Geese for the homeless Printer Friendly Version
Problem #1: During the summer months here in Minnesota, it seems that there is geese everywhere and goose poo everywhere (expecialy in suburban areas). I hear of people going to North/South Dakota and having an unlimited bag limit on their goose harvests (I bet most of the geese they harvest go to waste). It seems that we have a problem with an over-population of geese. It's just gross walking around a metro lake that is peppered with goose sh*t everywhere! We simply dont need all of these geese.
Problem #2: A lot of homeless people and they need food.
Solution: Why don't we have a team of professional certified people that go around in various metro areas and humanely harvest some of these geese. Also set up hunts in the Dakota's that are cheaper for hunters if they donate some of their harvest. If we can thin out some of these geese, maybe we won't have so much wasted game from people bringing home 50 geese from a unlimited bag hunt and not eating it. I certainly don't think that this would really impact the goose population too much if the DNR helps monitor the program. The geese can go to shelters and be served to help feed people in need. Goose certainly isn't like "phesant under glass", but to a hungry homeless person, it has more nutrition and better taste than a dirty sock. Beggars can't be choosers.
Reward: The opportunity to go on a "Donation Hunt" for free.

Primary School Climbing Frame Printer Friendly Version
Children in primary school typically want to climb on the roof. Usually this is a dreadful crime, but must it be?
What about a low, single-story primary school with a roof garden/ playground accessed by ladders, rope ladders, fireman's poles and slides that all lead down into classrooms, the playground, or a central courtyard? There could be wobbly rope bridges from one classroom to another, jungle swings across the courtyard, and whatever else the architect's imagination can dream up?
Reward: The pleasure of seeing it built and enjoyed.

World Problem Solving Agency Printer Friendly Version
If everyone on the planet who can afford to give to a World Donation Program once a year then, we could end all problems. We would set up one conglomerant of foundations and donation Companies and save tons on advertising and form a board overseeing the distribution of funds to the needy here and around the world in attempt to help cure and treat cancer, hunger, handicapped and all things we think about but never do anything about it.
If we had this conglomeration it would be Worldly accreditted and recognized and we all know why we don't donate, it is because it is troublesome. If we have people coming to our homes or having self addressed stamped return envelopes and all they ask for wass one dollar, we would all donate. Or at least I know I would.
Reward: Credit
