We did the flying saucer one as kids but I don't think we fooled anyone. We used tin foil and Drano mixed in a coke bottle. It makes hydrogen gas. We used it to fill balloons. One we filled and tied a long string to the balloon and lit it and sent it up. Then we ran following it. But I think the folks that saw us figured it was our doing.

A couple years ago for Halloween, (yes there is still a kid in me), I put a bunch of Blair Witch stick people in our woods, (big city park forest). They're way up in the trees. I'm not sure if I should give away the secret to getting them up there. So far, no one has noticed that I know of. I have added many. A few have fallen but I either took them away or put them back up. They are still there though now they are in a single area instead of all over.

I want to make crop circles one day in the field by the botanical garden. It wouldn't destroy any crops because it would just be in tall grass in a field.

And I've also thought of putting a fake crime scene in the woods for Halloween. It's been hard to get police tape, the kind that says, "crime scene, do not cross". I have only found something close but it says Dilbert or something like that on it. I want the scene to look real.

Here's an idea. Instead of just one person pulling the "image of religous figure" prank, heaps of us should do it, at the same date and time on a property in our own possessions. The media will spread the news of this irrefutable message from God and masses of devouts will travel to see these marvles. We can then charge these people huge amounts of money and we will all be rich as trolls. We can then afford to buy anything we want - luxury cars, mansions, Microsoft, Canada - World domination. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Hahah rofl! Best idea evah. We should do all 12 apostles at locations arranged across the continent at the points of over-lapping Stars of David. I call dibs on Judas.

You want CRIME SCENE TAPE, you want HAZ MAT TAPE, you want POLICE LINE TAPE, you want weird and funky stuff?

American Science and Suplus has it all at reasonable prices.

This is a great place I go to their Chicago store at least a half dozen times a year.

And they always have things I didn't even know I needed.

They also have a catalog.

Enjoy.

Sunday Halloween Irks Some in Bible Belt

Oct 15, 2:19 PM (ET)

By KRISTEN WYATT

NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) - Across the Bible Belt this Halloween, some little ghosts and goblins might get shooed away by the neighbors - and some youngsters will not be allowed to go trick-or-treating at all - because the holiday falls on a Sunday this year.

"It's a day for the good Lord, not for the devil," said Barbara Braswell, who plans to send her 4-year-old granddaughter Maliyah out trick-or-treating in a princess costume on Saturday instead.

I want in on the Jesus face in the tortilla like scam. I'll take any apostle since they are mostly the same.

We really should do some sort of multiple person scam. It would be great. Except someone like Verlch would probably give us away on it.
