(Not so) new brilliant ideas

Periodically, I read of some new brilliant idea for solving some large outstanding problem by some illustrious internet intellectual who has given this as much thought as went into breakfast. They couldn't be bothered to look into the details to it is how it currently works or was tried and failed in the past. No, that is for the less talented to concern themselves with. After all, they are so bursting with endless new brilliant ideas, that getting them down is all they have time for. As long as some sycophants are there to echo them and laud them on their perspicuity rather than critically examine them and the details they don't rest on.
