Sort of reminds me of when one of my college classmates used to pull tricks.
One was that whenever he was at a busy street intersection while driving his new car, and he was first in line at a red light, he would get out and go open the hood and stare down at the engine. Lights turned green, not once, but twice before he got back in and moved ahead. Lots of horns honking in the meantime.
He was also a PP and owned an old T-craft with which he used to do out of the ordinary things. His favorite was to touchdown on the left wheel, then feed in left aileron until the wingtip touched the runway surface during the rollout. But he later got a very somber message that flying is not only fun, but dangerous as well. While on a sightseeing flight, a large portion of top fabric on his right wing peeled back causing a substatial loss of lift. Luckily, by having to use full left aileron and some opposite rudder, he managed to 'crab' in to the nearest airport and made it OK.
