Anyone else think it's funny to scare or watch people getting scared?

    My "wife" and I always butted heads on this. I would sneak into a closet and jump out at her, or put on a Scream mask and be standing in the middle of a dark room when she turned the light on.

    One Halloween I dressed up as a stuffed scarecrow and sat at a table with a bowl of candy next to me. When kids would walk up I would jump and scare them.

    She used to get so pissed at me and thought it was childish and immature. I think it's funny.

    Anyone else?

    I don't know. I've always kind of thought that there's some kind of latent hostility or anger or passive aggressiveness or compensation for inferiority or something like that about people who really enjoy scaring the shit out of other people or trying to get other people to believe stupid shit and then springing on them that they fell for bullshit. Same goes with people who really get into practical jokes, especially on other people who don't particularly appreciate them. I don't know that I'm necessarily right about that but that's what it seems like to me.

    Maybe it comes from my brothers who used to scare me as a little kid. Not sure.

    @ClumpyStern Who is the chick in your AV? Hubba-hubba.

    I guess it depends on the situation and who the prank is done on.

    If it's outside during Halloween, all bets are off.

    Yeah, I could see that too: maybe a learned pattern of interaction, kind of the way people whose siblings picked on them tend to get into patterns of ruthless ball-busting with their friends (or make friends with other people who share that tendency). Thanks, AV chick is Mrs. Clumpy at Sirius. She used to come with me to SFRT sometimes and hang out in the production booth in the background there during the show. Kaplan took that picture for us.

    I don't like it
    I don't like pranks either or surprises of any kind
    I like to be scared on my own terms - watch a scary movie , etc.

    I like when a man gets scared by something and screeches like a little girl. That's funny to me. I do not like being scared by other people, but I do love the feeling of being scared from watching a horror movie or reading creepy stuff.
