I've always heard that bridge covers are just for show but i saw i guy who said he put paper in his for a muted sound. Any ideas on uses for a bridge cover other than looks.

There are more reliable ways to mute your strings than shoving paper into a bridge cover.

I've seen people rest their palm on a neck pickup cover but bridge covers have always seemed to be just for show.

Back in the days when they didn't pot the pickups they were supposed to reduce the hum come from the electromagnetic interference of the wiring back then.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!
Nowadays bridge covers are there mostly to look good. I've heard of people putting foam underneath the cover and on top of the strings as a mute, rather then the usual foam under the strings at the bridge.
