Some Macs have a Rotate display feature. Seem to depend on the Video card in your Mac. My iMac G5 does not but my G4 Mini and Mini Core Duo both do and you can rotate it both upside down and 90 Degrees either side. To check if your Mac allows you to rotate, open System Preferences, Displays and you should see a rotate toward the bottom left.

For Screenshots you hold Apple-Shift-3 and it takes a shot of the whole desktop. You can also use Apple-Shift-4 and select the area you want to capture and in that mode point at one open window and hit the SpaceBar and it will do just that open window. It saves the pic on the desktop as Picture 1, 2 ETC.

Tell them their parents died.

That'll teach 'em.

Just kidding, of course.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Not quite what you are talking about but I once switched two keys on the keyboard at work. I think it was the m and n keys. Easy way to get on the nerves of those who don't know how to type properly. Pretty funny too. I suggest switching to side-by-side keys as its less obvious.

Ridiculous- adjective: deserving or inviting derision or mockery; absurd. ex. It is ridiculous how many people think the word ridiculous is spelled with an 'e'.

I did that, the M and N thing. Also switched the number pad around so 123 was at the top, like a phone.

My school uses Windows and I remember playing quite a funny trick. All accounts of the school's computers' (both teachers' and students') can actually access other's harddisks (all harddisks are shared). It's just that when you log in as a student you don't have the cmd and My Computer, accessing directories from programs is also restricted. What I did was creating a shortcut on the desktop which links to C: drive. I double-click the shortcut and magically I have control of all files. Then I made a text file which says 'hahahahahaha' on the admin's desktop. I copied and pasted it so that his desktop would be full of hahahahaha messages! lol That was really stupid but nonetheless very funny.

And how do you take a screen shot?
Command+Shift+3

It is on my Mac at least... I think that's the generic shortcut.
