I tend to dick about with stationary
This was my greatest triumph and highlight of my working life to date. It is a fully working siege catapult I made from pencils, sellotape, an elastic band and a spoon. It was amazing.

(Tell me if i'm not supposed to put pictures in a QOTW, I'll link if needs be)

You deserve some sort of award for this
Utter brilliance. Post as may pictures as you like on 'ere.

What have you fired off it?

I used the tiny gravel from the plant pots as ammo so I could shower unsuspecting colleagues with stones whilst they were trying to talk on the phone. It had a range of about 5 meters!

That's a superb effort.
Personally I don't mind photos, but some people read QOTW on a tiny window so the boss can't see it, and pictures tend to give it away, so a link might be better, or at least smaller versions with "click for bigger"

the consensus seems to be that it's ok so I'll keep an eye on it and if anyone actually complains I'll link.

Feck 'em if they don't like pictures!
I think it's an excellent effort!

Your office allows hoodies??
You must be in that London or something. Send a memo to the West Midlands that it's OK to wear what you like at work and that it wont result in total anarchy - then maybe I'll make more of an effort to get a job. I fecking hate shirt, tie, trousers and smart shoes..

And nice catapult!

I'm not sure these photos
present positive evidence that wearing hoodies in the office doesn't lead to anarchy.

And thanks Loon for that link. I can see me spending hours making these.

The trebuget in that link seems unnecessarily complicated, just copy my catapult!

That is awesome
Wonder if marshmallows might make a good missile for it? Would certainly have your colleagues worried until they realised it was soft and squishy. And edible.
