About: Well, i like skateboarding, snowboarding, and i ESPECIALLY love heavy metal, such as megadeth, slayer, metallica,children of bodom,and disturbed.

This is my first instructable, and my entry into the Project: Prank contest. This is a prank I made up and is very, very, very annoying but also extremely funny. Well without anymore stupid blurbs . on to the instructable :}  

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials

For this Instructable you will nedd to acquire 2 things:

1. An egg
2. Any small, sharp object, I used a corn cob skewer
Now you need to start this project a couple weeks before you are going to do it, if you don't, you won't have the time to complete it and your evil plot will be foiled;}

Step 2: Poke a Hole in the Egg

Poke a tiny hole in the bottom of the egg so that it looks like the intro picture.

Step 3: Shoebox Time!

Put the egg in a shoebox and put it under your bed for a couple of weeks, this will get it nice and rotten on the inside.

Step 4: Put Egg Back in Carton

After the couple of weeks are over, take the shoebox out and put the egg back in the carton, wait for them to crack your egg into one of their favorite dishes, and...

Step 5: Watch Their Reaction!

Watch their reaction as foul smelling rotten egg spills all over their meal! 

Thank you for reading my first instructable, and I hope you find time to execute this wonderfully evil prank, too!

    LAME, i'll try it tommorow

    i know a way to defitely improve this prank , which i will tell in my own rotton egg instructable, but first, does the egg smell leak from the egg with that hole in th shell? or does the hole get sealed by dry egg whites?, i dont wana do this indoors and end up with rotten egg smell in my room. now, the way to improve this prank is with a bti of chemistry as you know the source of the smell is hydrogen sulfide, a dense smelly but heavy gas ammonium sulfide is a similar gas but has no odor properties what so ever but it does distribute it self in the air faster than hydrogen sulfide as its lighter than air. basicaly it rises up then truns to hydrogen sulfide after a reaction with the moisture in the air then sinks down and you smell it then it sinks down like all h2s does and gets destroyed by the sun. to do this inject the rotten egg with ammonia water concenstrated a bit, soap doesnt matter in this but you will need to boil it down a bit , about from 1l to 750ml or that ratio. then the amonia will reat with the h2s making ammonium sulfide which will distribute itself far better than the hydrogen sulfide will. by the way , ammonium sulfide is the one and only ingredient in stink vials or liquid stink bombs.

    let me make it simple .hydrogen sulfide smells like rotton egg, but doesnt move very fast in the air because it is heavier then air, ammonium sulfide is hydrogen sulfide with nitrogen in it, making it float around go all over the place realy fast. sunlight comes from the sun, it causes the nitrogen to come out of the ammonium sulfide , making it smelly old hydrogen sulfide , but instead of sitting on the ground like clear fog, its now all over the place and can be smelt from everywere , even in some cases all the ammonium sulfide evapourates and the smell goes everywhere exept hwere the stinkbomb exploded. ammonia water changes the hydrogen sulfide in the rotton egg into ammonium which will smell worse than the egg already does

    and i realy did mean it when i said you sometimes cant smell it from its point of irigin, i have personal expirience from when i set a glass vial of the stuff off in a persons bag, the bag didnt smell, just the whole gym during assembly, it depends on tempurature , wind movement and so on, if its realy hot but ot humid, it wont smell straight away, but if its cold and humid, like an air conditioned room in the tropics, e.g northern autralia, california or aisa, then it will smell striahgt away. i should point out though that if you directly make hydrogen sulfide, not ammonium, it will take 10 times more to start smelling it, so you may be inhaling damaging amouts of the gas. this is because the ammonium sulfide thins out in air , and doesnt collet in one area. never make the stuff with any more than a tablespoon, (of hydrogen sulfide solution), of it as the end result to let off, as it can couse slight nausia, which may lead people to think it was a chemical attack on the area. just use it sensibly
