  1. Well, I wouldn’t call Santa Mail a stupid idea, I’d call it a stolen one. Many, many companies have been doing this for years before this guy was even born. I got them every year when I was little (mid 70’s). Inserts in the newspapers or ladies’ magazines and catalogs sold them for $1 each back then. Fully personalized.

  2. Haha Doggles! That’s great.

    I have a friend’s dad who invented the baseball (well 1/2 baseball) that looks like it’s going through a windshield. It’s basically a sticker. Last I heard Target was interested in it, but not sure if it’s making millions yet.

  3. Another interesting idea I wanted something different paguina again, but his aim is to pay for their studies and studies of his girlfriend.
    This is according saw the idea was to sell advertising space to others to make money through this kind of publicity, a rare and innovative.
    Have to wait haver their failure or success.

  4. yeah at first these all ideas might sound stupid, but they made it work somehow, yes hats off to all of them for efforts and creativity.

  5. LOL, I’ve to say the on the internet dating or electronic dating has come a hell of a way since the days of simple chat rooms. Far more and a lot more individuals are turning to online dating internet sites to screen potential dates.

  6. There were many other attempts to succeed by creating a “stupid business idea” such as this one that I saw, where people are supposed to pay real money just to show that they are rich and they can afford it, there are some social networking sites and stuff integrated as well, pretty stupid site,
