Crazy Prank That You Can Play On Your Colleague

A practical joke (sometimes called a prank, gag, jape or shenanigan) is a mischievous trick or joke played on someone, typically causing the victim to experience embarrassment, perplexity, confusion, or discomfort. Practical jokes differ from confidence tricks or hoaxes in that the victim finds out, or is let in on the joke, rather than being fooled into handing over money or other valuables. Practical jokes or pranks are generally lighthearted, reversible and non-permanent, and aim to make the victim feel foolish or victimised to a degree, but may also involve cruelty verging on bullying if performed without appropriate finesse.

The term “practical” refers to the fact that the joke consists of someone doing something physical, instead of a verbal or written joke. For example, the joker who is setting up and performing the practical joke might hang a bucket of water above a doorway and rig the bucket using pulleys so when the door opens the bucket dumps the water. The joker would then wait for the victim to walk through the doorway and be drenched by the bucket of water. Objects can also be used in practical jokes, like fake vomit, chewing gum bugs, exploding cigars, stink bombs, costumes and whoopee cushions.

In Western culture, April Fools’ Day is a day traditionally dedicated to performing practical jokes. A person who performs a practical joke is called a practical joker. The most common cases of practical jokes are encountered inside offices, usually to surprise co-workers. Covering the computer accessories with Jell-O, wrapping the desk with Christmas paper or aluminium foil or filling it with balloons are just some examples of office pranks.

Office Desk With A Bed

A desk is a piece of wooden furniture and a type of useful table often used in a school or office setting for various academic activities such as reading or writing or using a computer.

Desks sometimes have one or more drawers, compartments, or pigeon holes intended for storage of office supplies and papers. Unlike a regular table, usually only one side of a desk is suitable to sit on (though there are some exceptions, such as a partners desk). Not all desks have the form of a table. For instance, an armoire desk is a desk built within a large wardrobe-like cabinet, and a portable desk is light enough to be placed on a person’s lap. Since many people lean on a desk while using it, a desk must be sturdy. Desk were first made from wood, but are slowly being converted into harder materials that last longer.

A desk is also known as a bureau, counter, davenport, escritoire, lectern, reading stand, rolltop desk, school desk, workspace or writing desk. In Spanish a desk is called el escritorio.

The word desk comes from the Modern Latin word desca, “table to write on”, from the mid 14th century. It is a modification of the Old Italian desco table, from Latin discus dish, disc. The word desk has been used figuratively since 1797.

Table That Allows You To Sleep During Work

A table is a form of furniture with a flat and satisfactory horizontal upper surface used to support objects of interest, for storage, show, and/or manipulation. The surface must be held stable; for reasons of simplicity, this is done by support from below by either a column, a “base” or at least three columnar “stands”.

A table is also known as a Mesa, a bench, a board, a bureau, a desk, a lectern and a pulpit.

Common design elements include:

rectangular, rounded, or semi-circular top surfaces

legs arranged in two or more similar pairs

several geometries of folding table that can be emptied and then collapsed into a smaller volume

heights ranging up and down from the most common 18-to-30-inch range, often reflecting the height of chairs or bar stools used as seating for people making use of a table, as for eating or performing various manipulations of objects resting on a table

presence or absence of drawers

expansion of the surface by insertion of leaves or locking hinged drop leaf sections into horizontal position.

Desks are tables specifically intended for information-manipulation tasks, including writing and use of interactive electronics.

The term “table” is derived from a merger of French table and Old English tabele, ultimately from the Latin word tabula, “a board, plank, flat top piece”. In Late Latin, tabula took over the meaning previously reserved to mensa (preserved in Spanish and Portuguese mesa “table”). In Old English, the word was bord, replaced by “table” for this meaning.
