Pyramid pranks


In the world of pranks, what causes people to take chances in delivering a great prank? The idea of playing pranks goes back to ancient times I’m sure. Prehaps its just an attempt at immortality. Burning the ultimate prank into the minds of the people with bewilderment.

How did they do that?

Why would they…. do that?

What is the point?

What does it mean?

With so many people involved someone must know who’s behind it. Right?

All the rapid fire questions seem to hang in the air, never really being answered except by speculations of those in aw. But isn’t that the point? To bring about aw? If we knew how the great pyramids of Egypt came to be. We may just look at them as common place. I mean, no one ever wonders about mole hills as if… I wonder? Truth is pranks shouldn’t be delivered in such a way that there are no questions that need answering. Where is the prank then? Half the fun of a really good prank is, leaving mystery to everyday life, with some sense of accomplishment for pulling it off. Much crop circles did about 10 or 15 years ago.

Yes some people may never find out just how it was done, and by whom? But there will be some fawned memories of the perfect prank remembered by everyone who experienced it.

Public pranks at time will also induce people to go and take part of the experience of it by seeing it first hand. So then, pranks can cause a buzz, and some economic growth. Much like a new store, shopping mall, or vacation destination. Prehaps much like the tree, with the likeness of the virgin Marry in the bark of the tree. People seem to wanted to go see that first hand. Seeing some man-made wonders of wonder through a well-played prank may cause interest in it. Leaving everyone with some good clean fun. celebrating the bizarre human ingenuity who came up with it in the first place…. I wonder if I do this… what will others think?

the truth has no agenda! a mind is a terrible thing to waste! not to pass on a smile that you receive from someone else is a missed opportunity and a lost moment to make a difrence in someone's life! To have choices made for you is to be held captive, to choose, is the first steps in freedom, to except responsibility is to fly and be free to experience life!

    • Im all for that, street art and all. But the bubble wrapping fun patrol is trying to remove all fun in life. Things fall on people you know? But then some people lacking common sense, probably are wondering… What will happen if I shake that…? So it is we live life without or at least limited street art, and bubble wrappings, saving ourself’s from our self’s. Love the fun patrol. NOT! But the table art was real cool, and people are coming from miles around. Just to see it. So It’s all good. Right? thanks for looking around. Cheers.

      • Sometime you have to wonder if childhood is designed to be so long so humans normally acquire an understanding of cause and effect….you know: toddlers fall down and learn it hurts to do that,… pre-school kids learn if you poke someone usually they slug you back and that hurts, so stop it….if you misuse a tool like a bike, or skateboard – it hurts, so stop it. Learning on a smaller scale to think before heading into life.
        Too much hovering by parents / authorities interrupts that learning process and lessen analytical skills?
        Maybe not
        But the stacks are creative – and people did get up and go look – and some may have even thought “what if….?”
        Maybe there’s hope!
