Peter answers...

We've had this prank going on at work today about PeterAnswers.com. If you haven't seen it yet, then you need to cuz it's great fun and an ideal way to play a prank on friends/family etc. All you gotta do is visit the site where you'll be presented with a petition and a question field. Try going through it normally the first time just to familiarize yourself with the site. Note the colon ":" at the end of each of these queries. This is essential because without it, you will not be able to proceed to the question box. Once you type the phrase and enter the colon your cursor will automatically be in the question box. You can ask any question you like, but you must end it with a question mark "?".

Now, how to pull the prank:

  1. Gather a friend or two and sit at the computer. You must be the one typing in order for the prank to work. :)
  2. Have someone else think of a question. You need to know the question before you type anything.
  3. Type a period "." in the "Insert Petition" box. You'll notice that the letter "P" will appear instead of a period.
  4. Type in the answer to the question. As you type each letter or number of the answer, the screen will display one more letter of the phrase, "Peter, please answer the following question:" This means no one will know that you're typing the answer to the question, because it looks like you're typing, "Peter, please answer the following question:".
  5. Type another period "." when you're done entering the answer. When you type another period, the next letter of the petition phrase ("Peter, please answer the following question:") will appear.
  6. Complete the petition phrase. Once you've typed the second period, the actual letters you type will show up on the screen. Now, just finish the phrase, being sure to end it with the colon.
  7. Type in the question. Just as above, the cursor will jump to the question box as soon as you enter the colon. Type the question that was asked, and end it with a question mark. Peter will think for a second and then display the answer that you typed.
  8. Watch your friends freak out as they see the answer right! If your friends don't know that you typed in the answer, they will be flabbergasted! :). You can probably keep them amazed for quite a while as long as they don't start paying close attention to what your fingers are actually typing ... heh :)
Have fun! ;)

Ah ok. Well if its not too much to ask this is just a request. Leave razasays.com alone. I thought long and hard on it and i want to register it in 2 months when i get my other paycheck. Thanks. Your a bright guy and you can come up with a new name if you want :D.

Ok, it sounds great btw! Lets just hope nobody else picks it up while it's still out there - I say that because I've lost a precious domain before. :(

wow, thats new.

Reza said...

Yea hopefully I will buy it in the next 2 months too .. If it holds out that long and noone else steals it. Thanks though. You lost a domain because you didnt register it in time or someone stole it after it was yours?

Razz said...

Well, I bought it for free in the days of the dot-com boom using a service called NameZero. They had their conditions for FREE access and took it away after some time. I let it go hoping that it would end up back in the market, but instead someone else picked it up and they still got it! :(

Peter answers is a great trick but be sure to not answer every question exactly right - that makes it too obvious!

It seems like this trick is getting popular again, I have seen a couple people this week already try to trick someone with it.
