  • A true story; happened right here, not apocryphal.
    In my college dorm, we play ‘Assassin,’ like lots of students. Unlike mostpeople though, we use Silly String(tm) instead of water pistols, so that if youhit your target there’s never an argument about whether you really hit thembecause, well, they’re covered with Silly String(tm). But for those two weeks, you carry your Silly String(tm) everywhere, eveninto classrooms where you’re automatically safe.
    So there I was in thisPsychology class with my friend, and we were kind of holding our Silly String atthe ready while the professor lectured.
    The class was Psychology Of Group Behavior and the professor was describingour next assignment, which concerned group norms. (Group norms are the unspokenrules of a group, i.e. you don’t grab someone else’s dining-hall tray and starteating off it). She was telling us the project, which is to violate a groupnorm blatantly and intentionally and then write a little two-page paper aboutit.
    And my crazy friend gets up, walks down the aisle, and gets up on the stagewith the professor, and proceeds to cover her in Silly String(tm). Needless tosay everyone figured out what was going on, and the applause brought down thehouse.
    He only got a B-plus on the paper, though. Go figure.
