Can You Identify These Tools?


Has anyone ever tried to insult you by calling you a tool? Surely the extent of your hurt should depend on the kind of tool to which they're referring. You'd need to be able to recognize what it is they are talking about, too. So, to help your social acumen in the face of slights (and just because we thought it would be fun) here's a quiz that challenges you to identify these tools. The better you do, the less likely others will publically mock you. Yes, it truly is that simple. You're welcome.

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Did You Know?

The Phillips-head screwdriver is named after Henry F. Phillips who in 1934 formed the Phillips Screw Company. The businessman from Portland, Oregon refined the design of John P. Thompson for a cross-head screw. Due to Phillips efforts, the screw and the matching screwdriver were adopted by screw makers and automobile companies. General Motors, for instance, used the innovative design on its 1936 Cadillac assembly lines. Within less than a decade of its introduction, the screw had been accepted into widespread manufacturing use. Phillips, due to failing health, retired from manufacturing in 1945, but his name remains permanently screwed into tool history.
