The stanley keg/bubba.
Imagine a keg or bubba that looks pretty much like the stanley cup. Guys would eat that shit up come any hockey game when they're having the guys over for beer. I just can't seem to design the thing.
The party Gnome.
Similar to the little travelling gnome in Amelie, the party Gnome would be dressed up like a raver, and his picture would be taken at various parties/club events. He would have his own website, post reviews, maybe even a message board.
"look, there's the party gnome with Christopher Lawrence"
"look, the party gnome is sleeping under a bush at WEMF"
Well, I guess that isn't a scheme, but it was a really fun idea.
You have no idea how much I wanted to build one back in the day. I used to use my old Pentium PC to supplement my DJ setup at early gigs. PCs weren't fast enough to allow for pitch augmentation back then so I used to use a dos based program called Cubic Player which would pitch shift in 3% increments. Heh. You can imagine how cumbersome this was but the convenience of cataloging my tunes and calling some up conveniently made up for it. It only played first-gen mp3â€™s as well, you know the ones with the video compression built in still.Originally posted by Dr Funk MD
That's not a scheme. that's an invention.
The problem with that theory is the 0 and 00 spots on the wheel. So in the long run the odds are always stacked towards the house.Originally posted by Karim
In highschool, I came up with this scheme of doubling bets on roullette when betting black or red. Just to continuously make money and beat the odds (because what are the odds of getting red 7 times in a row right?)
I stood infront of my finite mathematics class at the time and drew out the entire idea on the board and asked if any students could find fault in it. Even the teacher said there were no faults.
Well I didn't implement it...but my friends did. They came home $3000 lost....
Oh well, at least it wasn't my cash.
