LOL i tried something like this once, and the bucket fell on me, drenching me with ice cold water, and then the bucket bonked me on the head. D'oh! And, probably the worst part of it was, was that I had just called the victim, so they got to watch the whole scene.  I happened to be a little upset at that particular moment, (wonder why? lol) so I said "You better get outta here, coz im getten mad!!" and they look up in "mid-laugh" and say "Why are you mad?" and I'm all "CUZ THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!!" and then im all *facepalm* "I wasn't supposed to say that" and they laffed soooooooooooo hard.
Pure gold epic fail

I did this with a plastic shopping bag and a girls hair rubber band thingy, when it fell the rubber band shot off and the bag covered my vic and it didnt hurt them like a bucket but still cool idea with the bucket

You'd better tie a piece of string or something to the bucket or someone might get knocked out...

I played this one with those little 20c rubber bouncy balls. Hilarious!
Yeah, it was hilarious until mum got up and started yelling... lol

This is a bad idea as the water bucket may not actually tip completely over to empty the water before the bucket lands on the victims head.  the full weight of the water in the bucket could cause a range of injuries from bruising to neck trauma.  :-(
Apple_4_life (author)  DangerArt5 years ago
 the only way that the bucket were to not tip over would if there was a string attached to the handle, the only way for the bucket to fall is to have it off balance so when you open the door the bucket tips over, or to push against the door really hard

 again can't you please rate more then just a 3.09? thats all you've put! (sorry its just I thought that this was a better instructable than the other 3)
Your right, It was a better instructable than the other three.

Actually, I rated it a 5.0, but it averages out the rating, even if another person rates it 5.0 it won't show up as a 5.0, the rating will just increase respectively.
Apple_4_life (author)  LoneWolf5 years ago
 OHHHH..... how strange
Yeah, but I like it cause' then some idiot can't go around taking instructables rated 5.0 and move them down to 0.5
Apple_4_life (author)  LoneWolf5 years ago
Now it has 6 ratings, you can see how it slowly changes.
