The Purpose of Everyday Things – That You Hadn’t Considered!

Editorial Credit: emka74 /

There’s a number of features on things that you use every day that you probably never even noticed. They have characteristics that most of us pass off like:

* Small holes
* Indentations
* Bumps

It is the time we start to learn how to use different stuff and this is only going to happen with the right hacks. Below we shared some of them and you are going to thank me after reading this post.

1. The hole at the end is not actually there to keep the pen from drying out. The hole is to lower the risk of suffocation if a small child (nervous adult) choked on the cap.


2. Ever wonder why all of your pots have holes at the end of the handle? Not only to hang them, but to hold that messy spoon while you’re cooking up a storm.


3. The disc maintains the liquid and carbonation, without it, soda would go flat quickly.


4. The reason why some lids have little spikes in them is because  you can get through those tiny protective foils easier, just unscrew the lid, flip it, and push on through.


5. Why are those little bumps protruding out of only the ‘F’ and ‘J’ keys on a keyboard? In 10-finger typing, these bumps indicate where your index fingers rest and help you find your way back to the home position without having to glance down from the screen. Interesting!


6. The little wings on an Apple power cable stand up so you can wrap the thinner part of the cable around the wings and secure it from unraveling. Smart, huh?
