The holes in your kitchen utensils
Every single kitchen utensil you have in your cupboard has holes in it. Except for the cutlery, though some of them do. Most people use it to hang them conveniently around the kitchen, but what if we told you that it is not their only purpose?
Those holes are designed to hold other kitchens utensils. For example, the next time you are heating your spaghetti sauce with a wooden ladle, try placing it on the hole of the panhandle. That way, you won’t dirty your kitchen up, and the sauce on the spoon will drip right back to the pan.
The hole on the pen
Speaking of holes, you might have noticed that some of your pens have a tiny hole in the lid. The reason is very simple. It will allow air to pass through in case someone accidentally swallows it. Most people nibble on their pens during class, and this has happened before.
The pompoms on beanies
You might have purchased a nice, cute beanie for the coming winter, and if it has a lovely pompom on it, the better. However, this little piece of fluffy adorableness is not just for decorative purposes. In fact, it was created initially for French Sailors.
Apparently, some of them used to hit their head when the ceiling of the boat was too low, and someone came up with this solution. It was later used for armies and trickled down to the fashion industry. We just love history!
The marks on the F and J keys
After all these years of using a computer, some people still have no idea why there are tiny marks on some of their keyboard’s keys. Well, if you spend a lot of time at the computer, your brain probably learned the placement of the letters without having to see them.
However, these ridges are used so that you remember where to place your fingers first. As if it was a starting point. Furthermore, if you are one of those people that want to learn the “proper” way of typing, they are very useful.
