Greenvans office: Heli-fun
Ok. So. Kev is making me write a blog about the life and times of team Greenvans. I don’t want to, and I don’t have time, but in the interest of keeping the man in charge of the internetz happy and off my back, I’m going to try to make this a regular thing.
- First of all,
not one single person on planet Earth cares about the amazing and complicated spreadsheets I spend my days building for our financial projections and customer records, so that’s out for a topic.
- Nobody cares about
which vans need new tires and brakes and whose turn it is to drop them off at the shop. That’s out too.
- So really all that’s left in our day-to-day at the office is the fierce competitions held between me and Teeny. This month’s competition: who is the best at landing a helicopter? ✔
Yes, my girlfriend’s mother did buy me a remote controlled helicopter for Xmas. Yes, It was the single best present I’ve ever received. Yes, you can buy it on Amazon for $29.99. Yes, I, of course brought it to the office. No, we haven’t gotten any work done since.
The object of the game, clearly, is to take a lap around the room and land said helicopter on the heli-pad. All four of the cross-tube ends have to fall within the circle for you to score a point (FIGURE A). NFL Rules apply (would we get sued for saying that?): If a cross tube end is touching the line, the result of the play is an incomplete pass… errr, the landing doesn’t count; no points for you (FIGURE B).
Each player gets four attempts (almost always ends up as four crashes) to make a clean landing. If you nail the landing you get a point and it’s the next players turn.
Current standings are shown in Figure C. As you can see, if Kevin would show up to work, he might not suck so bad at this game. [editor’s note: low blow!]
Justin and Alan are excused because they are the only ones around here who actually do anything. While it’s unclear who will pull away with the victory, it’s pretty obvious we all lose at MS Paint.
