    Be outrageous.


  • Try to do the opposite of what you normally do, or at least find a different way to do things.
  • Do something crazy.
  • Don't regret the minor things.


  • If you do stuff like this every day eventually 1) people will think you have become crazy and will treat you appropriately or 2) you will actually become crazy.
  • When throwing something at someone, make sure you are not still dizzy when you try to run, as the police will find it easy to catch you!
  • Do not do anything illegal. You don't need that kind of problem. Doing things differently should be about subtle changes in behavior.
  • If walking backwards, use a mirror too see what is behind you. Not knowing where you are going may cause injury. (If this can't be done try looking around every now and then.)
  • When in public, act like you are handicapped or retarded. People love to stare.

Things You'll Need

  • A friend
  • A house/flat/room
