Categories: World |
Our big world is full of amazing discoveries, and, of course, it is impossible to know the answers to all questions. Fortunately, they can be found on the Internet…
One of the Reddit communities called " What is it?" helps in finding answers. Some users post photos of strange unidentified objects in it, and others help to figure out what it is after all.
From unusual demonic creatures to strange doors in the toilet, from incomprehensible retro objects to a hole in the sky — in this collection you will find a lot of interesting answers to questions that may amaze you.
What kind of green alien shnyaga grew up on a Band-Aid?
As a former head of a pharmaceutical laboratory, I believe that these are acrylates on the adhesive side of the patch, which have absorbed a large amount of moisture over the past five years. Or there was a sharp change in the storage temperature or the humidity level was too low. Perhaps this green is the result of the reaction of one of the components in the paint of the patch, which at a certain pH becomes green. This also explains the uniformity of color and crystallization. But since medical products such as patches do not provide a list of the ingredients that make up their composition, I can't say for sure which component it is. If the patch is stored in a dry place without temperature changes, then its storage period is not limited. But manufacturers do not imply that their products will be stored for a long time in conditions of changing temperature and humidity. Usually, the retention of medical patches is about two years, during which they will be purchased at a pharmacy.

I keep a carnivorous plant in this jar. This stuff appeared on the wall. Help!
This is definitely a mushroom, a slime web. I envy you right now! If you take a piece and put it in another jar, you will have a new pet. They feed on oats.
Why are there black dots on the bus window?
Black dots located around the perimeter of car windows are called "frit". They are made of ceramic paint baked in the chamber.
They perform several functions at once. First, they protect the sealant that holds the glass in place from ultraviolet rays. Polyurethane glue, which prevents water from entering the interior and generally holds the glass in place, is afraid of sunlight and loses its properties with prolonged exposure to them.
Secondly, if there were no frit, the layer of sealant used to glue the glass would be visible. So they also carry an aesthetic burden.

Why do we need such doors?
The architect answers. The bottom line is that with the help of an unusual shape of the doors, architects / designers prevent the contamination of toilets. In some rooms, according to the rules, there must be restrooms. But it takes time and money to clean them. The main purpose of such doors is to limit privacy. Few people will agree to use the bathroom so "openly". Fewer people — less pollution.
