15 Things You Didn't Know The Purpose Of!

Published on May 18, 2018 22,414,857 views

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.

On top of that, wouldn't it have been 'UR', in that context?

  • El Rojo Grande
    El Rojo Grande 3 weeks ago (edited) He meant it provides a surface more suitable for the adhesive on pads to stick too. When gluing a really smooth surface you rough it up so that the bond formed is stronger. Same principle with really smooth fabrics and pads. It provides a rough surface that helps prevent movement and detachment. Its also a stronger fabric that wont be damaged by the repeated removal like more delicate fabrics would over time. Thats why it doesn't matter if both sides are stitched or not. Its simply a cosmetic difference cheaper brands dont care about because it still fills the same role just fine.
  • R'hyll-Ann Ffiain
    R'hyll-Ann Ffiain 4 weeks ago A long time ago, my mother told me something about putting something in that pocket, but for freshness. A perfumed or powdered cloth, perhaps? Something that might irritate if it's directly on the skin? It was literally in the 60s when she told me this. I'm having trouble remembering the details, but it was ultimately for freshness.

  • Fiona Cahill
    Fiona Cahill 2 months ago It's not to hold hygiene products ( My family were clothing manufacturers) what rubbish! 😁... it's just extra material sewn in the gusset area , because obviously it is a delicate place where we need more strength, absorbency and softer fabric . It needs to be easy to wash though for hygiene purposes considering its position , for this reason it is often left open , pocketed for more easy rinsing of a more frequently, less expensive underwear , that may be worn more regularly and therefore washed in bulk in a machine. We usually take better care of our more expensive lingerie eh girls! 😘 I personally hand wash my good stuff. .

  • William Branham
    William Branham 2 weeks ago Milla: my observations and thoughts. I checked a beer can and a soda can. The tabs looked identical in every way. I checked a sardine can and the tab is much larger in all dimensions.. The hole is larger than the soda/beer can. I think the tabs are made by one of a few manufacturers for specific purposes. I think the hole is there to reduce the amount of aluminum, to make it easy to hold onto the tab. and to stiffen the tab so it won't bend under force. If someone has a problem pulling the tab, a hand held tool could be used and placed in the hole, then lifted. Perhaps an old style beer can punch with the triangular end could be placed under the tab and lifted as a fulcrum. Who knows if the hole is for a straw? I think a lot of engineering design went into the tab. As far as the sardine can is concerned, the tab hole is much larger but not large enough to suck a sardine through a straw.

The hole on a drinks can is not needed to open the can and it would not save on on the cost of the metal used as the hole would be punch out and the scrap value would be less than the cost of storage and collection for recycling. And to prove that the hole is for a straw coca cola has it on their website.

    Jesse Dover 10 months ago Do you really need something to hold a straw in a tiny can hole???? That hole is made to strengthen the aluminum, so the tab doesn't bend when you pull it up. They curve the aluminum around itself like a tube to make it stronger. (The I-beam effect)💪🏼

  • Peter Griffin
    Peter Griffin 10 months ago (edited) Not only that but when the straw is in the can it stands up just fine on its own without the tab. I think the hole in the tab not only adds grip but saves on material cost... think about how much material is saved when millions upon millions of cans are produced. Has nothing to do with being a straw holder, but if the shoe fits wear it.

But in 1933 that all changed and gold coins were no longer made or circulated as currency. I've seen gold coins that were quite warn, just like the old silver coins we've all seen. How did those gold coins get so warn? Did collectors carry them in the pockets and rub them to prove they were stupid?

    John Minagro 1 week ago @Kyle Spafford / You're right about them shaving silver, I'm sure that was done. But you don't mean to say that all the gold coins made in the US were only made for collectors do you? Until 1933 gold coins circulated as actual currency in the US. Why did they stop making gold coins in the US? The gold was worth more than the printed value of the currency. However, they started minting gold coins again in 1986 and Have made them pretty much ever since, but these are NOT considered currency and are indeed made for collectors and more often for investors.

  • Catubrannos
    Catubrannos 3 weeks ago @I am not funny Coins are different sizes because traditionally their value was the actual value of the metal in them. So a silver quarter dollar had a quarter of the silver as a silver dollar. Therefore it was a quarter of the size. How do blind people cope with paying by card though? Seems it would be easy to rip them off if the shop person was dishonest.
