THEY CHEATED. >.>

When I see 99 uses, I expect more than 10 items. And Mythbusters totally killed half of the Coke ones.

IMO: Fail.

These ideas went from good to wtf... for example, how can they just say that you can make a mini hovercraft out of CD`s? Well then, why not make a Hubble Telescope out of Saran Wrap. Or generate your own human clone from some Big League Chew.

I used toothpaste to get rid of smells on my hands. Now my hands smell like toothpaste.

I used the paper clip as a bathroom door key. My boss got really mad when I walked in on her.

I used butter to get gum out of my hair. Now I`ve got dogs chasing me.

I used CDs to create a sculpture. Wal-Mart security was not amused.

Thanks for the tips, I-A-B.

I dont see how the chopstic thing would help.
Asian restaraunts around here that give chopsticks do the same thing with a rubberband.
Anyhow if you want to learn how to use chopsticks you shouldnt be using aids anyway.(try picking up ice cubes, thats how i learned)

No explanations how these things actually help other than a few pictures. Useless, except for those with no critical thinking skills.

Some of these I had done before.

Back when I had to use the bus to get to school, I put some fics into text files and read them on my Ipod. It would take, like, three or four files a chapter since it would cut off any file over 6k.

The iPod things were pretty lame. I`m like,

"NAW??!!?! REALLY!!! YOU CAN LISTEN TO AN IPOD IN THE SHOWER WITH A WATERPROOF CASE! WHOA LYK OMG LOLS I MEAN HE!@REFAS~!"

The coca-cola was was interesting, and so was butter and hair.

I sound like I`m on the show Bizarre Foods.

If you couldn`t figure out the many uses of paperclips, you`re probably an uncreative person. I do not recommend creative professions like painting and writing.

Okay, it would definitely be nice to know how to do some of these things.

Like remove a cherry pit with a paper clip or make soy sauce with human hair.
