Uploaded by BRIGHT SIDE There are some things we use or do all the time without knowing the true reason behind them. Instead of taking them for granted, find out what the most curious facts about everyday objects you never had time to Google.
Why are plane windows rounded? Why are sneakers called sneakers? What is the right way to peel a banana? You’ll be surprised to find out the answers to these questions.
Did you think croissants were from France? If yes, then you’re not alone. Given the French name, it’s obvious that most people would think they originated in France. But that’s not true. Croissants actually hail from Vienna, Austria.
Trailers were originally shown at the end of a feature film screening, but the practice didn’t last long because patrons would leave the theater soon after the films ended.
Barbie’s full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. And, she doesn’t come from Malibu, but a fictional place called Willows in Wisconsin instead.
No one can imagine any electronics to be associated with water. But the USB logo has a subtle link to water. It is modeled after the trident of Poseidon, the god of the Sea and other waters.

SUMMARY
-In fact, the hole between the camera and the flash on the iPhone is a microphone to record sound while you use the rear camera to make videos.
-Slotted patches on some backpacks were originally designed to carry an ice ax.
-The hole in the bottom of a padlock lets water drain out in case the lock is out in the open during rain.
-The USB logo is modeled after the trident of Poseidon, the god of the Sea and other waters.
-The marks near the sealed end of a tube are there so that the machine on the production line knows where a package needs to be pressed, folded, or cut.
-The stem on a wine glass is there so that the heat from your palm while holding the glass, does not alter the wine’s temperature.
-Maple syrup jar handles are reminiscent of a bygone era when maple syrup was packaged in 5-gallon jugs.
-The right way to peel a banana is to pinch the other side of the banana gently so that the peel opens up and you can then peel it off.
-Barbie’s full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. Her parents are George and Margaret Roberts.
-No one actually knows who invented the fire hydrant, including the omniscient Google.
-Nearly 30,000 trees are chopped down every day to meet the global demand for toilet paper.
-Trailers were originally shown at the end of a feature film screening.
-Croissants actually hail from Vienna, Austria.
-Square windows having four corners have four weak spots, are highly susceptible to cracking under stress. With this in mind, engineers decided to round the edges of the windows to distribute the pressure and stress evenly.
-Sneakers got their name because their soles do not make noise while walking letting the owner to “sneak”.
-Due to the position of certain alphabet pairs, the arms of the typist would get jammed if they typed too fast. So they simply moved the problematic letters around.
