Everyday Items And Their Real Purpose

There are numerous objects in our everyday lives that seem so common that we never give them much thought. We think we know everything we need to know about them and don’t give them much thought. However, now more than ever, we spend a lot of time around the house, so now is the perfect time to understand the purpose of the everyday items that make our lives easier.

The famous BIC lid

Who hasn’t chewed on a pen lid? Most of us have when we’re bored or nervous. Did you ever notice the hole in the lid and wonder what it was for? It is there to prevent the ink from drying out, to keep it balanced so that it does not leak or to regulate air pressure. Its main purpose may surprise you, as it could literally save your life.

Every year, 100 people in the U.S. die from choking on these pen lids (we didn’t know that either). For this reason, BIC’s lids have a hole on the top that, in case of an accident, swallowing, prevents the windpipe from getting entirely blocked and allows the passage of air, allowing the person to breathe. I bet you never knew this seemingly innocent hole can save your life. Ingenious? Other companies are introducing similar ideas.
