In Michigan, "XXX". Well, not licenses anymore, but other official registries. I was thinking a better question was "What color do they put on driver's licenses for people with no eyes?" since eye color is on the Michigan license, but then I realized people without eyes probably shouldn't be driving, even in Michigan.

Some of those are pretty goofy, but the Thermos one reminded me of one of the concepts that freaked me out as a kid: normal force.

there used to be "b" batteries, as well as "a" (not the current "aa").

they were for use with vacuum tubes.
