15 Things You Didn't Know The Purpose Of!

  • Am 18 Mai 2018 veröffentlicht
  • 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.

    That pen cap fact is BS, good Ole hoxifire is about to pimp slap you with some actual knowledge. So the throat is a very sensitive area and if something perhaps a pen cap were to get stuck in your wind pipe it assume a foreign object is entering a unwanted area it would contract to the point to where that hole would be entirely useless. So no the hole does not stop suffocation the hole is actually there because if there was no hole it pressurize the ink tube cause ink to leak and make a mess. Seriously where do get these ideas from 😂😆😅

    I always thought that the hole in the tab was for extra grip or if you needed to use something to put in to open it if your fingers were too big therefore you could put something like your keys or maybe even a screwdriver

    the rivets on coins are for blind people the nickel and penny don't have it so they are recognizable and the size difference helps identify and the rivets help identify for quarters and dimes

    Have you ever dropped a silver quarter next to a modern quarter? sounds way different. Quarters made before 1965 were made of silver. Anyone could notice a difference. except the hearing impaired. or audio impaired? hard to keep up with what is politically correct.

    I was told before watching this video, that the ridges were mostly for the visually impaired. The penny and nickel do not have them, dimes and quarters do. who is shaving coins on the available coins now??? And this video did not demonstrate the converse thing or catsup, ketchup, red sauce, whatever you call it. By the way, btw and catsup have red lines under them for spellcheck? In this age, btw should be common, and regionally it's called catsup, ketchup, red sauce, etc. The tab on the soda might be a thing, but it really probably is a multi-purpose design, notice how they are folded metal? increases strength when "popping a tab". Might save on production costs. And just maybe was designed for a straw. but you went with a straw as why it is there. nice. probably will not watch another video.

    Extra lacing holes - Apparently you don't know how to use them either since there are no photos of theme actually being used.
    Pill bottle tops - Yes, they screw in, but I find that they easily get cross-threaded and take several turns to tighten in versus just using the child-proof side and giving them a quarter turn.
    Ketchup Cup - I once showed my friend how you can pull the sides of the ketchup cups to open them up. He said that was clever and proceeded to fill 3 unstretched cups with ketchup, a practice that he still does today.

    The holes in pen tops are not to allow air through should a child swallow one but to stop the top from being swallowed due to the habit that children have of sucking the tops of pens ,the hole breaks the suction action that unfortunately has caused the death of several children as the tops where propelled into their throats choking them.
