Almost 9,000 teams registered to participate in DARPA's Shredder Challenge. Thirty-three days after the challenge was announced, one small San Francisco-based team correctly reconstructed each of the five challenge documents and solved their associated puzzles. The ‘All Your Shreds Are Belong to U.S.’ team, which won the $50,000 prize, used custom-coded, computer-vision algorithms to suggest fragment pairings to human assemblers for verification. In total, the winning team spent nearly 600 man-hours developing algorithms and piecing together documents that were shredded into more than 10,000 pieces. So let's take our own challenge. How long will it take you to piece together a shredded Morty, the Fellowes Bulldog?

How many times can you spin without your feet touching the floor? True champions will launch themselves with a Fellowes foot support.
Gold Medalist Ned from Accounting achieved 5 spins! "I used the Fellowes Foot Rocker to build momentum for an optimal launch."
Silver Medalist Beth from Administration achieved a dizzying 2.4 spins. "I chose a classic approach with the Fellowes Standard Foot Rest. I may be old school, but it pays off."
Bronze Medalist Gus from Sales accomplished a respectable 1.2. I stand by the belief that the factor of temperature impacts the spin. I always use the Climate Control Footrest. I want to thank everyone who has supported my dream."
