15 Things You Didn't Know The Purpose Of!

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 saw a video just like this five years ago and 50 other ones in the wakeOf it. It’s now May 2018 and people are still making the same video over and over again. Also they never explained what the hell I’m supposed to do with the converse lace holes. They just said you can lace them up, But not how to lace them up and how lacing them up a different way helps.

I have found that the best place to store clothes is on the floor. Not only is there a lot more space on the floor than in a dresser or closet, but you can also see all your clothes. You save time by not having to fold things, and you get exercise when you bend over to pick something up. Great way to use all that wasted space. One more special advantage is that your friends won't want to come to your house if your floor is covered with clothes, so you get to go to their houses and eat their snacks instead.

Belts. They were built to smack misbehaving kids but it gradually became a thing to hold pants.
Hannah Pippin
I thought that the converse was for if the bottom of your foot was itchy you could put something in it and itch it

Put a bit of effort into the images... "The half belt was used to get the extra material out of the way" *doesn't show example* "The extra converse holes can be used for other types of lacing" *doesn't show example*

Some fundamental misunderstanding of where a tampon goes and what it does if you think we're all walking around with spares in our pants. If they'd suggested a panty-liner holder I could have waivered a little. Also, how do you sit down with half a dozen cotton wool bullets in your draws? :/
fraziermay
I'm sorry but who the heck is going to stuff a tampon in that pocket??!!
MyTech
The hole isn't there for a straw. It is there because rolling the metal makes a stronger structure so they can use thinner sheets of metal. Chinese takeout boxes are not meant to be unfolded for "plates", folding a piece of card stock is simply a good way to make cheap leak resistant containers without fancy manufacturing techniques like glueing a bunch of precisely cut seams. Etc.

Did you know you can reuse toilet paper a second time by merely shaking it real hard after the first use? When you use a public restroom you'll find a lot of opportunity in the waste can. When no one is watching....I take as much as I can hide in my shirt to reuse at home. I'm thinking about writing a book called, "The Shit People Don't Know".

You cannot hold a female hygiene device in place with the gusset in underwear. Also, men have them as well. Thanks for wasting my time. It's my fault, though, I suppose. I'm more experienced than this. I should have known what was waiting for me.

I dont understand the grocery cart one... What hooks? I dont get it... Someone care to explain? lol Thanks!
G Hall
No, WRONG! The reason a nickel has no ridges on the edge is that it is similar in size to a quarter. So, if you are blind you can easily tell the difference between most coins based on the size and thickness. But, it would be difficult to tell the difference between a nickel and a quarter just by feeling them. So the nickel has no ridges on the edge so that it can be easily differentiated from a quarter by people who are sight impaired.
rivalyncrimson
I can assure you that is not the correct way to use chinese food containers - they're shaped like that to produce a container with no seams or joins on the bottom or sides of the container, preventing it from leaking sauces. The fact that they unfold flat has no meaning, because that's just how cardboard and paperboard boxes are manufactured in the first place.

I bet you weren't aware for the reason for the extra holes on your belt. It turns out those holes were actually put there so you could adjust the length of your belt in case you share your belt with a friend or your cousin. The different holes allow for the belt to be different sized depending on which hole you put the metal Spike through. Some holes make the belt larger some holes make the belt smaller but some holes keep the belt the same size as it was for the first time that you used it which is for your size not your friends or cousins. They will have different sizes but not all the time like my cousin is the same size so we use the same bell hole if we trade or share belt. It's a little known fact that probably just made your day much better.

You are completely wrong about the extra cotton fabric sewn into panties. Perhaps you should have asked a woman old enough to remember why. We do still exist. First a little history. Women used to not wear anything under their skirts. Then bloomers were invented. Bloomers were linen, then later made of cotton. All bloomers were open at the crotch to make toilet trips easier. This also allowed a healthy amount of air flow. By the time panties were invented, another type of fabric was also becoming popular. That fabric was polyester- an oil based synthetic. Now underwear was still produced in cotton and also silk if you were wealthy, but polyester was very popular because it was smooth like silk and clothing fabric slides easily over it. Women soon noticed a problem though. Due to the nature of synthetic fabrics, women who wore polyester panties were increasingly suffering from yeast, bladder, and kidney infections. It was not long after, that panty manufacturers started sewing a cotton liner into all polyester panties. You will never find a synthetic pair without the cotton liner, but you can find natural fiber panties without the extra fabric in the crotch. Jockey makes panties without the liner. I own a few pairs. However, due to the popularity of pants, most cotton undies will still have a bit of extra fabric to reinforce the crotch and protect our lady bits.

Okay you yobany uroda, listen up. *Plumages* are not plumages, they are *hackles* and are *certainly not* pompoms! Those carry the distinction and honour of their regiments with the colours they brandish and should not be so insulted by being compared to a freakin' pompom. Coincidentally, others besides the French used them too, most notably the British you dinks.

I just spent the last 2 hours reading the comments (which are far more entertaining that the video was!) looking for one that mentioned using the panty gusset pocket for a vibrator - there are several. As someone said, many of us came here to see what the pocket was for. They say that more expensive underwear has it sewn up ... I've noticed that sexier panties have an open pocket (and someone noted that Victoria Secret panties don't have it sewn up) ... encouraging the wearer to use it for a pocket rocket or remote controlled vibrator, methinks? Enjoy!

Interesting stuff. Need better photos though. Many of the photos don't illustrate the purpose you're claiming. And that sweater you show when talking about a cardigan is not a cardigan.

they forgot that the stop on a tape measure can move which is why it is fitted with oval holes where the rivets are. the idea is that it is shorter for INSIDE measurements and LONGER for outside measurements by exactly the thickness of the blade stop. I would have thought that is the most important thing to mention.

In China, take-out containers are never like the ones used at Chinese-American restaurants. Restaurants in China use standard styrofoam boxes, never cardboard ones with a wire handle. NEVER.

I'm surprised this hasn't been said before, I use this informative video, to waste my time instead of actually educating myself.
UncleRobbie1963
Chinese food containers aren't designed to turn into plates, they're folded that way to prevent leaking. Before the advent of the microwave oven, these food containers had a steel carrying handle that pierced both sides and held them together securely but were not easy to remove.

Yeah, it might be helpful to actually show an example of what you're talking about. You said the loops in a grocery cart were for hanging bags but you show a cart full of food that is not even in bags!!! Very cheesy and lazily done.
DeaconTaylor
ive never seen a tape measure with a serrated edge. pretty sure the 'straw hole' in a can is just a life hack not the actual purpose. converse holes - well prove it then. sounds like a dumb theory. #5 - what? notebooks have margins to give rats something to eat? .. seriously? never seen a sauce cup in real life. must just be an american thing. noodle boxes are meant to be unfolded for picnics... uh no they're not. dont be a tight arse and just buy picnicware. they just print them flat and fold them into box shape because its cheaper to manufacture. doesnt all underwear have that extra layer at the front? im a guy and mine does.

"What's something that you use in a way that is different that what it is intended for?" I often "borrow" a stick-on sanitary pad [with wings] (unused) from my partner's stash. It helps me buff my leather shoes and other stuff once I stick it on my palm. Absolutely lint-free. And the wings also protect my palm from any stains.
Pouty MacPotatohead
I don't know for sure, but I'm willing to put money on the line that the hole in the tab in cans is to increase structural integrity with least amount of materials used. Much the same with every feature of the can. The tab would probably just double up without it.
