I logged onto my secondary PC earlier today. It's screen was flipped upside down. The mouse was working opposite of the way I was used to (up was down, left was right).
Took me a while to figure out how to fix it: (or something like that.
I don't know how I flipped it in the first place, but I'm glad I figured it out.

I was a graduate computer science student in the early 1970s. We grad students liked to play pranks on each other. Because of these pranks, we invented things like computer security, network security, backup methodologies, and even parts of the Internet.

I used to do that to mess with some people at work.
My other fav prank was to take a screen shot, and move the icons randomly that we needed for our job, and then take another screen shot.
repeat that about 4 times, and then make it the wallpaper.
so it looked like the icons were there, but it was just a picture of them.
1 out of the many was real.
