    I merely ask because in an ongoing series of pranks, I got locked out of my room. To which I replied, the longer you leave me in the corridor, the longer I have free access to people's food in the fridge. All in jest obviously. However I was given a dark look and told that you can't mess with food. But my question is, is messing with people's food (obviously in a non lethal/serious way) going too far?










    On a completely unrelated note, what is the chance that putting some lemon juice on a burger will render it inedible? I figured it would make little to no difference

    As long as you don't poison someone with a toxic substance, I don't see why it's not fair game in student pranks.

    I'm not talking about stealing food, I'm talking about moving it around in the fridge/freezer to mess about with someone's head really :o:

    We haven't had people messing with our food, but we've all had things stolen. My mate had a load of alcohol that he had in the fridge taken this weekend

    Alcohol is the only thing that gets stolen. Tell your friend to either buy it on the night or store it in his room.

    if locking you out of your room isnt a step too far then neither is messing with peoples food, if you can give it you can take it IMO

    obviously as long as you arnt going round sticking poison in peoples burgers or owt thats gonna render them in hospital or a coffin

    Chances are they'll have cummed in your food by now, just because you mentioned it.

    Should never give people ideas like that.

    Damaging/poisoning food is a complete no no, but moving it around/hiding it in other cupboards is allowed.

    Personally I hate ANYONE touching my food, and would consider it a step too far if people touched my food. However, knowing this, I would not provoke other people until they felt a need to mess with my food.

    Should have just done it and not said anything.

    Like someone said above; fair game.

    Interesting range of opinions.

    Well they didn't react/open the door when I said it first, when they finally let me in I mentioned something casual to get them paranoid
    But it was only some lemon juice on (one) burger so I doubt they'd notice. And I took the baked beans out of the freezer and put them back in the fridge because I felt guilty*...

    I agree with this.



    It is also not acceptable (however funny you might find it) to replace vegetarian food stuffs to that of the non-vegetarian kind

    My first set of housemates used to wake me up every night, have parties in the kitchen, and generally be absolutely bloody horrible.

    On the nights that they pissed me off, I used to have toast with Marmite, using only their stuff - and because they were very, very well off, they always had the best stuff so it tasted even better, especially with the added revenge ^_^

    Me and one of my old house mates got into a prank war.....at first it was just him leaving my Pc homepage to very very disturbing websites as i never bothered to lock my door while i was down in the living room.

    It moved on to him stealing my entire Computer along with everything on my desk and replacing it with an identical replica he had made and painted out of cereal boxes, lava lamp, Keyboard and mouse all included

    Also he filled my freezer draw with all my food in with my cutlery, plated etc then filled it with water and left overnight for me to find a lovely block of my stuff in the morning ><

    However I went into his room, filled his computer with gay man porn and changed many of his Desktop Icon short-cuts to turn off his computer and also bought several bags of microwaveable popcorn to which i filled his entire cupboard, fridge, freezer, teapot, pots, pans and cereal boxes with

    Sure, move it.

    However, the corolary to that is that anything you move is liable to be thrown at you with great force. Or well....to me

    I'd be careful with moving cans...
