This is a question Petty Sabotage

I once put magnets on my brothers collection of ZX81 cassettes, so when he attempted to play them, they were full of errors and yet apparently undamaged. Can you beat that? Tell us your tales of petty sabotage.

White Teacher
Many years ago in college doing a GVNQ in IT, we had a hardware class and were given some old PCs to take apart, look at the components and put them back together. A highly insulting task for a bunch of geeks.
So to the sabotage... we fiddled with the power supply and happily handed the PC back to the teacher to reconnect to make sure we had put it back together correctly.
Well the teacher didnt entirely trust us so the PC was pluged in and placed on the floor so he could hit the power switch with his foot. It quite amusing to watch a teacher nervously sticking out his leg to try and kick the power switch. When he eventually got it there was a nice big bang and a blue flash shooting out the back of the PC.
The teacher went white as a sheet, and was not amused... oh how we laughed!

Sorry for crapness, please forward coat to my home address.
