Packing Peanuts!

Charles just sent me the popular packing peanuts prank. Unfortunately or maybe it is fortunately, we never had access to styrofoam peanuts. Plus we were always too cheap to buy any supplies, the thrill of doing it on the cheap. :)

Here's what Charles sent me, good job on this one, looks great!

My supervisor had gone to California for a couple of weeks and the Friday before he returned we were bored and decided to play a prank on him. We drove down to a local packing supply store and purchased 3 big bags of peanuts. Then we built a box into his window and filled the peanuts between the box and the window. The effect on the outside was so convincing he almost fell into his office. He came in early on Monday and after seeing the peanuts he figured he'd just have to push his door in really hard to open in. He was really surprised when the door opened without any trouble.

p.s. I think ultimately the prank was on all of us because his first job
for us on Monday was cleaning up the mess we had made.

Make sure to turn electrical equipment off first.

A co-worker of mine burned down half a building with 500 employees when he did this cute prank on a coworker he was attracted too.

Pretty embarassing for him to show up to work after that.

Wow! We did exactly this at Lighthouse Design in something like 1996. We anticipated the door push thing, though. I forget exactly how, but we did something to keep the door opening too easily. The victim almost wet her pants when she felt the door resist--"you really filled it!"

rjrjr - the easiest thing to do would be to put a doorstop on the inside. Just tie a string to it and pull it up against the door once you close it, then cut off the string.

A banks is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Banks primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by bank vary over time and location. Bank are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, bank have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States bank are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=]CLICK HERE[/url]
