FInd the idea category in the entire Halfbakery that has no ideas yet.

(?) Idea count by category http://www.halfbake...m/view/Idea_20count
But a category with no ideas will not be in this list. Looks like it can't be done, as the filter must return an idea. [Ling, Apr 20 2017]


       Is it "Product: marshmallow: electric"?
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 18 2017

       A worthy suggestion, but alas my team of engineers are now busy developing this as a viable product. Thanks.

       While you're at it find the category with the most ideas.   

       If you cheat by using the search engine, please tell the rest of us how you did it.

       Sport: sex: dungeon is also strangely quiet.

       There are no idea categories which have less than 2 postings that I could find.
Any moderator could toss one in there just long enough to win though.

       The category with the most ideas is Food: [general] with 78 postings   

       I think that a triboelectric marshmallow that gave glints of light when pulled apart might actually be popular. It could even be (hint hint) wint-o-green flavored.

       It should be possible to produce marshmallows with a hydrogen/oxygen mix, rather than air, as the foaming gas. They could then be detonated, simultaneously toasting and distributing them.
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 20 2017

       Our engineers have now constructed a device, similar to that which delivers builder's expanding foam, only this one is equipped with the ability to deliver a spark to the emerging pulses of compound. This, as Max correctly observes, causes them to explosively combust into fully formed and nicely toasted mashmallows. A fine net catches the completed product. Meanwhile, no one has yet discovered the blank HB category!

       There are 2825 categories listed on the "add idea" page.   

       There are 2825 categories with at least one idea, according to the view, which implies there are no categories with zero ideas.   

       Unless, of course, there are hidden categories which pleb users do not have access to.   

       There are two categories with exactly one idea.

       The truth is out there somewhere.

       //There are two categories with exactly one idea.//   

       Interesting. [Krelnik]'s All Categories filter lists the number of ideas beside each category and I didn't see a single 1 idea hit in the bunch.
Which categories?

       One of them is halfbakery: crash 2004, but I don't want to reveal the other one in case someone posts an idea there.   

       There's also the possibility of finding a category with all its ideas posted by one user, who could then delete them all and win this contest.

       //The category with the most ideas is Food: [general] with 78 postings//   

       I think there might be some contenders: Science:technology...82
Science:health...79 Sport:racing...78

       I confirm their are no categories with 0 ideas, two with 1 idea and forty with 2 ideas.   

       But there is a blank in Space:blanket...   

       And a bizarre category that is far from the least populated....Home:Pet:Sex toy

       Wouldn't the esteemed bakesperson be ineligible due to the easy search with the correct command line?
