15 Things Invented for Totally Different Purposes

Оценок: 17973 | Просмотров: 2660196
We’re used to thinking everything has its purpose. However, many items we use every day were once used quite differently. Bright Side suggests looking into the history of ordinary things to see what purpose they served before becoming what we know them to be. TIMESTAMPS Coca-Cola 0:38 Black dress 1:20 Karaoke 1:53 Play-Doh 2:30 Treadmill 3:13 Post-it notes 3:40 Bubble wrap 4:15 Vaseline 4:53 Slinky 5:30 Listerine 6:10 Viagra 7:00 Microwave 7:29 Pillows 8:08 Tea bags 8:43 High heels 9:17 SUMMARY - Coca-Cola has a kind of fascinating history. Pharmacist John Pemberton, a veteran of the American Civil War, made a concoction out of kola nuts and coca leaves. He recommended it to soldiers taking morphine for wounds to treat their nervous system. - Up until the 1920s, black clothes were commonly worn as a symbol of mourning and for at least two years. Then, in 1926, Coco Chanel sewed her famous little black dress, called “Chanel’s Ford” by Vogue, in memory of her beloved. - Daisuke Inoue invented the machine that played music without the vocals, so the musicians relaxed while the public enjoyed singing to the beat. - Play-Doh had initially been used to clean wallpaper in houses equipped with fireplaces that accumulated soot. - Treadmill. The prototype of a modern treadmill was created by Sir William Cubitt in 1818 to do something with idle prisoners, using their muscle power to mill grain. - Dr. Spencer Silver was in the process of inventing a permanent adhesive, but the resulting glue wasn’t strong enough, and objects unstuck with ease. Then his colleague, Arthur Fry, proposed using this adhesive to anchor his bookmarks in his hymnbook. - The famous bubble wrap was invented by engineers Alfred Fielding and Marc Chavannes in 1957. It was initially to become a three-dimensional plastic wallpaper, but the idea didn’t quite work out. - In the mid-19th century, oil field workers always fought the waxy substance that accumulated in the oil rig pumps. The British chemist Robert Chesebrough, though, saw an opportunity: he took a part of this “petroleum jelly,’’ did some research, and found that it  had useful properties. - Slinky was actually not a kids’ toy initially. Richard T. James, a naval engineer, was once working on a means for suspending sensitive shipboard instruments and accidentally dropped a tension spring that crawled away merrily. - Joseph Lawrence invented this antiseptic in 1879 to clean surgical instruments. It was even named after surgeon Dr. Joseph Lister. However, people saw its potential and started using it everywhere: treating wounds, dentistry, curing dandruff and fungi, and even as a deodorant. - Pfizer was developing a cardiac disorder treatment, but the clinical trials showed the new medication was quite useless in this regard. However, an unusual side effect was noted: the substance strongly affected the blood flow in the pelvic region. - Few people know that the microwave oven as we know it was not invented on purpose. A Raytheon employee, engineer Percy Spencer, had been testing radar equipment and noticed that microwaves from an active radar melted a chocolate bar in his pocket. - In Mesopotamia, pillows were an attribute of wealthy people, while hard headrests were used to keep bugs and insects out of people’s hair and face. In Ancient China, it was believed that soft pillows were useless, while hard headrests made of bamboo, jade, porcelain, wood, or bronze gave strength and protection from demons. - In 1904, Thomas Sullivan, a tea and coffee importer from New York, decided to sell tea with more style by pouring it into silk bags. His customers found the novelty appealing, but for quite another reason: it turned out to be more convenient to brew the tea right in the porous bags. - In Ancient Egypt, high heels were a sign of the status of high officials who wore high-heeled footwear to religious rituals. This included both men and women. Such shoes were also favored by butchers to avoid walking in blood, while Persian equestrians used high heels to hold on when shooting their bows.

#12 is factually incorrect. It was Silly Putty that was initially used to clean wallpaper and then rebranded, remarketed and was sold as a toy.

They forgot Mylar. It was originally to be used to keep bread fresh. However, they discovered that it so tough that bread, once wrapped in Mylar, couldn't be opened. They ended up using it for weather balloons.

Although I am well aware we are in 2018 with a wide range of comfy pillows. A bamboo hard headrest sounds like something I wouldn't mind trying. I'll be protected from demon's as well as trying something new, 2 for the price of 1

Click bait thumbnail, again, you are supposed to brew through the bag not open it and brew the leaves outside of it.

imagine the idiots going around telling people tea was intended to be dumped from the tea bag into the water instead of steeped inside the bag all just from the thumbnail. and then imagine the amount of dumb people that believe them and then spreading the stupidity without even trying it.

that sums up the human race...well for the most part.

Not a fan of the thumbnail. There are certain herbs used in tea that shouldn't be consumed in large quantities. Therefore the bag was designed to allow minimal amounts of herbal essence and small particles to dissolve into the water.

According to BBC News The world's first karaoke machine, the Juke-8, was built by Japanese inventor and musician Daisuke Inoue in 1971. But it is Filipino inventor Roberto del Rosario who holds the machine's patent. He developed the Karaoke Sing-Along System in 1975.

I “love” how he oversimplified the treadmill. It actually was used as a torture device with a functional purpose. The prisoners would be on there all day woh little food or water. They would die on it all the time.

When I first smelled Play-Doh that I bought for my little boy, it was a familiar scent, but I couldn't place where I had smelled it before. I was a small child when my aunt used wallpaper cleaner to erase stains on the wallpaper in her bedroom. The smell of the canned eraser was unmistakable. Chicago was a sooty place then; everybody burned coal to stay warm in winter.

You can say that coca cola and listerine and play-doh was invented with another purpose. Going from painkiller to soft drink , from utensil cleaner to breath freshener and from wall cleaner to kids toy is changed purpose. But Post-its was invented to be Post-its. That the glue used was a result of a failed attempt, does not make Post-its invented for a different purpose. High heels was invented to be high heels, not to be a utensil for picking boogers. And vaseline isn't invented at all, it is just a purified oil rig side product.
