Thread Name: BS: School Pranks?
Subject: RE: BS: School Pranks?
I guess I missed something going to French school... we didn't have any of this great stuff. All we had one year was a chemistry professor who misplaced a decimal point, or something, and put WAY too much of potassium something into the bowl of water. It was just supposed to turn the water pink with either acid or base (can you tell I was a science mahjor?) and when she saw it fizzle, panicked and ran, leaving us there with the explosion. One kid actually teleported out the door in fear - he was outside running back IN before most of us had even hit the floor. Maybe someone did her calculations for her, but nobody took credit, at least...

But here at work, I know there was someone who had a new car, and used to park it across 4 parking places so that nobody would nick it pulling around. (For you brits, in the US you nick a car when you dent it, not when you steal it.) Anyway, somebody from Manufacturing went out there with the shrinkwrapping machine and shrinkwrapped his car. He was afraid to scratch the paintwork and wouldn't use a knife to get rid of the wrapping... so it took him HOURS... but he didn't park across parking places after that!
