Honorary HalfBaker Award

A category for recognition of HalfBaked things outside this web site
  [vote for,

The name of the category might be Halfbakery:Honorary Members

And I nominate this guy (link) for the first to be a recipient. I think we all might agree that that was a really HalfBaked Idea, at least until he went ahead and actually Baked it.

Other nominees/recipients should be posted as individual items in the Category. If the Category is created, I'll move this nomination into it as a separate posting. Voting would determine status with respect to qualifying as a recipient; if there are more buns than fishbones, then the nominee qualifies as an Honorary Member.

       I think the standard should be higher than "more buns than fishbones". Some pretty mediocre ideas meet that standard. I also think the person should be sent a physical plaque.

       There are already the ignoble awards which greatly reward halfbaked ideas.

       "Honorary?" As in conferring honor?

       How is skydiving into a net, halfbaked ?

       //How is skydiving into a net, halfbaked?//   

       It was an unproven idea. The very definition of halfbaked right up until it wasn't anymore. If someone had posted the idea here as a stunt it would have drawn all sorts of conjectures and divisions on whether it was possible or not.   

       The real question is;
Would they even care to belong to any club that would have them as a member?...

       We don't have to tell anyone accepted as an Honorary Member that that has happened. This IS the HalfBakery, after all!
