Admit it; you too have a junk drawer full of colorful elastic bands that have piled up during the years. And while sure is fun to use them to snap others, rubber bands can help you with other things too. The rubber band was invented in 1845 and was meant to hold papers and envelops together, but its uses have multiplied into untold applications. Nowadays, people use them to relieve anxiety, to keep their books closed or their food fresh. There’s an infinite ways to use them, therefore I’m sure there are still a bunch of uses I never thought about. Oh well.
