Five Everyday Things You Didn’t Know Had a Purpose

Five Everyday Things You Didn’t Know Had a Purpose


We found a list online of everyday things you’ve probably never thought about.  But they all have a purpose.  Here are five we liked . . .

1.  The hole in the top of a pen cap.  It’s not some weird engineering thing that keeps it from drying out.  It just makes the cap less of a hazard for little kids by keeping their airway open if they choke on it.

2.  Sometimes when you buy nice clothes, there’s an extra piece of fabric in one of the pockets.  It’s not there in case you need to make a patch.  It’s there so you can test laundry detergent on it.

3.  The little “fifth pocket” in your jeans was originally there to hold a pocket watch.  And the metal rivets prevent the seams from ripping.

4.  On a measuring tape, there’s usually a tiny hole in the hook at the end.  It’s there so you can hook it onto a nail or a screw.  And the bottom of the hook usually has little teeth, so you can use it to mark drywall while you’re measuring.

5.  There’s a soft plastic disc under the lid of a two-liter soda bottle.  Even if you take it out, the bottle might not leak.  But it has to be there to make it airtight.  Otherwise it would go flat a lot faster.

Mark Cuban’s Six Pieces of Advice If You Win the Powerball

Mark Cuban’s Six Pieces of Advice If You Win the Powerball

Mark Cuban

The Powerball drawing is tonight at 10:59 P.M. Eastern. The prize is now up to $1.5 BILLION . . . and it’ll probably jump even higher over the course of the day. That means the LUMP sum should also cross the $1 billion mark, which is crazy.

So what do you do if you win? I mean . . . uh . . . WHEN you win. Here are six pieces of advice from MARK CUBAN. After all, he became a billionaire the old fashioned way. You know . . . by tricking the suckers at Yahoo into giving him a fortune.

  1.  Hire a tax attorney first.
  2.  Don’t take the lump sum, so you don’t blow it all.
  3.  If you weren’t happy yesterday, winning won’t make you happy tomorrow.
  4.  But if you WERE happy yesterday, winning will make you VERY happy tomorrow. You’ll enjoy a life where you don’t have to worry about bills.
  5.  Tell all of your friends and family NO when they ask for money. No exceptions. If you help someone, it should be someone you’re close enough to that you knew about their financial issues BEFORE you won. And no one needs $1 million for anything.
  6.  Winning the lottery doesn’t make you a smart investor, so don’t make investments. Just put the money in the bank and live comfortably forever.

Video of Sir Mix-A-Lot Rapping "Baby Got Back" with a Full Orchestra

Earlier this year, we heard that SIR MIX-A-LOT was teaming up with the Seattle Symphony for an ORCHESTRAL version of “Baby Got Back”. Well, it went down on Friday night, and the footage is online.

Before he started rapping, Sir Mix-A-Lot said, quote, “Since tonight is ‘Orchestral Movements from the Hood Night,’ I’m going to leave some of this open, if a couple of ladies would like to come up onto the stage . . .

“I don’t touch! We will not bite unless you want us to.” Dozens of women took him up on his offer, including some that definitely ‘GOT BACK.’ (Especially the lady in the green and black at the 4:50 mark.)
