5 Everyday Things With Amazing Hidden Secrets. So in this list, I'll be showing you 5 Everyday Things That Have Amazing Secrets
5) Sidewalk Bumps
When you approach a crossing you might have noticed there are bumps on the ground?
I used to believe these bumps were there for added grip.
Say you were in a rush and you were running to cross the road, the bumps can give you better grip to stop in time and not fall into the road.
However turns out my thinking was completely off.
Those bumps originated in Japan in the 60's and are designed to help the visually impaired.
When a blind person feels those bumps they now know they are approaching a road and don't walk into traffic.
4) Tape Measures
Tape measures are so much more than what meets the eye.
For any serious builder or home DIY-ist, using a tape measures is almost a daily thing.
If you look at the end of the tape measure you'll notice a little whole.
This whole is there so you can hook it to a nail or screw and therefor measure with one hand.
Another neat little feature is the serrated edge.
When measuring a material like wood, you can mark a precise point by applying pressure and raking it back and forth.
This will leave a mark and you now know exactly where to cut.
3) Laptop Cable
Every laptop cable seem to have a weighted bulge sticking out of the cable.
This bulge seems to be pointless but it must have a vital role if every cable has them.
Turns out this bulge contains a lump of semi magnetic iron.
This iron absorbs electromagnetic and radio frequency interference and converts them into heat.
2) Ketchup Cups
Go to any fast food place and you get those tiny ketchup cups that can hold barely enough ketchup for a few fries.
Well next time youre at a fast food joint, don't fill up dozens of cups and try balance them back to your table,
Instead use them how they are intended.
The cups actually fan out as they are made with folded paper.
With a few easy tugs the cup will expand and can now hold twice the amount of ketchup.
1) Juice Boxes
We all know that young kids can be a bit clumsy.
Giving them juice boxes is always risky as when they hold them, if they apply too much pressure the juice can pour out and go everywhere.
Next time you have a juice box, notice that on either size there are flaps that fold up.
These flaps serve two purposes.
The first one is you can cut the flap and then easily pour the juice into any cup.
The second is for kids to hold with their hands and therefore less likely to squeeze the box and spill the juice.
