22 Dumb Ideas That Actually Worked

Imagine, if you will, a world in which the stupidest ideas actually worked. A world in which your boss decides to put stickers all over your computer screen to "motivate" you to work harder, or in which you spray yourself with perfume every time you have to speak in public. Wouldn't that be a crazy place? Well, believe it or not, there are actually people out there who have tried these things, and sometimes they DO even work! This blog post is for them. It's for the people who have tried something dumb, and it ended up working, proving that sometimes the stupidest ideas can be the smartest ones after all. So whatever you do, don't knock them until you've tried them!
