With April fools around the corner what are some of the best pranks you have played?

Something they will always remember[rebelmouse-image 18358821 is_animated_gif=
Got the idea from a local radio station.
I had posted on local classified sites, our newspaper, etc to call (this phone number) on (this date) and do your very best impression of a goat, and hang up. If yours was the best, youd be entered to win. Didnt say what youd win. Just that you could win.
The number was my husbands...on his birthday.
The first call came in at 5:00am, an hour before his alarm. "BAAAAAAH!" click
He got home that night and glared at me, "I dont know how, but i know you did this." His voicemail was FULL of goat noises.
Making a whole room vanish[rebelmouse-image 18350885 is_animated_gif=
The best prank I ever heard of was told to me by my best friend's dad. When he was in college, he and another guy were the only ones to stay at the dorm over winter break (it was kind of sad, really---neither had families that they wanted to see). They were quickly bored, so they picked the lock to the room of a guy who was a jerk, then took the door off the hinges, and then---he swears this is true---drywalled over the doorway and painted the hallway. The guy comes back from break, walks along the hallway, room 505, 506, 508...wait, what? His room is gone. The guy actually went outside, looked up to their floor, and counted windows to see if his room had completely disappeared from the space-time continuum...
Pranking mom never get old[rebelmouse-image 18358822 is_animated_gif=
I'm thinking of finding a recording of two guys having an NSA-like conversation and having my mother's amazon echo play it at a random time during the day.
The is just mean[rebelmouse-image 18353752 is_animated_gif=
Not me but my sister once unscrewed the shower head and placed a hard life saver candy in there, so that after my shower I was subtly sticky. :(
Mmmmmm Cheesy[rebelmouse-image 18358823 is_animated_gif=
I replaced my housemate's soap with a very neatly carved block of extra mature cheese.
He was a very hairy gentleman and complained that the smell remained for the rest of the day despite several more- cheese free- showers.
Sibling collaboration always makes for a strong prank[rebelmouse-image 18358824 is_animated_gif=
Best prank? When I was 6 and my older sister was 8, while my parents when off alone in there bedroom to have "Their TV time", we created a Tall Person costume like a ghost with a sheet, hat, sun glasses, and rain coat, with my sister sitting up on my shoulders.
We were planning on knocking on my parents door, and for whoever answered my sister had prepared some goofy question to ask, to make them laugh, see... but it never got that far.
As we approached their door, giggling and trying not to tip over, my mother cracked open the door with a tray of dishes and glasses in her hands, looking back over her shoulder talking to my dad, when she turned forward she was almost face to face with our Wobbly Tall Person in a Sheet with Sun Glasses and Rain Coat.
(Picture scared Homer Simpson)
...she screamed, flipped her plate tray up in the air, turned and barged running back into the bedroom like the devil was behind her, screaming my dad's name.
My sister and I both lost it laughing, lost our Tall Person balance and tilted against a wall, and then my sister peed on me because she was laughing too hard and couldn't get down.
We didn't even get in that much trouble, because although my mother want to beat both of us with a belt, my dad was laughing too hard to let things get ugly.
So there. Not a clever or well thought out prank, but the results were more than we could have hoped for..
When your sister knows your weak spots[rebelmouse-image 18358826 is_animated_gif=
My sister did not back up her phone despite me telling her to several times. I had the same phone as her. I backed up my phone reset it to factory settings switched covers with her phone and watcher her morning descend into chaos.
Classic summer camp prank[rebelmouse-image 18358827 is_animated_gif=
One summer at camp, we brought a life size cutout of a professional wrestler and set it up inside the bathroom of the counselors cabin. The screams echoed through the night. It was beautiful.
She must have been so peased off![rebelmouse-image 18352989 is_animated_gif=
Not much of a prankster, bit I do put frozen peas in the fridge ice dispenser. When my mom goes for ice water, she gets peas instead.
A prank that keeps on giving[rebelmouse-image 18358828 is_animated_gif=
One year, me and my younger brothers turned everything possible upside down in the kitchen after our parents had gone to bed. Cookbooks, food, the calendar, paintings, basically everything but appliances. It took my parents a few moments to actually figure out what we had done in the morning, but their reaction was priceless.
Best part was, it was a prank that kept on giving: for literally the next year, every so often something would be found that hadn't gotten turned rightside up and everyone would have a good chuckle. Once or twice even happened when there was company over.
A prank with a vengeance[rebelmouse-image 18358829 is_animated_gif=
There was a competition running by Tim Tam (a very popular chocolate biscuit in Australia) where they were giving away a weekly prize of either a year's worth of Tim Tams or $20000 worth of travel vouchers. To enter the competition, you had to text in a special code found on the inside of the packet. The terms and conditions said that you needed the packet as proof of purchase in order to win the prize.
I bought Tim Tams every time they were on special and entered the competition about a dozen times. I kept the empty packets on our bench behind our coffee maker.
I came home from work one day and the packets were gone. I asked my husband where they were and he said he'd thrown them out. "But what if we win?!" I whined. "We won't win," he scoffed.
I went to work and told my colleague about this and we hatched a plan (my husband and this colleague had never met). A couple of weeks later, my colleague phoned my husband on a Friday afternoon and pretended to be from Tim Tam. After letting him know he was the lucky winner she said, "Now, all you'll need to do to redeem your prize is provide proof that you purchased the packet with the code XXXXXXXXXX." My husband lied and said he thought we'd 'lost' the packet and asked if could he have some time to find it.
Seconds after they'd hung up, my phone rang. It was my husband. "Don't be angry," he started, "but we won the Tim Tam competition." I started screaming in excitement and jumping around. He was trying to interrupt me and I was cheering etc Then he told me about needing the packets to win to which I was like, "BABE! I told you not to throw them out!! You better find it!!" etc etc We ended the conversation with him apologizing profusely and promising that he would find the packets.
We hung up the phone and I felt guilty within minutes, knowing how stressed my husband would be. I tried calling him back but couldn't get on to him. I called and called for about half an hour before I finally got on to him and admitted that it was a prank.
The phone went silent.
"Do you know what I have been doing for the last half hour? I have been WADING THROUGH OUR GARBAGE BIN trying to find those f_*_ing packets!"
Without doubt, best prank I've ever pulled.
Some people just can't execute[rebelmouse-image 18347311 is_animated_gif=
I once did ye olde saran-wrap-over-the-toilet shenanigan. I set it up for my sister and went back into my room to play video games. After a while I forget about it and I had to use the restroom and I ended up peeing all over my legs.
Techie prank[rebelmouse-image 18358830 is_animated_gif=
Not myself but I know a guy who hated his coworker so he wrote a script on the guys computer that dimmed the monitor by an increment and reduced the speaker sound every time he started it up. Eventually the guy threw away his monitor and speakers thinking they died.
Why are my lips tingling?[rebelmouse-image 18358831 is_animated_gif=
One time I put extra strength Orajel (an over the counter mouth numbing cream for those who don't know) on the filter side of my friend's cigarettes. It was funny cause I could tell he could feel something was off but didn't say anything to anyone until I burst out laughing
Cat pranks are sometimes the best[rebelmouse-image 18358832 is_animated_gif=
Last April 1st I opened up tuna with the can opener and dished it into my cats bowl, then put saran wrap over top very tight so it was clear. I put the bowl down and my cat pressed her nose into it and started licking the saran wrap for a few seconds before walking back to me meowing really loudly. I couldn't deal with that sad cute face so I took off the saran wrap and vowed to never play a trick like that ever again.
Epic drive through prank[rebelmouse-image 18358833 is_animated_gif=
Back in high school, my friends and I would go through the fast food drive thru. There'd be the driver, passenger and one person in the trunk. As we got up to the window, the guy in the trunk (who was in only his boxers and had his arms and mouth duct taped) would hop out and start running away. The person at the drive thru would usually freak out and say something like "Holy s! That guy just came from your trunk!" The driver would say something along the lines of "What the f? He's getting away!" and he'd peel out and chase after him. High school was an interesting time in my life.
It's important to play up the phobias[rebelmouse-image 18358835 is_animated_gif=
There was once a legendary prank at my high school, the kind that transcends the ages and is immortalized in the school's consciousness.
One teacher had an extreme phobia of eyes. They just freaked him out. Well, one class must've been possessed by Satan himself and decided to pull the meanest prank of all time. They not only covered everywhere in his class with pictures of eyes, but hid them around the class. The story goes that months afterwards the teacher would, say, lift of his coffee mug and, in the middle of a dead silent class, leap out of his chair screaming at the picture of an eye beneath.
Cruel, but insanely hilarious.
College roommates are full of pranks[rebelmouse-image 18353119 is_animated_gif=
One thing fairly recently, I've done to prank someone is to wake them up.
My college roommate said he was going to take a nap, and he requested that I wake him up when I would leave for my lab.
In this particular room, his bed was positioned in such a way where the head of his bed was directly underneath a window, and the foot facing the door. The window also had plastic blinds.
As I was about to leave for my lab, he was still asleep. I decided to have a little fun. I took a roll of toilet paper and beamed it at the window as hard as I could. What resulted was one of the loudest sounds I've heard: the crackling of multiple window blinds at the same time. It was so loud that my roommate screamed when he was shocked awake.
As soon as I threw it, I closed the door, and headed for my lab.
When your phone magically changes...[rebelmouse-image 18358836 is_animated_gif=
I just changed the names on my families phones to some crazy s***. Caller iD will list the as the following Wife- milf mom Daughter- queen croc Son- Old Gregg
The prank that teaches a lesson[rebelmouse-image 18358837 is_animated_gif=
My boyfriend has a bad habit of leaving the doors unlocked at night (I usually go to bed before him), and he's a heavy sleeper. All of our valuables have been 'stolen' this year. The TV, consoles, laptops, and PC have all been locked in the shed while he was asleep (I went to bed but waited up).
People Share Their Most Bone-Chilling 'Let's Get The Hell Outta Here' Experiences
Sometimes you just get a vibe or a tingle down your neck that you're in the wrong place at the wrong time.
It can be wise to trust this gut instinct, as we learned from many in the Reddit community.
Often those goosebumps or the voice in their head actually saved them from serious harm.
It all started when Redditor throwaway_district9 asked:
"what has been your most bone-chilling, hair-raising, "Let's get the hell out of here" experience?"
A Frightening Weekend
"I don't tell this story often but this seems like a good place. Back in college I used to drive up the Oregon coast on weekends, then just crash in my car when I got tired. I woke from a nap in the driver's seat and something just didn't feel quite right. It was just dusk and the light was fading pretty fast."
"I yawned and stretched and as I did so I turned my head to the side and just caught a face ducking down below my rear passenger window. I went to hit the lock button just to make sure and in my panic I accidentally unlocked the doors briefly and then locked them again."
"I stared at the window for a few minutes, knowing that someone was crouching just out of sight. Eventually, I started the car and thought I heard a scuffing sound. Whoever it was didn't reappear, but that was enough for me. As I noped out of there and pulled out back onto Highway 101, I glanced back and a bald figure in a red t-shirt with something wrapped around his face booked it into the woods on the side of the road."
"That was the end of that weekend trip. I drove the two hours back to my dorm room, white-knuckled hands locked on the steering wheel. I had to pull over a few miles down the road though to deal with the adrenaline shakes."
What Could It Be?
"Me and a couple of my friends were walking around at night when we were around 11 or 12 and I specifically remember all of us feeling like something was off and we started joking about someone or something getting us and saying to each other we’re not afraid of anything. Then we heard a raspy growl that we all agreed had to be a mountain lion."
"All of us were in a dead sprint to my house, scared sh*tless as soon as we heard it. I didn’t live in a place where they usually are so people mostly didn’t believe us, but shortly afterwards and after some more sightings, a mountain lion was caught just 10-15 miles from my home. In hindsight it definitely wasn’t very close to us and we didn’t actually see it, but we definitely exaggerated and acted like it was right next to us."
Not So Abandoned
"A friend and I were exploring an abandoned factory in North Philadelphia about 8 years ago, and when we got to about the third floor...I discovered a booby trap in the stairwell."
"Basically it was a trip wire that swung an axe down from the ceiling."
"Right as that fully set in, we heard someone from up above shout "YO!""
"Time to go."
"I've never covered that much ground so fast. I think we were two or three blocks away before we realized we were riding each other's bikes."
"When I was 16 I had a pickup truck and my parents asked me to pick up some new furniture on the way home. As I’m driving home it starts pissing rain and I was worried the furniture would get destroyed, so I pulled over on the side of the road under an overpass to wait it out."
"As I’m waiting, another car pulls up behind me. An overweight bald man steps out and begins walking towards my car. I tell him I’m waiting for the rain to stop so I don’t ruin the furniture for my parents."
"He was acting very odd and telling me he would help me out as he was fingering his belly button. I was creeped the f*ck out."
"He says one minute he has to grab something to help and leans into his car window. All of my alarm bells are going off so I figured f*ck it and just sped off furniture be damned."
"So glad I did, who knows what would have happened"
Volunteer To Prey
"My wife and I were on a search mission for some missing fern pickers. We were volunteers with the local search and rescue (SAR) team. We decided to stay in the search area that night and had built a pretty nice fire. We were sitting there and it was about 0200, hoping this dude would wander into camp."
"I had heard animals around us throughout the night. No surprise, we're in the middle of the woods, I'm used to animals stalking around outside my camp."
"I knew there were two animals, one one each side of us. It was at about that point when we heard a bird chirp. It came from about the place I figured one of the animals were. Then another, from the opposite side."
"I immediately realized we were being watched and stalked by at least two cougars. We very quickly climbed into the back of my truck. It's got a camper shell and is outfitted for truck camping."
"Driving Uber one night a couple years back. I picked up four guys from a club, listening to them talk I realized that two guys (one of them ordered the ride) had met the other two at the club and were on the way to get drugs from one of their cousins."
"There was an odd vibe, some of the conversation didn't seem the most linear, and I was hyper-aware that these drunk dumba**es were heading with two strangers to a drug deal. And I was the one driving them."
"I did not want drugs in my car, and I was very aware that we might be on the way to an ambush. If we'd been heading anywhere remote or sketchy I had to figure out how to end the ride."
"The two wannabe dealers kept trying to get in touch with their cousin via cellphone, went to an apartment just off a main street, and after both had gone into the building I just said "should be leave?" to the guys and we did. I still don't know if it was just a ploy for a free ride, guys too drunk or dumb to pull off a basic drug deal, or something nefarious that didn't finish."
Trust Your Gut
"I was in an upstairs lab in med school, just a friend & I practicing surgical skills. There was a main enclosed staircase down to the lobby/classrooms & a weird outdoor stairwell that nobody ever used except in fire drills. It wasn't a fire escape, but the old main entrance to the lab classroom. When I put my hand on the door handle to the main stairs, I was FILLED with a weird sense of "Get out! Not that way!" Just absolute fear, I felt trapped & anxious. For the first time in 3 years, I said "Let's take the outdoor stairs..." My friend had literally no idea there even WAS another exit."
"The next day we found out that at the exact time we were taking the outside stairs, one of our classmates was pulling a gun on the admin & students in the lobby at the base of the main stairs. He'd been kicked out of the program for his grades & snapped."
"My friend still talks about it & tells people to always trust my instincts. I actually asked her to stop telling people, because I felt so weird about it. I'm sure I just heard something in the distance that gave me that feeling, but Gavin de Becker would be proud!"
"One time I was out in Colorado with some buddies hiking near the top of a mountain. Some bad weather started to roll in but the top was only 15 mins away so I went ahead while they went back down. As I was getting to the top I felt static in the air and the hair in my head started to stand up. I immediately started to panic cause I thought I was about to get struck by lightning so naturally I ran down without ever getting to the top. I’m not sure if I was gunna get struck but I sure as hell wasn’t sticking around to find out."
"Hiking in the Rocky Mountains, on a trail I knew pretty well. I was leading a group of kids, maybe twenty or so middle school aged children from the camp where I worked."
"I turned a corner and saw a jaw bone of a deer. Pretty cool, showed it to the kids. Didn't have any flesh on it, so I assumed it was pretty old."
"A hundred feet further down the trail I find another bone. Femur maybe (I specialized in insect populations, not deer anatomy.) This one looked a little fresher. Another ways down, another bone."
"I'm getting a little nervous at this point, so I explain that we should probably turn around and head back. My students all groan that they want to see more dead stuff, but I shepherd them down the train and back to camp."
"Two days later we got a call at the camp that someone had been attacked in the area by a mountain lion. Apparently a mountain lion had set itself up in the caves on the cliffside and it had gotten pissed when someone got too close."
"I'm glad we left the area, even if my students would have loved to see more dead stuff."
Yeah, I would've left too!

History is full of mystery.
There are things we may never know.
That is true, but some answers have to be possible.
Are we looking hard enough?
Humans have murdered, robbed, and pillaged their way all over the Earth.
We've left a trail of unknown scattered throughout time.
This is why history is so fascinating.
There will always be new and obscure topics for documentaries.
Redditor InsertBurnsHere wanted to discuss the world's most unresolved issues, so they asked:
"What is the biggest unsolved mystery in human history?"
The mysteries that haunt me are all murder stories.
When will we find the killers?!
The AbscondedBank Robbery Heist GIF by ADWEEKGiphy
"Who was behind the Gardner Museum heist? Hundreds of millions of dollars worth of art was taken, and we have little to no clue who was behind it, and none of the paintings have surfaced."
The Linear Truth
"In 1893, British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans purchased some ancient stones with mysterious inscriptions on them at a flea market in Athens. On a later trip to the excavations at Knossos on the island of Crete, he recognized one of the symbols from his stones and began a study of the engraved tablets being uncovered at various sites on the island."
"He discovered two different systems, which he called Linear A and Linear B. While Linear B was deciphered in the early 1950s (it turned out to represent an early form of Greek), Linear A, above, has still not been deciphered."
"There is an entire culture of information that predates much of our history, a window into ancient humanity that is simply locked away from us because we don't know how to read it."
"An active one in the archaeology world is the exact time frame of when humans made it to the Americas. The date keeps getting pushed back with more controversial discoveries that then just turn to evidence as they pile up. It’s a fascinating story to see unfold."
"Yeah I like this one too, I think many of the traces of early settlement are likely submerged. Sea levels were much lower during the ice age and the majority of human settlements are along the coasts so a huge piece of our history is probably lying on the seafloor completely undisturbed and possibly well preserved."
"So the Monarch Butterfly migrates to Mexico and back every year. During the year there are a full 4 generations of butterflies that live and die during the journey. Upon returning back from Mexico, the butterfly manages to find the same trees it's relative started out at despite never having been there."
Dark EnergyLoop Space GIF by xponentialdesignGiphy
"We like to think we understand the universe and that physics is a well grounded discipline, and in some ways it is. However we have no idea what dark matter or dark energy is and yet we think it makes up 27% and 68% of the universe respectively."
The Universe is vast and scary, like the sea.
The EndKimmy Schmidt Netflix GIF by Unbreakable Kimmy SchmidtGiphy
"The final words of the emperor Titus were 'I have but one regret'. We don't know and never will what that regret was."
"That most of human history is undocumented and we will never know our entire history as a species. We didn’t start recording our history until 5000 BCE, we do know we shifted to agrarian societies around 10,000 BCE but beyond that we have no idea what we were like as a species, we will never know the undocumented parts of our history that spans 10s of thousands of years."
"We are often baffled by the technological progress of our ancient ancestors, like those in SE Asia who must have been masters of the sea to have colonized the variety of islands there and sailed vast stretches of ocean to land on Australia and New Zealand."
"What is ironic is we currently have an immense amount of information about our world today and the limited documented history of our early days as a species but that is only a small fraction of our entire history."
"I don't know about 'biggest,' but I always thought the Voynich Manuscript was very interesting. A huge book written in an unknown language or cipher that has never been translated or decoded with diagrams of plant species that don't exist. Lots of theories surrounding it, but no definitive answers as to the origins or the content."
Who made it?
"Not sure if it's THE biggest mystery. But the Antikythera mechanism is pretty wild."
"Dated to at least 60BC, possibly as old as 200BC, it's as complex as clockworks that didn't show up until the 1400s, over a millennium later!"
"It's just such a strange technological anomaly. Who made it? What else did they make and why haven't we found more stuff as advanced?"
Magic TinsVideo Recycle GIF by Jenny LorenzoGiphy
"Why did we all just globally decide that those blue Dutch cookie tins hold sewing supplies?"
"They’re large enough to hold sewing scissors, along with other notions, and made of metal so that the scissors and needles can’t poke through them. Or at least that’s the consensus r/sewing seems to have come to."
My grandma had like 20 of those tins.
Do you have any mysteries to add? Let us know in the comments below.
CW: Domestic violence.
Sometimes family are the ones to avoid most.
That whole blood and water thing is true.
Evil is everywhere.
Even in our blood, our DNA.
It can be daunting to learn that someone you share something so intimate with can be darkness incarnate.
But really, that's probably a statistical truth for all of us.
So how do we cope?
Redditor onlyusemefeets wanted to hear about the worst of everyone's family, so they asked:
"When did you find out that someone in your family is evil?"
The Reddit community rose to the occasion to shed some light on their family skeletons.
Money IssuesWild West Fighting GIF by Buyout FootageGiphy
"When they ripped apart 3 generations of my family almost immediately after my dad died for a measly $37,000. He's a millionaire. That kinda money is pocket change to him."
"When my 11 year old cousin got cancer."
"Her mom and boyfriend were shooting up her pain medicine. My cousin was in so much pain, she told her Doctors. Thats when the doctors stopped giving her mom a prescription and the nurses dispensed her pain meds at the hospital. Unfortunately they could not keep track of medication while at home so they reported it."
"CPS removed her. She died shortly after in foster care. Parents were never charged."
"When my dad died of covid my Aunt tried to say she was entitled to some stuff of his since it belonged in the family. She even called a lawyer on us and it was big deal and my mom didn't need to deal with that trying to raise 3 kids on her own so f**k her. She still bothers us about stuff and all it is like plates and some pictures and some other things."
"Sunken Cost Fallacy"
"My brother's addiction has led to him spinning some ridiculous stories. I'm not sure if he is very convincing or if my father chooses to believe him because of some 'sunken cost fallacy,' or he genuinely refuses to give up. But my brother has told lies and stories about me and my siblings to the point that he's the only child who talks to my father anymore. He convinced my father that I forced him to do drugs."
"But I knew my brother was evil when scared away my sister with physical violence. Last month, he went missing for a weeks only to turn up after flipping his car high on pills. My father doesn't know it yet, but my mother is planning on leaving him because my father chooses my brother over her. No one can convince my father that he's enabling. No one can convince my brother to stop. Hard drugs really destroy entire families."
A New FamilyFrustrated Skip Bayless GIFGiphy
"When he purposely excluded his 4 year old son (from a previous relationship) from his wedding to his new spouse, deleted all photos of his son from his social media, and legally signed away all parental rights. He has since had 2 more kids with said new spouse."
How can parents act that way?
"I don't know about evil, but my dad got remarried and has a kid and stepson with his new spouse. All of that would be fine if he didn't pretend that none of us (offspring from first marriage) exist so he can pretend this family is the first family and we never happened."
"Once this realization hit me, I stopped contacting him, and once I stopped putting in the effort, everything else dissipated. We haven't spoken at all. He does not care in the least. I honestly believe that he wishes we never even existed. He is a failure as a father and as a man."
"When my husband's brother (1 of 5 siblings) said he couldn't make it to our house to plan their mother's funeral because he had to work. Meanwhile we found out he wasn't working because we caught him on ring doorbell entering the moms house to rifle through it while the rest of us were planning the funeral at my house."
"When my ex said 'you've been a godsend, I want a divorce.' I had taken time off from work to take care of her parents. She told me this right before her dad died, and she inherited. She found a boyfriend while I was with her parents. She got the house by declaring I had abandoned it. I was with her parents."

"When my dad tried to throw my 6 month old sister when he was drunk. That man is a monster in disguise"
So many people really need to be screened for their abilities to raise kids.
