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

-MADDA_2078

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

-LaBelleCommaF

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.

-BaldHeadSlick

Set their toasters on the highest setting.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
