Turn the electric off, remove a switch cover and the light switch.
Wire a 1N34 or 1N60 or similar signal diode across the switch.
Reinstall switch, and cover. Turn light switch on, then restore power.
When your victim turns the lights off you get a bang and a flash out
of the light switch's box. The glass body vaporizes, and so do most of
the leads. If someone inspects it for damage they will probably miss
the small remaining strand of wire that was the diode's leads.
