Translation:Masz pomysł?

can you say: "masz ideę"?

That would sound very surprising, in Polish "idea" is rather used for some really grand ideas, like the idea that all people should be equal. Kind of a philosophy term. So a simple "maybe we should try using a screwdriver?" to pomysł, nie idea.

There has to be some kind of 'rule' / guide on the adding of 'po'. Myśl / pomyśl? What is the difference and how should I understand how and when to use each?

verb "myśl" is appropriate for present 'thinking' eg. On myśli o swojej żonie. -- verb "pomyśl" is appropriate for future 'thinking' eg. Ja pomyślę nad rozwiązaniem. --
