    glad i could be of help, heh if you really want to cause a seen call the local tv stations and tell them something really big is going to happen, but dont say what.

    Or my personal fav. while they are out, get some quick drying cement and build a giant monolith in front of the door (make sure to build a bigger base at the bottom so it cant be pushed over).

    heh, and another thing that gets me is when my mom rushes into my room with the newspaper and reads me the latest inflated computer headline: "KEN!!! This says that a new virus known as the code red worm could hurt us!! Go fix the computer!!" "Mom, I already knew about that..." "No way! It's just in the newspaer today! There's no way you could've known! Stop lying! Fix it!!!"
    Along these same lines, how about a guy who's trying oh so hard to convince you he's computer literate that sends out chain letters and virus notices every oterh damn day.... He's also a big fan of the "send this back if you're my friend" e-mails... Also, he was just looking for a new video card today, and asked me if a good price on a GeForce2 MX was around $150 or so... I almost said yes

    So that's what happened to my old friend from middle school. I sure am glad I dropped him, he was starting to get on my nerves.

    Sorry you had to pick him up though cheez.

    When someone's mad just say "Looks liek someone's got a bad case of the mondays" and when they respond say it again and keep saying it. Another way is to poke people in the back of the head or stick things in their ear. Or farting on them. Or telling a lot of bad jokes. My favorite is arguing without using logic. They say something and you say that they are completely wrong. And you don't back it up but you pretend like they are stupid (only works with smart people).

    >>For me, drive slowly in front of me.
    Gets me every time. Three lanes all blocked by a row of snails.
    Got angry at one who brakes as I get close to make me backoff, gave him the finger, so he follows me home! I get out of the car with my stick (I study a style of fencing called 'Savate' using sabre) ready to 'discuss the event' with him.
    Turns out he is a plain clothes cop and wants to book me.

    We were taught verbal judo at the casino I worked at. Made some guy go crazy ape .......... bonkers by 'understanding his anger', after taking him for $3000 ($1000 in one hand he should have won but I got extra lucky). He threw his empty wallet at me, saying "You got all the money, have this!".

    I watched as he got dragged out by security, and got an easy shift (in case I did it to anyone else). Became part of a security film for training new dealers.

    Yeah, but how's your hand? You didn't cut it on the broken glass, I hope.

    I've got a friend who loves to do this to people:

    He sees you trying to do some work so he comes up and says: "Hey, lemme help you out with that..." Then spends like an hour pretending to know what he's doing, pretending to explain... once you tell him: "You really don't know any f this, do you?" he says: "no, I don't"... man is that annoying

    It's just that he does such a good job at bs-ing it most people that don't know him that well actually think he knows what it is he's talking about. In the end, you end up wasting a good hour or so worth of time listening to the guy...
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.
