I wish there were photos of this.
I've always wondered how many packing peanuts it would take to fill up the average size house.
Would be especially fun if you could get them with that special mono charged coating they use in lightweight concrete -- so they stick to stuff, but cannot be swept up or stuffed in trash bags easily.
Re: Man's Apartment Encased in Aluminum Foil
That is a very intersting find eyelikeart. I would like to see a photo also. Maybe you could get a magazine to send you on special assignment.
Ugh this is worse than that metal Apple uses in the finder
Wow, that's truly amazing - you could just imagine what was going through his mind when he walked in the door and saw all that.
Even better that it got national coverage
OMG that's great!
I bet he has a problem with sun glare and the room getting very warm. What a waste of good foil
That is awesome! Kind of like the TLC show "while you were out."
Hmmm, my sister goes on a 2 week vacation every summer, and I generally house sit for her ... =)
Very clever, he'll be completely immune from government mind control
Reminds me of the wonderful trick some university students played on their fellow dorm student. While he was out, they disassembled his car and reassembled it in his dorm room. I think it was at Cal Tech.
Yes, it was at Cal-Tech. It was a Ford Model-T and the prank was pulled at Ricketts House if I remember correctly.
I have a book named "Is This the Way to Baker House?" about the history of ingenious pranks (called "hacks") at M.I.T. My favorite was when a police car appeared on top of the "Great Dome" on Building 10.
I found a web page about it.
I wonder what that would do for his WiFi signal...
Heh, I have a book called "Legends of CalTech" that has the prank history of CalTech.
They alien proofed his house...
I wish I had friends like that.
me too...I wanna pull a prank like this one...
That's the badger!
That is brilliant! Now to find someone to do it to over here...hmmmm...
it would be quite impressive - you'd need some help and a lot of time. Also someone with a small apartment
Exactly. It would be a bit tricky with electronics, esp with plastic & static electricity. I'm quite sure I could round up a few people to help me out if the time ever came to foil someone's place.
Come to think of it, this could easily be done to someone's car.
Now that sir, is a good idea!
I love this prank! It's esentially harmless and does "raise the bar" with the levels of details the friend went to cover everything, and put it back in place.
The funniest prank I heard about involving a car was seeing one get the 'shake and bake' treatment. On a hot summer day someone sprayed down a car with low grade vegtible oil and then covered it with about 20? lbs of bread crumbs and seasoning. Apparently the heat of the afternoon sun helped dry up the sludge like oil and make the bread crumbs into a wet, but still kind of crusty coating on the metal and glass. After the owner comes back to his car and the joke is done, the car or paint isn't ruined. They just had to scrape off the windows and head to the nearest car wash to clean up.
doing that in say Phoenix in the summer when its 110 outside would work nicely.
I still love the chia car
I used to pull a similar one to a neighbor back when I was about 12. I used to throw birdseed in his garden during the summer. Chances for rain are always 50/50 here it seems, so it almost always rained soon after. I don't know if he ever figured out why his garden kept sprouting.
