USB Drive – Most ubiquitous object on the planet.  There are over 23 x 1045 USB drives in circulation to date.  Able to store pictures, a few songs, or important documents, it is estimated that the average human on Earth owns 3,280,000,000,000,000,000 USB drives personally.

Facebook.com – The world’s largest online complaint index.  Launched in 2004 by CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook has rapidly become the most comprehensive index of minuscule gripes.  Users are encouraged to complain about any and all things ranging from the service at a Smokey Bones restaurant to their WiFi signal at a Public Library.  As of 2016, Facebook has over 1.23 billion active complainers.

Gourd – A roundish plant in the Cucurbitaceae family which if you think I’m lending money to your brother, then you are clearly out of yours.

Cup – Small open container which can be used to carry drinks, or pencils, or loose change. Man, the possibilities are pretty much endless if you think about it.  Cups have existed for thousands of years and can hold anything such as: hot coffee, SevenUp, some ice cubes, business cards, marbles, ashes, a collection of screwdrivers, a severed finger, plant fertilizer.  I mean, really!  You can pretty much hold anything in a cup!

Artificial Intelligence – Branch of computer science, which despite all signs pointing to the apocalyptic effect it will have on human life, continues to be a growing field of study.  Even though most people agree that homosapiens will ultimately be rendered obsolete and perhaps enslaved by the hyper-intelligent robot overlords that they themselves created, humans still think figuring out a way to automate a cash register is a good idea.
