Eternal Fire of Stupid Ideas is a three sided obelisk sheeted with metal relief panels and backlit with LED lights. Atop the structure, the Eternal Flame of Stupidity burns brightly within the large dish mounted to the top of the tripod. Participants are able to submit their thoughts and stupid ideas by placing them inside the podium in front of the structure. These ideas will be evaluated by the Eternal Flame and if deemed exceptional or befittingly stupid the obelisk will react with a poof of flame, signifying its approval.
