Top 8 instructables to avoid working on a Monday Answered

"Americans hate their jobs more than ever before in the past 20 years, with fewer than half saying they are satisfied.

The trend is strongest among workers under the age of 25, less than 39 percent of whom are satisfied with their jobs.

Workers age 45 to 54 have the second lowest level of satisfaction (less than 45 percent), according to a survey conducted by The Conference Board, a market information company that also puts out the Consumer Confidence Index and the Leading Economic Indicators."

Forget Monday- we're going to have a Paper Claws Death Match tomorrow!

I'm in the process of building a high torque electric trebuchet to launch ginger snaps down the hall towards your office! Beware. It's on at instructables HQ.

Go for what that beer launching fridge guy did ;) He can dial in just about any force necessary to hit his target (usually on the first try) :D

You clearly haven't seen what I've done to your desk chair...
