Such an application always deserves 5 stars + 1 on my behalf. I remember an application, labelled ‘Boss is coming’ for Mac OS 8–9, I installed in 1998–1999. When triggered, the computer had such an intense activity, that you could ask for double holidays and at least a double salary.

I am definitely using this for April Fool's! I'm gonna put it on my dad's MacBook and set it to launch on startup… good times.

Good idea, put it on the watch, maybe its author publishes something better than this.

EEK! I've seen only only one of these under an early version of Tiger; Panther several. Very realistic, lots of fun, put this in someone's StartupItems. Wait, did I say that?

This is exactly as taking the pants off to fart. Totally pointless.

Far from pointless......I always remove my pants to fart at funerals, bar mitzvahs, and speeches/appearences by political and religious figures, whenever/wherever I want to make a heartfelt point.
iPanic performs the same function when used against those just asking for a good startling.

This app could be used to show and explain to someone new on Mac what is a KP and what to do in a case a KP occur.
You see, it has educational purpose now ;)

Yes, it's exactly what i am going to use it for. KP is a very unsual situation and must be recognised by newbies. Thanks to the develloper.

Precisely. The app doesn't do anything, the person who holds down power does.

Looks so real ! And it's doing exactly what it's suppose to, so 5 stars :-)

Those apps are NOT "harmless" as the author thinks.

If a user who does not know that this toy is interfering (collegue, family) resets the computer, and looses valuable unsaved work, that's no fun.

Guns don't kill people, people kill people. This app doesn't cause harm, people do.

What you are actually doing here is to comparing this with a GUN. You just proved me right, thanks. hehe *g*

But this is wrong thinking: This is not a weapon. This is a toy with maybe hazardous side effects that playful users might not consider when trying it out.

The only actual damage that could be done by this program is if someone had a heart condition and thought it was real. That could be a problem...

Otherwise, side from shortening your life by a few minutes, it's harmless.
