Today was National Paperclip Day. The paperclip that we are all familiar with was first put into production in the 1870s, and it really hasn't changed very much since then. According to The Atlantic, Americans bought about 11 billion paperclips in 2011. That's about 35 paperclips for every person.

With that, let's end your day with the News 2 Know.
