Found this stress ball quite interesting, and decided to work with it.
I wanted to deliver an eco-friendly message. I think this picture is the best of the many attempts I've done. The message is quite clear: Human Beings are loading the world everyday. The world is complying at the moment, but how long will it last?
To me, the posture of the hand also suggests somebody holding a grenade, ready to explode. It emphasizes the idea of threat...
Finally, the title is a play on words (I like that), and I think it suits well the picture.

Does GBWN stand for anything?
I like the composition used, with the wrist starting at the lower left corner and moving into the photo. Good use of non-distracting background.

I am going to say this does meet the challenge. Other may not as the sphere shape is now um...a blob. Still, I think one of the problems with using a globe in this challenge is making it stand out and squishing it does that.
