Step 1: Find a new user who doesn't look like a possible spammer (avatar, some forum posts or wiki points, etc.)

Step 2: Hold F5 on their profile page for about a minute, check to see if they get the quest

Step 3: Write "Congratulations, you've won!" on their wall

Step 4: Question your usage of time

Is this even funny? I dunno guys, I was really bored.

Prank? Yeah, that sounds more like a waste of time.

That still makes me think of those times where Alex tells a joke and absolutely nobody is laughing at it and he forces a laugh out of himself to make the joke look super funny. Does that make me a bad person?

Don't ask me why it reminds me of that, it just does

Wow, do you always call the people you prank "scumbag" afterwards? Do you have any friends left?

So far Alex is the only person I've seen doing that so it's news to me. "Telling a joke, akward silence, burst into fake laughter because nobody else is laughing at your terrible joke... nope, nobody laugh yet, keep trying though".. seems strange to me

It's called a defense mechanism, and yeah lots of people do that.

Oh, wait, so what you're trying to tell me is that apparantly "a "lot" of human beings do that" ? It all makes sense! Strange, seems like I already knew that. Ever get that feeling, that someone already told you something and then some other random internet guy comes around and tells you exactly the same thing? :P... To make it clear just so you get it too, I've still only seen Alex do it no matter how many people you are trying to make me believe are making terrible jokes and laughing at them constantly while nobody else is, Alex is still the only person I have seen who does it.... Now leave me alone while I wait for the next guy to come around and tell me exactly the same thing you and that other guy just said :P

Edit: Nobody laughed? ok hold on. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'M SO FUNNY! ROFL LOLOL!

#27 Posted by Knetic2341 (243 posts) -

@Getz: I have lost many a friend doing so, yes.

In reality, I don't think I have called someone a scumbag, just sounds like a pretty awful thing to say. Except Scumbag Steve. What a jerk.

#28 Posted by rbysjti (354 posts) -

does it really work?

#29 Posted by Gamer_152 (14058 posts) -

I don't think I really "get it", it doesn't seem like a prank to me. Also, this thread needs less Alex-bashing.
