    What is Positive Pranking?

    Idea from Amy Krause Rosenthal, which Hank and John did in 2010 @ChocolateThunder

    Definitely want to bring it back!!!!
    My best idea for one so far is leaving chocolate in people's letterboxes (in winter cause in Australia's summer it would melt in a heartbeat)

    It would be amazing for this to start back up! @AussieChic2000 I like the chocolate idea, but that's definitely a winter idea here in Massachusetts too. I'm also thinking that'd be a good thing to do in my workplace mailboxes. I know people here can get down because it's a pretty stressful environment. Does anyone have any other ideas for good workplace positive pranking?
    "Mankind's moral sense is not a strong beacon light, radiating outward to illuminate in sharp outline all that it touches. It is, rather, a small candle flame, casting vague and multiple shadows, flickering and sputtering in the strong winds of power and passion, greed and ideology. But brought close to the heart and cupped in one's hands, it dispels the darkness and warms the soul."

    @savindafishies That's a wonderful idea to do at work! Now I kinda wish we had mailboxes at my work too...
    Other things that one could do is to leave little notes with positive messages, a bit like Hank's prank-calling. And a thing that I do on the Christmases that I've worked is to decorate the control room screens (both PC:s, control computers and CCTV screens) with red bowties made from any red rags that I can find in the rag bin in the workshop. Being a heavily male-gendered workplace, I think it can count as a prank although most people like it or don't even notice it. I've stolen this idea from a friend who work at sea too.
