Before your parents come home, go to the door they usually come in by and stretch plastic wrap across the frame and when they come home they'll open the door and walk right into it! Get's 'em every time! But make sure it's a door they open towards themselves!

Today in the morning, like at 1 AM, I had a bucket of cold water and a string was tied to it and the other side was tied to my dad's wrist. When he woke up this morning he got a really cold shower. Ha Ha Ha.

I looked serious and said, "Look girl, I heard something real bad about you. Huh uh. They said that they saw you picking your nose and wiping it all over the place. Even in your food and ate it. APRIL FOOL!"

Does your mom or dad use see-through plastic shampoo?
YOU WILL NEED:

  • Plastic wrap
  • Elastic band

Sneak into the bathroom. See the see-through plastic shampoo bottle? Is it full of shampoo? Good. Unscrew the lid of the shampoo bottle. put the plastic wrap around the open part of the bottle. Tie the elastic band around the plastic wrap. Your parents will wonder what happened to the shampoo! Huh? what? Huh? IT'S CLOGGED! Until they open it and find out there's plastic wrap around it!

This really works but you can't be snickering in the background before it happens. If you have a sink with a squirting extension, it will work. Have the attachment facing where a person usually stands when they turn on the sink. Tie a very tight elastic band around the engaging switch. Make sure the rubber band works. Wait for a victim. They won't know what hit 'em.

I just mixed up eight-spoonfuls of chili powder in a bottle of water so that it looked like the popular orange drink. I took another bottle full of water and dissolved 10 spoonfuls of salt in it. Just in case anyone felt the chili-mixture was too hot, the "water" would cool them down!

First you have to know a friend's locker combination. This can be done if you go to the office or something among those lines, then say your name is your friend's whose locker you're trying to prank. Then say you forgot your locker combination and they'll tell you. Open the locker and fill it all the way to the top with balls of paper, at the top put water ballons in it. When you watch, try not to act too obvious. This prank rocked. Try it yo'.

The next time you have a sleepover, stay up late until one or all of your friends fall asleep. As soon as they are asleep get some shaving cream or whipped cream. Put the cream on the palm of their hand. Start tickling their face, then wait and watch how they react! Signing off this is G-UNIT MAN.

My dad came home one day and told me that he found somebody that sold horses. He did this knowing I love horses and I freaked out running around the house saying "I got a horse!" Until he finally told me, "April fools!"

No one is given a gun. A person has to acquire a permit, and then has to buy a gun for themselves.  Okay, yes, mental health is an obvious issue. But it needs to be for specific mental health problems. It can't be just because someone has a mental illness, because many mental illnesses won't effect the operation and use of a gun, or make it more likely for a person to hurt someone else with a gun. I support background checks which would include mental health history, but only if it's done right. Similarly, the guy who killed 49 people in Orlando was taken off the FBI watchlist. This tells me that there are flaws with the way that the watchlist is currently being used. Once that system is redone, then we can restrict those on it from buying firearms. But at its' current success rate? Not a chance.  And it's not about what's necessary...well to an extent it is, but hear me out. Weapons are used for self defense. No matter how many gun laws you have, criminals will still use firearms in their crimes. Citizens require at least an equal amount of protection that criminals use to break the law.  In other words, if you were to be the victim of gun violence, would you rather have with you a knife or a gun? Would you honestly bring a knife to a gun fight?  First of all, I agree with you. Mental health is definitely an issue! But together these issues can be addressed!!!! And as I said earlier, we can control our weapons. The government can create a harder way to get a gun or any weapon. Look at criminal records!!!! Even before getting a permit, or a license, CHECK THE RECORDS!!! This will help prevent these mass shootings.

The amendmant is there for a reason. Weapons are useful for protection. Protection is going to keep us alive. The human population, as a nation, and as a world! If we take away our weapons now we are all dead! We don't want that.  Now, killing 50 people in the Orlando shooting. That is just not right at all. It was not the gun's fault, it was the person. Same thing with the death of Christina Grimmie. Now, I personally believe that we should not take guns away, but we should find a harder process into buying a gun or some other weapon, and we should be trained properly! Look at people's criminal records, look at their other records. I don't care! As long as we still have protection, but less mass shootings! Omg, so true.
