    You have em I want them. What's that thing you thought would make you a million but all your friends naysayed you and treated you like an idiot child. I know I'm not the only one out there.

    I came up with a bicycle helmet lock that mounts to the handlebars. They're currently being prototyped in China, and I have SEVEN MILLION ORDERS already.

    Or not.

    My greatest idea ever was to simply keep my mouth shut.

    I had a friend who thought adding alligator clips to his earphones was a million dollar idea. He really believed in it. No one supported it though. Last I heard he was selling road side iron art.

    I have a friend that thought starting a forum was a million dollar idea. I think he got pretty close.

    I would be surprised if it didn't sell for over a million.

    My Dad did that. Thought he was going to make million dollars. Last time I checked his machine, I call it "tuition", was rotting in his garage. Metal art that is. Why would you need to add alligator clips to headphones?

    I think it was a matter of not shopping it around. Oh well. He's doing ok.

    I guess so. Seems annoying. Equivalent to riding around with an 80's boombox. I hate people who for some reason think its a great idea to blast their radio at the gas pump.

    I hate them too but they have a right to do it. NO matter how much
    I don't want them to.

    there was this stake and ale restaurant by my house that went out of business. as soon as i saw the for sale sign i thought to myself, "that would be a great location for a night club". about a year later someone bought it and made it a night club. it was the same night club for over 10 years. for the last 4 or 5 years it has been a gentleman's club. i am sure it has made well over a million dollars by now.

    A beer can wrap with an audible alarm built into the bottom that is activated by a keyfob transmitter. Then I would never have to ask myself "Where did I leave that thing again.....".

    I have the ultimate million dollar idea, but in order for me to tell you about it you need to send me $1,000,000.00 and a self addressed stamped envelope.;)

    You may have better luck getting a million people to send you a dollar, and an envelope.

    Yes but to post that up on a website would be bordering on spam. I like it here and don't want to be banned.

    I had an opportunity to post bail for Gary Coleman. But I didn't think he would submit to a photo in jail, and sign a waiver...
