Today on No Bad Ideas... Slapping! Hangovers! Sympathy magic! Operant conditioning! And more!

In today's first idea, Gabriel brings us the story of a man who was so addicted to Facebook that he had to hire someone to slap him every time he goes to the website. The team turns it into the story of a wealthy businessman who has to resort to extreme measures to keep himself productive and civil. Then, Sarah presents the story of a hangover-prevention item from ancient times. The squad works to turn it into the story of two archeologists who find their lives intertwined in some surprising (and very literal) ways.

All of that, plus: vanilla millionaires, getting into coding at the exact right moment, fake dating as a productivity hack, a classist ring system, and adding a third genre for no reason.
