    If you think a neti pot for that stuffy nose is just what the doctor ordered, think again (choking on salt water and mucus is a horrible way to go).

    If you indulge your midlife crisis by going whole-hog Harley, you may look darn good in those leathers (but imagine your disgrace when that hard-core biker gang that lures you into their criminal shenanigans turns out to be poseur frat boys from Yale).

    If you settle down on a rainy night for a friendly game of Risk with your pals, you may think it's all in the name of good fun (but when your ubercompetitive streak kicks in and you end up winning the game but losing your house, your job, and your wife in the process, you may regret it. At least take a shower now.).

    These are just three of the good ideas gone horribly wrong that you'll find inIt Seemed Like a Good Idea . . . . In this one-of-a-kind cautionary guide, prognosticators Meghan Rowland and Chris Turner-Neal have looked into their crystal ball to predict all the unexpected dire consequences of your actionsone unmitigated disaster at a time.

    So go ahead, dare to dream bigbut before you leap into the abyss, check out It Seemed Like a Good Idea . . . and save your future ass.
