Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

If you carry headphones with you everywhere you go but can't seem to find a tangle-free wrapping method that works for you, look no further than the duct tape of office supplies, the binder clip.
