PROTECTION @ NIGHT!!!!
LifePaint is invisible when you spray it onto, say, your bike. But when a car comes roaring by at night, your bike is suddenly one giant reflector making you easier to see. Not just for bikes -- LifePaint can also be sprayed on your clothes or even your dog's collar. LifePaint is washable, which may mean you don't want to ride in the dark in a rainstorm. Without washing, it lasts about 10 days. (Newser)
THE HISTORY OF THE CORKSCREW!!!!
Corkscrews Were Military Tools for Removing Bullets
The Original Use: Actually, that's not a corkscrew. It's a gun worm, one of the few products that sound like a video game enemy. There was a time when guns were, to put it bluntly, worth slightly less than their weight in manure. Bullets got stuck in muskets all the time, which was a problem because if your bullet got stuck it meant you were unable to fire until it was free, and someone was probably shooting back at you. The gun worm was developed to remove those stuck bullets and other blockages, and were therefore essential in stopping you from getting killed.
