15 Things You Didn't Know The Purpose Of!

  • Published on May 18, 2018
  • Top things you didn’t know the purpose of! These are the everyday items and things you didn’t know the use for!

    #14. “Pen Cap”-- You have definitely noticed the tiny hole in the top of a cap and may have used it to try and make a whistle or pretended it was a tiny spyglass. Most people believe this hole has something to do with preventing a pen from drying-out but this is not the case. The hole in the pen cap actually serves as a safety feature. In the event that a small child swallows one, the hole allows air to pass through and reduces the risk of suffocation.

    #13. “Measuring Tape Tools”-- The modern measuring tape machine is a handy invention that most construction workers and contractors can’t live without, but even some of the most skilled workers might not know it has two incredible yet simple features. First there is the serrated edge on the metal end of the tape. This was put into the design so that if you desired you could put a minor scratch or indentation into the surface you are measuring, in order to give you a marker to make further measurements or designs off of. The other feature is right next to the serrated edge. You may have noticed the small hole that is commonly located in the metal tip. So what’s the purpose of this? Well this is so that if you are measuring something from a point where a nail or screw is you can hook the tape onto the nail and hold the tape in place.

    #12. “The Quarter’s Edge”-- You probably have spied the hundreds of tiny grooves that mark the outside edge of a quarter but not thought twice about it having a purpose. But these tiny ridges actually once served an important function and no it’s not just so magician’s can get a better grip during coin tricks. Up until recently, historically speaking, the cost of the metals in a coin reflected the coins value so many people took to shaving the edges off of the coins and then used the rest of the coin to purchase items as if the coin still had full value. They would then save up their shavings and melted them together to create new coins or just sell the chunks. In order to combat this, coin minters started putting these ridges on their coins so that retailers could tell whether the coins had been shaved. This practice, though not necessary today, is carried on for the sake of tradition and aesthetic. So why don’t nickels have them? Because no one cares about nickels.

    I came for the gusset and it's purpose is for normal excretions. Tampons are disgusting and women know to use diva cups. Sorry, but you are wrong. That piece of fabric is just for protection against normal fluids that happen.

    The title ends with a preposition. Just came here to point that out. Not watching the video, they're obviously idiots.

  • Dr Spunky the Ioniser PhD.

    Half of these are the exact opposite of the intended purpose - they show every previous misconception already corrected in earlier videos, and turned them back into fallacies.
    Watch any other vid like this one and hear the exact opposite reasons for why “...you probably thought” I’d actually the intended reason.

    i was wondering S you sprayed the contents on the pan... why you didnt tell what the product was... perhaps some people would stop watching because of the caustic components of EASY OFF.? So I watched to the end to just find out then I also had concerns that you did not use gloves while scouring... my go to has always been the S.O.S. BRAND OF STEEL WOOL PADS.. I have been a homemaker. For more than 50 years!! My pans are cleaned after every use which avoids any burned on debris ..they are just like new after many years ... just takes a little elbow grease each time , rather than being lazy?

    This video suffers from not always showing the secondary image that clarifies the explanation for a special feature. Such as: extra holes in a Converse shoe. Or the expanded ketchup cup. The explanation for the margin on a sheet of paper sounds ridiculous. Why would a mouse choose to nibble on that side of the paper over the other three?

    actually... nickels do not have the ridges, to make it easier to distinguish them from quarters by feel. just like lincoln facing opposite of the other presidents is NOT a tribute to "him being an outcast, or exceptional" (variations differ depending on who is spinning the story) - it is to designate that particular coin by feel (ie, the penny is the only one with a president facing that direction.) not everyone uses their 'eyes' to tell coins apart. size, ridges/no ridges, weight, texture, differences of the raised images on the front and back, are all used by those who use 'feel' to distinguish between denominations.
    and no, i'm not just meaning people who are 'blind'... these features were initially added for bank money counters, who can't waste the time 'looking down' to stop their counts. if you examine your dollar bills, you will see similar 'feel' marks, that counters use to distinguish between a $5 and a $50. this is how even electronic counters work to count 100 bill/coin stacks of currency in a matter of seconds, and still able to toss out wrong denominations without a miss.

    "Nobody cares about nickels." Lol! True!
    In Iceland, there are these birds called arctic terns who are famous for dive bombing people. I experienced this firsthand while I was wearing a hat with a pom pom. They thought the pom pom was interesting and would dive bomb me, almost nabbing my hat in the process.

    You are wrong about the coins. Quarters are similar in size to a nickel. Dimes are similar in size to pennies. Quarters and dimes have grooves so the blind can tell the difference between nickles and pennies respectively.
