Buzzing with crazy ideas

It is fun and energetic to read but whether or not I will actually use the suggested exercises remains to be see. Perhaps i'm not open-minded enough and admittedly my creativity only goes as far as what I can see will be practical. To this end challenges such as thinking what you can do with a turkey carcass don't come naturally - although my other half's suggestion of using it as a cycle helmet made me chuckle quite a bit. Like I said, it is fun, and will certainly get people talking. In this sense I think the challenges would work well as ice-breakers.
