What kind of stuff have you done solely to amuse yourself?

An example: Years ago when I lived in a house and was just a young stallion frollicking through the world, I decided one morning that I wanted to make my neighbor angry. Where does the idea of "I wanna mess with this guy just cuz!" come from? I don't know, but ain't it great that kids have it all the time?

So every morning like at 6AM, I would go over there and plant a stick in the middle of his yard. It wasn't even a big stick, it was like a foot tall and half an inch wide, but you see, his lawn was perfect, and seeing this damn crooked stick in the middle of all this level grass annoyed the hell out of him.

So, the first day at like 7AM, on his way out of the house to his car, he noticed the stick and yanked it out, then threw it onto the sidewalk and drove off. I ran out and got the stick, then planted it back where it was, and walked to school.

Next day, I did the same thing, and he muttered something before tossing the stick again and driving off.

Third day, before he tossed the stick again, he stopped by it and looked around carefully. Then he slowly pulled it out, all the while still looking around, like how birds do when they're eating and they keep popping their heads up to see if anything is going to eat them, lol.

Next few days were like the second, a mutter and off he went.

Then one day, he was noticeably pissed and even called out his wife to show her what he was cussing about. She looked like she cared about as much we do about global warming, shit happens man, get over it, lol. This time he broke the stick and threw it in the trash bin. I mean, goddamn man, this stick has been bothering you for WEEKS, and NOW you decide to break it!? LOL!!! Undaunted by my fallen stick, I dug around at school that day for a similar stick, and used it that night, then made sure to take back the one he threw away so he thought it was the same stick. xD

When he came home and saw the ghost-stick, he was like NO! NOOO! (exaggerating, har har) and ran over to his trash bin and freaked/got more pissed when he didn't see it in there. He ran into the house and I started to hear yelling, sounded like "WATCHING THE HOUSE!" and "THE **** DO YOU DO ALL DAY!*" then I saw the guy's son storm out of the house all pissed and walk down the street with the mom and guy behind him yelling more stuff.

Of course, I was laughing my ass off, and had been doing so the entire time this went on, but now I see it was a pretty messed-up thing to do. What if he was taking out his anger on his family? What if the guy became unhinged and murdered his whole family over it? lol! Good times... xD

I can't say most of the stuff I did when I was younger cause I'm afraid I end up in jail. God I was so stupid.

When I'm talking to my girlfriend sometimes I pretend she's yelling and ask her Why is she yelling when she's just talking in a normal pace. It annoys the Bejesus out of her.

That's a harmless but funny prank.

That remind me one day a friend of mine wanted to get some food at the drive through in Burger King where this girl I like used to work and I got out and order it on foot on the drive through and pick it up on the window I remember everyone was like what the f&^K? but hey that little stupid prank got me her number and a date. We dated for a while.

I'm a Pepsi drinker & I used to work with someone that had a Coke antenna ball and license plate frame on his car. I used to either take them off and put them in his window that he'd leave slightly open or just turn the frame thingy upside down. Don't know if he ever found out who was doing it or what his reaction was to the whole thing.

He was 18, and I was 21. He was a little scrawny guy, but he was sooooo cute.

2003? After he cried, I gave him a ticket went to Dumpsville and he was the only one there.

I told him, "I was only kidding. Don't have kittens!"

He said, "It wasn't funny and you're one mean little person"

And I told him, "Well listen you, I'm good enough I'm strong enough and gosh darnit people like me!"

Never saw him again.

Million-dollar challenge, find the pink in a church! Even the red in the stained glass windows seems to be stained darker so as to never confuse them with pink.

I had a friend in high school who was mild-to-moderate obsessive compulsive. Not the OCD/anal-retentive type like us collectors are, I mean the Rain Man type.

Anyways, he had this tick or whatever where he counted things. If he was being a dick, I'd casually mention a repetitive item nearby, such as patterns in tiles ("Gee, there are a lot of tiles in here.") or dotted lines in the road as I was driving ("Man, those dots are coming fast."). I'd often speed up or slow down in that scenario to throw his counting rhythm off, or complicate it by adding in a question that required more advanced math ("Man, I wonder how many lines I pass per minute?").

HAR HAR. Hey, I wonder what he'd do if you said "Gee, I wonder how many bees are in that hive?" Do you think he would have said "screw you!" or actually gone up there and counted? If he would have refused, then there you go, you could have been the first to find a cure for his disorder! (or his "over-order"? lollolololol!)

I used to write or construct those ransom notes type things and send them to people I didn't like. You know where you cut out letters from papers and magazines. I also used to put flaming dog shit on people's door steps that bugged me. My buddy and I once put a cherry bomb into another kids mail box and blew it off his house.

5 years ago a group of friends and I got on top of my rooftop (I live in a main avenue) at night on Christmas and threw eggs at passing cars. That same night we went and took out the trash from the dumpster of this guy we didn't like and put it all in the trunk of his pick-up truck. After we jumped on his rooftop and egg his house. Did I mention we did this on Christmas. We recorded everything too. Wish my friend didn't record his wedding over it.

In the Navy quite a few years ago, we wrote our names on our shirts. Had a guy named "FULK".

Every night, i would draw an extra line on the L. Ruined all of his shirts. Seriously, i did this at least a dozen times.

To this day, if he knew it was me, he would go into a blinding rage and kill me. It would be worth it.

In highschool, my friends and I thought it was pretty funny to trade rural green mailboxes on one side of town with the same type from the other side of town. I only wish that I could see the looks on peoples faces when they tried to put their key into their lock to get their mail and it did not fit; then upon closer inspection they would see that their padlocks were not the same as the day before.

I used to do the locked bathroom stall door thing too. We went all jr. parkour, used the toilet for a foot hold then over the top we went.

we used to translate nonsense in german class in high school.
I started this classic bit though. I translated nut-sack into German. We had this little old lady that had no clue. some of the guys in that class loved to yell it out for no reason. Well she got this quizzical look on her face and would say in front of the class "Whats a nut sack"?

If I came out of a bathroom and there was someone waiting I'd tell them the toilet seat was broke. Somebody put a hole in it.

Me and a friend did steal a road construction barrel one time and tried to put it on her basket ball coaches mailbox.

And Zoltron does sound like a fun chick.

I'll be honest, 95% of the day Im doing something retarded..or atleast thinking of it.

A few years back I worked for the town Water Dept...there was an old guy there that was completely neurotic and his wife was just as nuts. Every morning she would call at like 10 to 7 right before work started...and everyday at 7 he would get into the truck all mad at his wife.

So...I would get there like 5 min earlier while he was having coffee and dial the garage from the cell in my pocket, then get up and answer the phone and go.."hold on...Bill, phone, I think its your old lady"...all nervous he would get on the phone "hello? HELLO?"....then I would pull out my cell and in a womens voice be like "Billllllly...I dont wanna fight!"....and he would spaz out.

This lasted for about 2 months straight, until he chased me one day and almost had a heart attack doing so.

Fun stuff!

Oh Christ, I think I just lol'd for 5min straight. :D

Worst thing I ever did was to this girl at work who probably didn't deserve to be the victim of my boredom. She was wearing a hoodie with the hood down in the back, and every time she walked by I'd casually drop something into her hood. Pens, alchohol wipes, a bottlecap, cough drops. At the end of the night when she was leaving she pulled her hood up and had an avalanch of random crap raining down on her.

Then there was the time I came to work for Halloween with a unibomber hoodie and shades and a box of cereal with a knife stabbed through it (one guy, a former professional comedien, got the joke without me even having to say "cereal killer").

And then there was the time my supervisor (a 28yr-old going on 12) was acting up and I casually reached into my bag and started shooting him with a powered foam disc launcher.

And then there was the remote-controlled whoopee cushion.

So yeah. :)

Stole a sign with other drunken fools in college that read "Main Line Urology Clinic" and hung (read: drunkenly leaned) it against a sorority house.

We tried to do the same with a "Main Line Hooker Service" (for a very naive towing company) but it was too well bolted and we just scratched the bolts a bit.

On one occasion I tested the "no shoes no service" policy of a local convenience store by tying my shoes around my elbows. They didn't go for it.

I can't really remember anything else. And really, I mean ANYTHING else. I drank too much in college.

When I worked retail we had a tradition of pranking each other using the phones. We could call the other registers and pretend to be angry customers or eager customers willing to buy big ticket items. Being a department store you could watch the angry reactions or watch them crap their pants when they found out or when they thought it was real.

Some guys were real pros at doing this. I think one time I thought I was being pranked and went along with it or just didn't care and it really was two moron shade tree mechanics. (Nothing against shade tree guys these two really were pushing the limits of common sense).

We used to have a game on Thursday nights. The whole town where my cousin lives is laid out on a grid, and Friday morning is garbage day.

So Thursday nights, we'd get in my pickup, and drive around the neighborhood. We'd go real slow past a garbage can, and whoever was in the passenger seat would lean out the window and grab a garbage can as we rolled past (which wasn't always easy, some of those cans weighed a TON!), then we'd pick up speed until we passed a mailbox, and just drop the garbage can sideways on top of the mailbox as hard as we could.

To this day, not much makes me smile like an exploding garbage can knocking a mailbox over.

Driving up to Mcdonals/Burger King and trying to order things from another fast food chains menu... god that pisses people off.
