  1. Met Miles Sullivan back in the 90’s, still have the demo bird he gave me somewhere. Dude was super cool and answered a ton of ridiculous middle schooler questions like a champ.

  2. I had this exact bird on my desk at work and it set the motion sensor arm off after works few times, police showed up, it was a whole fiasco. I don’t work there any more.

  3. or or try programing it yourself.
    some sensors are programmable so you can manually turn it off or have it turn off 30 minutes after it senses motion, of course their is other options in programming your device, but for what you need, I gave you the possibility of asking your maintenance guy or electrician. All you have to do is ask, you tard.

  4. Sort of related, my work pc locks after 10 minutes of inactivity and requires a long ass password to get back in. So I wrote a program that moves my mouse cursor 1 pixel ever 9 minutes and 59 seconds. It isn’t noticeable even if you are using the mouse when it goes off.

  5. At my workplace the lights automatically turn off in the bathroom. The sensor is on the other side of the stall so I have to pick up the plunger and wave it like a wand. One of the new staff from Uganda came in when I was waving the plunger last week. He knew it was me. Haven’t made eye contact since.

  6. One of my workplaces had motion sensor lights in the toilets. If you spent too long in a stall you’d soon know about it since the lights would go out, leaving you in complete darkness with your pants at your ankles and the only way to get the lights back on was to hope someone came in or, failing that, risk stepping out the stall and wave at the sensor.

  7. Remember this thing from movies, they used it as a delayed timer thing so they got out of the building before it started the fire (when the tip hit the ignition). The explosion lead to a scarred hero researching artifical skin, but the one he created melted after just an hour.

  8. my friend in the lab needs light levels to stay the same when hes away, but has a similar problem so he got a rotating arm and put a lab coat on it so a giant coat is swinging around.

  9. This is a great idea – we have these lights too.

    I remember my second week into the job, I walked by our accounting manager’s office and noticed her flailing her arms like the secret signal from Team America. I didn’t understand what was going on at the time but found it hilarious. Later on I learned that her motion sensor wasn’t in top working condition so she had to perform this maneuver many times daily.

  10. You should be able to adjust the sensitivity and delay time of the sensor so you don’t have to do this. A lot of times they are installed without adjusting the factory settings, which may not be ideal for the particular application.
