There are not many who know that the paperclip was invented by a Norwegian named Johan Vaaler in the year of 1899.

The paperclip, ("binders" in norwegian), is 100 year!

I wonder if anyone is collecting olde p-clips? Is there a way of knowing a p-clips age?

at your home computer type in the web address www.h2g2.com
then click go or whatever it says to send you to that webpage
once there click where it says to click if this is not your e-mail address,
it will have you type in your e-mail address and this is where you type in your work e-mail address.
it will then send you the re-registration form to your office e-mail address.
once you return to your office and are online go to your e-mail and forward that re-registration form to your home computer.
when you get home open it and then do as it says,
when it brings up your correct page save it for easy access and you will then be able to use the same h2g2 name whether at home or at work.
i had to do this as well smiley - smiley

Paperclips are ubiquitous in every office. The advent of the so-called "paperless" office with computers has not occurred, and paperclips will always be in high demand.

But what of recycling used paperclips? God, in my office they are thrown away in droves binding the junk mail together. Or realigning those that are carelessly bent into every imaginable shape during endless meetings?

I wonder if a properly prepared business plan would get me funding to pursue this untapped source of income?
