Python mischief

I'm new to python, and have been wondering how I can dick around with it. I use to mess around with vbs scripts when I was younger making fake virus messages, shutting down computers, and general bullshit. I was wondering if there is anything like that I could do in python. Hopefully something a little bit more fun since python is a more advanced language. I'm not going to be a dick or anything with the programs. I just feel that I learned a lot about basic coding when I was messing around with vbs scripts, and that I would be much more driven to practice python if I had some more fun things to mess around with.
