During school lessons, we often looked in the window and did not listen to teachers who tried to explain to us how the world was organized. And when we returned home from school, we turned on the TV to watch popular music videos, cartoons, or play video games, and we did not notice some very important details.
We in Pictolic decided to find out a few facts that were missed as a child.
1. The flame does not scatter the shadows.
There are no shadows in the flames because it is the source of light. That is why the wall or obstacle, where there could be shade, will be covered with a light bonfire if there is no more bright source of light.
2. Scotch makes the frosted glass transparent.
When the light falls on the rough surface of the frosted glass, it dissipates, so the glass becomes dull. The transparent surface has a smoother surface than the frosted glass, so the light is less diffused, and the glass becomes more transparent.
3. Yellow lid from a bottle means that there are special ingredients in the drink.
You probably saw bottles under the gasket with a yellow lid. Thus, the manufacturer marks a special version of the drink with sugar, then, as in the classic soda, contains corn syrup.
4. Wrinkles on the skin of the fingers in the water facilitate our life.
Wrinkles help our fingers to hold wet objects with the best grip. And wrinkles appear due to the narrowing of blood vessels under the skin.
5. If you search 241543903, you will see such photos.
Try it - Google 241543903. You will see a lot of photos of people who put their heads in the freezer or refrigerator. David Horwitz was the first to publish a similar photo with this unique issue. He started the challenge. Number 241543903 represents the combination of the serial number of the refrigerator David and the barcode on the packaging of beans that he had in the refrigerator.
6. The Buddha's head is covered with 108 snails, but not with hair.
An ancient legend says: The Buddha went for a walk, began to meditate, and did not notice that the sun was high in the sky. Snails hit him on the head to protect him from the sun. While the snails froze his head, the Sundried up all the snails, and they died.
7. Bananas and cucumbers are berries, and strawberries are not.
In botany, the berry is a definite type of fruit with thin skin and a juicy middle, which always contains seeds. That's why grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, bananas, chili peppers, and eggplants are technically berries. But strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are really nutty.
8. The house in SpongeBob is made of rubbish.
As fans of SpongeBob SquarePants noticed, the shapes of the houses in the cartoon are very reminiscent of car mufflers that people threw into the ocean.
9. Mermaid and Hercules - relatives.
Ariel from Rusalochki is the daughter of Triton, and Triton is the son of Poseidon, Ariel is the granddaughter of Poseidon. Zeus, the father of Heracles, is the brother of Poseidon. So, Ariel is the granddaughter of Hercules.
10. Mario doesn't break his head at all.
Many remember Mario, the plumber who saves his girlfriend, Princess Peach. We always thought that he broke something in the head, but more attentive fans noticed that Mario always used this fist. And we noticed that the clouds have the same shape as the bushes.
11. The lyrics were sent with the help of Microsoft Excel in a popular music video.
You probably remember this video from the early 2000s, when smartphones could only allow themselves to be famous. So no one noticed that Kelly Rowland was trying to send a text through Microsoft Excel.
12. The Egyptian sphinx has a tail.
Many people have seen the famous face of the Sphinx on the pages of history books, but little does anyone know that he also has a tail.
