Two days ago, I woke up and I realised that I have these two possibilities:

  • Telekinesis (ability to move objects and objects only using my will)
  • Invisibility castable on objects only

Both are bound to these rules:

  • The objects have to be in my plain sight. Trying to move something what is shown in live TV feed does not do anything. But I can use telescope and my ability will be applied.
  • Invisibility is applied just to human eye and normal camera. For example, infrared camera will still see such object
  • I have to concentrate in order to make any effect. So object can move as long as I concentrate on it to move. The same applies with invisibility. Even someone calling my name will drop my concentration
  • Doing these tricks for more than 4 hours straight provides me headaches. I did see no other side effects on my mind or body
  • And as stated above, both abilities apply to objects and objects only. It does not matter how much I concentrate, it simply does nothing when cast on people or animals.
  • While I can make any object invisible (even biggest building in my town), it seems that I can move only "free lying" objects, but then there is no weight limit (tried to move big bulldozer successfully)
  • Edit: I tried to make Sun invisible for split second. Nothing happened. And I am too afraid to try to move anything too big because I do not want to cause any troubles. I want to have fun.
  • Also, levitating shoes and then stepping on them is proven to be working. But it requires a lot of concentration, so I can do levitating tricks involving people or animals, if they are in some object. But I get headaches in less than hour of doing so.

As I am bit "trickster" by personality:

I want to make huge April fools joke using these abilities. What should I do?

I am Schengen Area citizen and I am willing to spend up to 4000 Euro if needed (say to travel somewhere).

To put this question in scope of Worldbulding: "Winning criteria" for this is number of people who get "trolled" by my trick.

And, I do not want to commit any crime or do something which cannot be undone. I want to have fun, not to cause troubles

  • $\begingroup$ Is there a limit to the speed which you can move objects? could you move the bulldozer just as quickly as a small pebble? Also, can you levitate yourself? $\endgroup$ – DoubleDouble Mar 24 '15 at 14:34
  • $\begingroup$ I guess objects only sort of covers my levitation question, until I wonder if I can levitate my shoes into the air while standing in them. $\endgroup$ – DoubleDouble Mar 24 '15 at 14:44

    $\begingroup$ I like this question but I think it's a little broad and slightly off-topic, could you try rewriting it? $\endgroup$ – bowlturner Mar 24 '15 at 14:48
  • $\begingroup$ Does only affect a single item or can you move contiguous objects (say, turn a beach into a sand castle with your mind)? $\endgroup$ – Isaac Kotlicky Mar 24 '15 at 15:04
  • $\begingroup$ Now that I read the off-topic description, he does state "Winning criteria" for this is number of people who get "trolled" by my trick, but I'm not sure anyone can beat turning the Earth, moon, or sun invisible. $\endgroup$ – DoubleDouble Mar 24 '15 at 15:06

You can see the Earth, so making it invisible would be a cute trick that would definitely influence a lot of people. The moon is also a good option.

Otherwise, I would just walk down the street and randomly invisible people's clothes for short periods of time. Not huge, but highly impactful.

    $\begingroup$ If you make the sun invisible, does it still light the earth? O.o $\endgroup$ – DoubleDouble Mar 24 '15 at 14:56

    $\begingroup$ @DoubleDouble: I believe this works by making light not reflect but pass through the object and doesn't affect emitted light. So an invisible bulb will be visible only as the glowing filament. $\endgroup$ – SF. Mar 25 '15 at 10:27
