Yesterday I had an idea about Public:Law. I wrote it all out but didn't click the ok button because I realized it wasn't baked enough. I didn't have it sufficiently flushed out. I concluded it wasn't half-baked yet and not ready to post. It was probably quarter baked at that point.

But what if there was quarterbakery.com for that? We could post to it.

Edit: my title got changed to quarterbakery.com2 ... because quarterbakery.com already exists ... but my quarterbakery definitely isn't for kids.

       I din't realise there was a low cut-off here. I thought it was for (up-to-half)-baked ideas.

       Regrettably, there isn't.

       At that point, we've a listing of half-halfbaked ideas and bodiless puns, open to being fleshed out by other HB'ers : sure.

       "but my quarterbakery definitely isn't for kids."   

       Oh no, another porn site.

       Canuck, I thought you got frozen up or something, like Tin Man.   

       Somebody come along and oil you or something? Was her name Dorothy per chance?
blissmiss, Nov 04 2019
  

       I appreciate the distinction between nascent ideas: some must be fleshed out and some must be flushed out.
bungston, Nov 05 2019
  

       ... and some should be flushed away.
8th of 7, Nov 05 2019
  

       Frozen? No, bliss. Just off doing other real-world adventures. I still lurk here on occasion, tossing in my 5 cents-worth when the mood strikes.   

       //Why 5 cents?// you ask? We no longer use the penny here in Canada.   

       And no Dorothy, either. Just a yen to make use of billion-dollar military satellite technology to seek out plastic containers hidden in the forests. Gets me AFK and off my derriere.
Canuck, Nov 05 2019
  

       So, it's just public drafts intended for halfbakery?
Mindey, Nov 06 2019
  

       it's where standards are lower ... where details such as the differences between flushed out and fleshed out are overlooked.

       don't forget flashed.

       // We no longer use the penny here in Canada. //   

       I added an idea to my list the other week that relates to that. Maybe I'll post it soon.   

       // use billion-dollar military technology to seek out plastic containers hidden in the forests. //   

       Litter cleanup, or containers that people have deliberately hidden there?
notexactly, Nov 14 2019
  

       The containers are hidden deliberately. It's called geocaching, and they have a website, t-shirts, decoder rings (sort of) and much more. But no secret handshake. At least not one they have shared with me. There are over 3.117million geocaches currently hidden around the world.

       There used to be a lot of activity around the hills in Ct. I was just about to try it out, but then San Francisco called and had other plans for me. Do you do this hobby?
blissmiss, Nov 15 2019
  

       // Do you do this hobby? // I try to get out as much as I can, but I have found nearly every geocache within a 10km radius from home so it requires more planning before I venture out, what with me owning no car. I walk to where the caches are, or I use car-sharing and transit (when they're not picketing).
Canuck, Nov 17 2019
  

       // It's called geocaching //   

       Oh—of course it's geocaching. I was imagining something more adversarial (litterbugs vs. environmentalists, or foreign spies vs. national security people) based on how you described it.
