Hi,

We always thought it was fun to fold the leads of an axial electrolytic cap along opposite sides and charge it up. A few mikes at 400 volts is good. Then, handling carefully, you just toss it over to your victim and watch him catch it. Be close to a door...

Hi,

One harmless prank that was played on someone involved a large control panel. The technican testing the panel did not realize that a joker had inserted the end of a long flexible tube into the back of the panel. The joker layed the tube along the floor to a spot out of sight. When the technician powered up, the joker lit a cigarette and started blowing smoke into the tube. Eventually the smoke started seeping out of the small openings in the front of the control panel. Not realizing what had happened and thinking that the control panel was burning up, the technician hastily power down and started inspecting the panel before realizing the prank.

Hi,

If you can scare up some old flashbulbs, they can be wired into almost any circuit so as to produce a huge flash when a switch is thrown.

The old Press 25's were a real hoot out at sea. You could launch one with a Wrist-Rocket slingshot at night so the radar sweep set it off. The bridge lookout got real excited about the soundless explosion somewhere out there.

This isn't an electronic prank, but it is pretty humorous. Go to a store and buy one of those plastic skeletons. Get some florescent paint and paint the skull. Then after leaving the skull in the sunlight for hours, place it in a cemetery. If it is not holloween, someone is likely to get a good scare.
