    Thought I would start a thread to see what weird things people do or make at work.
    We have several things such as a folder with some really weird or funny documents or names we come across and at my old work the guys in the warehouse had a Memory card called the "black box" that had all the porn that was on customers phones (I worked for a phone manufacturer and swapped faulty units out).

    My favorite streak of Genius/insanity was to turn my old eclipse tins into a robot and actually name it ecliptron !!
    Below is a photos of the 2 that I have made at work, They get alot of comments in my office but everyone seems to like them.

    And yes, I am just a little weird :D

    Ahh, well, a couple of years ago at my old uni campus back in Bundy, a mate and i were bumming around at uni on I think Queen's Birthday...we had some of those MS Office 2007 60 day trial CDs...empty computer lab with no cameras...and we decided to use said CDs for games such as ten pin bowling (using the rows of computers as lanes) and frisbee...great fun :D

    Heaps of stupid **** personally. The introduction of high vis gear saw me cut a vest up into a g string and go into the manager complaining about chaffe. Also after tearing a high vis jacket I ripped all the outer off leaving me with this hip/hop gangster type white puffy jacket, then removed the wall clock, got some chain and put it around my neck, flashback to 80's hip hop.

    Way back in the day i remember having a new guy in tears on his first day of work doing late night fill, called out hey bro, he looks around and im feeding the chooks doing jizz shots using a shaving cream can. Ended up good mates still to this day ten years on, still reminds bout it lol

    well I think you know some of the stuff I get up to, an oldie is ninja star CD;s where we get the old CD's, cut them into a star shape, setup a rubber band slingshot type thing, pull back and release. It flies about 5 meters into some rubber on the wall. If it misses is smashes into the concrete wall and shatters :whistling

    Putting things into orbit by activating airbags is fun too, they have to be deployed before being disposed of obviously so we get to have the fun. Roof curtains are fun :whistling

    we used to have a few rubber bouncy balls we'd throw at each other through the shop when there were no customers.

    then there were the fluro light ballast thingos, when we changed every fluro in the shop. that was about 12 months ago, and we found a rogue ballast lying around somewhere a few weeks back.

    ive got a vid of the boss riding a pushy in the store(promo bike), he must be mellowing out something chronic in his old age, couple years ago, he'd never have done that



    edit: video added, found it, on youtube it goes

    This is a long shot but you dont work for Deutsche Bank do you?

    I was doing a relocation of PC's in the city not long ago, i remember seeing a desk with a massive collection of Eclipse tins!! thought it was a pretty weird/random thing to collect but now it seems not that uncommon lol.

    Mate, in some workplaces, that sort of thing would see you being charged for sexual harassment, appearing at court and losing your job...

    oh and of course my collection of work related matchbox cars ... and the piggies ;P

    We took the battery out of a cordless phone, used some paper clips as legs and a chapstick top cover thing as a snout!

    yeah i realise this, but the managers pretty cool, she didnt care that much, just told me to get rid of it. Wasnt intended for her or anything, just me and one of the other guys having a laugh, but she was laughing with us in the end :)
