    When I was in year 7, I spun a fountain pen round on the desk; momentarily forgetting the effect that centrifugal force would have on the ink inside.

    Nice blue pattern on the desk though - give it a go

    Ink splatter is one of the accepted reasons for my keeping latex gloves in my desk drawers. I say "accepted". Not necessarily "believed". Along with the whip (left by a teacher, very effective on numpty staff at the printer), and the Axis 2100 cam (GIMPcam), they go a long way to explaining some of the rumours about me, and what myself and the NM get upto after hours.

    Believe it or not, staff are somewhat scared of us...

    We do encourage it. Staff come in, rip the trays out the printer because their work hasn't come out and therefore it MUST be out of paper (we keep it stocked)..there often follows a "swish, crack, AARGH! NO! LEAVE IT alone. Does it SAY "pull my bloody trays out?", Is there a red light? No? Then LEARN - now go away and click the "OK" button to start the print, fool."

    The message gets across speedily. It also works to keep the head of IT in line...if he sees me pull on my gloves with a crack and a grin, he tends to wander off quick.

    I managed to get a nice cyan stripe on my jacket once from a used toner cartridge... and there's a wall in one of our basements which I always lean on, and always end up with a chalky/dusty muck all over. I'm down there next week and I'm sure I'll manage it.

    This is a good idea! Anything left on my desk tends to go walkies. I'm not much better myself, as the pen collection is usually replenished with various biros I've subconsciously uplifted from desks/floors etc.

    Sir Bendy perhaps you can lend Ric your whip to whip Stu into shape so he actually wears his uniform correctly, I don't care how warm it is you should look smart at all times, I've been rigging lighting and fitting projectors in Shirt and Tie in the past so you should always look the part. We have a reputation to live up to and to show were professionals it should be shirt and tie at all times really, except holidays or when you have a very specific pre-planned job to do.
