3. Homemade Pen/Pencil Cannons
When we got bored in class, sometimes our thoughts turned to turning the contents of our pencil boxes into projectile weapons. Hacking a retractable pen was the best option — they needed no additional parts to fling something across the room.
6. Temporary Tattoos
Administrators often banned temporary tattoos as part of the dress code, perhaps because they felt they would encourage actual tattooing. Sometimes we were warned about sick individuals who used temporary tattoos to get kids high on lickable PCP.
8. Rubber Poppers
The whole point of these toys was to turn them inside out and watch them “pop.” After the third time you set one off in math class, it was likely to be confiscated and never seen again. Luckily, they were easy to replace. Advanced popper owners discovered that it was more entertaining to use suction to covertly stick them to friends’ bodies.
10. Slam Books
Slam books were circulating notebooks containing questions or names of individuals for classmates to respond to. A staple of ’80s classroom life, slam books were frowned upon in the ’90s for promoting bullying and inappropriate content.
