No mention of using them to win free stuff? That’s where most of mine go (outside of work)!

@Jenn@twitter yeah! That’s all I ever did when I had them. Stick them into jars on counters. Never worked though.

@Jenn@twitter I had to stop this after I started getting a bunch more spam. I blame Boston Market.

20% – used to roll roaches for joints/spliffs.

Emergency tooth pick. Inelegant but effective.

Used as a bookmark is a way bigger percentage of my pie. Dropped into fishbowls at Cosi is definitely at least 5%.

When I was at college I used to get business cards printed up every year and hand them out socially. It was a lot of fun, but sometimes awkward when I’d meet someone and they’d say, “We met at a party last week. I have your card. You were pretty drunk.”
