This is a question Pointless Experiments

Pavlov's Frog writes: I once spent 20 minutes with my eyes closed to see what it was like being blind. I smashed my knee on the kitchen cupboard, and decided I'd be better off deaf as you can still watch television.

Another classroom experiment
All the TVs in the school were the same brand - Ferguson or something. One kiddy had a spare remote at home and kept it at school for those edifying occasions where the teacher would plonk us in front of some educationalist programme.
The rules were:
1. A different perpetrator had the remote each time, to be stuffed up inside the tie
2. Continuous alteration of the picture/sound in some way must occur from the start of the programme.
3. Game only finishes when you are caught or teacher becomes so exasperated the set goes off.

After a while they all got wise to it, but you'd think they'd tell the supply teachers as well wouldn't you?
Does that mean the permanent teachers like to fuck about the supply teachers as well?

We did the same at my school...
...but with one of those remote control watches. We only did it in RE with the crazy teachers, not on the days when we got to watch fun videos...

Ahhhh.... Videos....
*Goes all nostalgic*

Don't worry
It only happened with the really shit TV programmes - the ones where you'd rather be staring at the floor, kicking the leg of the chair in front of you, only to get shouted at: "Oi, Morelli, stop fidgeting and watch the programme - you're ruining it for all the others who are trying to concentrate" and similar hogwash.

I had a Saturday job with a TV repair place when I was at school
Remarkable the number of sets that came in from the school with "Loses colour after 5 minutes" or "Volume control intermittently full" or similar. All returned after soak test with "No Fault Found"...

Maradona Moment
Ooops, we did this with the local British Legion club during the 1986 world cup.

We crept round the back and pointed at their TV through the window. We kept turning the sound up, turning the channel - luckily we saw the "hand-of god moment" and so did everyone else in there, so we were'nt complete bar stewards.

The old blokes had the remote taken off them after that game ;-)
