Because you're sitting in front the computer, staring at VB thinking "what would be a good thread topic?" "Huh huh, I know.."

Hmm... could it be that you're doing everything listed in the poll... or perhaps you received a phone in a FedEx mailer that rang as soon as you took it out - which scared you into hiding under the desk.

You usually hide from Jehovah's Witnesses.

I chose bc your speakers aren't plugged in. If you had had "because I need to plug something into that darn back usb port" I would've chosen that. Those are the reasons I am usually under my desk at work.

Because work has that effect on you. It makes me want to hide under my desk, too.

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

Ok, here's what I think happened:



An earthquake in Sydney caused Kurm to drop his lipstick. "Crikey!" he thought as he crawled under the tight space to retrieve the tube of 'pretty girly-man red' that only rolled further away from reach. Just then, the earthquake stopped, but a knock came on the door. "We're the authorities from the Jehovah's Witnesses. Open up". Kurm stayed under his desk thinking "Yet one more reason why I need to hide away from all the world". Then, while he was there, under his desk, trying his best to take cover from the evils of the omnidom and the influences of the Meat and Livestock Australia-funded 'Wellbeing Diet', he thought "Bugger this. I'll just re-plug the speakers that came loose during the quake and have done."



And so he plugged in his speakers, regained sound on his computer, and decided to make a poll about his experiences so that we could all feel it for ourselves.

You are probably paying people to vote that, LAS.



I didn't mean to include the lipstick option.....



























































..... it was meant to be eye-liner.

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

Like George, in the tv sitcom, Seinfeld, you had a bed built into your desk. You're just trying to get some sleep while on the job. Either that or you're getting some sleep before you have another several hour long session on VB.

I think it's because all the cool people are under their desks and you're trying to emulate them.

I usually hide under my desk to get away from the world, but then, I think I probably live a less interesting life than Kurm.

Whatever your reason is, you obviously took your keyboard and monitor with you. That or you have longer arms than I thought.

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

Because you wanted to experience the sensation of being in a low-ceilinged space and having to walk bent in half, a la the film, "Being John Malkovich".
