12 Things You Didn’t Know The Purpose Of ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/vHN6qB For copyright matters please contact us at: miniminter1992.29@gmail.com Have you ever wondered why manufacturers place small plastic discs inside of soda bottle caps? Or why all jeans seem to have randomly placed metal studs? There are so many little details that we overlook when it comes to everyday objects. Sometimes we assume that they have no purpose at all, and that they exist for purely aesthetic reasons. Other times we guess, correctly or otherwise, at what they might be designed to do. More often than not, they do have a specific purpose or use, and it is simply that we are ignorant of this fact. We’d bet that these are 12 things you didn’t know the purpose of; 12. The Stripes on Your Headphone Jack The rings on your headphone jack are neither for decoration nor grip, as some people may assume; they are, in fact, sections of insulation designed to protect the wiring that allows sound to be carried to both headphones. 11. Nail Cuticles If you pay any attention to your nails and hands, you will most likely know what your cuticles are. This hard strip of skin at the bed of your nails may seem to be a useless chance of nature, but in actual fact, they are key to the health of our nails. 10. Notebook Margins Believe it or not, the purpose of the margins in your notebook has nothing to do with getting criticisms from your professor or notes from your editor! Certainly, the margins are now used for noting corrections or making suggestions, but this was not always so. Historically, books and notes were most likely to be damaged by rodents 9. The Plastic Disc Under Your Soda Lid That little blue disc of plastic under your soda cap? It’s not just there to print codes or prize giveaways on; it’s a pressure seal that performs the vital function of keeping the liquid and gas in, and the air around you out. 8. The Raised Bumps on the “F” and “J” Keys Take a look at your keyboard. You may have noticed that the F and J keys have raised dots or bumps. If you spend a lot of time using a computer, you will definitely have noticed, but you may not know what they’re for. 7. The Diamond Shape on Your Backpack Those diamond shapes on your backpacks are also known as lash tabs, lashing squares, or pig snouts! That’s right – they have a name and a reason for being there. Lash tabs are not just included in the design for decoration; they pay homage to a time when backpacks were mostly used by hikers and climbers. 6. The Hole in Your Chupa-Chups Stick There is more than one theory about why the hole at the end of the Chupa-Chups stick exists. Some people say it’s there to counteract a potential choking hazard, others that it’s there for children to whistle through once they finish. The truth is a little more mundane (though close to the first speculation). 5. The Hole in Your Ballpoint Pen It’s common knowledge that the hole in the lid of your ballpoint is to prevent choking should you accidentally swallow it, but what about the hole in the middle of the pen shaft? Have you noticed that before? 4. The Blue and White Erasers Everyone heard that the blue half of these erasers was meant for “rubbing out” ink. Of course, when we tried it, the eraser did little more than smudge the ink and ruin the paper. So, what is that blue half of this eraser for? 3. The Soft Inner Lining of Your Underwear So, you’ve probably noticed that there is a second lining of a sort in your underwear. This secondary lining, made of soft, tissue-like cotton, is called a gusset and is required if underwear is to meet the necessary health standards. 2. The Unexplained Studs on Your Jeans Have you noticed the metal studs that seem to randomly dot the seams of your jeans? Well, they too have a specific purpose and history. When Levi Strauss first began making jeans, they were primarily worn by miners and farmers; manual laborers, in short, were his main consumer base. 1. The Thick Cylinders Found on Electrical Cables The correct name for these nifty little guys is “ferrite core” or “choke”, and they are not just a design feature with a mundane or purely aesthetic purpose; they have a very important, very high-tech function. So, did you know the function of these 12 everyday items, or was this as much of a surprise to you as it was to us?

Way to state the completely obvious there. Should be called "Things that everyone already knows the purpose of" Btw. why did you use the term "oxygen" while discribing the reason for the hole it the pen. The gas that surrounds us is called "air" it is a composite of many different elements, of which oxygen comprises a mere 21%. I guess you guys played a lot of hooky in your school years. Get an education already.

I had no idea about that last one, always wondered why phones have speakers make that noise too, now I know =)
William Sands (2 months ago)
Everyone opened this video because of the thumbnail pic. And about 10 seconds of the video is devoted to that particular pic. And then they leave the question completely unanswered. Sooooo, you don't have an answer for the cotton lining of panties. My guess is a flavor Savor for pantie tea drinkers....or an oder catcher for the sniffers.

Rings on headphones - one for left one for right Nail cuticles - seal to stop bacteria Book margins- to stop rodents from eating your work Plastic in soda lids - keeps drinks fizzy Bumps of keyboards - so you can easily find keys without looking Lash tabs - to secure axes onto backpacks Holes in lollipop sticks - keep the lollipop in place and stop a choking hazard Hole in lids of pens - stop choking Blue eraser- remove marks from colourful paper Extra lining in uderwear- for comfort Studs in jeans- to stop ripping Bumps in leads - to stop noises Your welcome

The hole in the ink pen isn't to let "Oxygen" in. It's there to let air pressure in. Duh.

You didn't actually state the purpose of the extra fabric on panties!! I believe it has two purposes, to act similar to a tampon and absorb ....discharge.... and to block camel toe from showing.

Fun video.  Thanks.  I'm a touch-typist (70wpm with 0 errors) and never realized about the raised bumps.  It was never even mentioned in my typing classes in high school or college.  Weird.

Ok so you don't cut a cuticle. A nail specialist never cuts a cuticle, we do however trim the dead skin that's on the nail. Please don't get the facts twisted.

So it's actually "air" that gets into pen barrels not only oxygen, yeah? And why is there a girl drinking still water from a bottle while the narration insists that bottle seals keep the contents' fizz? Oy.
