Office Games

Posted by Luminus on February 24, 2006

Here’s a neat trick you can play on your mates in the office.

Death By Desktop

Players : 1
Required : Access to your colleagues computers for 3-5minutes.
Potential Pain Rating : 4/5.

When your colleague steps away from their desk, take a screenshot of their desktop. Save this using paint or any other photo editing software.

Set this as their desktop wallpaper and turn off desktop icons (right click desktop -> arrange icons by -> show desktop icons). This will create the illusion of the icons being there, but they are impossible to click.

Depending on the awareness of the user, this can (and has) lead to a format.

Just don’t try it on the MD or anyone in upper management unless you’re looking to lose your job. Then again, if you’re in the IT Department and you’re a li’l jobless, you could try it on the MD (assuming that you’re sure he’ll call you if his PC has issues), to increase your relevance.

Just a silly thought 😉

It’s all Adam’s fault

Posted by Luminus on February 21, 2006

Hey, before y’all flame me for being a chauvinist, I’m not. I just got this in my email and it cracked me up so i thought I should share it. Ladies, please be objective, plus I already posted some stuff for you guys before. 😉

Adam was hanging around the garden of Eden feeling very lonely so, God asked him, “What’s wrong with you?”
Adam said he didn’t have anyone to talk to. God said that He was going to make Adam a companion and that it would be a woman

He said, “This pretty lady will gather food for you, she will cook for you and when you discover clothing, she will wash it for you. She will always agree with every decision you make and she will not nag you and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you’ve had a disagreement. She will praise you! She will bear your children.and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them.

“She will NEVER have a headache and will freely give you love and passion whenever you need it.”

Adam asked God, “What will a woman like this cost?”

God replied, “An arm and a leg.”

Then Adam asked, “What can I get for a rib?”

Of course the rest is history………………….

Good Luck!
