As for what you need:
Some Tape (Scotch or Packaging, either works)
A mouse (your victims mouse)
I tried this earlier this year but I used clear tape with a trollface and a caption:"Problem?"

or you could just take the marble ball thing out but keep it in a safe place an return it in an hour or so
you can do that???
Our school some year ago switched to optical mouse because we alway stole the marble. At the end they were ordering new marble monthly, it ended up being cheaper getting new optical mouse :)
ya, tried that at the library computers

Actually scotch tape does work on optical mouses! FUN!!
haha. at school. my friend n I were sharing a computer. so when he wasnt looking i connected another mouse to the computer and started controlling it behind my back. hahahaha, he was genuinely shocked. I opened paint and drew in his name. hahahahaha, he was so scared. but then some spoil sport rocked up and gave it away. he beat me so hard after that

This works with optical mice as well. Using the semi transparent stuff on an opticalmouse can produce some WIERD effects.

You could also just open the mouse up, cut the wires that connect to the ball. and then close it. Works every time 4.5/5 Stars
