Like Hot or Not of the mind, Ideas Happen is a website where people can post their ideas and have others rate them with the “feelin’ it or not feelin’ it” scale. The top twelve ideas get $25,000 from Visa. Proposals range from entreprenuerial endeavors such as creating a “therma coil manifold” like Gomer here from Kentucky, to non-profit wedding planning for poor folk.
While IdeasHappen is probably one of the stupidest ways I can think of to waste $300,000, it can be entertaining to page through some of the ideas, especially the ones with video. After watching a few dozen, you’ll probably realize that whatever stupid idea you have is better than most on the site. Hurry up though — only six days left to enter your big idea!
