Switch your lab project for a test tube full of Kool-aid. Then drink it.

Thats pretty good, but unfortunately most of the stuff that I play with in a test tube doesn't turn any color close to that of a cool aide drink mix! Speaking of cool aide, has anybody ever experienced a "coloring experience" from the stuff?

I strongly suggest to all who read this topic to heed my warning.

Practical jokes can be extremely fun. However, it doesn't take much for an innocent game between friends to turn into an ugly war (Take it from someone who has had that happen). Sometimes a joke ends up hurting someone, and then it isn't fun anymore. Just to throw some guidelines out there... Don't do pranks that may cause injury (nothing is less funny). Don't do pranks that may damage or destroy property (like tents and personal possessions). Don't attempt pranks that make fun of others (nobody likes to be laughed at).

Having said the above, I enjoy a good joke as much as the next person. Just think it through before you start, and respond to each "counter-attack" (for lack of a better expression). Also remember (I may have already said this) that an adult has seen just about every trick in the book. They may have even done some of them to others at one time or another. To be blunt, they have experience in such matters. Expect them to get you back and even do a better job than you did with a prank.

Smoke bombs... now those are fun practical jokes... just don't ever use them inside....

ok... so I broke my own rule... but when you live with a bunch of guys... it fun to throw one in the bathroom when someone is in there... especially when the bathroom is the size of a closet!

and it's fun to throw them in somebody's car right before they leave of an 8 hour trip...

In all these instances... let the fuse finish burning before you throw it anywhere! That way you almost eliminate any chance of starting a fire... but you still have to be extremely careful!

Hey rider... fire crackers also work well while somebody is in the bathroom, although I find the concept of a smoke bomb new and funny!

ya... see... smoke bombs don't explode... just don't use the big smoke bombs that will fill the whole bathroom... just use the little ones that only smoke for about 10 seconds...

well, i have a story that happened to me and my group.
We were on the northen California Camporee and a group snuck in to our camp and zip-tyed our tents. that alone sounds really usual and simple...but our tents were special. all of our clubs tents had TWO dooor and the teens from another group (yes, we knew exactly who did it) got both of them. Also, some of our TLT's were very light sleepers and were actually awake all night that night and didnt even suspect/hear a thing. The next morning our director got up and tried to get out, discovered the zip-tye and cut her way out. (she was pretty mad cause she had to use a razor blade and cut her finger, but she gave full permission to our TLT's to get the other group's teens back.) We discovered later the other teens probably used night vision goggles that they found. LOL, now that was funny.

That is a very common trick (tying tents shut), but if want to do it, I would suggest (based on logical thinking, not experience) that you use something that can be untied (like string or shoelaces). I suggest this for the very reason that was stated above. If you use something like zip-ties, people can be hurt.

I do find the fact that they might have used night vision interesting. Out of sheer curiosity, did your TLTs get the other group back? If so, in what way?

yes, i believe they did, and it involved a mass tenting of every single person involved. (tenting involves basically pulling down the tent so it collapses. as long as the doors arent zip-tied, its perfectly harmess and hilarious to watch.)

Some of the boys in my club tried that on the girls tents. But they got caught by our director....So it didn't work out as they had planned. :)

Hmmmm. This is the oldest one in the book but it still works. I am a tlt so this kid was giving me alot of trouble. I woke up like early in the morning and I tip toed over to his bed. I dressed in my pathfinders shirt and pants and I woke him up and said that it was 10:30 and he hadn't washed up yet and we were about to march. TO make a long story short he nearly ran outside to take a shower. That was when he realized it was four in the morning. :lol:

He promised to keep quiet and not bother me anymore as long as I didn't tell...

I like that one. The only problem is if they have a watch. Then they will be mad at you for waking them up.

Oh he was mad but he was also dumb enough to believe me so I told him I wouldn't tell if he listened and obeyed... I probably will try the trick on my brother when we go to Bass next year...

If I am stuck in his tent that is...

Well, to get the guys in my club up in the morning on teen retreat this last weekend, we had to employ a few methods that might be included in this practical joke thread. Snow on the face helped awaken several sleepy teens resisting the urge to awake.
