Open Source Idea

I’m going to borrow a page from and post an idea I had that I don’t have time to follow through on, at least not for a very long time. I would post it under a creative commons license, but since you can’t really copyright an idea anyway, that seems a bit redundant, so just consider this open source, and recognize that whatever you choose to do with it, I still have the right to do my own thing with it somewhere down the road, if the spirit moves me. 😉

I am so very, very sick of the phrase, “Obesity epidemic.” Dear Media: Obesity is not a virus.

Except, what if it was?

And what if a scientist discovered this, and developed a vaccine? But the Diet Industry, which has a huge stake in everyone staying fat, will try to stop the vaccine at any cost. And what’s the source of the virus, anyway? Evolution? Invading aliens? A vast, corrupt conspiracy?

If you decide to take this idea and run with it, I would love to see what you come up with.

Happy writing!
