Scary Pranks including scary computer pranks and scary online pranks

I started experimenting with scary pranks first before I attempted other pranks. It can be one of the simplest to pull off that even little kids can do it on other little kids. As I grew up, I found out that playing these pranks on adults were just as simple, provided you know the mechanics of scare pranking. For those more resistant to scares, you'll need to take some trouble to identify their fears. Here, you'll get some prank ideas to invoke horror and terror in your victims.

Just so you know, terror is an immediate sense of personal danger, while horror is what you feel after seeing something fearful. We'll work from those angles on your victim.

There are a few steps that are common to most scare pranks. First is to put your victim into a 'safe' state where things around them appear to be normal and not suspicious. Next is to spring the object of your victim's fear, with accompanying sounds, if applicable. Finally comes the laughter and placating, the step to tell them that everything is okay and that it was just a prank.

Is there anyone you shouldn't play a scary prank on? Certainly. Don't play it on people who have known heart problems. Arguably, you shouldn't play these pranks on people who have martial arts training, a weapon or a gun as people have known to react to fear with violence, as shown in the video. However, you can modify some of these prank ideas to make sure the object of their fear does not involve a living creature.

That being said, on with the pranks ideas!
