Loafer's Polaroid Monitor Screen

To others your screen is full of work. Only you can see what's really there.

It looks like a radiation screen for your computer monitor.

It is.

But it uses polaroid optics in such a way that only when directly in front can you see through it to the pornsites youre surfing while at the office.

From over your shoulder your boss sees work material. This really is work material but it is a 10-second animated screen-capture.

Thus, you can loaf all you like, or until the contents of your in-tray topple & crush you.

       There's nothing stopping your boss remotely viewing your screen or monitoring your web traffic though. Assuming your boss is clueful enough, that is.

       I would say he is the boss and what was that quote about rising to levels of incompetence ....
