What's the scariest trick you ever pulled on someone?

    What's the scariest trick you ever pulled on someone?

    I used to change my voice and pretend to be possessed to scare my brother ( I am not proud) I had a whole character worked out and then I became a 'vessel' through which various old ghosts channeled... when we are alone.  My poor brother was petrified but strangely got quite attached to one 'ghost'!

    We lived in a house that had a very scary, cinder block type basement. There was a small laundry chute in the bathroom down to the basement.  My daughter was about 11 and had a friend over to spend the night. My daughter wanted to show her the basement.  So I quick grabbed the vacuum hose off the vacuum and put it down the laundry chute and started making spooky noised into the hose and it carried right into the basement.

    Those girls came up those stairs mighty quick.  We had a good laugh over it.  She still talks about it.

    I'm not sure if this was scary or just weird, but I had a friend that was an avid newspaper reader. Especially his local/community section. It cost me a few bucks but was worth it. I took one of his photographs and wrote his obituary and published it in the paper he reads. About 3 of us watched him as he leafed thru and when he saw it, for a minute he got white as a ghost. It only took him a minute to figure out how it got there, but that minute after he first saw it was worth every penny.

    I have never personally pranked anybody in a scary way, however my dad once done it to me and my brother.

    Me and my brother were sat at the kitchen table, arguing and being just like children. Dad was at the counter, chopping vegetables and getting frustrated at our ramblings. All of a sudden he bellowed in anger and pain, "look what you've done you little sh**s!"

    I ran over to the counter watching him clutch at his hand, and saw a full finger on the chopping board. I instantly went pale, honestly I was struck with shock. I started to freak out, and although the finger was fake in reality, my brain had created an image of a true finger with blood all over the place. Without the shock and my brain running away from itself, there was not actually any trace of red substance anywhere.

    Within a few seconds his bouts of pain were muffled with laughter, and colour returned to my face as I realised what was going on.  Yeah, I felt stupid...

      It's amazing how the mind can 'trick' the eye into seeing something that is not actually there...or missing something that is actually there.  smile
