I get pretty bored at work.
Just before Christmas I was more bored than usual.

A quick look over my desk revealed the following items to me:

A Scalpel (with blade)
Lots of rubber bands
A steel scale ruler

"Hmmm..." I thought, braiding the rubber bands together, "I wonder how far I can fire the scalpel."

I pointed it at the ceiling, pulled back on my improvised catapult and let the medical-grade pointy thing fly.

We've now got a scalpel-shaped hole in the window in our office, as my shot went ever-so-slightly off course, burst through the glass, and embedded itself in the roof of the corridor.

Well... I've not had to explain it yet.
I think they've assumed that someone hit it with a bit of wood or something.
EDIT: Or are you saying that only I could miss an entire office ceiling?
