Why the hell do staplers have an adjustable staple pad?
I mean, who uses the other side? You can turn it around to make the staple legs bend outward instead of inward like a normal stapler....but why?
Somebody tell me!
It's there to justify the $20 price tag.

Dell Studio 17 | Intel Core i7-720QM (1.6GHz) | 6GB DDR3 1066MHz | 1GHz ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650
Intel P4-C 3.0GHz | ECS 865PE-A | 3x512MB PC3200 | 128MB PNY GeForce 6600GT
I think the outside bend works better on thicker stacks of paper maybe?

According to someone on the internet:
The pinning function is a carryover from the time before staple removers. It makes the staple form a relatively straight form. You can staple two pieces of paper together then pull out the staple. Good for temporary fastening, it's kind of a paperclip competitor. You can also use it when sewing. Instead of using pins, you just staple.
pshh! sounds like an old wives tale...everyone knows that the pad looks like a face. this is so you can make robot sounds when you staple. and when you turn the pad around, you can scream "my eyes, you're stapling my eyes!" and freak everyone out in the office.Originally Posted by psycho-
