Very cool stories here- Yep Baba, magic in the moment is the best.
In keeping a bit more in line with the original posing, I remember something from Magick magazine where you made some chemical envelopes and left them under a tree at a friends house (Soon after arriving at their house for dinner)
You then tell them about reading that some of the lots in this area were leveled out with dirt removed from a nuclear test site (Indian burial ground etc)
and you can tell if this is the soil by watering it at night and looking for smoke or mist coming up from the ground.
When you tried it, smoke POURS out of the ground and mutant roots and tendrils come up out of the ground, O.K. it's cruel to your friends, but I laughed for about 5 minutes just visualizing it. But some people say I have a sick sense of humor, then I plot their doom. Moo hoo ahh ha ha.

Baba, why don't you do something productive. OK here's mine.
I noticed the woman across the street working on something on her front door three weeks ago. This woman moved in recently and has been an annoyance since she got here. I later noticed she had installed a new wireless doorbell. I waited patiently till trash day, and stole her trash can and found the package for the doorbell that she had installed. I immediatly returned her trashcan.

The next day I went to Lowes and found a duplicate of her doorbell which was $12.00 which I happily purchased. I got it home and tried the button and sure enough she came to her door as I watched through my blinds, when I pushed my button.

I waited a couple of days and stole her garden gnome. I brought him home and traced his shoes on a piece of paper, and promptly returned her gnome. I made two matching feet from the tracings of her gnome with sculpey clay. Late the next night I used the feet that I made as stamps in glow in the dark paint and stamped footprints from her front door down the sidewalk to the garden gnome. I went home and used my doorbell button and she answered the door and stared in terror at the tiny footprints that led to the garden gnome. Within 3 minutes the police were there and I watched through my blinds as she explained to the police her bizarre tale. Ten minutes after the police left I again began ringing my remote doorbell, and watched as she answered the door and yanked the doorbell button from the doorjamb. I waited another 10 minutes and began pushing my button constantly for about 3 minutes, until every light in the house was lit.

I came home from my girlfriends house tonight and noticed a for sale sign in her yard.


LOL !! While that was a bit on the mean side, that's nonetheless funny and inventive as hell, eG ! "My gnome rang my doorbell !" Daaaammnn...

Offensive illusion, absolute genius Magus.
I wonder just how well it works though. Time to find someone to experiment upon!

One cold, dry day, I sat upon my couch, pondering what to make for lunch when the doorbell interrupted me. Opening the door I found a pair of Jehovah's Witnesses beginning their speech about the "dark times" we live in.
Interrupting them; I called upon a Deity who's name I made up, beseeching unto him to STRIKE DOWN these unbelieving heathens, that worked against his grand scheme.
I then thrust forth my hand, bringing an extended index finger within 1/2 inch of the eldest's nose; whereupon she was smote by a bolt of lightening.

A bolt usually called "Static electricity".
And loe, I did "play it off like I was Da Man."


MOTO, did you get it naturally from shuffling on the carpet or sliding off the couch, or did you use Electric Touch or (ahem) similar gizmo ?
That's probably one of the better uses for my "static on demand" gadget that I haven't thought of yet..

Don't know if this counts as an effect or not...But it is something I actually did. It amused me...
Senior year of High School I and a bunch of friends decided to have a bit of fun. Living out in the country, we had a lot of long stretches of road that were, at best, sparsely populated. One car every 15-20 minutes or so.
We took about five of us with approximately the same build, we all put on roughly the same clothes (Black Jeans, Black shirt and long black trenchcoats, a black bandanna over the hair) then stood at approximately 1/2 mile intervals on the right side of the road. The time was roughly midnight.
The drill was simple. If a car was coming, you would turn towards it (Safely off to the side of the road) and stand there.
That's it.
The first person would frequently see the cars slow down as they passed. Occasionally a car would stop to see what they were doing there. They gave the line we had come up with "Waiting for just the right person." and then they smiled and wouldn't answer any more questions.
The second person in the line would occasionally see the car slow down, but more often than not it would keep going.
By the last person in the line, the cars were invariably speeding and no one ever stopped.
Two hours and eight cars later the cops brought us home. No charges ("Well...You haven't actually done anything wrong. It's just wierd and you are freaking people out.") and we had inadvertently created a new "Haunted Hitchhiker" legend.
We attempted other "Legend" stunts after that. A loch ness type creature out in Lake Huron (Which failed when a big wave tipped over our lizard disguised canoe before anyone saw it), Bigfoot tracks in the snow outside a meat processing facility and a bizarre disappearing cult (Played on two night time jacklighting fisherman on a small river. Ten of us all dressed in black (Big surprise there) stood accross the street from their pickup truck, just in front of the woods. One walked up to the truck to get a beer, saw ten spooky people standing there, backed down the ravine then ran to his friend. We slipped into the ditch out of sight. His friend came back up with him, and there was no one there. They packed up and left in quite a panic)
So...Not necessarily magic or effects, but quite effective nonetheless.

And I'd love to do it again.

I did it with shuffling, wool socks and felt pajamas, but I wasn't expecting the static myself. I just got lucky and played off it.
I was, however, going to start a new thread "searching for that guy that made the static-electricity on demand gimmick", it is good to find you here. Please PM me with information concerning your Electric Touch.

I love your legend inducing pranks, gsidhe.

My Dad used to tell about throwing some thread or fishing line on a spool over a street light line that crossed the street.
(Remember when lines were not underground?)
They would tape an egg to the line at windshield heighth and go Waaaay up the street to watch,
The egg would hit the windshield and the driver would jump out and run all over the neighborhood looking for the rotten kids that threw an egg at his car...
Or am I getting off topic again.
I love the "Men in black" bit
I knew this was going to be an interesting topic when I saw it get started.
I hope this keeps going- this is some funny stuff!
And if I never said so before, Mystician, thanks for publishing your electric touch material, I have purchased the parts, and will put them together- er- soon.

Love the hitchhiker story, Gwyd - that's funny !

Magus and MOTO, (heh.. sounds like a morning DJ team !)shoot me a PM if you have any other questions or problems.
I hope to update my page this weekend. I've discovered a new twist on an earlier effect that blows me away - it, by itself, would make these gadgets rule.

I once did something similar to what Magus did with his Mountain Dew, but with unremarkable results; last year I was playing a lot with my M5, and had to attend a meeting (at work of course). I went with the M5 o'er the knee, and we all sat down at a huge conference table.
My pen developed a tendency to slide right to my hand when I wanted it.. only, no one noticed !! (or at least they didn't say anything).
Killjoys.

The idea of shaolin monks being able to withdraw their testicles into their body and then get kicked comes to mind.

NOT TO MENTION the fact that the GURUS of ancient India (and some today, I'm sure) used to give their followers their or URINE after ingesting massive amounts of magic mushrooms--then, the followers would trip, and say this Guru is soo powerful, even his PI$$ gave them visions of gods...hehehehe

this book is MUST read:
http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Mushrooms-Re......;s=books

and even EUGENE BUGER has an interest in these magic happenings from times gone...

huge weight tied to my- mever mind again.

O.K. How about a curse then? Got two- ba doom boom! continue never minding...

I saw this in an e-mail some years ago, but if you haven't seen it, it'll be good.

To prepare for this curse, you need a couple of jerks to curse, almost impossible to find in this day and age, but we'll pick...

Mr A: A gentle man that called the wrong number, got me and proceeded to cuss me out for answering. Hmmm, check caller I.D., get his number. Call him in a couple of weeks and say in a disguised voice "Hey dude, I won the lottery and I want to pay back all the people who helped me out over the years, give me a call back and I'll make your day. Don't leave a name or a call basck number. If he doesn't call back, then he doesn't have caller I.D. Bravo. Wait for a month

Mr B, the guy that cut you off in the parking lot and flipped you off for good measure. Unfortunately, he was selling his car and had his address and phone on a sign in his window, make a note. Wait for someone like Mr A to come into your life.


Call Mr A periodically, call him a jerk and hang up. Six times ought to do it.
Wait until he's good and hot (And hasn't picked up caller I.D. in the interum)

The curse is ready.

Call Mr B and tell him you want to buy the car, if he has the car tell him to sell it to you, you'll pay double, then at any comment he makes, say "What a jerk, forget it, I'll get one from someone who is not such a moron."
If he's already sold it, question his intelligence, why didn't he wait for you.
Pick a fight.
Tell him you are going to come over and kick his butt. 20 minutes buddy.

Call Mr A, call him a jerk again, wait a bit this time, let him yell a bit, tell him if he was half a man, he wouldn't fight on the phone, he would do it in person.

He says if he knew where you are he would come buy for a quick lesson in manners.

Give him Mr B's address and tell him he's too gutless to come over anyway.

Now, call the police and tell them that you and your gay lover have just had a fight and he said he was coming over to beat you stupid. Give Mr B's address again.

Call the local news station and tell them there is a gang fight going on at Mr B's.

Drop by a block away and watch, bring your video camera, this should be fun.

Pat

A quick and easy way to mess with someone who's just cut you off on the road, and you see that he has a radar detector :

Walmart is now selling these Hot Wheel's radar guns for a staggeringly low $20, they operate at 10.525 GHz, which is X-Band radar. (This is the range of microwaves, so though it's low power, ya gotta be careful)
Just keep it in your car, and every minute or two, briefly aim it at the offender and squeeze the trigger long enough to trigger their radar detector. This should work through the windshield, so no need to be obvious about it by rolling your window down and sticking your arm out. I don't think the range on these things is all that great, but still.. I can't believe they're that cheap !
This should drive the idiot insane, as he'll think he's being invisibly tailed by an unmarked police car or something.. or maybe a helicopter. Smile

(Side note: I don't think it's legal to do this.. but what fun is legality, anyway ?)

Ooooh- Radar gun trigger- I like this!
Many states the radar detectors are illeagel, so triggering an unlawful device can't have too big a penalty.
After reading some of the George Hayduke books ("Getting Even" 1,2, etc) a friend and I used to send each other the funny ones we found here and there.
There was one in the Heyduke books about freezing many cans of shaving foam, transporting them in a cooler, cutting off the ends with a hatchet, and sliding them through the mail slot of a small office door, that someone tried (I was sent a newsclipping)
Imagine coming in on Monday to find the entire office, wall to wall, floor to ceiling, filled with shaving foam.
I still chuckle when I think about it.

In days gone by it used to be much easier to call the newspaper and pay in cash for a notice in the obituary section. I was terminated by an unscrupulous district manager. I went to the newspaper and "Terminated him". I don't know what the outcome was, but I am sure that the mass of phone calls to his home, checking on his new widow was pretty funny.
My mom says I'm reprehensible, I think I'm perfectly hensible.
