    Long story short. I get to take sociology this Semester. First project? Violate a social norm. Things we deem as normal behavior in society. Such as shaking with your right hand, walking forward, and so on.

    Well I need ideas for said project. I have to do it in a public place, and record the reactions of people passing by. My first thought;

    Empty out a mayonnaise jar, wash it out, and fill it with vanilla pudding. Sit on a bench in the mall, and start eating it with a spoon. Have my brother record people. But here are some past ideas people have done. Anyone got a good one? Must be legal.

    Similar to that pudding mayo thing, fill a Windex spray bottle with Gatorade and spray it into your mouth in public. (Make sure you wash it out thoroughly first. In fact, better use a new spray bottle and just stick the Windex sticker on it.)

    Try to make a long conversation with a stranger as if they were your best friend and keep following them.

    Is public nudity out of the question? Because that's my answer if it isn't.

    Anyway, if you really want to get under people's skin, go with your vanilla pudding idea, BUT eat with a fork instead. If you really want to shake the foundations, ask people nearby if they want to share it with you. Goodbye, Devin; hello, Tyler Durden.

    Shit in a public place and watch softcore porn out loud. Pretend it's an interesting movie, and laugh at various parts.


    EDIT: Shit, I meant sit. But it's funny enough that I'm not changing it.

    Good idea, except for the fact this is already common in the US. :lol:

    My idea: bring a metal detector and shovel inside a shopping center and begin prospecting. :P
    I had had an alternate idea involving breast-feeding but I'll spare you the details :lol:

    Go to a restaurant. Do everything normally except sit at your table. Just stand like its normal to not sit at a booth or something.

    I'd go with your mayo idea. That seems like a good one.


    Hey buddy we don't need any more Soulx's in this world.

    Credit Card Representatives already do this in stores.
    Or maybe that's just the store I work at...it's really embarrassing.

    Play on loudspeaker on a phone or other in a train, and watch the people sitting outside a 2 meter radius relative to you.
