    I sat at the rear of the bus with all the ghetto people on the way home today. A girl was applying concealer on her ghettolicious boyfriend, who didn't really know what was going on. It was kind of funny.

    Nobody ever really remembers which day Daylight Savings Time occurred on, just that back in the day it was sometime in April, and in and around a Sunday. One year April Fool's fell on a Sunday, so half an hour or so before The Day came to an end, I helpfully reminded everybody on the IRC channel to not to forgot to set their clock forward an hour.

    The next day I come back to the channel to find that I made one guy miss his first class of the first week of school. Generally you lose your place in the class if you don't show up for the first day. Luckily the guy didn't lose his spot, but I loled regardlessly.

    It hides the meth-face.

    Although joke's on her - she's making it more difficult to get to those sweet still-consumbale meth deposits that build up under the lesions.

    the historical answer is that i drew a seris of pictures called 'the plan' that featured crude stick men and blueprints

    anytime i put myself on one, i just put a K on one of the guys to stand for Knob

    then i just started using that guy in other pictures, stick dude with a K on his chest but it was visually boring so i grabbed a random color and filled him in

    the grey was distinctive enough that i dropped the K



    but that isn't as funny as melanoma

    I always loved this one.

    i think you should fill it half with vinegar, and half with a baking soda/water solution.

    that way when it all busts and mixes together it'll be like a sixth grade science fair

    Umm... we filled a guys toilet with gelatine once, and covered it in a thin layer of water. Someone pooped in it before the night was over.

    ...like I said in the "Lying or not" thread, we also poured melted marshmallows down someones ass.

    uh... a few weekends ago, we tricked a guy into drinking semen (which was mixed into his beer)

    and tonight, we have a tray full of jello shooters laced with laxatives for a party with 100 people at least (it will take place in a house with 2 bathrooms).

    Those last two are not really funny. They are probably illegal.

    The first is gold.

    I had plans to make a really nice dinner for my boyfriend

    For dessert, I would carry out a huge chocolate cake. He'd be so excited and delighted, until I turned it so he could see the top of the cake. In icing, I would write "I'm Pregnant", with my grandmother's wedding ring on the top layer of the cake.

    I decided against it.

    I set up a proxy server on the local network, and configured it so if you went to it with the URL http://something.com, it would request something.com itself, then display it. I also set it up with a DNS server, which would always return its own IP address.

    Next, I set up some filters so it would flip all the pages upside-down before displaying them. It would also download images, flip them, and cache the flipped images.

    Step 3, I modified my brother's network settings to use that server for DNS requests.


    TL; DR version: I turned every page on the internet upside-down.

    Put all that in an executable for download, and you will be immortalized.

    I've since lost the configuration. I plan to at some point make a Firefox extension that will do the same thing, but there's obviously not enough time before this year's April Fool's. If you know anybody who can configure BIND and Apache they could probably set it up for you.

    Totally the best kind of pranks. One guy at my school took apart a bunch of mice and installed a little circuit so they would randomly "pause" every couple minutes, then put them in the computer lab. Much fun was had by all trying to figure out why the computers were freezing without any load.

    better yet, just get a USB wireless mouse and stick the USB dongle on a computer when nobody is looking. Then sit patiently and wait for someone to use the computer, and every couple of minutes just move the mouse real fast to the top right corner and click to close their current window. Don't do it too much, as they'll catch on, but every five or ten minutes should be just enough to drive them up the fucking wall.
