Many things have been misused in the past. Whether it be the handles of a grocery cart or the lid of a Starbucks cup, there are some design specifications that are intended not just for looks but for function as well.

Everyone knows the old saying ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ and we all know that to be very true. Pictures can have a wide variety of purposes to them, whether it is for lifelong memories, to understand something better or just for simple house decoration, these pictures generally mean something. Then there are pictures that literally make you have those ‘OMG’ moments that can make you see life in a completely different way. We aren’t talking about seeing a photo of your ex with a new girl. We’re talking about something more useful. In other words, there are photos that may look completely weird and out of the ordinary, but at the end of the day they make you think. There’s a reason behind them and you might actually learn a thing or two. So here are plenty of pictures that will almost definitely teach you something that you did not know before.

If you don’t have a coaster, don’t worry. Simply flip the Starbucks lid over and place it on the bottom of the cup so that it’ll act as a coaster.

It will help in preventing watermarks and also hold your drink in place.

Did your mind just get blown like ours did? Ya, chickens can swim! Or just float. Though their feathers aren’t waterproof, they have natural instincts to swim.

Other birds however have a tougher time swimming due to their feathers accumulating much more water.

Food containers that you get from restaurants actually make useful plates or eating surfaces. You can always refold them if you don’t finish.

This also saves you from washing dishes or having to use plastic plates or cups.

This is brilliant. Here’s a way of eating a cupcake without getting frosting all over your face and fingers.

Just cut it in half and with the frosting in the middle, create a sandwich. Sort of turns it into a one bite cupcake…as if a cupcake wasn’t already just one bite.

In 2008, a penguin named Nils Olav was knighted by the Norwegian Royal Guard. Once adopted, the penguin became the official mascot of the Guards.

Seems like he is patrolling his fellow comrades as they are in line.

facts

Apparently, the lid of Snapple bottles can tell us a lot. Here it basically tells us that one Venus year is 225 Earth days, and one Venus day is 243 Earth days.

That could either be a good or a bad thing.

This photo made us question a lot about retail. This is proof that things aren’t always what they seem. Now we know how they fold jeans perfectly.

Now what about those mirrors that always make us look so model-ish?

coins

Did you know that the back of British coins can be arranged to display the Royal Coat of Arms? Pretty cool. The special design was introduced in 2008.

Too bad they don’t fit perfectly like puzzle pieces.

dog burrito

This adorable puppy seems to be completely content being snuggled up inside a wrap. We probably wouldn’t recommend anyone doing it, but it does make for a cute photo.

But that puppy is either really small to fit inside a tortilla wrap or that wrap is simply over sized.

books

If you read his books, you probably already know this. George R.R. Martin has killed a lot of people in his A Song of Ice and Fire series.

He’s killed 116 male characters versus 17 female ones. The tab marks features all the deaths.

Ever wondered how powerful an earthquake really is?

Check out this photo of a railroad track in New Zealand that was formed into an S curve after an earthquake. The real question is how do these workers end up renovating it?

bananas

We don’t know if this was photoshopped, but looking at this long banana is tearing us apart. Is it appetizing or does it just look like a weird squiggly worm?

The fact that the peel is nowhere as long as the actual banana is sort of suspicious.

easter island

This photo shows that the Easter Island heads actually have bodies. These statues range in size, with the tallest statue being around 33 feet.

Several questions remain including: how did they get buried so deep? Was it a result of some natural disaster? Or some higher consciousness?

No matter how hard I try I can’t seem to see all the black dots in the middle. This is because your brain tries to fill in patterns based on what’s around you.

So your brain assumes that the surrounding areas are non-dotted as well.

starbucks

Starbucks is perfect for those who want a specialized, unique drink for triple the price but it’s wide array of options does offer its customers much more than the typical black coffee or the double-double.

keys

We have all experienced the brutal pain that is inflicted on our fingers when we try to remove something on a key chain.

This quick and easy method will save you your fingertips and a lot of your frustration. Just be sure to have these things around when you need them!

twinkle star

In this person’s defense it took me 24 years to realize this. Who actually realized that the tune to the ABC’s and twinkle twinkle little stars was the same?

Does copyright and trademark not apply to children’s songs?!

bags

For the longest time I had no clue what the hook on the grocery carts were for. But at least now I know.

This would save me a lot of grip strength from having to haul 18 separate bags of groceries back to my car.

bill gates

Bill Gates is basically a world renowned billionaire. Aside from being a Harvard dropout, many people didn’t realize he got pulled over at a young age for driving without a license.

By the looks of it, it seems like it didn’t faze him.

This is a ground breaker right here. It’s not all the time that we see words that are even words when looked at backwards let alone be identical!

I don’t know how useful this is but it sure is a shocker!

where there

D.W. has always been one of my favorite characters on Arthur.

With her sass and quick wits she constantly batters and belittles Arthur to the viewer’s amusement. Here she is once again dropping a giant knowledge bomb.

key fob

What do you do when the battery in your keyless fob dies? Some cars actually have a secret panel which has a car lock.

You just have to use the key to get the panel loose. Make sure to check the user manual before prying your car open.

earphones

This is the actual way to put on your headphones. This way it prevents your headphones from casually sliding off and it also locks it in place.

This allows you to move around more freely and exercise without the fear of getting them knocked off.

oven drawer

We have long used this drawer to store our pots and pans but this little cabinet actually serves a purpose!

According to the user manual, this drawer is a designated spot for people to put food in that they want to cool down. So instead of putting a pie by the windowsill, stick it in the oven drawer.

slang

I actually had no clue that’s what slang stood for. At least now I know!

This is quite the revelation to be honest. I wonder who first realized this and if their facial expressions resembled anything like the below photo.

dog drink

Dogs drink water by forming a cup with their tongue, flicking it back into their mouth. They have “incomplete cheeks” that enable them to open their mouth wide.

That’s why you always hear that ‘lapping’ noise when they gulp up their water.
