Scientific Karma
I've always been into electronics and, back when I was at college, decided it would be a good idea to play a little trick on one of my teachers.

The premise simple, wire a light sensitive resistor across a the mains, cover with curtain, switch on and wait. Needless to say the teacher nearly wet himself when he pulled back the curtains and was greeted by a loud bang much to the amusement the classfull of students.

Now we come to the Karma part. Many years later I'm working as a teacher and, just as I walk into a classroom with my head of department, the projector bulb decides to explode just above my head.

They've never let me forget the girly scream I gave as I leapt into the air. In a way, I suppose it is sort of karmic justice.
