5 Minutes to Kill Yourself
An amusing new flash game really "takes a stab" at the cubicle world. Just read this description: "Stan is in hell. He lives the day-in, day-out workaday life of a cube jockey. A last-minute meeting request pushes him over the edge. As Stan, you wander the office space finding ingenious ways to hurt him until Stan’s health is completely drained. He has but five minutes—if he can’t do it by then, he’s doomed to sit through yet another boring meeting. You’re Stan’s only hope."

Must Watch: Signs
[caption id="attachment_983" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Signs - directed by Patrick Hughes"][/caption] "Signs" is a must-watch video for all of you office goers. It's a short film about your average Joe Cubicle, and his unique communication with the girl next door. Did I mention its a 2009 Cannes Lions winner?

You won't be disappointed.
