OpaQue, you have too much much time on your hands. Ever tried any of this? Might be entertaining actually. I will try out that blow dryer one :( No just kidding. Man, the things people come up with. I would say that someone, or something* have too much time on their hands.I was reading another where you could pay for your dinner with pennies and when in college, glue your shoes to the ceiling and when your room-mate comes in, site there on the ground holding your head :( . Hey nice stuff OpaQue.

I read one where you take a bagless garbage can and put you phone in it. Then you put the can in its side and put it against the wall between your room and your roommate's room (leave the phone on the hook). Now, leave your room and go across town. If you have a cell phone, call the phone in your room. Don't hang up for a couple of minutes or so. Or make the call with a pay phone and walk away without hanging up.

I think a great way to annoy people is to follow them (act inconspicuous -- meaning like you're a spy). You'll get all sorts of reactions from that.Another is to go on an elevator and face *towards* the other people. It's funny to watch everyone get uncomfortable.Go up to a random couple somewhere (the mall is great, or the movies) and look at the person that's the opposite sex of you (so if you're male, look at the female, or vice versa). Stare directly into their eyes, then look at the person they're with. Look back at them again and yell "So *this* is who you're cheating on me with?! You could at least cheat *up*. It's over!" and walk away.Note : I don't condone the third one because it's been known to destroy relationships. Do it at your own risk.

hmmm it's a good topic, but not really something i need since i seem to annoy people naturally. but if someone is feeling up to it, i think a good way to annoy someone is walk up to someone from behind, smack them in the back of the head and tell them, "your it!"
