And even MORE...
Engage someone in a conversation, and have a friend sneak up behind them, and get down on his hands and knees. Then, all of a sudden, violently push the person to whom you are talking, and laugh with sadistic glee as they tumble backwards over the person kneeling behind them.

Give somebody a grundy.
Pinch a guy's nipple. You may also pinch a girl's nipple if you please, but this falls under '101 Ways to Sexually Harass People.'
Leave the following message on someone's answering machine: "Sir, we're not sure if you wanted us to do it, you know, after what happened, so, well, we went ahead and did it anyway.

Take a wire, and stick it all the way through a cigar or cigarette. Let the ash get really long, and pretend you don't notice everybody staring at it, waiting for it to fall.

Call a house at random, and ask for Gary. When they tell you that there's no Gary there, call again a little while later. Do this at intervals about four times. Finally, when they're fuming and about to scream bloody murder, call a fifth time, and say, "Hi, this is Gary. Are there any messages for me?"
Take a deck of cards, and say, "Okay, I'm gonna do a magic trick." Ask the person to pick any card, and put it anywhere in the deck. After they have shuffled the deck thoroughly, take the deck back. Ask, "What was your card?" When they tell you, say, "Not only has your card magically come to the top of the deck, but it has also magically turned into..." Pick up the top card, look at it, and name it.
When somebody is talking very excitedly at a restaurant, pick up their plate, hand it to them, and nod gravely. Wait for them to notice and wonder why they are holding their plate.
Exclaim in a crowded theater, "No, I won't touch you there for a dollar! No, not two dollars, either!"
Approach somebody quietly from behind, grab them, and scream, "Booga booga!" or any other such exclamation loudly. This works extremely well on high strung people.
Be chronically late. Not really late, but always be about five or seven minutes late. This really gets anal retentive people. I know.
Shave with someone elses razor. For some reason, a lot of people are really touchy about that. Once again, I know.
Once again at a restaurant, one with a candle in the middle of the table, while someone is up before the food has come, take their plate, hold the bottom rim over the candle, and rotate it so you get a lot of soot on the bottom of the plate. When they come back, say, "I'm going to hypnotize you. Pick up your plate in your left hand, and with your right hand, copy all my actions." Proceed to rub your index finger around the bottom rim of your plate, and in a circle on your forehead. Then around the rim, and each of your eyes.

Take an envelope, fill it with baking powder or flour,and send it to somebody.
At a fast food restaurant, push down the bubbles on the drink tops of everybody's drink.
Crack all your knuckles. A lot of people can't stand fingers, and I know some people who have almost fainted upon the cracking of the neck.
Sing, "I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves..." over and over again to the tune of the first two lines of The Battle Hymn of the Republic.

When you're out of the house all night for a weekend, leave your clock-radio on for it's normal wake-up time of about 6:30 or 7:30, and turn the volume up.
At a red light, put your car in gear and creep slowly forward, while gesturing to the person in the car next to you that they must be rolling backwards.
Drive with your brights on just to see how many people flash their lights at you.
Tailgating can be one of the most effective forms of annoyance know to man. (Just to let you know, if you do that to me, I've been known to slow down to 5-10 MPH on 40+ MPH roads or slam on my brakes in 25MPH or less zones)
Walk up to someone you know, and say something to the effect of, "Hey, did you hear what happened to Jim? Well he was with...oh, man, I really shouldn't tell you this. No, I promised I wouldn't tell. No, I can't tell you, sorry."

Take off the letters one of those sign boards that have the removable letters. Spell rude things with them.
Answer the phone "Domino's Pizza, how can I help you?" at someone else's house. Or at your own house, if you really want.
At night, rearrange somebody's furniture. At the very least, they'll be surprised when they get up in the morning. But, better yet, call them in the middle of the night, so they have to get up, and stumble over a chair that wasn't there before.
Many telephone answering machines have two digit passwords for retrieving messages and that kind of thing, and often times, the default on many models is 25, which people don't bother to change. This is an excellent way to hack answering machines, or, if this doesn't work, it's not that hard to try all 100 combinations. Regardless, once you've hacked the machine, a fun thing to do is to change the message. This is supremely annoying.
Call a credit card company and report somebody's card as missing. Next time they try to use it, they'll have it confiscated and cut into little bitty pieces.
Take all the labels off of their video tapes.
There are a myriad of non-harmful but incredibly annoying computer viruses, such as Red-X, Cascade, Heeva Havah, Whale, and more. Their effects vary, and they can be a pain in the butt to remove from one's hard drive.
An old but still great and incredibly useful annoyance technique is the age old, tried and true 'Kick Me' sign on the back. A classic.
Write taunting messages at random places in an assignment notebook or executive planner.
Another classic is to get about three other people in on a joke that has no meaning at all, and tell it with those three people and the victim in the room. All the people 'in' on the joke laugh, and the victim doesn't get it. When he asks, say, "Oh, never mind. If you don't get it, it's not worth explaining. My favorite is, "A hippo and a penguin are taking a bath together. The hippo says, 'Pass the soap,' and the penguin says, 'No soap. Radio!'"
Yet another age old family of annoying jokes are as follows: "Would you happen to have a henway on you?" "A henway? What's a henway?" "About three pounds."
Talk to the characters in a television show, like yelling out loud, "Don't go in there! The bad guys are in there!"
When you take a shower, leave the shower/bath valve on shower.
Women hate it when men leave the toilet seat up.
During an exam, tap your foot on the floor continuously. This works very well on linoleum, especially if you can find a part of the floor where the linoleum is coming loose, and it makes a very loud sound.
Be a street mime.
Remove the doorstop from hallway doors. Or better yet, if you have the time and the motivation, take out the screw that holds the two 'arms' of the spring closer together.
Write poetry for a school newspaper or publication.
For women: ask your friends, "Do I look fat to you?"
Put a lubricated condom on somebody's door knob.
Go out behind somebody's house at night, and find the box marked "Illinois Bell Customer Service," or whatever state you live in. Open this up using a flat head screwdriver, and attach a wire across the green and red wires. This will leave the phone off hook, and once the too-long-off-hook signal starts going, the person will be forced to go to another's house to use the phone to call Ma Bell so they can figure out is going on.
Put a dead fish in somebody's trunk. Works best during the summer.
Take a chalkboard eraser and insert a piece of chalk into, so that when somebody goes to erase the board, they leave a chalk mark.
At a restaurant, have the victim place both his hands on the table palms down. Balance a glass of water on the back of each hand. The person is now trapped, unable to remove either glass without help. (Actually, there is a solution: place your chin against one glass, and using that to hold it steady, remove the other glass.)
A similar 'trap' is to have a person stick their forefinger and thumb through the space on the hinged side of an open door, just above the top hinge. Put an egg between their fingers and ask them to hold it. Then, take their hat and put it on the floor underneath the egg.
Take a paper or styrofoam cup, and punch a small hole in it near the base. Grasp the cup, with your thumb over the hole, and fill it with water. Now, casually walk up to someone, and ask them to hold the cup.
Take a bungee cord like the kind used to tie a car hood down, and while someone is sitting in a chair in front of you, carefully and quietly hook one end to their belt loop, and the other to the chair leg or underside. If they are sitting on a plastic chair, the chair will spring up when they stand up, and fall over, making a loud clatter. Better yet, though, if they're sitting near a wall fixture, just attach them to that.
Shake up somebody's can of soda before they drink it.
Loosen the tops on the salt and pepper shakers at a restaurant.
Take a cheap ball point pen, and bend it sharply to break open the ink well, or open the pen up and cut the ink well open. Lend this pen to somebody.
