    In fact, there are thousands of people who have to re-invent the wheel every day. We call them students. :-)

    Its not a bad idea if you can greatly improve whatever you are reinventing.

    i'll keep that in mind if you ever need help. & the man who invented the automobile should have first reinvented the wheel...perhaps then, there would have never been an automobile. or the man who made the starship that traveled to another planet...should have first reinvented the booster systems that got it off the earth.
