In this day and age people really want to keep hold of their jobs – there is a recession on after all. Plus with every keystroke at your terminal recorded it is far too easy for bosses to discover that you have been spending half your time on YouTube, StumbleUpon, Facebook or Ebay instead of working. So, many people, when bored, are going back to more traditional ways of shirking while working. Step forward the humble paper clip.
Let’s start with something that may make you look as if you are half way working, if discovered. Bend a paper clip and insert one side of the paper clip that is KeyPopper(tm, patent pending) – under the edge of the key you wish to remove. They can then be cleaned properly and replaced.
Admittedly there is a little more effort involved, but with time and patience you too could create a lovely paper clip fawn.
OK, this is not the best quality photograph, but we had to include it. For those Star Wars fans with nothing better to do why not faithfully reproduce an X-Wing fighter?
