Artful prankster creates Google Maps traffic jams by walking a cartful of old phones around Berlin

Venerable and Fragrant Wind of Change

Reminds me of a student prank by some friends ...

Main car park detects metal to count incoming and outgoing vehicles. Issues ticket to entering driver, reads ticket and takes payment on exit.

Students decide to play. Go there middle-of-night when it's empty. One swings a metal dustbin lid backwards and forwards across the detector at the entrance, another collects the tickets as they're issued. In the morning, car park is empty but thinks it's full and won't let any more cars in.
