A recent post on penny arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com/2006/05/22) inspired me to start a nasty desk contest. I don't think Tycho's desk is that bad, and to prove it, I'm posting my co-worker's desk.

Can you beat this?

Mine would probably win right now.

But since I have at least one shred of dignity I wont post it.

Hopefully I will not be procrastinating tomorrow and will clean if off to set up my new display and mini which are still in the box.:rolleyes:

Two days too late. Two days ago I had to containers growing mold on my desk. :p My desk is still a mess, but minus a few microorganisms.

Sadly, I only clean my desk when my girlfriend is in town, or when I take a photo for the "Post your Mac setup" thread. I would get a photo if my camera wasn't broken now, because it's definitely at its worst. I've moved on to working on the bed from the desk, because it's impossible to use!

I don't remember where I saw it, but there was one picture of a desk I saw where it was all yellow and ash-laden from the guy smoking all the time. That is the nastiest desk I have ever seen.

Lucky Strikes, Gin and Pepcid.Must be someone in Germany. (When my family lived there, our German friends were ALWAYS trying to get us to supply them with Lucky Strikes.)

I don't know...it looks like the desk of a web developer I used to work with. He had a small 8 x 8 office, and he closed the door and smoked all day/night whenever he was in. You couldn't get within five feet without feeling dirty.

That's sick. Is that Booze on the right hand side? (Not that I'm critizing, when I posted my desk a few months back, I had a bottle of Whiskey in the shot).

So this guy has a cigarette ON HIS KEYBOARD, gin and mixer, a pack of Lucky Strikes, and Pepcid... no doubt something he has to take to counteract all of the booze and nicotine he's ingesting. :rolleyes:

Here are some pictures of my desk at university.

I'm home now, and I did a huge cleanup in my room so my desk is a lot better now.

I was wondering the same thing.

cigarettes and ash everywhere = no big deal
alcohol on your desk = no big deal
sodawater = no big deal
But friggin baked potatoes????? Thats just wrong man, just plain wrong.

My desk... and no, I didn't clean up just for this post (okay so maybe I hung up the headset). <sigh>The anal retentive in me won't let the desk be messy.... :o

P.S. Sorry for the blatant display of a Windows screen... :eek:

Yeah, we will destroy you for that. And now I'm going to take a low-res pic of my desk as it is right now. I'm an honest man. And especially messy on friday mornings. This is as messy as it gets:
