Try lobbing used Q-tips. Nothing like earwax to ruin someone's day.

Simple, which is always good. Simple uncomplicates a project to where someone somewhat new to 'office warfare' could build one to lob items into other people's workspaces. Built one for Dad who works in an office, and he spends half his day working, the other half lobbing Q-Tips into other cubicles. (The Q-Tips keep people safe while being irritating.)
this is kinda embarasing but how do u tye up tye up the rubber band to the tube.
use wads of tape
This is just like a pen bow except with out long arms. To make a pen bow just take the ink container out of a pen (a BIC pen or something like it) the drill a hole the width of the ink container throught the center of the pen casing. then you tape a rubber band so you can pull the ink cartrige back through the hole and use the elasticity to shoot it at sometihing.
