    I guess I don’t understand some of these kind of practical jokes.

    I understand leaving a hidden hello or a time capsule or mementos—I’ve done that when I moved. But why would you want to take the chance some poor child discovers what they think is a human corpse in their home? Or to have someone follow a wild goose chase for days or weeks?

    Someone once left a box on our front porch, it was wrapped in brown paper and twine, with grease marks leaking through and a note that read, “This is not a bomb.”

    I guess some folks think that’s funny as heck.

    It wasn’t.

    Make a hidden aeolian harp or similar resonant haunting sound generator. They'll hear eerie ethereal music every time the wind kicks up.

    Some inquisitive folks love a good mystery!

    If the future inhabitants go poking around in spaces - they may be the kind of people who would love finding a treasure map. Create clues to navigate to a location; like a spot in your backyard that probably will remain untouched. Then bury a time capsule of some sort.

    Fill the time capsule with expensive looking elaborate jewelry (costume jewelry). Put in some novelty Million Dollar bills.

    Add a photo of yourself (make it look like a vintage old photo - may be wear old west costumes). Have a hand written letter of how you made your millions authoring a book on pranks to play on folks in the future.

    leave something that will bring the finders joy!

    or the interesting route like a period correct toolbox with hand tools.

    or a nice factory sealed bottle of the good stuff with a kind message!
