Here's one for all y'all: Berkson's Drug Theorem
There exists a number n for any ailment such that the drug you take for it will have side effects such that drug(1) relieves the ailment, drug(2) relieves side effect(1), drug(3) relieves side effect(2)...drug(n) relieves side effect(n-1) where side effect(n) is your original ailment for any value of n greater than two.

I remember when I worked at Lehman Brothers there was a period of time where it was owned by American Express. Amex had a grant program where they would give someone money to work on an idea. The catch? The idea had to have little or no chance of being immediately commercially viable. They wanted people to really reach and follow their passion.
Kids never consider their ideas or dreams within the crucible of commercial viability, or even reality for that matter. Our creativity has no bounds or restrictions. So the idea of adults looking at stupid ideas has some merit.
