I won't give any suggestions, but a reiteration of an earlier post I made. Be careful. Not only can retaliation get out of hand, but if you are doing it so someone older than you, they may have experience with a prank and it my backfire on you.

I will... I'm not too insane/crazy, my motto when it comes to pranks is it better be harmless and funny to all involved, even the people it happened to... but my club needs a little livening up... i mean, all the staff are retiring next year they're so old... and they tried convince me to become director next year (at least i'm going away to college... i dont want to be director yet... i'm only 17!) . The club is pretty dead though... I'm just trying to make sure the kids fall in love with it... create memories, etc. pulling harmless pranks is one way of doing that. I'm kinda counting on reiteration... one of my favorite memories involves camping and planning elaborate pranks on the guys in our club (which the director gave us permission for as long as it was harmless.). I want these kids to love pathfinders, get their friends to join, and the club to grow. Thats the reason i'm planning this... does that make sense?

I'm not a teen, and have avoided posting here for a long time because of that. But I think you guys might overlook it this time.

The best prank I ever pulled was when I was in college when I waterproofed my roommate's towel with a can of Scotchguard. Anyhow, he took a shower, turned off the water, and attempted to towel off. In spite of his efforts, he was still soaking wet, and the towel was still bone dry. It didn't take him too long to figure out what had happened or who was responsible.

This only works on an old towel - unless you are willing to use several cans of Scotchguard (maybe). Luckily, most people bring ratty towels on camping trips, so the opportunity for mischief is ripe.

And I thought I was a serious practical joker. That is an awesome one!

hehe, my brother did one on both my mom and I. Most of you heard about that virus worm that the news was talking about around the end of march. Well, my brother found a picture on the internet of a virus pop up notification, and photoshoped it into the desktop background. So when we clicked on it, it seemed like the computer was frozen. It was pretty funny, especially when my mom found it. Other than that my april 1st was quiet.
