Making Bongi a celebrity - well not really, but I almost got in trouble

edited June 2007 in Social Entropy++
Hi everyone. I'm a videogame tester. Through a series of strange circumstances, today, I am the only person working, from 8 this morning to 5 PM. I also happen to be extremely hungover and running on about 3 hours of sleep. Needless to say, I don't WANT to be here.

An interesting door is open, though. I'm the only person in this vast office space filled with at least 200 desks and as many computers. Now I'm supposed to spend these 9 hours just testing this one game that's got a deadline tomorrow morning. But I'd rather have some fun.

So show me your worst, SE++. Give me suggestions on how to seize the day.

And no, I will not say which company I work for, that could get me in quite a bit of trouble. I realize it's kind of ironic to say that considering what the point of this thread is.

    Actually, there are 6 big comfy couches just over there.

    Sleep would be great. But not fun.

    It's MISCHIEF I want, Internet.

    Should I take off my pants? They seem optional right now.

    I think you have misconceptions concerning what "Not doing my job" means for a tester.

    Or... you could guess the admin password, boot in to safe mode, and do it that way.

    paint the 'anarchy' symbol on your face and release the source code for free over the internet.

    edit: failing that, throw a computer containing the source code out of a window. The effect is much the same.

    Don't have access to the code, and the Internet wouldn't care, but I'd still get fired. So that's a small flaw in your plan.

    Elite Beat Agents is always a good plan.

    I haven't played that, actually.

    Maybe I could go out and find the game somewhere, steal it, take it back here, go to the break room, put it in the PS2, play it, figure out a death twice as confusing as that, and set it in action.

    I love how whenever someone mentions Montreal and game companies, everyone always assumes Ubisoft. There are quite a few other major developers in this city.

    I'm neither confirming nor denying that I work for Ubisoft.

    If I'm not working for them right now, I'd like to, yes. I can't think of another developer here that I actually CARE about.
