Funny, and cruel at the same time. Fluorescent light bulbs lighing up is a good method to demonstarte nonengineering type a reason to feer geeks. ;-)

What a missed opportunity to straighten out an unintended consequence! I do hope that his prank answer inspired the fellow to change rooms instead of quitting the university. It did at least make it the room instead of the person. It would be a shame to lose a potentially good student over something like that.

I knew there was a reason I lived in Vermillion instead of Griggs! Your buddy should have tried to get into LSH. Higher building and higher on the hill (plus more victims for haunting!)

I do hope your friend eventually "came clean" and explained SSB RF fields and their action on passive receptors. Tricking this poor fellow into believing in hauntings for the rest of his life is some kind of mental cruelty, especially as it was jiggering his decision whether or not to remain in school. We are engineers, not lawyers. We play jokes, but not the type to cause permanent harm.
