Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies
1 chair (free)
1 table (free)
67-100 feet of 230 lb test rope ($15-??)
1 ladder (free)
Some extra help
good knot tying skills (also optional)
Gloves (you guessed it! Optional)
Step 2: Join the Light Side!
It is best to get on the best possible side you can get on with the custodians. They are your main ingredient in this prank! Custodians provide your ladder and scissors (and sometimes a band-aid). Consider your plan a no-go if your a mess maker!
Step 3: Recruit!
Find some buddies, any will do that will keep their trap shut until April 1st. Having tall friends is an added benefit.
Step 4: Attire
Maybe the best attire would be black spandex with ski masks but you do not want to look too suspicious.
Step 5: Throw Like an Olympian!
Your going to need to add weight of some kind to the end of your rope, I used my box cutter (that I had to swap for a pair of scissors because it stabbed me) to bring the end of the rope to the ground. Note: leave the knife closed!
Step 6: Through the Eye of the Desk?!?!?
Thread your rope through the desk by inside of the triangle tingy that keeps the legs from folding in on themselves, or find a place to thread your rope through on the chair that you are sure it wont slide off or out.
Step 7: Tie Like a Sailor!
Do your stuff with the rope! ANYTHING that will keep your object from falling will be a good alibi just in case you get in trouble. Just make sure no one can reach the knots or rope at all for that matter.
Step 8: Test(ing)
Test all of your knots by applying most to all of your own weight on the rope, just to be sure.
Step 9: GTFO
Get your crap, and leave no finger prints (if your school is the kind of school that has metal detectors in its halls). Your crap should consist of your camera, and your gloves, and maybe some scrap rope. Put everything in its EXACT place, and cover your tracks.
Step 10: Enjoy the Look/confusion on Your Victims Faces
Note: Some things came up that I was unaware of, there was volley ball practice (50+ witnesses) and I couldn't get into the school at a later time so I only had 1 choice.
Congratulate your buddies and try to look as surprised as the victims!
