Most Pranks are Illegal, but If we registered them first...
This Idea's probably been done already,
but I ran out of patience searching for it.
Basically, everything fun in terms of
pranks, is illegal, even harmless ones. We
could create two things. a list of legal
pranks, that one could inflict on another
without fear of having their spleen sued
out. These you could do any time, without
a permit, and no one could stop you
The second would be a prank registry,
where you could register:
1) Things that you do not want involved in
2) Pranks you would like to do. A small
amount of reimbursement would be
required, but if the prankee did not want
to be pranked, they would be registered
already. If you cause damage, it's not your
fault, becasue the prankee didn't register.
Within reasonable limits, of course. No
physically harming people, but sneaking
ex-lax into their coffee is okay.
No pranks on people under the age of 6,
no pranks on people under the age of 18
without parental consent.
This leaves opportunities to order
strippers to City Hall, or fill your
neighbour's pool with gelatin. Laws of
trespass, slander and vandalism could be
temporarily suspended. You could steal
someone's car in the night and send it to
China if you really want to. Or replace all
their business clothing with hawaiian
shirts and speedos. Throw a dummy filled
with pigs organs from the butcher off a
tall building into the city centre. It's all
legal if you've got the right permit.
Finally, if prank vandalism happened
without a permit, the pranksters would be
punished like regular.

Got my sister with the Police Warrants prank [Klaatu, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 17 2004]
||I would, but I'm not an extreme sporter
or a criminal mastermind. This way is
easier for pranksters, because they
don't have to worry about getting
caught. plus, it'll create many new
government jobs. I think that's a good
||How about releasing the prankee's information for future
retaliation, keeping the whole "balance" thing.
||Rather than an opt-out model, how about an opt-in system. In order to obtain any useful information from the library of pranks available, you fill in a form which opts you in to being on the receiving end of anything contained within.
This way, people who want to prank have a ready list of people who will get similar enjoyment out of it and will join in the game. It also means that people who would rather go about their business don't have to register to protect themselves.
||sure.. u are literally here twisting my arm untill i vote for u.. but it sounds interesting. just don't play any pranks on me plz. i don't apreciate it. but if u do- u know there's always revenge, and i think that ure sisters would help me on that. and no--- i'm too busy to register my cat right now. i'm very busy and important thankyou!
