Entropic HalfBakery

Mirror HB and pour errors on it

This site would mirror the halfbakery but add random misspellings, swap arbitrary words, and commit other such mayhem a little at a time. There would be a button each user could press to unentropize. Mayhem rate would increase as a function of time passed since the last time the button was pressed. When rendered totally illegible it could be reset to a precise mirror.

       Isn't committing arbitrary (intellectual) mayhem one of the primary purposes of the HB already? [+]

       This mirror site could be useful for all number of sites.

       The entropic halfbakery would be like the thousand monkeys. Eventually, it would produce good ideas.

       A sort of Browser "hall of mirrors"?! Cool!   

       Sounds like a Browser pluggin, to me. Something that references The Wayback Machine's copy of any site you browse to, reflects the "saved" text WRT it's recorded history (in some seeded / repeadedly "random" way, such that over time it changes as decribed above - i.e. the revert button simply displays the current / recent history view) .
