    Default Having fun at work

    Commercial airliner is 'hijacked from Seattle-Tacoma Airport', say reports | Daily Mail Online


    I'm thinking of hijacking a laptop and then doing somersaults and a few roly polys with it.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    We used to have Doom multiplayer Lan parties after hours.

    Not quite the same league as suicide by airliner though - I like living.

    We had something similar running on MVS. VM was fun though. Text files with unencrypted passwords...

    I was quite impressed at the guy's flying skills. I don't think I'd be able to do a barrel roll and get away with it.
