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!"

Life having intrinsic value doesn't mean that a person's value can not increase or stagnate based upon their actions and character. Mass murderers, for example, are viewed as having less value (either to you or I, or society in general, but either way we perceive them differently) than an ordinary law-abiding citizen. In a similar way, a man has greater worth than a woman in certain situations, and a woman greater worth than a man in certain situations. It's not necessarily strictly based upon being a man or woman either, it's just what their general behavior is viewed as: for example, women are generally held to be more empathetic than men, therefore more people prefer to open their heart up to women because they believe they will be given a more sensitive response. Short of attaining ego death, you're always going to value people differently. It's very nice to say from an abstract, intellectual standpoint that all people are equal, but even in solely your own life you know this isn't how you actually look at things, unless you really are prepared to tell me that the worth of your parents or siblings or close friends or distant friends are not worth more to you than a stranger on the street. I just want to point out in bold that I'm making a distinction between intellectual (or hypothetical/theoretical) understanding of people being equal, either in general or between men and women, and the actual application of trying to apply that principle. It likely leads us to view the two as more equal than if we didn't hold the intellectual view that they're equal, but nonetheless there is always going to be a hint of bias located somewhere. One last thing just for any additional clarity it might provide, because I recognize I might be getting vague here: "Jolly-Rancher206" wrote:I'm saying at bottom one s//x does not have more value than another. I am saying that all people have different values, be they man or woman, but in many situations one is preferable to the other and therefore their value as you perceive it is greater at that time (context).

Well, go to his website and there is a picture of a new animatronic: Baby. But there is more than one animatronic, so why would he say one? :/

A favorite pet dying is not as tragic as a child starving in Africa.    I get it now. You have the iq level of a fish.  Yes. I agree 100%. A favorite pet dying is not as tragic as a child starving in Africa. But that has no bearing on how a child should feel if their pet dies, was my point.

Only about. You might be able to delude yourself into thinking the two have the exact same worth but that will never actually happen due to unconscious biases, nor does the principle translate into the real-world very well where people are not made of the same stuff and the worth of a person is based upon context and character. Hold up. Yeah people are biased and some may see one s//x as better than the other. And yes people don't live that way in the real-world. I'm saying at bottom one s//x does not have more value than another. One human being doesn't have more value than another. I don't believe someone's character or personality changes that. I can think someone is a bad person, does bad things, but still affirm they have as much worth as a person as I do. If one believes life has intrinsic value in the first place (can't be proven, touched measured, just is) then how can you go about distinguishing the amount of value someone has?
