I just bought this shirt on the awesome website threadless.com. Today I had a meeting with the technical VP for a new project at work, and guess what he was wearing..? Yep, the “Well, this just really sucks” Scrabble shirt! Which led me to today’s idea. A little website I like to call wellthisjustreallysucks.com.
The premise is ridiculously simple. People post something that really sucks. It might be a picture, a short video, or a short story (500 characters or less). Users can flip through the various submissions, read about things that really suck, and vote on the suckiness of each situation.
For example, here’s a potential story that could be submitted (taken from the Darwin awards):
“The feet of Jason and Sara, both 21, were found protruding from a deflated, huge helium advertising balloon. Jason was a college student, and Sara attended community college, but apparently their education had glossed over the importance of oxygen.
The pair pulled down the 8′ balloon, and climbed inside. Their last words consisted of high-pitched, incoherent giggling as they slowly passed out and passed into the hereafter.“
Another example (from IMDB):
Now that just really sucks.
Something happened today that didn’t suck, stay tuned for more details!
