for shits and giggles, walk around a parking lot with a clipboard, writing down license plate numbers. watch as people get paranoid, even start to threaten you.
It's amazing how people will react to this. even though their plates are visible for all to see, people go balistic.

+1 for what's being said... the world has too many crazy people in it and it's almost no effort to smear the plate so why not.
