    First off, I hope this is an appropriate forum to post this thread.

    So I want to know: what do you think are the silliest ways are that someone can promote their website?

    Here is my idea (I don't recommend actually doing this):
    Go to BestBuy, and find a computer - act like you are interested in buying it. When the salesperson asks if you need any help, tell them you are just looking and wait for them to walk way. Open the web browser and load your website. Leave it open. Now walk to the next computer and repeat this process until all of the computers show your website. If you are really feeling sneaky, bookmark it on all of the computers.

    Like I said, these don't have to be good or even moral ideas, they just have to be silly "what-if" ideas.

    Write a web browser software that blows everything else away. When it becomes really popular, activate the back-door on the million+ downloaded copies so that everyone who now loads it up gets your website by default! :-D

    Even better / sillier - write a Firefox add-on that all it does is load your webiste. Call it "Shameles self-promotion" :-D

    Write graffiti on the inside of a bathroom stall: "For a good time, call Steve: (123) 456-7890".

    When people call that number, they hear a recording "Visit www.mywebsite.com" :-D

    Key www.mydomain.com into the side of your car.

    Then call the cops and tell them it was vandalism.

    Dozens of them will probably visit while investigating the crime!

    Walk through a parking lot and pick out all the dirty cars... Write your domain name backwards in the rear windshield. When the people look through their rear-view mirrors, they'll see it!

    Buy a netbook, a high powered projector, and a 12 volt car battery. Wire it up so you have a portable projection station. Then run around your neighborhood stealing your neighbors' wireless network connections, load up your website in their yards, and project it through their windows while they're eating dinner and watching TV! :-D

    Build a 20-foot tall perfect recreation of your website out of Legos on your front lawn.

    Call the local news station to report about it.
