Being a ghost would be an excellent opportunity for pranks. Being incorporeal and/or invisible means not getting caught, and presents a plethora of new ways to mess with people.


Reddit user u/BlameSociety1 asked:

"If you were a ghost, what things would you do just to mess with people?"

Follow Ghost Hunters around, but only do things that are easily explainable without a "ghost" hypothesis.

-BolthMC

nah, follow them and when they freak out at some random noise and ask "what was that?" appear beside them to answer "gee, I dont know"

I'd possess the Biology Class Skeleton, march to the front of the room, and scream,

"I GOT A BONE TO PICK WITH YOU, EH HEHEHEHE!!!!"

Go on their phone and rearrange their applications on the home screen

I'd have your spectral @ss exorcised so fast...

That is the evilest thing I have ever heard...

Oh man I fantasize about this all the time.

The usual opening doors and moving car keys around. No light flickering, that gives the game away, but turn out lights in vacant rooms. Rearrange books or DVDs or records, just slightly. Put a frozen meal in the microwave, but don't turn it on. Change the TV channel when they go to the bathroom

Fold their laundry, or put it away. Rearrange decorations on their walls and shelves. Replace light bulbs that burnt out.
Little things. Things that make them think they're going a little crazy, or losing their memory. Going senile, even. Keep it up and personalize to the hauntee. They'll never even know I was there.

So you want to redecorate and maintain basic upkeep to my home?

-Product_of_purple

Pretty much, but in a more spooooooky way.

If they're decent people, I'd find things they lost and put them somewhere they can't miss it. Phone missing? Boom, it's on the chair. Keys gone? Hanging out of the lock. If they forget to grab their towel before a shower, I'd set one out for them. And maybe I'd whisper poetry to them when they sleep.

If they're assholes, I'll wake them up about an hour before they're supposed to get up, either by blasting early My Chemical Romance over their Bluetooth speakers or by growling the Verse of the Ring at them in the original Black Speech. (It sounds intimidating enough to possibly be a demon, and my Latin and Aramaic need work.) When they finally relax enough to go back to sleep, I'll turn off their alarm.

I made a pact with my best friend growing up that the first of us to die would come back as a ghost, and then throw a book so we could tell who it was.

So I'm going to go to her house and throw all her books at her.
She'll love it. She's cool like that.

I'd hard boil some eggs
Give them an ice bath when they're done
Peel them
Throw them in a bowl
Chop some green onion
Throw that in a bowl
Put some mayo in the bowl
Mix it good
Bring out the bread
Make egg salad sandwiches
Leave them out and the people living in the house would be like
"Sh*t, who made these man?"
It'd be an instant classic

-sad-doggy

I'd tap the shoulders of people walking next to each other and make them stare at each other with weird looks

-UnPhayzable

Listen here satan....

Move random objects slightly so its enough for them to question if they left it like that but not enough to be sure that they didn't.

Set their toasters on the highest setting.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
