Default Have you ever had an idea, someone else made successful?

I've had a couple. Way back in 95 I had the idea for a website, where you could send in your picture and have people tell you if you were good looking or not. Obviously that one got done.

When I was 13 I decided it would be awesome to make a toilet bowl that was also a fish tank. Couple years ago I was thumbing through a magazine and saw the same idea for sale.

A few years ago while I was driving around delivering pizza I was struck with the brilliant idea to run a car lot, where people who wanted to sell their own cars would just park it in my lot instead of on random street corners, and then pay me a fee. Heh, I called my then girlfriend at the time to tell her my brilliant idea and she said "uhm...yeah, they already have those....dumbass". oh well, at least I was right and it was a good idea [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] The other two tho I know I came up with first, im just lazy and never tried them out.

Anyone else got any?

It was my idea to redo the restaurant at the top of the Chrysler building.

You see I come up with these things, I know they’re gold, but nothing happens. You know why?

No, no time! It’s all this meaningless time. Laundry, grocery, shopping, coming in here talking to you. Do you have any idea how much time I waste in this apartment?

I honestly thought of MP3 players a while before I ever heard of the iPod (or any other player). If only I had the resources at the time...

Before the low carb craze I thought I should open a store that specialized in low carb type foods. This was in '98 or '99. I saw one last year but I don't think its there anymore so I guess I dodged a bullet.
