    Well, not exactly. But still very fun. My friends and I found that, on my school's mac network, we can forcefully "screen share" with another person while they're using it. No administrator password/account required, just the use of an account called "student" that is installed on every computer at the school.

    Steps to reproduce (try it without admin accounts):

    Open Finder.
    Go to the Network.
    Find the other computer, and open it (make sure screen sharing is enabled).
    Click on screen sharing in the upper right corner.
    Login as a non-admin account on that computer.
    Go nuts!

    Edit: More fun things to try: log on to a computer remotely and talk to people :p.

    Side note: screen sharing from computer A to computer B while B is already looking at A's screen results in one of those infinite mirror effects. Also, it won't crash your computer over short periods of time, so feel free to test it.

    I had a screenshot of two of my computers doing so, but I deleted it. It's fun. :D
