulverize them over and over again.
 Darth Avlectus
12-25-2013, 1:52 AM
Good idea, until digital pulverization is outlawed as hate speech.

Literally throwing the kitchen sink at the next hooligan who tries to rob your house...while you live inCalifornia where laws still protect the obviously guilty criminal.
12-25-2013, 11:41 AM
Sounds like a good idea, but you may need a small trebuchet for best results.

Knocking Santa out when he comes down your chimney and taking his sleigh for a world round trip joyride.
 Red Hessian
12-25-2013, 3:37 PM
Good idea. Just make sure you get the drop on him, the old guy's got a wicked left hook.

A flame retardant Santa outfit.
12-25-2013, 9:14 PM
Excellent idea. People with fireplaces are probably using them this time of year.

At a bar, using pills that do nothing to make people think their drinks have been spiked, and then stealing said drinks.
 Darth Avlectus
12-31-2013, 6:02 PM
Good idea so long as you can keep it on the sly and isn't done too often so people don't figure it out.

Giving Kefka a heroin shot to calm his happy ass down.
01-01-2014, 9:47 AM
Good idea. As long as it gets results, I don't care if it's illegal.

Turning your local Safeway into a giant deathtrap.
 Darth Avlectus
01-02-2014, 5:00 PM
Neutral: It's been done before...anything more exciting than that?

Hiring that one crazy old man who made rockets out of garbage cans to build some sturdy racks for holding all your metal stock (i.e. used in welding, cutting and other metal work).
01-04-2014, 9:46 PM
Good idea. Sounds cheap.

Making a postsecondary school as ridiculous as Greendale Community College.
 Darth Avlectus
01-07-2014, 4:44 AM
Good idea: I mean american school is already a joke for the most part anyways, so why not use a fictional CC as a role model...right?

Going onto youtube channels of butthurt COD players that got trolled by MinnesotaBurns...and pissing them off even more.
01-11-2014, 3:56 PM
Good idea. Those people are hilarious.
Combining Annie and Annie Get Your Gun into a single musical.
01-12-2014, 12:59 PM
Interesting idea. Sounds like it's worth a shot.

Using hand built drones to spy on your mate, if you think he/she is cheating on you.
01-13-2014, 10:22 AM
Bad idea. Everyone's paranoid about being spied on these days.
