    1 The Punt Under Wine Bottles

    The dimple under wine bottles known as Punt are not just there for decoration purposes, it is actually there to help the wine sparkle while in storage. Had it not been because of the punt under wine bottles, the bottle will exert pressure from the wine and explode.

    2 The Blue Side Of An Eraser

    You remember those erasers we used back in school which had one side to be blue and the other to be red? Back in school, we were told the blue is meant for erasing pen writings, most of us tried it and it obviously didn’t work, we ended up tearing our books. This is because the blue side is not meant for that, it is actually meant for erasing pencil writings on hard surfaces while the red side was meant for erasing pencil writings on soft surfaces. Now you have it, you can teach it to your children so they don’t repeat your mistake.

    3 The Bump At The End Of A Laptop Cable

    The bump at the end of your laptop cable known as ferrite beads is not there to distract you or mess up your day. It is not just there for fun but serves a good purpose. It is there to prevent interference in the cable.

    4 The Hole In Airplane Windows

    If you’ve flown on a plane before and sat close to the window, you will notice there is a small hole in the plastic glass covering the windows. That hole is meant to allow air to flow into the plane and also to regulate the pressure in the plane.

    5 Why Men & Women’s Button Are Placed On Opposite Sides;

    Apparently, buttons date back to the 1930s. By then, buttons were considered a luxurious fashion item and only the rich could afford them fashionable pieces. At that time, affluent ladies had maids who dressed them and that is why the buttons of the ladies shirts or clothes were put on the left so that the maids can quickly and easily button their madams with the assumption that a majority of the people are right-handed. Men however, mostly dressed themselves and that is why the buttons were put on the right side.
    While this is the most common theory out there, others suggest that the male clothes button were put on the right side so that they can easily and quickly remove their swords when at war. Whatever the case, it still works these days since most men like to UnCloth their ladies when things are about to heat up in the bedroom.*wink* :yes:
