Bored at work ?, pick a shape/year and put that printer at work to good use and make your boss a 12 sided calendar.

Bored at work, yes.

But not that bored.

DUAL USE: It's ALSO a 12-sided die. Next time my boss taps my shoulder, I'll just roll back the calendar and yell "Save! Assignment deflected!"

I like it. But I'm too lazy. Plus I'm at home now.

That's pretty cool. I made one for my wife. She likes. We're geeky that way.

Client calling.

'So you want an appointment - hmmm - let me roll my calendar dice to see what month ...'

Brilliant link, thanks!

That's awesome. I'm totally going to hang a few of those babies from my ceiling.

doug_nelso: Saving throws are done on a d20, not a d12.

It is however, the perfect damage dice for a Greataxe (but only against medium sized monsters).

MetaFilter is totally going to get me fired.

Just did it, it looks nice, and I did it on the super thick paper he says doesn't work (it did, although it was tough and looks a little... uhh... I'm not being PC here... retarded).

If you download the Postscript file, you can edit it to set whichever dates you want to be highlighted (bold red, or blue bordered).

Mine printed with odd symbols instead of months.

Cool. That'll freak out the coworkers even more.

I tried the rhombic one, and it must not have centered right on my printer - the folds cut off the calendar a bit.

OK. I feel less stupid now. The site is in Norway and the rhombic dodecahedron is meant to be printed on A4 paper. No wonder it didn't work for me.

Now, there is the question ... do I want to figure out how to fix the proportions...?
