Another week completed and your boss is hounding you with a bunch of last minute projects he thinks need to be done by the end of the day.  Hey!  Why should you have to pick up all the slack because the boss didn’t delegate efficiently during the week?  Time to look busy in your cube with time wasting Opera Gadgets.

If you want something that will be a great laugh  and you can get away with watching video on your computer at work check out Geriatric 1927 … who doesn’t need advice from their elders?

An all week fun time with Opera is setting up your Sim Aquarium.  For some reason this one  reminds me of the Sega Dreamcast game: Seaman.  No I am not sure why.

I am really a sucker for the old school games.  One that reminds me of the old Atari 7800 days is this Breakout type game Operanoid.
