    Smile ultimate flawed idea

    Please, dear teachers and friends,

    what does 'ultimate flawed idea' mean?
    Does it's something to do with 'insight'?
    How do you call the act of having ideas in the middle of the night, at 3:00 am, for example?

    Thanks for replying!

    A flawed idea is an inadequate idea: an idea which has failed.

    The word ultimate takes it the highest degree inadequacy.

    ultimate flawed idea = very bad idea.

    I don't know a specific word or phrase for a late night idea. Here's information on an idiom which relates to the subject:
