... I sense a bit of insecurity on your part here. Do you work for a government
or large corporation in your other life?
Oldest survival trick in the book... think of something creative and irrelevant, get a kernel of interest then form a committee to discuss it, then a sub committee to research
it and report back, then a small trial. As long as it doesn't rock the main boat and isn't labelled R & D, where there is a requirement to report back, you can keep a shroud
of mystery over it. Nobody will ever fire you because nobody understands it. Kinda like a ponzi scheme without money
... or a pyramid!
Stick to the funny
stuff. It's what you're good at... and crackpot ideas
