How to Make Office Weapons Out of Office Supplies Wow, if you thought working at your white-collared job, sitting in your well equipped air-conditioned office, thinking that this is probably one of the safest place to be… you may just want to think twice about that. The office is a jungle. Beside having to watch your back against office colleagues who may be wolf in sheep’s clothes, you may just have to watch out for those seemingly utilitarian office supplies, because in conjuncture with other seemingly innocent office supplies, they may just result to be one of the deadliest office weapon yet.

Reverse wrap the larger rubber band. stumbleupon - a clever bot - speak to an AI with some Actual Intelligence? FoldiFun Factory Welcome to my Foldables FoldiFun Factory!

Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits Using Google in the Classroom-A Series Today I am going to be starting a week-long series on how to use Google in the classroom. We were very fortunate this year and transitioned over to Google for our e-mail system. We got all of the perks that came along with Google, including Google Docs, Calendar, etc. Please understand that my district does not have a lot of money. The first post in my series is creating a library book checkout system using Google Forms. Once you are logged into your Google account, you will want to go to documents. On this page, you will create your form. In the first box "Question Title," I have Name and "Question Type" is Choose from List. On all Google Forms, you are only given sample question 1. Next, click "Add Item" again and add another text box. If you want to spice up your form, you can select a theme. Click here to see my sample form. Once students submit responses through this form, they will be saved in a spreadsheet in your Google Docs.
