Educational institutions in some parts of the world like Australia, the United Kingdom and the USA are well-known for the long-standing tradition of senior pranks. The senior students of a high school, college or university pull an organized prank at the end of their senior year as a way of leaving the school.
In the United States, some schools have banned the tradition of senior pranks and replaced it with subtler graduating activities to ensure that the senior students do not vandalize or destroy any institutional property.
Not all pranks are equal and some college students take the game too seriously than others. The senior 2018 class at Cumberland High School based in Wisconsin, is such a case. These creative students staged an accident scene that looked so real that even the local cops loved it.
Fake Accident Scene
The seniors organized themselves to come up with something that would be remembered for a long time. They wanted to make a great mark before leaving high school to join college or pursue other interests. These young kids put their minds together and came up with a legit prank.
On Monday morning, students and teachers arrived at the high school only to find a shocking scene. They saw a white car that had crashed into the side of one wall of their school, leaving just the dark half visible. Piles of bricks resulting from the car crash had been thrown all over. It seemed like a real accident scene.
At first glance, even 2nd glance, the site looked so real that the people were convinced it was an actual accident, but taking a further closer look at the shocking sight, the teachers and high school students saw a different story.
Actually, the gaping hole in the building was made out of some black tarp together with duct tape. The white car had been sliced in half and was only resting against the wall. The surrounding bricks had been put there to make the scene look more real. This was so surprising. The teens had chosen to go for an elaborate prank, without destroying any school property.
Local Police Department is Impressed
At first, the fake accident scene looked so real that the police were called in to inspect it. They were so impressed just like anyone else there with the fact that the graduating students had been able to set such an incredible prank without damaging the school property.
They loved the prank so much that they gave the school a shout out on their Facebook page. The law enforcement guys congratulated the seniors for the best ever prank seen in the Cumberland High School. The social media post sent by the police department received numerous comments from online users. People were amazed by the prank and how the local police reacted.
Social Media Views
The Facebook posts seen in the pages of the police department and the school district’s too about the seniors’ prank in Wisconsin have been shared more than 3000 times. The news spread like wildfire across the world. Social media users from as far as Britain praised the seniors for being so creative and the police too for their take on the prank.
Just with some tape, black tarp, car parts, and bricks, these creative youngsters were successful in pulling off one of the most epic pranks ever witnessed in schools. The fact that they got an honorable mention from the cops just goes to show that it was really good.
Other epic pranks that have been witnessed include the mystery of the missing letter W and the seniors who employed a mariachi band to constantly follow their principal for the entire day.
The Infamous but Hilarious Canadian Sign War of 2021
Towards the end of April 2021, an odd thing happened in the town of Listowel, Canada. Two businesses decided to get snarky with each other in a public manner. On the one side of the street was a Speedy Glass venue, a small business firm that serviced the locals with glass and vehicle window repair. On the other side of the street was the local Dairy Queen, a fast-food chain venue for burgers, fries and milkshakes.
Big Things Come in Small Packages
The sign battle started off simple enough. Both businesses had a typical elevated advertising sign in front of their venue visible from the street which could utilize letters to customize messages. Speedy Glass decided to use theirs to goad the Dairy Queen in a word battle. It started off as a copycat. Trevor Cork had seen a similar little tiff in Virginia that went bonkers on the Internet, so he decided to try the same in his own town. Gathering the staff, Cork had their Speedy Glass street sign modified to send the invite, basically asking the Dairy Queen if they wanted to have a sign war. It took off from there like wildfire. Trevor had no idea where the reaction was going to end up going, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Dairy Queen sassed back pretty quick and put Speedy Glass on the spot. From there, both double entendres and outright one-up’s started flying back and forth, much to the amusement of the locals driving by and living in the area. Interestingly, both stores have kept their cool and not gone below the belt with their snips, but they have been pretty funny and challenging as the signs keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
Of course, anytime someone is having fun, others want in on it too. The local casket store got in on the mix pretty quick and started their own shots. However, they didn’t have a big road sign and had to settle for a street-level A-sign instead. The locals loved it so much they started telling their friends and contacts outside of town, and Listowel started attracting tourists for the same as well.
A War is a Good Thing These Days
The timing of the sign war couldn’t have been better. The Covid pandemic was just depressing people something fierce, and the lack of social connection was making things worse. Suddenly, having a bit of humor and a good laugh with many of the business signs and their message conflict got everyone laughing their heads off driving by. It also amazingly brought the whole together as a community again when it needed that feeling the most. As some folks reflected on social media, the Listowel sign war was the best thing that could happen to them right there and then. Even now, folks still keep driving through town just to see the latest zingers and zaps on the local signs.
Will Listowel sign war eventually end and become a memory? Who knows? Even the infamous Hatfield and McCoy feud finally died out at some point. In the meantime, Listowel business owners like Trevor Cork are just enjoying the attention and the visitors, even in a pandemic.
Man Creates AI Program To Alert Him And Greet Dogwalkers in His Community
Dogs are deemed as man’s best friend for a multitude of reasons. What we have to understand, though, is that the love has to be shown to the dog as much as we want to be delivered to us.
Watching someone walking their dog is a pastime that never grows old, to the point that one man decided to build a hi-tech machine to detect when dogs and their owners were passing by his home.
Is that a thing? Certainly it is, and it has been bringing immense joy to him as well as the pups and their masters as they pass by his home.
Some people think it’s cute, others eerie, but no one can deny the thought and creativity behind developing that machine.
This may become the new greeting technology based on the incredible level of responses that have been pouring out towards both the owner and his creation, as you’ll learn below.
If you have at any point spent an evening(or the whole year 2020) on the internet looking at adorable dog videos, you’ll understand why Ryder of YouTube fame decided to create a computer, powered by Artificial Intelligence, which is able to discern dogs walking along the street pass their house and instantly shout praises to the dog walkers or owners.
His Youtube program is called Ryder Calm and has earned quite a following.
Getting things done by looking at the real puppers has always been better than wasting time and looking at only pictures of puppies, so the development began as an automated manner for Ryder to identify when somebody was walking down the street past their home. The computer, which is based on a Raspberry Pi, assesses a live feed from the camera module and employs a machine learning model (in this case, the YOLOv3) that has been programmed to recognize about Eighty different items, including people, vehicles, and dogs.
When a passing puppy is detected, an alarming automated text-to-speech voice warns Ryder via an actual megaphone, allowing them to rush to the window on time to catch sight, no matter what they’re doing.
Watching dogs is obviously not just his passion, but clearly an activity that his entire family enjoys doing. They enjoy it so much that they’ve programmed the system to function even during their absence. If that isn’t innovative, then what is?
For those occasions when they aren’t home to hear the alarm, the system can be programmed to play a pre-recorded “I like your dog!” message through the window, providing a complimentary dopamine boost to anybody walking their dog down Ryder’s street.
It’s a random and somewhat weird act of generosity, but I think we’d all take something at this stage. After all, any good gesture is better than the negativity endured throughout 2020, right?
Caught On Camera – Funny & Wild Trail Cam Photos
Wild trail camera photos are great. They catch wild animals in their real habitat doing their real behavior unaffected by the intrusion of humans or anything else. And, animals being animals, some of them do the most oddball things caught on camera when they think nobody is looking. After all, animals work on a totally different ruleset and world than us. How we interpret that perspective, however, tends to give a giggle once in a while.
Look Into The Future and See How Your Favorite Celebrities Will Age
Time and age have been a blessing or curse for humanity through the ages. Regardless of being rich or poor, time eventually catches up with everyone. The effect is welcomed by some and feared by others, but we all get there eventually. Age has been reflected in the arts in thousands of ways which, ironically, has allowed images of people to live thousands of years longer than their biological form. Today, our celebrities are no different; they age just as much as anyone else. However, successful stars have a lot of tricks up their sleeve with cosmetics, exercise and similar to fend off the appearance of aging far better than most, which is not surprising given how much appearance matters in their industry. So, it was a bit of a shock for everyone when a computerized what-if via Face-App was displayed recently showing a number of the stars aged significantly. Some turned out okay, even more distinguished. Others, well, not so much.
Dirty Sock Goes Viral
Social media is a very intriguing place, and just about anything can go viral these days—anything from a dancing cat to a romantic proposal. Sometimes, people post things on social media without the expectation of going viral, but some stories like the one today were just too good not to be viewed by millions of people.
Kids are notorious for leaving dirty laundry thrown around their room. They expect their parents to clean up after them, but it’s just something kids love to do. A mom from Port Townsend, Washington, had quite an interesting response to her daughter leaving dirty socks around the house.
Ms.Campbell had the idea of waiting for her daughter out, in a sort of “social experiment” with the hopes her daughter would clean up after herself. She left the dirty sock in place without picking it up.
The “Forgotten Sock,” the name the dirty sock on the bathroom floor came to be known as wasn’t an uncommon thing around the home of the Campbell’s. Just like most parents usually have to do, she would pick up the socks and throw them in with the dirty laundry, but this time she wished to switch things up a little. She decided it would be a great idea to play the waiting game with her daughter and see just how long she would leave a dirty sock lying on the floor. I know I’m guilty of leaving dirty clothes around my home once or twice before.
To her surprise, a week had gone by, and the sock was still on the bathroom floor. This was when she took to social media with her master plan of sorts. She did what any other parent would do, took pictures of it and labeled them, posting it on her Facebook account. She wrote about a paragraph describing what was taking place and hilariously calling her daughter an artist and describing the sock as “mixed media.”
The Campbell’s are a light-hearted family, and Ms. Campbell looked at this as more of a joke than anything else. She figured her daughter would find her post a bit funny and roll along with it. She assumed her daughter, who is her friend on Facebook, would eventually run into the post and pick her sock up, but that wasn’t the case. The series of events following this is best described as comical.
Most kids use social media nowadays, so it’s not surprising that her daughter ran into her mom’s post. After seeing the bar, her daughter sent her a text asking if she put the label on the picture. Instead of getting mad like most people her age would, she had a surprising response. Instead of picking up the dirty sock on the bathroom floor, she hilariously put the iconic “Forgotten sock” on a small pedestal she made.
According to her interview done with Today’s Parents, she did not expect that reaction from her daughter. It took her by surprise when she went as far as making a pedestal for the sock, but they did have a really good laugh at the situation. They did enjoy the social media attention it received, and now it’s just an enjoyable time for them to look back on in the future.
