I spent the weekend with a high school friend. We were recalling some of the evil things we did for laughs.

So, what evil things did you do as a kid or teenager for laughs?

Better; what evil things did you do for a laugh when you were alone?

Stories glorifying lawlessness or physical violence are not encouraged, though I am no one's moral compass.

Murph'll be all over this in the morning, unless it's some sort of Canadian Holiday celebrating the St. Lawrence Seaway, or wool.

The boards have been so dead today, I thought I'd give you something to play with.

I need to wait for other responses first, so I know what's appropriate to share. You know I always think about what's appropriate before I contribute.

Always.

Mine are lame. I'm out.

There may be a medical school story or two if I can jog my memory.

I shot a man in Reno... just to watch him die.

Too bad you already wasted the banana suit on us. Pity is such an ugly emotion when the receiver is one's self.

OK. I'll start with one.

Most of the taller bldgs. in Boston were being built while I was in high school. The elevator technology wasn't what it is now and the first touch-sensitive light-up buttons were just coming into use. Many of them had a fatal flaw that I accidentally discovered.

So, as an afterschool law-firm messenger, I would go to the delivery address and wait with everyone else for the next lift. If there were too many people, and I were going to the 28th floor, I would try to be the first one on.

I would stand in the corner blocking everyone's view of the buttons, as they each would call out their floor. The minute I got on, I had punched the whole panel right in the middle and all the buttons would light up. I'd just be saying "Got it, got it. Anyone else?"

When the elevator would stop at the 2nd floor, I'd dash out and hear, as the doors closed, the tumtultuous grumbling when 11 people saw that every floor button was lighted. Then, grinning wildly, I would get on the first elevator to stop @ #2 next, which was always empty, and I'd have an express ride to #28.

All of mine are pretty lame too. I usually got caught and punished for minor crimes. Such as in school one day, I unplugged the clock on the wall and stuffed the cord up inside it. Then when the teacher looked away, I would stand up and change the time to be just a little faster than it normally would have been, in an attempt to get out of class sooner. (There were no bells in this school). I got caught and actually got a paddling for it in the principle's office.

I don't have any evil stories, but if we had acts of stupidity, I'm in. I learned a lot as a youngster...

Mine all trend more towards the acts of stupidity than they do toward bad things too.

Here's another one. I was in the Army at Fort Hood, TX. I know a little about auto mechanics, having completed a 9 month course in it before joining the Army (Only to learn I really didn't like to get greasy and the pay was too low). One of the people I encountered and rode around a bit in his volkswagen complained about it having an overall lack of power. I told him I could probably fix that, but he'd have to buy a ring kit and gaskets for it. He agreed. I took his engine out and dismantled it under a tree. I should of waited for him to buy the kit first, which he never did. I noticed it was beginning to rust real good sitting there in pieces. Then I got orders to leave the country and bye, bye, I'm off.

I still wonder what he did with his car with the engine in small pieces off to the side. I keep thinking I'll get off of work one evening and find my engine in small pieces beside my car in the parking lot.
