Cool Stuff – Post It Notes

Whenever I have to use a post it I always think of Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, where she claims to have invented post its and everyone knows 3m did.  
Allow to me digress and share a little factoid: Post its were invented by accident when a scientist was trying to invent super strong glue but instead came up with a sticky tac type of glue that could be reused. 
The humble post it is an integral part of office life. Here are my 5 favourite post it related things. 

1. The Post It Pillow

So you wake up every morning but still forget to take that thing to work with you? Well forget no more. Also handy to remind your significant other to do stuff.
2. Better than a piece of string
