Inbox Victory: photos of people who've emptied their inboxes

The Inbox Victory page collects photos of people pointing at their empty email inboxes, grinning madly before the next flood of emails pours in.

Have you ever been in the situation where you spend days trying answer all of your email only to accomplish your goal and have no one to share in your victory? All you want is a high five, a pat on the back, and a "job well done soldier!", and yet most likely all you are left with is an empty room and a cold cup of coffee.

2) Open up your webcam software and take a screenshot of yourself profiling in front of your defeated foe (See examples below)…
