Aluminum Foil a.k.a. Tin Foil

What on Earth would we do without aluminum foil? (Also known as tin foil or simply foil.) It covers a plate of cookies, works great to cover pans in the oven, wrap veggies to cook on the grill or over an open camp fire, and keeps gum fresh. But all of those things are obvious uses for foil.

How on Earth would we make our awesome alien men or a model solar system for grade school projects? Would we ever set goals in life if we didn't decide one day to make a foil ball and continue to search for pieces of aluminum foil to make it grow bigger and bigger?

I don't think I would be where I am today without tin foil. Perhaps we should get together and send tin foil to poverty stricken countries so they can enjoy it as much as I do.
