So, after throwing about three picks away in a matter of 3 hours, I was thinking of things I could possibly do with my used picks. Right now, I'm thinking of possibly finding a plastic mold company and seeing if they could make custom tone n volume knobs for me with the picks.

So, pit monkeys, what do you guys do with your used up picks?

You 'use' a pick in an hour?

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

At a glance, I read the topic title as "Used Pickles." I was very disappointed when I read it correctly.

I usually wear down the tip on my picks within 2 weeks, and then I throw them away. Your doing something seriously wrong if your wearing out a pick in one hour.

No, I don't usually use a pick every hour. I just happened to find those specific picks lying around my room, and all had been 'well loved' before I even started playing with them that day. So I just used the last bit that I could from them, they weren't just brand new ones

Yeah, they last me about 2-3 weeks, but as I said, these ones had already been used.

If you were breaking them in an hour, which you aren't, then I'd reccomend using a thicker pick. I hate thin picks.
