25 Ideas That Sound Really Good Until They Are Tried

You probably have some ideas for things that you want to do in your life; things that you haven’t ever done before. It could be climbing Mount Everest, going to the moon, or just grabbing lunch at that diner that you’ve always wanted to go to. Regardless of what your aspirations are, you have probably found out by now that not all of them live up to your expectations. Some of them are just…disappointing.

For example, for all of you that have ever gotten caught up in a reverse funnel/multi-level-marketing/pyramid/whatever-they-call-it-these days type scheme, you know the pain. First of all, we would like to say sorry that you wasted your time and were duped (for those of you that are still in it right now, come back and re-read this list in a few months). Other than that though, you are now older, more mature, and wiser. You now know that things often turn out differently than the way you expected. That’s just how life is. You live and you learn. Therefore, the point of today’s list is a bit of comedy mixed with some warnings. For those of you who haven’t tried the things on this list, do so at your own risk. These are 25 ideas that sound good until they are tried.

Unless you are filthy rich and think you can afford repairs that cost far more than anything you would ever have imagined…don’t do it.
