This little gizmo looks like something any tea connoisseur should know. Surprisingly, however, it has nothing to do with tea.
What you’re looking at is called a scuttle. And while it looks like the holy reunion between two teacups, it’s actually a shaving accessory. The top part is meant to hold shaving cream, and the bottom part is where you clean the brush.
Using a public bathroom is riddled with potential dangers. Questions about hygiene, toilet paper supply, and obscene graffiti take center stage whether you like it or not. But one question you usually don't ask yourself is if the toilet has enough support.
After seeing this picture, though, you might start questioning the stability of any wall-mounted toilet bowl.
From Construction to Artillery
In the days of yore, ancient builders and construction workers had used a tool called a plumb bob. Similar in shape to the object we see here, the plumb bob is used in construction and carpentry to make sure surfaces are straight and well-balanced.
This dreidle-like item, however, turned out to be a Japanese artillery fuse. The dials and markings were used to determine an explosion's delay time (0-30 seconds).
Freezing Your Assets
Nothing is more satisfying than finding money on the street. When this person stumbled upon what seemed like a block of frozen cash, they were about to do their happy dance, but then they took a closer look and realized something wasn't quite right.
Like how this ice block was out in the dirt and not melting. Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be no more than a sorely misleading paperweight.
Pet Store Perks
Toys for pets are usually pretty self-explanatory. They're all basically differently-shaped items to either chew or chase around. Simple as that. Or, at least, that's what we thought.
This odd-looking piece of rubber turns out to be a toothbrushing toy for dogs! The flat bottom sticks to the floor, leaving the upright part steadily sticking up so your pooch can chew on the bristles and clean its teeth.
