Funny Pranks 101

Have you ever tried to pull a well-planned funny prank to get your day started off right? If not, this is your opportunity! Pranks are little jokes that we play on the people we know and love. If you do them right, they could make both of you laugh until milk is shooting out of your noses.

The key to successful funny pranks is to ruffle your victim’s feathers without making them too angry or frightened. There’s a fine line between the two! Here are some tips and suggestions to ensure that your funny pranks go off without a hitch.

1) Write a zany note.
Notes can be great for pranks on people you don’t know too well. They are relatively unobtrusive, and also won’t get under your victim’s skin too much. If someone finds a humorous note in a place they don’t expect, it will just brighten their day and give them a good laugh. A tradition I’ve started with my husband is to attack him with an "Ant Brigade" note, which I leave in several odd places around our home. He never knows where the Ant Brigade is going to show up to pester him - the pantry, the couch, even the shower!

2) Make your victim the center of attention.
This well-known funny prank is best reserved for friends you know well.It’s also good for family members that will love you no matter what you do to them. When you’re in a crowded department store, you just turn to your victim and exclaim "Who ARE you? And WHY do you keep following me?" Other popular variations include "NO, I will NOT hold your hand" and "I know you miss your mommy, but we’ll be home soon!" Comments of this nature will get your victim quite a few strange looks. This can be hilarious, especially if your friend has a good sense of humor.

3) Set up a booby trap.
The booby trap prank is a classic! You set an object up to fall as soon as your victim walks into or out of a place. A wonderful example is setting up ice cube trays at an incline, in order to stage an ice cream avalanche from the freezer. You could also rig a mannequin to fall out of a closet when it’s opened. As you can see, you can get quite creative with this one, especially around Halloween. That’s when there are a number of plastic spiders and skeletons for sale at local stores.

4) Watch your back.
After you pull a funny prank on someone, you should beware of one thing: payback. If your prank is particularly good, you are definitely going to warrant a revenge attack. So my advice is to be prepared! And don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, And Slumdog Millionaire

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is the story of a man who is born old and slowly digresses in age until he dies as an infant. Brad Pitt plays the main character, and he embarks on an oddball romance with Cate Blanchett, who plays Daisy. They meet as children, but their lives never seem to totally match until they reach their 40s at the same time. I liked the acting in the film a lot; Pitt and Blanchett do a great job of making this unreal situation seem believable. Critics agree that the performances are outstanding, and they have called it an epic fantasy. The film felt too long, though. Once you know the secret of Benjamin Button, and you realize that Daisy is his true love, the wait to see the story come to its conclusion seemed to take forever. With a run time of two hours and forty-six minutes, I felt like many of the longer montages in the movie could have been cut without sacrificing any of the story. Overall, it was a good film that just felt a little long.

Frost/Nixon is a behind the scenes look at the preparation for and the taping of the David Frost and Richard Nixon interviews. Originally it was a Broadway play. Many in Hollywood have said that this film is the best of director Ron Howard's career, even better than his Oscar winning film, A Beautiful Mind, and I would agree. At first glance, the plot doesn't sound like it would make an interesting film, yet Howard takes the wrangling and manipulation on both sides of the famous interview and turns it into a tight, tense thriller. The acting by Frank Langella and Michael Sheen, both of whom played the roles on Broadway, is some of the best of the year, and their clashes onscreen give Frost/Nixon the dramatic edge that makes it a great historic film.

Critics have rallied behind Slumdog Millionaire, a film by Danny Boyle that was filmed in the streets of Mumbai, India, as the best film of the year. It is the story of a young man, Jamal, who grew up on the streets and, against all odds, makes it to the final round of the Indian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Accused of cheating, he is tortured and grilled about how he knew the answers, and as he tells the story of his life, we see how his life experience as a child of the streets gave him the answers. The film keeps you guessing about whether Jamal will make it through the final round and reunite with the love of his life, Latika. Slumdog Millionaire is one of the most hopeful films I've seen in many years. The adversities that Jamal faces are beyond the comprehension of most North Americans, but to watch someone who is unsure where his next meal will come from remain optimistic about the future is a great lesson. The sharp editing and clever script keep the story moving, and when I saw the film, the audience cheered and applauded at the end of the film. If you're unfamiliar with the rich culture of Bollywood, Slumdog is a wonderful introduction to that style.

Best things in Life are Free!

Gauge the movie if it is worth watching in the big screen

Funny how some of the films you have watched are simply not worth the penny you are paying. This is especially true if you are only looking at the stars but not the film itself.

Forgotten Lands: First Colony (Review)

Forgotten Lands: First Colony gives you the power to build structures, create units, and harvest materials you'll need to do both. To recruit workers, simply click on the town hall and choose which citizen you'll need. Some of the starting units available include general laborers, merchants, scholars and scouts, each with his or her own unique abilities. Drag and drop your units onto buildings to set them to work. Scholars, for example, love to research and when they're placed around a building it will quickly earn points that will allow an upgrade. Learning how to use the units effectively is one of the key factors in mastering Forgotten Lands: First Colony.

Food, gold and wood are the only resources you need concern yourself with in the game. Build farms and place workers there to make sure your population is fed. Create a lumber mill to harvest timber, and try distributing merchants across your buildings to increase gold production. In order to create new buildings and upgrade them, you'll need plenty of gold and wood.

Divided into a series of scenarios, Forgotten Lands gradually develops the story as you complete increasingly open-ended missions. You start with simple tasks such as building a farm, recruiting a number of units, or upgrading a building. Later you get to do much more interesting things such as trade gems for new property and repair an ancient seafaring vessel that's crashed on the shore. Bonus stages are unlocked at certain points, providing you with a little break from the main game.

The visuals, while perfectly suited to the game's atmosphere, sometimes come across as a bit grainy with slightly stiff animation. It's nothing that detracts from the game.

It's rare to see real time strategy make its way to the casual scene in such a perfect way. Forgotten Lands: First Colony delivers everything that's great about the genre without sacrificing very much at all. And you won't have to sacrifice hours of your life just learning how to play.

Key Game Features:

* Upgrade buildings?,
* Train many different settlers,
* Cute characters and art.
