Would I not I sneer of an invention of yours.
Hardly a brilliant invention, using magnets to float things off the ground is a common thing, particularly in regards to maglev trains. Besides in order to work on the street you'd need magnets implanted into pavements/sidewalks. Yeah, that'll happen, just to make skaters more entertained Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
And while there might be a correlation between inventiveness and eccentricity that doesn't mean that if you're wacko you're a good inventor. You don't see many people in mental institutions for schizophrenia inventing things, other than the voices in their heads.
Criticising someone's idea doesn't require the person doing the criticising to have an alternative idea. Plus it is better to realise one hasn't got a good idea than to have a bad idea and go around extolling its supposed virtues. Something no idea is better than a stupid one.
