Back in the late 70's I was working in computer ops. Whenever we were on night shift, all hell would be let loose. When we got bored, we would run around blasting all and sundry with CO2 fire extinguishers. (Not a particularly very wise thing to do). One night I went below the false floor of the computer room and fired a very cold jet of gas through the air conditioning grille, giving one of my fellow ops a freezing pair of balls.

One evening (we alternated between shift patterns) we went to relieve the day shift only to be told that the toilet was out of commission. Upon asking why, we were told that some pillock on the previous night shift had picked up a fire extinguisher with the intention of blasting someone, only to realise too late that it wasn't the gas variety. He had then ran through the computer room and up the stairs with foam spraying from the extinguisher, and finally stuffed the tube down the toilet.

A while later, a security guard went to the toilet. He opened the door and was immediately drenched by a wall of foam.

The errant op was fired the next morning. We decided not to feck around with the extinguishers any more.

Cubicle pranks I especially like....

1. Removing, and reorganizing someone's keyboard keys....

2. Take a screenshot of the person's desktop, then use that image as the wallpaper, and hide the taskbar and their icons... They'll move the mouse, but nothing will click or open, hehe....

I once pissed in a garbage can in school and rolled it down the cafeteria stairs.

Pulled various alarms, set off firecrackers (the sound amplifies by about 10 times in a hallway), basically stupid things like that. Nothing too serious.

Back in high school a bunch of friends and myself intensionally spread ridiculous rumors about myself just to prove the point that you shouldn't believe everything you hear. Well, when it was finally time to come clean no one would believe that it was all a gag. I suppose that you could see it as back firing, but at least I weeded out all of the gullible morons from possible friends.

We did 3 things to one of the techs where I used to work
1- placed tape on his ethernet connection
2- Opened his mouse and placed a tiny piece of tape on the sensor that tells the wheel which way to go
3 the best for last.
Limited his ram to 20 megs ...he NEVER figured that one out, so he formatted his drive.

For you folks that live in cold wetaher areas, here is one that will drive them nuts.
You know those air tanks you can buy to use if your tire has a flat?
Well you can fill them half full of water, then the rest with air, then go to your "friends" car, and turn the tank upside down so the water is at the bottom. Let some air out of his tire, then procced to fill the tire back up with water (this is best done on a very very cold night--IE below freezing)
In the morning when they drive away they will hear "thunk thunk thunk as the chunk of ice rotates in the tire

Or......get some deer scent (hunters use it) and spray in the air intake vents on the hood, when they turn on the air/heat phewwwww

When living in Colorado with my brother, an aquaintence came to us who worked with us at the tool factory. He was in tears and told us that his roomate was on coc aine and was going crazy. This roomate had gone through the apt. breaking all the light bulbs looking for bugs. He even took the heads off of his little girl's dolls looking for bugs. Then he came after my aquaintence with a knife and said he thought he was a narc. This was more than my aquaintence could take, so he came to us looking to crash at our apt until he could get one of his own. Well before we went over to move him we took out a garage opener that was broken and removed the circuit board. Then we took a sharpie marker and wrote on one end "PROPERTY OF KGB DO NOT REMOVE". On the other end we wrote "ACME BUG COMPANY". When we got over to the house we took some epoxy putty and but it on the bottom of the board and slapped it up under the kitchen table. Then we moved our new friend out of danger. Six or seven years passed when our friend came back and said he had seen the coke fiend and the coke fiend had asked him if he had bugged his house. We laughed until we cried!!

My teacher's prank in college.

He played Baseball and sort of had a bad coach, who made him run a lot for small mistakes, but did nothing himself. One day his coach found a golf ball in the baseball field and he decided to hit the ball using a baseball bat.

He did and the ball went about 200 feet in air and was falling toward my teacher and his friend, who were walking toward the coach. My teacher told his friend, whom he called Sause, to fall down and act dead, at his command and Sause did. The coach seeing this came sprinting towards them.

His teacher believed that he actually killed sause, and sause lied there trying not to laugh and my teacher played along saying "You killed him, coach." "Poor Sause."

After a while Sause began to laugh and the whole act was up. The result, my teacher and his friend made someone, who rarely walked fast to run incredibly fast and the beautiful part is that the coach didn't and couldn't punish them, becasue it was his fault, from that day on, he wasn't so tough on his students, especially sause and my teacher.

My prank on my parents

I switched the mouse 's left and right button keys, so that whenever they tried to right-click, it opened.

Some drunken moron pissed outside in dormitory suite (a hall housing four seperate dorms), so I decided to do my part in exacting revenge...

I found out who it was fairly easily, and went up to his room early (5 AMish) one morning, while I assumed he would be asleep (he was), carrying with me a bag of various useful things I had arranged the night before.

First, I scotch-taped several very offensive gay porn images to his door; they were quite large and easily noticed. Then, I proceeded to cover said pictures with a thick layer of clear gloss varnish.

They had to belt-sander the things off. It was spectacular.

oh man, those are all classic. i especially like yours Gazrok... i'm keeping them in mind

another good one is to have someone lean against a door and slip pennies inbetween the frame and the door. this puts pressure on the latch, keeping it from opening. i haven't done it, because i've heard stories of doors having to be broken down, and i don't want to have to buy a new one...

one i have done though is similar to Tetsuo-51's... fill a garbage can with water, lean against someone's door, bang on said door. make sure the door opens inward though.

One of my friends in High School drove a tiny car, a Triumph Spitfire. For weeks, every day, a few of us would lift it with a couple of trolley jacks and move it to different spots in the parking lot. He though someone was taking it out of gear and rolling it ,so he bought "The Club" and started to use that. We let him think it worked for another week then moved the car out onto the sidewalk and balanced it on 4 unopened soda cans, one under each tire.
The best part was watching him come out, locate the car, walk around a couple of times to assess the situation, push the car forward off the cans, and calmly drive away. We enjoyed that more than if he had freaked out.
