Turn Twigs and Office Supplies Into Weapons of Mass Annoyance

We've all been encouraged to reduce, reuse, and recycle to help the environment, but helping Mother Nature can have its own consequences. Case in point: this simple block of wood called the Stix, which is strategically notched to let you reuse sticks or dried-up pens to construct a working elastic gun. Great for conserving our natural resources, but terrible for the poor co-workers caught in the crosshairs.

Assembled from nothing but discarded or unwanted materials and a few elastics, the Stix gun will help balance the guilt you feel from hitting your target by reminding you that in a roundabout way you're helping the environment. Is it a convoluted way to justify being a jerk at work? Probably. But we're sure your co-workers will accept that the good you're doing far outweighs the bad. [Firebox via Coolest Gadgets]
