Project Googly:

I like thinking about the possible side-effects if this snowballs to massive proportions. Someone at the People's Plastic Decorations and Adornments Factory, HK LLC. Co. joint will no doubt rush into a staff meeting to announce "Worldwide sales of assorted googly-eyes have inexplicably risen 900%! The prophecy has been fulfilled!"

Edit: Take that, a billion monkeys on a billion typewriters.

So far, I've got a sense of humor.
It's a good start.

Before highschool when we didn't have to buy our own books, I used to draw stuff on the marginals. Usually little metroids and raptors or just random doodles, sometimes little comics. My English books especially tanded to have little comics dealing with the chapter's subject, starring a cartoon dinosaur. And one of my math book had some exercises that had something to do with dinosaurs but had gotten the facts wrong (and had a very inaccurate looking picture), so I wrote corrections to the errors and drew a more accurate picture.
If somebody tries to convert me to some religion, I might start trying to convert them to worship eighter Lovecraft's Great Old Ones, the Chaos Gods or the Burning Legion. I'm thinking about printing a bunch of fliers and handing them to whoever tries to hand me religious pamflets.
I also tend to threathen annoing people with "Raining legiontastic Doom upon them"

My favorite drinking game involves taking sips of a certain bottled beverage with at least one other person, blowing across the top, and trying to figure out the musical intervals. It's cool because it naturally gets harder as you go along :lol:

When I walk to and from school, I cross a large field. In winter it's covered in snow and I often draw giant gliders with my footprints off to the side of my path. I leave this glider-derived symbol everywhere I can:

With or without the shading. I factor the time and leave factor trees in the margins of half my school assignments, and I have a graph/lined/looseleaf paper notebook full of distilled weird:

It also contains dozenal math, hyper operators, sketches of hypercubes, ways to encode ASCII in a bent line, Conway's Game of Life, everything to do with the golden ratio, various fractals, etc., etc. But my digital camera's broken.

I don't usually bring the fish to school.

I have no idea why, but that sentence just made my night.
(I mean, it's a great sentence and all, I'm sure it will go down in literary history. My brain just happened to find it really amazing, but if i stop to think about it. It's not really as amazing as my brain thinks it is. Did that make sense?)
If four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is fourteen, what base is next? And more importantly, who is doing the calculation? :)

Once upon a time, I was in Spain, and I happened upon a stationary story of such stuff dreams are made (of). Thereafter, it became my ambition to purchase a particularly auspicious notebook for a certain purpose: I hoped to circulate said notebook among my friends and acquaintances briefly, laying down my designs concerning the notebook, as well as a passable base of content. I would then leave the notebook somewhere that it would be found, such as a hostel or a school. He, or she, whom found the notebook would then be instructed (in multiple languages on the first page) to add those drawings/stories/designs/equations/et cetera they felt inclined to add, and subsequently to carry the notebook with them briefly, and to leave it at another likely spot. In order that I may keep accord of its journeys, I could have a website on the back of the notebook. Perhaps, by this strategy, I might even have it return to me. Otherwise, it might simply circulate among hostels and entertain travellers. This idea, provided that it has not already done so, might then become popular, and its joys would be multiplied and dispersed for all.

Perhaps you could leave such a notebook at your school as a way for each of us to catch a glimpse of the humanity residing in us all.


Sarcastic tone notwithstanding, I think that'd be sweet (and the story is basically true).

I've Post-it™ noted my office toilet hand dryers with the same message as below.
Image

But after 3 days, people got bored because they had already seen it over and over, so I started replacing the Post-it™ notes with cryptic, surreal, or just plain silly messages. (Also, they do not know it is me, and I am a dab hand at acting as surprised as everybody else)

"I am watching you pee"
"Every time you press this button, a man on the other side of the world gets hit with a comically oversized mallet"
"The sound of this machine hides the screaming of lost souls"
"Your co-workers are ransacking your desk as you read this. We know about your stash of Sweet 'n' Low*"
"Before this machine was installed, we hired a guy who could blow really hard"
"Press me! And do not dry of natural causes"

As I read I tend to select the block of text that my eyes are traveling over. Doing this while reading Felstaves sig' makes a neat falling down hill effect. (I don't know if that is the best way to describe it, but that is the the best I can think of right now.)

I went though a stage (when I was a hotel room cleaner) of writing Haiku poetry, and leaving them in odd places where guests could find them.

Also (I wish I thought this one up, but it was suggested by a friend) I have, on occasion, put up lost pet posters that say...

I don't think of myself as that weird, just not normal. The only weird things I do regularly are that as I'm walking along my hands unconsciously "dance" to the music that's in my head/I'm humming (I have no iPod) and that my thoughts are very tangential and cryptic so half the time my replies are met with blank stares for 10 seconds until someone goes "I get it".

As for the shoeless stuff, my best friend does that and received his 99.90% end of high school certificate (at a formal occasion, I was wearing a tie with ducks on it), in a t-shirt, shorts, sandals and a half-grown beard. I generally play straight man to his antics.

Best weirdness I can think of at the moment:
A couple of years ago some friends and I went into the city, bought some $2 plastic swords from The Reject Shop and proceeded for the rest of the night to be either in a bout or carrying our swords in a awesome way. I had mine Blade style down my back which was very uncomfortable but a quick draw. Unfortunately they all broke by the end of the night.

Plans for the future:
I've set my eyes on getting a python for my next birthday, and now plan to take it to uni one day and have it in my bag, just to freak people out.

Also I am a member of the Uni Pirate's Club, Cosmic Hitchhikers, Sci-fi and others which I can't remember, so that allows for the venting of much weirdness.

The books of wisdom sound like a great idea, I shall try to start some down-under.

My new mission is to go around rendering random inanimate objects amusingly/disturbingly anthropomorphic by adding eyes to them. I may post pictures once I've done some.



Well I thought I was being original then read this thread and now know other share my appreciation for random harmless vadalism. I got self adhesive googly eyes that will not damage the surface when removed. My first public event with evidence is here.

Once I get a hold of some Orange spray paint I will create another bit of random comical vandalism. The set up is my school has lots of underground tunnels and by a new building there is a line spray painted with an arrow describing it as "Tunnel Edge" and just begging to be changed to "Secret Tunnel Edge" or maybe "Secret Tunnel Edge. Shhhhhh"

My friends and I went downtown a few days ago and marched everywhere in a single-file line. We would randomly enter buildings and weave between tables and such before leaving soon after.

More of a direct approach...

Also, I didn't know if this counted as "weird," but I've always done it vaguely thinking i was making the world a... happier? place. I like to leave pennies heads-up lying in (mostly random) places where people are likely to find them, but where it doesn't necessarily look like they were left intentionally. People love to find pennies heads-up; they think it's lucky. Am I just feeding superstition? (Do I care? :P)

I've been planning to spread gold-painted quarters around my school. My favorite idea so far is to feed a bunch into a vending machine and push the coin return so I get refunded and some fool gets a gold coin as change.
I've also thought of slipping them into lockers through the vent-things, dropping them in backpacks etc.
I've heard that touch-up paint for cars or fingernail polish would work well. Any other suggestions?

I've always been partial to the "ordinary object with unusual presentation" approach. "Object" here includes people. Think Patch Adams where they said hello to people by hanging upside down from a tree branch.

Examples of things that I've done or my friends have done include:

  • placing a teacup and saucer on the top of a 10 foot tall library bookshelf
  • placing credit card applications in the traditional african art display in the student union, complete with a card that read "Ancient African Credit Card Applications"
  • standing on the roof of the student union and yelling "CATCH!" and then throwing Frisbees at random students in the crowd who seem to be having a bad day (almost got in a heap of trouble for that one)
  • Drawing cryptic messages in sidewalk chalk downtown. If followed, they became clues which led you to 1984. (the arcade we have downtown)
  • Getting into the tunnels that run under campus, and talking to students through the grates. There's actually a few that we had 10 minute conversations with before they stopped to think "Wait... why is this guy underground right now?" I would recommend this kind of thing for any social interaction... anything you can do to take them off of autopilot will result in a better conversation.
  • We flyered two rows of Escalades at the caddy dealership next to wal-mart with "STOP bed wetting" flyers we picked up at wal-mart.
  • A female friend and I attempted to find the most embarrassing combination of things to buy at 3 am at wal-mart. The winner was condoms, cool whip, tampons, jumper cables, a padlock, a super soaker, 50 feet of nylon rope, a 5 pack of white cotton panties, and a maxim magazine. We maximized the weirdness for the cashier by getting all starry eyed looking at each other as if we were buying supplies for one hell of a night. The next time I went the cashier remembered me, and I started talking to her. We were friends for like two years after that, until she moved away. :(

Our idea is to find someone walking around downtown and follow them around single file, while carrying news papers. Anytime they turn to look at us we would stop and lift the papers up like we are reading them. The news papers would have obvious eye holes cut out of them.

Nice.

Another time, we stood on the roadside near our school and would point at cars in the distance (to get their attention) and then violently through up the "peace sign," yelling "peace you!" when they passed. If anyone wasn't paying enough attention, it would have looked like we were all flipping them off.

Sounds rather like geocaching without the need for a GPS. :D

Side note: At my music college we regularly have little activity days for people (Go Karting, Paintballing... etc.) who pay a reduced fee. Students. :D

Now... the posters that they used to advertise these are just basic Microsoft Publisher docs that have been printed on coloured paper...

What I intend to do is grab a spare one, and copy the layout. Except I'm going to change a few details. Now it'll say something like, "All day orgy and coke party." etc.

Was tempted to set the date for April 1st, but we have time off now, too late. But I'll set these around everywhere, and maybe get the student liaison officer in on the gag. And the we can see how many people come up to her brandishing consent forms and payment for the "Orgy". :D

Ideas?

I was planning to tape up flyers for "Moose Cycle: the musical", complete with clip art of a moose on a bike and our school's theatre group's logo (stolen from the website), but I decided against it.
I may still do it and put the location as an abandoned warehouse somewhere. I would not leave anything at the warehouse.

Some friends and myself are thinking about re-enacting this prank from Improv Everywhere in my Computer Science class. I'm also thinking about doing it in the Student Union, but that'd involve carrying computers a bit further (in the CompSci building, I have access to a room I can use to stash the computers in).

My wedding is going to have the Jaws theme tune as the bride walks up the aisle.

Then, the vicar/priest/imam or whatever will be all like "let us stand for our first hymn" and it's totally gonna be an organ version of "Never Gonna Give You Up".
Away, you scullion! you rampallion! You fustilarian! I'll tickle your catastrophe.

I seem to have gone to several costume parties and themed mufti days for school lately.

So that's why the people around where I live have been treated to 80's rock star, Charlie from Willy Wonka, and a bloody dangerous fairy.

Also (I wish I thought this one up, but it was suggested by a friend) I have, on occasion, put up lost pet posters that say...

I don't know why this brings me so much happiness

"..And so the point I was try... O, cute kitten!"

Imagine meeting someone who actually was that absent and you can picture my conversations with people.
[quote]
I do that too! Admiuttedly, it's almost as much becaus cats are totally the most awesome thing on the planet, but I am that absent. Also, I occasionally break off a conversation in mid-sentence to chase after a squirrel, buit that is intentionally to weird people out.

Two things I've wanted to do recently:
the first involves a wooden fish, two hideous matching suits (preferably in one bright ccolor like yellow or lime green), and my cell phone. Maybe some flyers.
I walk through a park or the square at the local university, handing out fliers or saying the "_____s are coming," with an informative (not crazy) voice. My cell phone rings, I check the number, say "oh, no.." pull a wooden fish from my jacket and hand it to the nearest person. I say "hold this a minute, would you?" and bolt. Two people wearing the matching suits walk though asking people (especially whoever I gave the fish to) if they saw someone of my description, possibly with a pet badger. Improv from there onward. Requires four people: person with fliers, person to call the cell phone, and two people to wear the suits.

Also, hiring Ed McMahon and a Rick Astley impersonator to live rickroll Rick Astley himself. Ridiculously impractical, but still.

(PS; I used the chicken nuggets, no pickles, but since it was arbys and I don;t eat chicken nuggets, I ordered a BLT, no pickle no onion. It was just enough out of the orniary tht the cashier didn't notice until the next person was placing their order)
The Summoning of Dragons. Single copy, first edition, slighty foxed and extremely dragoned.

I do tons of things, but changing every PC's screensaver to fake BSOD, and then having Rick Roll play on log on are my favorites.
EDIT
In my school, I left that part out
