24 Hour Museum, in honor of Museums and Galleries month, has conducted a poll asking readers what the worst ideas of all time are.
The atom bomb came in first with 51% of the vote.
Interestingly, reality TV came in 2nd!
Rounding out the Top 5 were capital punishment, plastic bags and credit cards.
Now I recognize that we have seen some lows on reality TV. Flavor of Love comes to my mind right away, though there are a number more. That being said, there actually is quite a bit of quality reality television, like Project Runway or Top Chef (or even perhaps American Idol), where people that might otherwise go unnoticed are given the opportunity to showcase their talent.
2nd worst idea of all time?? Sounds harsh, no?
