Online Forum for Discussion of DEconstruction of already implemented Bad Things.

There are many things that exist in the world that shouldn't be... (some would argue Mahatma being one of them)

Good citizens of the world must unite and determine a way to deconstruct them and erase them from existence (or at least ridicule them)

Many times, "social selection" eliminates them, many times pure boredom of the device/invention/creation/process eliminates them. Sometimes, however, they are as difficult to get rid of (like, for me..the memory of Hillary Clinton's yellow teeth)

We must determine ways to RID the world of evil things like the smell in farts (though the noise is quite entertaining), pens that don't work even though there is ink visible in the barrel, very old people that still drive. There is a very fine line and distinction between the halfbakery and halfbutchery -- Halfbakery is discussion of ideas to solve problems that exist -- Halfbutcher is deconstruction of bad things through discussion of ideas.

I know I'm going to get fishbones for this..

BTW.. POLITICS AND RELIGIOUS NUTS NOT ALLOWED ON HALFBUTCHERY.COM. They are too good at deconstruction, and have an "unfair advantage"...

A place to meet up for Half bakers,butchers,assed and florists [sufc, Oct 05 2004]


       You mean we all get to sit around and make fun of stuff?   

       I'm in!   

       PS. Will there be explosions?
ato_de, May 02 2003

       What's the difference between "discussion of ideas to solve problems that exist" and "discussion of ideas" to solve the "deconstruction of bad things" (which are also "problems that exist")?   

       The only difference is the nature of the problem - the latter being a specific subset - and halfbakery.com already covers it. I don't see the point.

       would not be as nice as this place though. +1
po, May 02 2003

       [waugs] halfbakery is too nice. We don't discuss taking stuff apart that we don't like. We discuss making stuff to solve conditions that we are not happy about.
mahatma, May 02 2003

       No fishbones from me.   

       My suggestions for places to start: reality television, nonfat dairy products, leaf blowers, the Designated Hitter, Chuck E. Cheese's, margarita mix.   

       In fact, I'd be happy to start drafting a white paper right now on the failure of social inclusion data in child-targeted restaurant design (anti-Chuck E. Cheese's rant). My proposed "correction" plan includes more windows, acoustic tiles, and most important, a full bar for parents.   

       Croissant, mahatma. Start sharpening your cleaver.

       If you ban politicians and "religious nuts," you'd also have to ban the butchery of political and religious things. Shame, that.

       //My suggestions for places to start: ... leaf blowers//

Hear, hear!. I'm glad I'm not alone in finding them a ludicrous and spectacular waste of energy.
What's a designated hitter?

       //a place to send people who just want to rant//   

       Can we set it so that if their IP is recognized they are redirected/banished to the other site?
FloridaManatee, May 21 2003

       This idea suggests to me an entire half-marketplace of ideas. Other half-shops in this market:   

       Half-Florist.com - a place to discuss sending flowers to someone you half-way like. (e.g. "she loves me, she loves me not...")   

       HalfHaberdashery.com - a place to discuss solutions to problems with your wardrobe (e.g. "I've got absolutely nothing to wear!")   

       HalfAutoRepair.com - a place to discuss what a freakin' drag it is to fix your car (conveiniently situated next to the halfButcher!)   

       Email for the entire system would be handled by the halfPostOffice.com.   

       But who am I kidding, all this stuff would only be half-built before eBay, Amazon and AOL would swoop in, and install halfStripmall.com, and then halfWalmart.com would follow. We'd be left with plenty of headaches and problems to discuss, such as the alarming rate of Internet Sprawl.   

       Which would pretty much leave us needing only halfBakery.com and halfButchery.com.   

       I'll give you a croissant since a nice big ribeye isn't available yet.
dijontoothpaste, May 21 2003

       HalfArsed.com, maybe? For people who can't be bothered.
Detly, Aug 13 2003

       There is a place just outside the city I live called Halfway.<see link>
sufc, Aug 13 2003

       Yes! Some things make the existence very unplesant, even though they are maybe simple to remove.
