It would be a mistake to focus on good ideas to the exclusion of all others -- we learn a lot from our mistakes, and ideally, we learn from the mistakes of others. In that spirit, this is a call for stories about the worst idea you've ever had, broadly construed. Ideas about life, personal behavior, business, technology: anything is fair game, from getting married in Las Vegas after 9 martinis to starting a frozen yogurt shop in Juneau to staying too long in a hated job to boycotting the dentist... well, you get the idea.
