Link with 900: Straight line.

[One year while I was still in school I had a summer job in a government office. We worked hard but there were times when we tried to let off a little steam, especially on Friday afternoons. Occasionally we staged inter-office wars and the rubber band was the weapon of choice. By the end of the summer our aim had gotten pretty good. I recall one time a security guard held up his cigarette and challenged me to hit it from across the lobby. To his surprise I knocked it out of his fingers on the first shot. That summer I felt like a top gun.]

Ha! When I first rose to 'Manager status' I introduced beer and networked games of Marathon (a Mac game not unlike Doom) every Friday afternoon from 3pm onwards . . . great team building exercise and great fun! ;-)

The week before my co-worker moved out of town and took a job somewhere else, she shot a rubber band at me (and my boss)

The boss had her pencil in her hand.
The rubber band flew about 20 feet and landed a ringer on the bosses pencil.

We were all in stitches. She was such a horrid shot, it had to be a good bye gift.
