The Leap: 10 April Fool’s pranks to try this year

first_imgFacebook Twitter Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ printApril Fool’s Day is nearly here and that means it’s time to step up your prank game.There are hundreds of options from a classic whoopee cushion trick to completely covering a car with duct tape. To help you settle on the perfect prank, The Leap staff has compiled our top April Fool’s Day gags ranging from harmless to monstrous.The Balloon RoomLet’s start with a fun, simple one for those of you who want to do a prank that won’t cause any harm to your fellow frogs. If the title didn’t give it away, I’ll break this one down for you: blow up as many balloons as you can to fill your friend’s room while they’re away from home. When they come back they’ll be greeted by a wave of minor inconveniences.Difficulty: 3/10Savagery: 1/10via GIPHY2. The Jim HalpertHow could this not make this list? If you’re a fan of “The Office,” this one’s calling your name. All you have to do is fill a large bowl halfway with Jell-O, let it cool and drop in whatever item you’ve chosen to “borrow” from your friend before you add the rest of your Jell-O supply. Hide it somewhere for your friend to find and wait for their reaction. If they don’t get why it’s brilliant, refer them to Netflix. Jim would be proud of you.Difficulty: 3/10Savagery: 2/10via GIPHY3. The Minty OreosEveryone loves Oreos, right? You can count on it to pull this one off. Offer your dear friend a delicious, totally normal Oreo to celebrate Easter Sunday and your trusting relationship — BUT WAIT! IT’S NOT TOTALLY NORMAL! Beforehand, scrape the frosting off of the cookie and spread some appetizing toothpaste in the center for a dentist-approved nightmare cookie. It’s like the store brand ones, but slightly better.Difficulty: 1/10Savagery: 3/10via GIPHY4. The Arctic BlastPaint with all the colors of the wind, specifically white. Pour flour or powder sugar into your friend’s hairdryer. I think you know exactly what’s going to happen next. Maybe don’t do this one to your roommate unless you want a snow day in your own room.Difficulty: 2/10Savagery: 4/10via GIPHY5. The Ballpark RefreshmentThere’s a chance your target won’t mind the minty flavor, but that’s not much of a risk for this one. Boil some hot dogs in a pot and freeze the flavored water in an ice cube tray. When your friend comes over, offer them a tall drink chilled with these ice cubes. Their drink will gradually taste more and more like America’s favorite pastime as the cubes melt. Yum!Difficulty: 3/10Savagery: 4/10via GIPHY6. The Jump ScareThere are few joys in life greater than scaring your friends for no reason at all. One of the best and most classic ways to pull this off is with April Fool’s best friend: the air horn. Now, to pull this off you’re going to have to get a little crafty. You’ll need an air horn, details of your prey’s whereabouts throughout the day, two lassos, a five-ounce dove, a convincing disguise and a sack of flour. On second thought, you really don’t need a complicated plan for this one. Just wait until your friend falls asleep and blast them! It’ll be hilarious.Difficulty: 2/10Savagery: 5/10via GIPHY7. The Sticky BandanaIf you want to step up the savagery, all you need is a thick roll of tape. After you’ve picked your target, take note of their height and stick a strip of mover’s tape at eye level in a doorway they’re bound to pass through. Then, herd them into that entryway with a scare that will get them running. If your tape holds and they don’t spot it soon enough, they’ll get caught in your trap!Difficulty: 2/10Savagery: 7/10via GIPHY8. The Organic Chocolate EggApril Fool’s Day and Easter Sunday fall on the same day this year, so it’s only fitting to unite the two with this prank. This one’s simple, yet devastating. Take an egg and coat it with chocolate with a fondue fountain (I’m sure you have one just lying around) and wrap it in colorful foil to make it look like a common Easter egg treat. Hide it in a basket of similarly sized goodies and wait for your unsuspecting prey to take a bite.Difficulty: 5/10Savagery: 8/10via GIPHY9. The OutdoorsmenDoes your friend love to keep himself/herself smelling fresh and clean to start the day? Not on April Fool’s Day. Get yourself a bottle of natural skunk scent or something equally foul and potent. Pour a significant amount into their cologne/perfume bottle and watch as their daily routine takes a nauseating turn. To prank someone who isn’t your roommate, soak a sock in the April Fool’s elixir and hide it in their laundry bin. The smell will permeate the room, but they won’t know where it’s coming from.Difficulty: 5/10Savagery: 9/10via GIPHY10. The Japanese CupcakeCupcakes are a popular dessert with a sugary sweet taste. This version, not so much. Make a special cupcake for your friend topped with green icing that will hide a spicy surprise: wasabi. Pile a big dollop of wasabi in the middle of the cupcake’s surface and coat it with green frosting to hide it. It will taste like a normal cupcake until a fateful bite finds a mouthful of the fiery condiment.Difficulty: 3/10Savagery: 10/10via GIPHYThat should give you plenty of options and time to prepare for Sunday’s festivities. All that’s left to do now is pick a target and wait for the perfect opportunity to strike.Good luck!via GIPHY Twitter Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ + posts ‘The Big Switch:’ Student spends a day in the chancellor’s shoes ReddIt Linkedin Previous articleDocumentary tells story of area with highest percentage of incarcerated black malesNext articleEquestrian takes second in Big 12 Championship Shane Battis RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Shane Battis center_img Facebook Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ The LEAP 10/22/20 Linkedin Lead On committee co-chairs share goals with students ReddIt Here’s our top pranks for this year.

Required fields are marked * Business News Government Rep. Chu Votes to Approve Iran Nuclear Deal Published on Friday, September 11, 2015 | 11:39 am Today, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) voted to approve the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action negotiated between the U.S., Germany, Britain, France, Russia, and China and Iran to lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs to their nuclear program. Before the vote, Rep. Chu spoke on the floor in support of the agreement. Her remarks are below:“I rise today to support the Iran deal, the most important step that we could take to secure the future of this planet by stopping Iran’s nuclear program for 15 years.“A nuclear Iran is an unacceptable danger. Iran’s support of terror and aggression throughout the world, it’s stated threats to Israel, and the nuclear arms race they would trigger are the reasons the world’s major powers came together to put crushing sanctions on Iran in the first place.“Currently, Iran can produce enough material for a nuclear weapon in 2-3 months. Under this deal, Iran must take several unprecedented steps that would prevent them from having a nuclear weapon for 15 years. This deal goes further than any agreement in history by including inspections of Iran’s entire uranium enrichment supply chain for up to 25 years. Additionally, Iran will be subject to inspections under the Additional Protocol forever.“It is those crushing economic sanctions that brought Iran to the table to finally accept the nuclear deal. What is critical to remember is that our terrorism sanctions still remain in place and, if a military strike is necessary, the U.S. will have the time and intelligence to intervene, but without the threat of a nuclear bomb for 15 years. In contrast, without this deal, sanctions will be lifted anyway, and we will be left with nothing but fear, uncertainty, and an unfettered Iran.“Considering the anxiety of recent years, when the prospect of a military strike on Iran felt imminent, this deal is a welcome alternative. And, the risks of rejecting it are too great. For the sake of our security, the security of our allies and our position as a trustworthy global leader, I urge my colleagues to support the deal.”last_img read more

Cricket News Tri-Series Final Abandoned Due To Rain, But Bangladesh Still Create History Vs Afghanistan

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The tri-series Twenty20 final between Afghanistan and Bangladesh had the potential to become a good contest. Bangladesh had built up momentum by winning three consecutive games on the trot while Afghanistan suffered two back-to-back losses, including their first loss to Zimbabwe. However, the final in Mirpur proved to be a damp squib with rain forcing the match to be abandoned without a toss. Consistent rain at Mirpur meant the covers were firmly in place and the groundstaff could not conduct the clean-up operations. The decision to abandon the match was taken by the umpires at 9:00 PM local time and both teams ended up sharing the trophy.Since there was no reserve day for the final, both Afghanistan and Bangladesh ended up sharing the trophy. However, Bangladesh still managed to create a slice of history. This was the first time that Bangladesh had secured a Twenty20 trophy which involved more than two teams. In the 2018 Nidahas Trophy tri-series which involved Sri Lanka and India, Bangladesh had reached the final and they were almost close to sealing the trophy but Dinesh Karthik’s last-ball six off Soumya Sarkar gave India an unlikely win and broke Bangladesh’s heart.Also Read | 12 And Counting! Afghanistan Create New Twenty20 World Record After Win Over BangladeshSpeaking after the end of the game, both Bangladesh and Afghanistan skippers expressed their bittersweet feelings. “We targeted the Test game, we are famous in T20’s but the target of board is to do well in Test matches. So, the Test match victory was very pleasing. We are leaving tonight from Bangladesh,” Rashid Khan said. Shakib added, “We didn’t play our best cricket in this tournament but leading upto the final, we played some good cricket. I will get some match time before the India series,” Shakib said. Also Read | India Beat Bangladesh In Under-19 Asia Cup Final Thriller, Here Are Other Instances Of PainThis was the first abandoned Twenty20 game in Bangladesh while it was the 29th overall in this format. The first abandoned game was between England and South Africa in 2008 at Chester-le-Street, Durham. The first abandoned game in the sub-continent was the India vs New Zealand encounter at Vizag in 2012 where persistent rain forced the match to be abandoned without a toss in what could have been Yuvraj Singh’s comeback after battling cancer. The Hong Kong Cricket Team have the most number of abandoned games in this format with seven while among the Test-playing nations, South Africa have seen six of their games abandoned including two against India in Kolkata 2015 and Dharamshala 2019.Bangladesh’s next major assignment will be a full tour to India for two Tests and three Twenty20 Internationals. The series begins on November 3 at the Arun Jaitley stadium in New Delhi and it will end with the second Test at Eden Gardens. The two Tests will be part of the World Test Championship. last_img read more

Chukwueze Salutes Messi for ‘Best Young Player’ Award Nomination

first_imgFemi Solaja with agency reportWith the dusts raised after the last Ballon D’Or awards yet to finally settled down, Super Eagles forward, Samuel Chukwueze has thanked the winner of the prized award and FC Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, of for voting him among his top three U21 players in the world.The AFCON 2019 bronze winner with Super Eagles at the Egypt soccer fiesta is still in cloud nine despite the fact that Dutch defender, Matthijs de Ligt of Juventus eventually won the category ahead of other final 10 nominees which excluded the Nigerian star.The Argentina captain, Messi, had voted for the trio of Jaoa Felix, Jadon Sancho and Chukwueze as his top three players under the age of 21 with the Villarreal forward the only African player in Messi’s list for the award which was won by the defender who switched over from FC Ajax to Serie A last summer instead of much anticipated move to Barcelona. Chukwueze who is also in the run for CAF Young Player of the year award in January in an interview with www.owngoal.com said getting recognised from a player of Messi’s status is a testimony to how his game has improved the past few months and he is motivated to do more.” For one to get an endorsement from a player of Messi’s status says a lot. I found it hard to believe when I was told because I never believed he will pick me in his top three players.” The vote is a motivation for me to work hard and continue to improve on certain areas of my game.” I am still learning in several areas of my game and hopefully I will improve and become a better player in the nearest future. Maybe to the level of Lionel Messi because there’s nothing prayers laced with hardwork can’t do. I learnt that from my mother,” said the Villarreal forward who has scored two goal for the Yelow Submarines this season and 12 goals in 57 appearance for the Laliga side since he joined the club two seasons ago.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
