       Very funny. But the bubbles, but what about all those big fat bubbles raising to the surface?

       [+] for the imagery. Would they be allowed to use scuba diving lead weights to keep them down? I imagine sumo wrestlers would typically need a considerable quantity of weights due to their rather low buoyancy. Of course you might want a non-weighted league which would pretty much just bob around, trashing at one another.

       //Would they be allowed to use scuba diving lead weights// Yesterday I was able to go swimming for the first time in almost a decade. I found I had acquired a tendency to float in most undignified positions. I began wishing for a weight belt, which is exactly what triggered this idea.

       There is an underwater rugby.

       My brothers and I used to play underwater kung fu at the beach.

       From wikipedia, "Sumo is a competitive contact sport where a wrestler (rikishi) attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring (dohyô) or to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet"   

       What counts as out of bounds, for underwater sumo?
goldbb, Jun 29 2009

       I think a weighted hoop, like a hula hoop but regulation size, or other agreed boundary. Or the deep end. Whatever. Just don't bother throwing the salt.

       Some scientists postulate that may be how the ocean became as salty as it is - thousands of years of underwater sumo salt throwing.

       [Wily Peyote] The title and the idea itself embody the very Japanese spirit of minimalism, evidenced in ikebana and other decorative arts.
Less can be more.
Look at your own home page - a veritable riot of potential ideas, though something of a duster for potential data miners.

       Somebody try to write an "home-run" idea in just 9 words: title, summary, and thesis (the minimalist Holy Grail). Now, that'd be a coupe. Is it possible?
Wily Peyote, Jul 02 2009

       I thought I had one but nope :(
FlyingToaster, Jul 02 2009

       // that'd be a coupe //   

       Eh ? A shorter, more powerful version of a standard model ?   

       Haiku ideas ? I think we did that one. <link>
