your shoelace that keeps it from unraveling. That's an aglet. Not many people know that's the name of it. For a long time I used to just call it 'the piece of plastic at the end of my shoelace' like everyone else.
However, thanks to one of my favorite cartoons, Phineas and Ferb, I know the proper name of it.
And now you know too (if you didn't before).
