Sometimes mistakes can be lucky. One of the most commonly used office supplies, the Post-it note, was invented by accident. When one scientist was trying to create a strong adhesive but ended up with a weak one instead, his colleague created a bookmark that would stick to the page without damaging it. And the yellow paper was used for creating the prototypes just because it was the only paper left. This is how the product was born, and it now makes a lot of things much easier.Inspired by this story, we decided to find more useful creations that can be very handy in your daily life.

We may enjoy a variety of fabrics today, but back in Tudor’s era there was a sort of “fabric hierarchy”. Thing is, not everyone was allowed to wear posh clothes made of silk — since silk was reserved for the members of the royal family. Knights could opt for velvet. Also, common people had to be really careful about colors — for instance, it was prohibited to wear purple. As ridiculous as it might seem today, in 15th and 16th century England, the wrong color and fabric choice could land people in legal trouble.

Are chocolate bars really getting smaller as time goes by, or is it just an optical illusion? The truth is, it has nothing to do with packaging or the way these snacks are molded these days. Chocolate bars are indeed getting smaller. Some well-known brands have dropped off as much as 0.3 oz from their standard chocolate bar. When asked why, most companies tend to say it’s because of what consumers want. The answer is a bit more complicated than that. First, we have to look at the global chocolate market. People really do love chocolate, and the global demand for the sugary treat becomes larger each year. These days, we’re talking about a whopping 18,000 tons of chocolate per day, which translates to over 40 million bars. But in order to have chocolate, you first need to harvest cocoa beans.

Food items like chips come with about 43% nitrogen inside their package. It might seem they sell you half a bag of air, but it’s exactly the opposite: oxygen, the gas we breathe, would react with the chips inside the bag and make them go rancid quickly. It’s called ‘oxidizing’ for a reason.
Always choose wisely when ordering meat at a restaurant. Especially when it comes to the ground meat most of us have in burgers. Why?

When you’re planning to start eating healthy, bread is often one of the first foods you want to exclude from your diet.

These things might seem small, but they can be enough to drive us up the wall.
