Hello Pit,
So for my sociology class I need to break a social norm in a public place. My original idea was to buy a gorilla suit, go to all the grocery stores in town and buy bananas... but i think my teacher will deem it TOO far fetched because he straight out said that he looks down upon dressing up because then it's obvious we're doing it for an objective reason. Basically, I need an idea that won't just make me look like a teenager acting stupid.... one that will make people question whether I'm serious or not. I figured the pit would come up with something good...

I forget the name, but one guy did something like that by getting his students to go up to random people and ask them if they could to skip ahead of them in a que or to take their place. He didnt offer an explanation and if asked said simply 'i want to sit down' or something to that effect.

That's going to be difficult, with your track record.

Anyway, I think you should stuff a balloon in your shirt so you look pregnant, and walk around smoking.

If there are very few people on a bus, go sit next to one and stare at them. When they ask what you're doing, say "you're pretty....hmmmm....you're pretty....you're very pretty "

Refer to people using old anthropological terms and by their sex.

"Excuse me, Caucasoid male. I'd like to introduce you to that female Negroid over there, the one beside the ambiguously gendered Mongoloid."

What's weird about that?

I always stand backwards- there's a mirror there and I can do my hair in it.

It's a social norm to look like a pompous douchebag with gel, polos, and the works.

Just stand very close to complete strangers. Guaranteed that most will become very uncomfortable. Try and get them in places where they can't really go anywhere, like cornering someone in an elevator.

Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

Don't do it - by doing the set work it would be conforming to the norm.

You dont need to do something especially creative in order to be seen as different. Again the name escapes me but a group of perfectly normal researchers had themselves booked into an asylum. Once there they were diagnosed with a variety of different diseases, including 'compulsive note taking' when they recorded various events. The point is much behavviour is seen as normal in a particular context, you do not need to take it too far to be seen as action out of the ordinary.

Go to your local WalMart, buy a pregnancy test, a hangar and a mini vacuum cleaner. Mutter to yourself about what a dumb bitch she is, and that she should've gone on the pill like you told her to.

If you really want to break the social norms in a McDonald's situation, you should pee in the toilet instead of the garbage can, and then wash your hands afterwards
