Everything has a reason! And the same applies to objects too. It’s colour, size and other details are always there for a particular purpose. Here’s a list of 6 things you probably didn’t even know. So, get ready to be surprised!
#1 Bobble on the hat
I bet you didn’t know what the bobble is for. Well, the first bobble appeared in the 18th century. French marines wore them because during those days ship cabins had very low ceilings, so bobbles were very important to protect sailors from hurting their heads. Later, this was used in army uniforms, its shape and color could tell you which branch of the military a solider belonged to. Now, of course, this is more for decoration and fashion
#2 The hole in the stick
Are you one of those people who think that the hole in the lollipop stick prevents suffocation or you could use it as a whistle after you’ve finished your candy? Well, then you’re wrong. Actually, the hole is designed for the candy not to fall. During the making of the candy when the stick is sunk in the liquid candy, the liquid fills the hole first and once the candy cools down, it fixes the whole candy, making it hard and firm.
#3 Trousers Creases
Why do trousers have them? Well, it happened in the end of the 19th century. Clothes that were made in European factories were sent to other countries. In order to fit as many clothes as possible into the ship’s hold, it was folded, and due to long travel the trousers had severe creases, it was almost impossible to get rid of the creases. So, people accepted this fact, and the trouser creases became fashion!
#4 Lines on tubes
There’s a thinking that the black line is for chemicals and the green line is for organic components in the toothpaste – This is total nonsense! These are simply ‘eye marks’ or ‘colour marks’ printed marks that can be read by light beam sensors and typically identify where product packaging is to be cut or folded as connected units stream through machinery at high speed.
#5 Little pockets in ladies panties
Ever wondered what is it for? Maybe it’s made to slide in a sanitary napkin or to hide tampons? Obviously not! The small pouch is actually made for hygiene – Yes, hygiene! The double thickness allows one to preserve the genital parts of a woman. Since a lot of bacteria forms in this area and underwear that is made of synthetic fabric does not protect the vaginal flora. Wow!
#6 Square on backpack
You probably saw this and said ‘wow, what a cool stylish backpack’. But have you ever wondered what that design really is? Originally, it was useful for camping as you could thread ropes or carbines through the tab or even tie up your shoes to free your arms. You could probably hang something cool for decoration too!
