Stop the pranks

We have bear pranks, monsters and devils in the streets, just for a laugh TV pranks, and what else? Great fun no doubt, till a youth was cut down in a shopping centre and people thought it was all staged. If we keep on staging pranks in the public, in no time no one will believe anything. We told the public to be vigilance but if we keep testing them with fakes, it may have the reverse effects. People will simply ignore them at a time when it is real and needing attention. Pranks can be dangerous if not carefully managed. They can backfire.

We are a "first world" country with a third world mentality.

We are not yet ready for pranks or any form of creative advertising.

Give us another 15 years.

Thank you.

Accidents happen everywhere,
please do not be too paranoid.
Although it is true that pranks may de-sensitize the emotion, staged pranks can be properly managed with safety measures.
Some laughs can lift and
benefit the spirit.
Keep them coming, however,
please put in the safety measures.

Anyone want to hire me as a math or science teacher?
