13 Mysterious Details on Everyday Objects Explained

We’re so used to seeing certain everyday objects that we often ignore their little but important details. Yet, some of the most ingenious ideas are often hidden right in plain sight. If you look closely at a tram's overhead lines, you'll see that its contact wires zigzag back and forth instead of going in a straight line. As the tram moves, the arm-like structure called a pantograph attached to its roof slides along the wire, and it wears down evenly. In a standard 52-deck of cards, the King of Hearts looks kind of strange. Some historians argue that the King of Hearts represents Ajax the Great while the Queen of Hearts is Helen of Troy, the most beautiful woman in the world. Ajax was one Helen’s admirers, but when she refused him, he chose to commit suicide by stabbing himself with his own sword. Have you ever noticed how many spikes are in the crown of the Statue of Liberty, and do you know what they represent? There are seven of them, and they represent the seven seas and seven continents of the world. Is your first thought when playing video game consoles to eat the cartridges? Well, apparently that’s what the manufacturers of the cartridges for the Nintendo Switch thought when they decided to coat them with a bitter-tasting non-toxic solution. Most people assume that the tiny hole on the tip of a pen cap is there to even out the pressure so that the pen doesn’t leak. In fact, it’s to save a person who might accidentally swallow the cap and choke on it. Their airway won't be completely obstructed. w:Period-after-opening symbol on a bottle of mouthwash: By I, Trounce, CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=2389837 Animation is created by Bright Side.

To wear it down evenly, the wire isn’t installed strictly along the tram's straight path but in a zigzag instead. -There are 3 theories explaining why the King of Hearts is the only king who appears to be sticking his sword straight into his head. -When the one-, two-, five-, ten-, twenty-, and fifty-pence pieces are laid out together, they form The Royal Coat of Arms of the UK. -To find out how long you can safely use your makeup for, look for the little open jar icon called the PAO (Period After Opening). -The Statue of Liberty has seven spikes in her crown, and they represent the seven seas and seven continents of the world. -Book pages are often printed on large sheets of paper rather than on small individual ones. And if there isn't enough content to fill these sheets, there will be blank pages. -It turns out that each stripe in the toothpaste has different ingredients and purposes: the white part helps whiten your teeth and remove plaque, the blue (or green) gel has antimicrobial and breath-freshening effects. The red part contains crucial elements for healthy gums. -The bitter taste of the cartridges for the Nintendo Switch is meant to make children spit out the cartridge in disgust. -The numbers in the upper right corner of Heinz packets indicate which filling line the packet was filled on. - If a person accidentally swallows the ballpoint pen cap and chokes on it, their airway won't be completely obstructed thank to the little hole in it. -The little bumps on the “F” and “J” on the keyboard help experienced typists that can do their work without looking at the keyboard find “home keys” where the index fingers rest. -Indentations on the bottom of wine and champagne bottles are there to prevent because the bottom and sides of the bottle from cracking when the bottle is being corked. -Tiny holes in airplane windows help balance out the air pressure and prevent the windows from fogging up.

10 Facts About Our Planet You Didn't Learn In School

We seem to think we know pretty much all there is to know about our Earth that nothing can surprise us at this point. You’ll be amazed when you find out how much you have yet to learn about our home planet: let’s start with 10 little-known earthly facts. You might know that it’s called “the blue planet”, but did you know that scientists say Earth was originally a different color? Or that the Moon isn’t Earth’s only satellite? The magnetic field is vital for Earth because it protects the planet from the impact of solar winds. We think of our planet’s magnetic field as something constant and stable, but the truth is that it’s changing. James Ross, an explorer and British naval officer, pinpointed the northern magnetic pole for the first time in 1831. In 1904, Roald Amundsen, a polar regions explorer from Norway, reached the north magnetic pole again and was surprised to find that it had shifted 31 miles since Ross's discovery. Earth, despite common belief, isn't perfectly round. It’s more like a squashed sphere. So its mass is irregular and differs in various places, which causes “wobbles” of gravity in different areas of the planet. A smaller celestial body about 750 miles wide orbited Earth like a second moon. It most likely crashed into our main satellite later on. Scientists also don't rule out the probability that one day Earth will get another satellite. If all the gold found inside the Earth could be extracted, it would be enough to cover the entire surface of the planet in a 2-foot layer of gold. And if we gave everyone an equal piece, each one of Earth’s inhabitants would get 9 pounds of this treasure. Magma lurking below the surface of crater lakes emits carbon dioxide into the waters of the lakes. This carbon dioxide builds up in a thick layer at the bottom of the lakes until pressure gives way, and it’s released in an explosion. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS The Moon is probably a chunk of the Earth. 0:40 The Earth’s magnetic field is changing. 1:21 Gravity isn’t the same everywhere on the planet. 2:53 Earth had and still might have one more moon. 4:09 There are “moonquakes” on the Moon. 5:13 Our planet is covered in gold. 5:54 Earth used to be purple. 6:39 The tallest mountain on the planet isn’t what you think. 7:18 Earth has exploding lakes. 8:22 Earth is home to the most powerful volcanic eruption ever. 9:15 SUMMARY -About 4 billion years ago, a gigantic space rock the size of Mars collided with our planet. As a result, a huge chunk of the Earth broke away and later became our satellite, the Moon. -Researchers say that since the 19th century, the northern magnetic pole has shifted about 685 miles, moving northwestward across the Canadian Arctic. -One of the gravitational anomalies is found in Canada’s Hudson Bay, where gravity is much weaker than anywhere else on the planet. -Some scientists believe that our planet used to have an additional satellite that crashed into our main satellite later on. -Earthquakes on the Moon are much deeper and closer to the center of our satellite, about halfway between the surface and the core. -About 20 million tons of gold can be found inside our very own planet and in the seas. -Dr. Shil DasSarma, a microbial geneticist from the University of Maryland, thinks that ancient microbes probably didn’t use chlorophyll but other molecules to process sunlight and our planet used to be purple. -If measured from the very bottom on the ocean floor to the peak, Mauna Kea is 33,000 feet tall, making it, technically, the tallest mountain on the planet. -Nyos, Monoun, and Kivu are crater lakes in Africa that are located over volcanic earth. -The most powerful eruption ever recorded happened in April 1815 in Indonesia. It was ranked a 7 (or “super-colossal”) on the Volcanic Explosivity Index.

What do you know about ur planet? Many things seem to have existed forever, and certain well-known people are associated with a specific period of time. But have you ever really sat down and considered the relationship between different events in correlation with each other? You’d be surprised how your perception of time really fools you!

By the way, we’ve hidden 3 tiny light bulbs in this video. Can you find them all? If you’re the first one to find them and write the time they appear in the comments, you will get a mention from us in one of our next videos! Good luck, and let’s begin!

TIMESTAMPS
When the first Star Wars was released, the guillotine was still being used in France. 1:02
People born at the same moment can celebrate their birthdays on different days. 1:46
Martin Luther King Jr., Anne Frank, and Christopher Plummer were all born in the same year. 3:15
Cleopatra lived closer to the founding of McDonalds than to the building of the Great Pyramids. 4:14
Some of the whales that lived when Moby-Dick was written are still alive today. 4:58
A plane from New Zealand traveled in time. 5:40
The grandchildren of US President John Tyler, who was born in the 18th century, are still alive. 6:22
Warner Bros. Studios appeared when the Ottoman Empire still existed. 7:18
Throughout the life of Queen Elizabeth II, there have been 16 different US presidents. 8:22
Tiffany & Co. jewelry company is older than Italy. 8:44
If you could fit the entire history of Earth into 1 year, humans would appear at 11:35PM on December 31. 9:59
We are now closer to 2033 than 2000. 12:24

SUMMARY
- The first Star Wars movie was released on May 25, 1977. After that, France officially abolished the use of the guillotine along with the death penalty 1981!
- For example, it's still morning in the US but already the next day in Australia. Anyone who has flown westward over long distances especially gets what we’re saying. You’re travelling for hours and hours but, according to the local time, you arrive to your destination earlier than when you had left!
- The famous American preacher and 1960’s civil rights leader was born in the same year as Anne Frank, a brave little Jewish teenager.
- By the time Cleopatra was born in 69 B.C., the Great Pyramid of Giza had already been around for 2,471 years!
- Herman Melville wrote Moby-Dick in 1851. In his book, the author described a gigantic white whale infamous for its huge size and the destruction it caused to ships. And while such whales have a lifespan of about 50-60 years, the Bowhead whale can live for as long as 200 years and more!
- What happened was a Hawaiian plane took off from Auckland at 12:05AM on January 1, 2018. The passengers on the plane were happy to celebrate the New Year a second time because the plane landed in Honolulu at 10:16AM local time on December 31, 2017.
- John Tyler was born in 1790; that’s over 200 years ago! Yet 2 of his grandchildren, Lyon Gardiner Tyler Junior and Harisson Raffin Tyler, are still alive. Yes, grandchildren!
- In 1903 the Warner brothers opened their first movie theater called the Cascade. Their parents were originally from the Russian Empire, and out of 12 children in the family, it was actually just Harry, Albert, Sam, and Jack that started the famous company.
- Elizabeth II was born in 1926 when Calvin Coolidge was President of the US. Since then, there have been 15 successors.
- The Italy we know today, aka the Italian Republic, was established in 1861, and Charles Lewis Tiffany and John Young opened their first store on Broadway in 1837. But you probably wouldn’t have recognized the company in its early years.
- Let's imagine the Earth’s 4.54 billion-year history is squished into one calendar year. If you crunch the numbers, you’ll see that 1 second would equal 144 years!
- When you hear "10 years ago," you still think of the '90s, not the 2000s, don't you? Isn’t it crazy how so many people are guilty of this? Well, here’s a friendly reminder: it’s been 18 years since the year 2000 (and 28 since 1990!)
