Aruba (/əˈruːbə/ə-ROO-bə; Dutch pronunciation:[aːˈrubaː]) is an island country in the southern Caribbean Sea, located about 1,600 kilometres (990mi) west of the main part of the Lesser Antilles and 29 kilometres (18mi) north of the coast of Venezuela. It measures 32 kilometres (20mi) long from its northwestern to its southeastern end and 10 kilometres (6mi) across at its widest point. Together with Bonaire and Curaçao, Aruba forms a group referred to as the ABC islands. Collectively, Aruba and the other Dutch islands in the Caribbean are often called the Dutch Caribbean.
Unlike much of the Caribbean region, Aruba has a dry climate and an arid, cactus-strewn landscape. This climate has helped tourism as visitors to the island can reliably expect warm, sunny weather. It has a land area of 179km2 (69.1sqmi) and is densely populated, with a total of 102,484 inhabitants at the 2010 Census. It lies outside Hurricane Alley.
A school prank—to be carefully distinguished from school bullying or assault—is a prank primarily occurring in a school setting. The effect and intent of school pranks may include everyday play and supposedly consensual bonding behaviour. Genuine pranks can involve elaborate planning and teamwork, and they are generally harmless to all concerned, since they will not involve property damage, bullying or physical harm to anyone. When the prank has run its course, the prankster is expected to restore matters to the status quo ante, i.e., the way things were before the prank took place.
A practical joke or prank is a mischievous joke played on someone, typically causing embarrassment, confusion, or discomfort, and is generally lighthearted, reversible, and non-permanent. An extraordinary example of these relatively harmless pranks is the history of University of British Columbiaengineering undergraduates, who regularly arrange stunts like suspending the body of a Volkswagen Beetle from major bridges in Vancouver and elsewhere. Often these so-called practical jokes are thoughtlessly mean-spirited or cruel and may harm the victim and engender a lack of empathy in the perpetrator. Attitude to specific jokes is not constant and jokes that were once thought amusing may no longer be seen as such.
