This is an awesome prank. What you see here is the Windows desktop that Redditor Croft1342 was greeted with after having a friend repair his computer. Jigsaw from the Saw movies is such a jerk. Only one of those Chrome icons is actually Chrome.
I think I have found the perfect weapons for the people in Sharknado 3 to use to fight off the toothy aquatic hoards. Check out these sculptures, they look like sharks with machine gun parts protruding from their bodies.

Before I used the Inbox Zero process, I was often interrupted by the vast quantity of emails that anyone in tech receives.
