Facebook started out as a small university social network, and grew into a global phenomenon with millions of users, and millions of dollars in advertising revenue. YouTube started out in a garage and was recently purchased for over a billion dollars. Google went from an idea started by two students with maxed out credit cards, to a multi-billion dollar business. There are numerous other examples of ideas that started out with almost nothing and turned their owners into millionaires, and many other people scramble to do the same.
So could this be the next idea to turn it's owner into a multi-millionaire?
Web site seeks to reunite gloves with ownersNext million-dollar idea? Ermm. Somehow, I just don't think so.
PITTSBURGH - It's like an online dating service for long lost gloves. A Texas native who experienced her first snowflakes in Pittsburgh last year was miffed by the lost gloves she spotted all over the city last winter. Whom did they belong to? Wouldn't they want them back? Why were people just walking past them?
So Jennifer Gooch, who is pursuing her master of fine arts degree at Carnegie Mellon University, started www.onecoldhand.com in an effort to reunite dropped gloves with their mates — and in the process spread some goodwill
Remember Survivor? A number of contestants living on an island with no modern amenities, having to rely on their own skill and strength to survive? That was exciting. Remember The Biggest Loser? Putting a number of over-weight contestants together in a house and putting them to the test to see who could lose weight the fastest? That show was fun, and inspiring. Remember The Amazing Race? A competition between a number of teams racing around the world to pick up clues and win the race? That was stimulating, and interesting.
This show, on the other hand...
Show seeks to love match migrants and U.S. citizensOh wow. The adrenaline rush. I can't believe it. A show actually about a US citizen and a non-US citizen getting married? Oh wow. My blood is pumping. I'm so excited.
PHOENIX (Reuters) - A Los Angeles company is touting a new reality game show called "Who Wants to Marry a U.S. Citizen" that aims to create televised matrimony between legal citizens and immigrants who have temporary visas.
The show's backers at Morusa Media hope to make a sort of love match between reality TV and a national obsession with immigration. But the producers make no promise that a marriage will occur or lead to U.S. citizenship.
I really have no comment on this one:
Police: Hershey candy looks like drugs
HARRISBURG, Pa. - New mint packets being sold by The Hershey Co. look nearly identical to the tiny heat-sealed bags used to sell illegal powdered drugs like crack, heroin and cocaine and glorify the drug trade, a Philadelphia police official said.
Now sure, the ideas are stupid, but don't be suprised if you seem them go on to make a lot of money! Stupidity sells nowadays, unfortunately.
