When brainstorming, the early ideas can be stupid, or wildly
impractical. The purpose for throwing wild ideas in into the ring is
not to be taken seriously, it's for the hope that someone will hear the
bad idea, and it will spark within him (through free association) a good
one. That is my purpose.

No explanation should be necessary about something like that.
