Playing pranks is the spice of life, as long as it’s not too embarrassing or harmful, pranking can be a goldmine of memories for both prankster and victim. Like the time a colleague would find his QWERTY keyboard alphabetized, or his Windows 3.11 startup screen showing something inappropriate. Those are just some of many geeky pranks to be played on the unsuspecting. Plenty more can be found in these Top Geeky Prank Sites to Fool Your Friends.
So, prepare to be amused, but prepare to read a little as many pranks require a little knowledge setting up. These Top Geeky Prank Sites to Fool Your Friends, may require some stealth and skill comparable to someone playing with another’s Windows configuration file or registry to replace the wallpaper with something funny; or maybe they won’t, like these top sites.
Unlike the examples mentioned earlier, the pranks in PRANX are not as elaborate. All that’s required is for the victim to be distracted or better yet away from his/her station while it’s unlocked. Despite all advisories and measures posted by companies, employees place a high level of trust in their colleagues. That is until they fall victim to the pranks in this site and the rest.
And so, all the prankster has to do is wait for the station to be unattended, go to the PRANX website, click on any of the site’s animations, press F11 to set the browser to full screen and watch the sparks fly from the sidelines. To get out of the prank, simply press F11 again to show that everything is just a browser app. The other pranks are more elaborate and interactive such as a fake website and a fake BIOS screen.
On the side, PRANX itself will prank the prankster if he/she takes too long to decide on a prank by sending bugs (animated insects) to the screen that can be swatted by the mouse cursor. Something to be amused by while scheming against someone though one needs to turn off the sound, as PRANX will make unsavory sounds as well.
2) Hacker Typer
Being a hacker is frowned upon in many corporate setups, mostly by superiors, though colleagues will stare in awe of the confused victim’s talents. To get the most out of this prank, it’s essential to time the joke when the victim returns to the station with many others. Hacker Typer is quite clever and amusing. It simulates what’s mostly displayed on TV and film. A black screen with random green or amber text that looks like code.
Like in PRANX, all the prankster has to do is navigate to the website, press F11 and watch as the surprised and confused user types and mouses over the screen, forming ‘structured’ but nonsensical code all the while worried that he/she could be accused of hacking. Only the F11 or the computer’s reset or power key will get the victim out of the prank. The prankster can also change the ‘typing speed’ and color of the text.
And lastly we have Geek Prank. It’s a collection of browser prank animations similar to PRANX and even shares some animations with the latter. But what it is mostly is that tricks casual users to think that their operating system has been changed to Windows XP. The prankster can simply wait for the computer to be unattended, go to the site and press F11 to go full screen. The prankster can also choose from any of the other pranks immediately presented or leave the victim to his/her devices and try to figure things out. Most of the actions the victim takes will result in a blue screen of death, a BIOS screen, a reset screen or even a DOS screen. To get out of the prank, simply press F11 or Alt-Tab.
So, there you have it. There are other prank sites out there but these Top Geeky Prank Sites to Fool Your Friends should get you started earning the laughter or the ire of your friends. But you’ll be laughing on the inside anyway.
