Five Everyday Things You Didn’t Know Had a Purpose

Five Everyday Things You Didn’t Know Had a Purpose

cqaxjugwwaanest

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.

Your Christmas Lights Could Screw Up Your Wi-Fi

Your Christmas Lights Could Screw Up Your Wi-Fi

 

Warning that Christmas fairy lights can slow your Wi-Fi

Warning that Christmas fairy lights can slow your Wi-Fi

 

If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of decorating your house this Christmas, here’s one your family will TOTALLY accept. They might even THANK you for your laziness.

Your Christmas lights could screw up your Wi-Fi.

A British tech company studied how Christmas lights affect your Wi-Fi, and found that the electromagnetic interference from the lights might slow it DOWN. So if your Netflix gets choppy, maybe it’s your decorations.

They also might NOT, since there are a ton of factors at play . . . but they MIGHT. And is there ANY possibility that’s more frightening?

They say things like baby monitors and microwaves can also mess up your Internet speed. So, um . . . I guess let your baby fend for itself and stop eating Hot Pockets?
