What do you do to pass the time when you’re on a 16-hour flight? Most people sleep, while others read books or magazines. Some watch movies or TV shows, and there are those who spend their time chatting up the passenger beside them or trying to make eye contact with someone a few aisles down.
Some drivers are horrible parkers. Some are careless, there are others go out of their way to be rude, while some just can’t help it. Regardless of which kind of bad parker they are, they’re still bad parkers all the same.
One of inventor Steve Hoefer’s favorite creations is his knock-activated lock: a lock that only opens if you enter the correct knock sequence. Steve says he’s built the lock a dozen times.

For some, it was the N’Sync reunion at the VMAs and the invention of cronuts, which gained traction so fast and quickly became one of the most popular snack-slash-breakfast foods, with people lining up for hours to get a bite of one.
How does one go about with making the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich? What about the perfect sundae or a banana split? These are presumably some of the most commonly consumed snacks and treats in the country, so most people really don’t need any directions on how to make them.
Have you tried sharing an umbrella with someone who’s shorter than you? It’s fine if you’re the one holding it, but if the other person is holding it, then you might feel a couple of bumps as the frame scrapes against your head, because your companion might be holding it a wee bit low.
How would you like to have your favorite memories for snacks? You can even skewer them or heat them up to make some extra memorable smores. Sounds pretty impossible, but as long as that moment is captured and posted on Instagram, then Boomf can make it happen.
Every year, trash cans all around the world overflow with discarded gift wrap and packaging on Christmas morning. Some people take the time to unwrap their presents carefully on Christmas eve so the paper can be recycled, but the majority don’t have the patience (or simply don’t care enough) to do so.
You might not be able to write for a living for one reason or another, even if you wanted to, but that doesn’t mean you should stop writing. Let off some steam, talk about your dreams, share funny anecdotes – there are so many things you can do with words.

Now you can take things one step further by making the wrapping paper itself just as special, with PicPaperie’s customized wrapping paper.
