I expect your thoughts will be less 'foolish' tomorrow?Now I have given this a lot of thought. My chain lasts say 1500 miles so what I did is make it 20% longer by adding extra links, by my reckoning it will now last 1800 miles as each link will not have to go over the sprockets so often.
Ha ha - a mate of mine used to work in a bike shop and he always did that with the chain segments left over from chain replacements - he didn't have to buy a chain the whole time he worked there!I have saved all those extra links you get each time you buy a chain, I will put them all together and make a complete one.
