      Time magazine had a poll for the worst ideas of the century. Here they are from Worst down to the least. % Prohibition % That Teensy Programming Decision That Led to the Y2K Bug % Geraldo's Opening of Capone's Vault % Telemarketing % The Jerry Springer Show % "Mr. Simpson, Step Forward and Try on the Glove".
