I'm not saying you, or anyone else should do this, but... in a theoretical way, say that someone unplugged an office machine, say a printer. Now if a staple were to be placed between the prongs of the power cord, that would be dangerous. And if the cord was left lying on the floor, as if it had been inadvertently unplugged by someone, that would also be dangerous.
For you. When you watch them plug it in. Sparks will fly and their face will go pale. And that is a bad thing, ok. Because you'll be the only one sitting there going "what?, what happened?" like an idiot. And everyone else will be cracking up and that's how he will know it was you that did it. Theoretically speaking.

That is odd, the first frame clearly says c1986 yet Bart is on that t-shirt. One could think that maybe this group just didn't update their copyright on the title screen but the Simpson didn't get their own show until the end of 1989 and at least a year before Bartmania kicked in so it would be odd to use a 3 year old title screen. I think maybe Obama is trolling us with his time machine again.

This is my favorite- Find whatever you're target is passionate about- politics, racism, religion- and send a donation to the opposite faction in his or her name. Wait a few weeks and send another small donation to a similar organization. Go all-out and buy them a magazine subscription or two. Your victim will get on all sorts of mailing lists and email lists. They'll get thank you letters and offers and all kinds of marketing materials from their perceived enemies. $5 or $10 here and there goes a long way to drive your mark crazy and they'll blame it on a mix-up and never suspect you.If it's a boss or coworker even better because you can guage the impact.

We used to put drops of super glue on the buttons of the drinking fountains at the mall. There also used to be a number you could dial to make a pay phone ring back. That was always good for some lulz too.

similar to the pins in the cable prank, but not dangerous:

I took a really sharp knife and cut a 1/4" slit in a coworker's network cable. (we didn't have wifi at the time) I then took a small pair of diagonal cutters and snipped a few of the conductors. The slit was unnoticeable when it was closed. He spent a few hours messing with his computer settings trying to connect to the network before he tried a new cable.

Back in the landline days there was this urban legend/CSB:

A man came home in the wee hours of the morning after a tryst with his secretary. The next morning he told his wife to be out of the house by the time he got home from work.

The first thing the wife did before she started packing was call the time and temp in Tokyo and leave the phone off the hook.

Hilarity purportedly ensued.

I was always partial to the idea of taking an entry hall light, the kind you first turn on when you enter a home or office, and removing the bulb.
Carefully remove the glass but leave the filament intact.
Attack an M-80 fuse or other suitably sized explosive/firecracker to the bulbs filament and reinstall the light. Tape firecracker to ceiling off need be.
Next tape a sheet of plastic, 2 foot by 2 foot to the ceiling over the bulb and firecracker.
Make sure it's going to stay attached to the ceiling because it had to hold whatever you decide should be stored on the plastic sheet. Be it paint, mud, bugs, farm animal fecal matter, flour our anything else you want to have all over your hypothetical victim because when they enter and turn on that light.....

A pill bottle full of castor oil rammed down the tail pipe smokes horribly.
A grasshopper in the gas tank will randomly clog the fuel line and then float back out.
A rock inside a hubcap makes for a terrible racket
A zip tie on your driveshaft will make a terrible racket
An open car window in the summer time is begging for a sardine.
An unlocked door makes it easy to put a block of limburger cheese inside the door panel
A gluestick laid on a windshield wiper in the summertime will melt and glue the wiper down solid.
Lapping powder inside of a hollowed out oil filter will polish the pistons right out of an engine
A generous donation of gay magazines to the public library in the name of a local asshole pastor is always appreciated
One should always throw handfuls of catnip seeds into yards of people you don't like

Back in college, a way to deal with boredom was to dial 1-800-(seven letter obscene phrase) until you found one that wasn't a phone sex line and then leave a message on the answering machine.

I actually did the 976 number thing to this asshole in high school. He had stolen a stereo out of the car of one of friends. He had a party at his parents house a few months later so we went to his parents room and called a 976 number that was a recording and left it off the hook for hours. At $2.99 a minute that got expensive. Then we took all of his mom and dad's left shoes so they couldn't even make a pair of mismatched shoes. In hindsight the shoe thing was a dick move because his parents didn't do anything wrong but at the time I thought it was brilliant.

For those who wonder about the date: I used to have the book this video was based on, and it definitely came out in the 80s. So the video may be later, but the material is from the 80s

A friend of mine almost lost an eye after being assaulted by this quasi crazy homeless dude in the town where we went to college. The dude never got charged with anything but one night we were in a late night restaurant where he had fallen asleep at the next table. Without anyone noticing I managed to steal his boots and, while my friends were scheming as to what revenge we should extract, filled them with ketchup and mustard from the table. I even asked for more ketchup and mustard from the waitress after I emptied the two full ones into his boots. Emptied four full squeeze bottles and managed to place the boots back under his table without anyone noticing. Then we got the hell out of there.

if someone put chain through my car window and scratched the crap out of it, someone would find their car at the bottom of the river. These aren't pranks by today's standard, these are serious criminal acts.

Also things weren't nearly as traceable back then.

He had to. I don't know if you are old enough to remember but phone bills used to show every call with date and time. A multi hour phone call to a porn line when your parents were out of town was quite easy to figure out.

Ok, one I actually did: buddy leaves car unlocked all the time in high school parking lot, so go out one day, pour really generous amounts of flour into the A/C vents, wipe clean, set fan on max. Wait with group of friends for buddy to go to drive home. Instant internal car whiteout, buddy comes out coughing and screaming, good times.

Oh wait, another one: buddy in college keeps car key separate from all other keys, which is particularly stupid considering he's a total stoner. So of course he loses it like every week and has to have new one made. One time we found one, but didn't give it back. Instead we started moving his car, at first just a space or two, then to other rows, by the end of the semester to entirely different parking lots. Buddy thought he was losing his mind, it made for near daily entertainment.

I hope he did pay, but it's his parents that are actually on the hook for that expense.

I can imagine, but it's the parents that are technically on the hook for that shiat. But, meh. Just sayin' that both were dickish, not just the shoes. Teenage pranks usually are (including some of my own stunts)

I have done this for (to) MN relatives who are tea-baggers and were constantly sending us internet screeds. The Franken campaign was grateful for the support.

My new favorite to play on friends who are meticulous with their back statements: note their account number when they write us a check and then deposit small, random amounts of cash in said account.
The change from under the couch cushions or in the cupholder in the car are handy for such things.

At a previous job, some wag put my boss on an x-rated mailing list so he would penis enlargement and sex aid circulars in his company mailbox in the mail room almost every week. Used to piss him off to come back to his office after a couple weeks on the road and find a pile of these mixed in with his other mail on his desk.

Wish I'd thought of it.

Used to work in a industrial complex. One of the best gags was to take blue dye and put it out on the earpiece of the desk phone on someone's desk out in the shop. Wait for them to come to work, and call them, they would put the phone up to their ear, bingo..instant blue ear. Lasted for weeks. Or, tack weld their lunchbox to the metal table they set it on, fill up their locker with grease, completely wrap their tool chest in 1000 mile a hour tape, fill up their lunchbox with metal shot, etc. Ah..sighs...i miss those times.
 
2012-07-20 04:53:47 AM
Ah, i forgot one, when you left the shop after work, wear your gloves, but have a nice portion of dirty axle grease in hand. Walk by your buddies car and put the glob of nasty on the underside of his door handle. He comes out after work, freshly showered, and grabs the handle...instant dirty grease hand. Back into the shop he goes to wash off.

A friend in high school had a 1978 Corolla, a real piece of shiat. He took the wiper fluid nozzle and pointed out so he could spray people on the side of the road. We then filled it with our piss. I'll never forget when we sprayed this father and son who were standing in their front yard. The piss was probably a month old at this point. We all looked back and the dad was screaming and flipping us off almost immediately. I'm sure they initially thought it was a water gun prank before they realized the horror.

The pins in the cable thing works well.. but never have done it in a power cable... and never would consider it.. BUT back quite a few years ham and cb operators would do that to peoples antenna cables.. which can ruin equiptment and be a nightmare to find the problem. Also works on cable for cable tv..

P.S. this whole video is full of WTF!
