Have you ever wondered where paper clips go?

Posted by Knonie

Lloyd’s bank of London kept track of 100,000 paper clips. Only about 20,000 were used to clip papers together. Of the others, 14,163 were twisted during conversations on the telephone, 19,143 were used as card game chips, 7,200 held clothing together, 5,423 were used to pick teeth or scratch ears, 5,308 cleaned fingernails, 3,916 unplugged tobacco pipes. The remaining 25,000 were swept into the trash after falling on the floor.

So most of the times, we only use less than quarter of the total paper-clips we have, and all the rest are wasted.
