A small, pointy wooden stick normally used for picking at your teeth after a meal can do many other things. Use the humble toothpick to aid you in microwaving your potatoes, marking the end of clear packing tape, applying glue onto sequins and plugging the hole in your garden hose.
And if you are feeling really ambitious and creative, you can gather 100,000 toothpicks and make an elaborate kinetic toothpick sculpture of San Francisco like what this man did in 35 years.
