Re: "Let me stir-fry an idea in your thought-wok"

the thought wok one and the ideas cake one are so awful they go round to funny I have never heard either of them before, but can so imagine the type of person who would say such things

Re: "Let me stir-fry an idea in your thought-wok"

I kind of like the wok one. I'm sure it just made up. No one has possibly ever said that with a straight face.

Blue-Sky thinking drives me to drink! That's up there as the worst business non-sense speak in all the kingdoms.

No, but I did see a Powerpoint presentation that included the word "ideation", which is possibly the same concept ;-)

Just stop thinking in silos, that's not how you're going to move the big rocks.
