What ever happened to good clean fun ?

 

TRUE, Like connecting the spark plug testing lead to the steel bench when someone is working.haa,,.

 At An early mechanic job (1971) in Melbourne (Au) we used to wash all engines as part of "customer service"..We used a "solvent" in a spray jet,,,that came in 44 gal drums.

I'm not sure of it's chemistry but highly flammable.....However,,We had to wait 10 minutes for it to evaporate before starting the engine otherwise fumes trapped inside the distributor cap  would blow the distributor cap clean Off.  Government health and safety banned it eventually 😂..

Chicago had sewer grates not lids in some places. One 4 th of July  - around 1960 - a guy (not me I swear) got  M-80s, taped 4 together (The M-80 got its name from the 80 grains (roughly 5 grams) of flash powder it contained. The M stood for military, or military-issue.)

I stood across the street while he lit the fuses and threw into sewer. Not the brightest bulb, he didn't move very far away. New nickname was "sh!tface"

Our auto shop teacher had a car coil wired to one of the steel benches with the switch on his desk of course. We all just laughed when he decided to wake someone up. Can you imagine the cry babies and the parents of same these days if that were to happen.

One teacher even hung me by the belt on the back of my pants on those hooks that slid across the top of the blackboard. He left me there the whole hour, LOL No big deal. That was about 1960 or so,
