Holiday Sponsors Printer Friendly Version
How about opening the big holidays for sponsorship? (After all, every event has a sponsor these days!) "Independence Day" would then be called "Microsoft Day", "Thanksgiving" could be named "Wal-Mart Holidays", and so on. The holidays would be auctioned once a year and given to the company paying most. The money from the auction could then be used for something special like buying school books, feeding the poor or building social housing.
Reward: Keep this a welfare idea, and don't use the money for crap like highways or armed satellites.

Rent a Cop Printer Friendly Version
Where are the police when you see a traffic violation? Nowhere, that's where.
I propose the provincial/state governments create a course for the above average driver (someone with the maximum amount of merits on their license) to take to learn the basics of vehicle trafficing and violations.
Once the civilian has passed the course, s/he could be licenced in thier city and province/state and allowed to pull over and ticket other civilian offenders.
This system could be based on comission renumeration only so that the government pays a small percentage fee based on the ticket.
It's a win-win situation. The civilian makes money and the government makes more money as they are catching more motorists break the law, than they would have due to insufficient policing of traffic. Also, they could charge money for teaching the registered course.
Reward: I'd love to see this in effect anywhere! No reward needed at the streets would be safer for everyone!

Double Wide Sliced Bread Printer Friendly Version
With the ease of making sandwhiches with double wide bread, it saves time on making them by adding the factor that you only need to fold them over or you can have two sufaces covered with the same thing like peanut butter with jam or butter in the middle which, tastes better. It also prevents the sandwhich spreads from squeezing out the bottom. You could add a predesigned dent between the two halves to easily tear apart the two halves for toasting.
Reward: Credit
