Ok....if you are really a guy, then all of you at some point have done something really pointless, and moderately destructive or at least counterproductive. We can't help it. This is what us guys do. Since we all have violent tendancies inherent in our nature, we find a creative outlet, and do these harmless, albeit extremely immature acts to relieve the tension. It sure beats burning a house down or something. Here are some of my proud achievements from over the years:
Videotaped myself dropping a microwave oven off the top of a second story house.
Smashed an old TV set with a sledgehammer just to watch the screen implode
Set stuffed animals on fire
Doused a barbecue grill with gasoline, and ignited it.
Put firecrackers inside model airplanes and blew them up
Called taxis and pizza deliveries to my neighbors
Sprinkled gun powder on the ground, and ignited it to watch it burn
Hurled Coke cans from my backyard over the house to watch them blow up in the street
Built and used a "spud gun" to launch potatoes
Put firecrackers inside beer or soda cans to watch them jump into the air when the lit firecracker detonates.
Launched road flares into a pumpkin
Things I'd like to do:
Drive a car into a lake
Push a porcelain toilet off the top of a second story roof.
Buy two old junk heap cars and with my buddy, drive them into each other.
Buy an old car, drain the oil, and see how long the engine will run.

We shot BB guns at model airplanes. Each guy had his planes and we shot at each others. The last one with a plane that could still fly would win. Of course we had to determine if the plane were still air-worthy if it were real.
We caught several catfish; brought them back to the city and dumped them in a neighbor's neglected pool
We threw tomatoes and dirt-clods at passing cars (and of course, snowballs).

You sound like you'd get along great with my brother Matt.
My list of things isn't quite as long I don't think, but I've been known to do my share. Guess I don't act my age. Yep, I've done the whole pizza delivery thing and sent cabs to people too. Shot up a computer monitor with a rifle, opened up oreos and stuck them all over my brother's car (okay, this one was very recent I admit it!), Go to the Swifty Serve convenience store because very bizarre things always happen there (I think it's a portal to another universe), throw wadded up napkins onto my mom's bookshelves and try to get them behind all the books and crap, drive around with a troll doll in the sunroof of my car. I'm sure there's more, but this should be enough to prove that I'm a total dufus.
