These are the little cotton swabs you use to clean the wax out of your ears. Unless you read the directions on the back of the box, in which case they’re the little cotton swabs you use to do literally everything else in the world that isn’t cleaning the wax out of your ears, but the only people who’ve ever read the directions on the box are people who forgot to bring their phones to the toilet and didn’t have anything else to read, and I don’t think anyone has forgotten to bring their phones anywhere in the last five years. 3.0/5

There’s a pretty compelling theory that people couldn’t see blue, or at least didn’t recognize it as not a shade of some other color, until they discovered a way to make blue dye. If you go back to The Odyssey, for example, the sea is referred to as “wine dark.” This is not an accurate representation of the sea, but it is pretty dead on as a description of blues music, so who knows? It looks good on Superman, I guess. 3.0/5
