We use dozens, if not hundreds of things every day. We constantly see them, but we rarely pay attention to them at all. Moreover, most of us do not even know how the little things are correctly called, despite the fact that they flash before our eyes several times a day. To your attention, the "five" of all well-known objects, whose names almost no one knows.
Every time we tie the laces on sneakers or sneakers, few of us think that, if not for one small upgrade, this procedure would be much more difficult. We are talking about plastic or metal attachments at the ends of the ties. Despite the fact that little attention is paid to them, they have important functionality: to facilitate the process of lacing shoes, as well as to prevent the ends of the laces from fluffing. Naturally, this small, but remote little thing has a name. Therefore, starting to tie shoelaces, for the ease of implementation of this process, you can mentally thank not “these things at the end”, but “egglets”.
Almost all jeans or trousers provide the ability to support them at the waist with a belt. However, not everyone knows that the loops, which perform the above function, have a separate name. And they are called loops - it is through them that the belt is threaded on the jeans, and they also hold it in the desired position.
Many of us like to drink street tea or coffee in a plastic cup on a cold day. And at the same time, they mentally thank the paper attachment, which does not allow them to burn their fingers. However, few people know that this piece of cardboard also has a name - capholder. By the way, over the years of use, its functionality has increased - now advertisers print the necessary information on it or write optimistic phrases to raise the barista's mood.
Most often, instructions for the use of toothpaste write that for one tooth brushing, a portion should be "necessary" or "sufficient". Sometimes a more precise formulation is used - "pea-sized paste". However, in fact, this portion has its own name - "nirdl".
It's important to know: Nirdl, in fact, each person can have their own, however, it is often called a "pea" for a reason - just such a volume should be a portion of toothpaste for one cleaning of teeth. And the long strips on the entire toothbrush are just a pretty picture for advertising. Moreover, such portions are simply irrational to use.
Every time we peel a banana, we encounter fibers that pass between the peel and the fruit itself. Someone throws them away, and some do not see anything wrong with eating them. But not everyone knows that they have a name. And we are not talking about an ordinary word, but about a full-fledged scientific term: the fact is that these fibers are nothing more than conductive tissues, which are in every plant, and therefore have a name with a biological bias - "phloem".
