    We used to do indoor ParCout, but diving off desks and doing a roll usualy ended in pain.

    We used to do Hard Disk Platter Spinning ( spare platters blue tacked to a drive spindle and powered on) 15K drives are the best.

    The best was "TUB of screws" where a tub of screws (PC case/drive etc) would be strategicaly placed on a colleaugs chair/desk/etc so that it will fall of at the slightest movement.

    But the last time We did it , the tub was found next morning on the centre of the desk. The cleaner had falen prey of our set up (OOOPS). We ocasionaly just forgo the hiding element and just tiped it over someones desk, or better still someone. they were the fun times in our office whent we needed to keep our spirits up .

    Apart from the usual singing at the top of my voice, drumming on everything I walk past and communicating with the other tech, data manager or site team by bellowing down the empty corridors (oddly satisfying echo). We've played catch with stress ball, slid down the banisters and had an impromptu curling session with open corridor doors, shiny floor and keys on a lanyard... I think I'm crazy

    Wow it sounds like you lot have a lot of fun in empty school corridors - I feel moderately jealous. When ibpalle is out and about (we share a cosy office) I'm guilty of chair spinning and feet-up-on-the-desk-ing other than that, pretty much nothing - you can never be 100% sure you're alone in our building - our devs keep strange hours and it's not uncommon to find one lurking in a nook or cranny so you are likely to finish your impromptu victory dance to find an audience.

    Your devs need to learn how to do the Predator click thing.

    Much fun to be had sneaking up behind people and going that.
