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.

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.
