As there are still many things that we can not find out from the internet.
When I was young I noticed out that there is a small hole on the tin box of the shoe shinning wax… Why.. This is my thoughts!?
They make a small hole as to release the air when they close the cover during manufacturing? Since the box is air tight.. But on the other hand, the small hole will case the wax to get dry faster?
So every time I buy a box of Kiwi shoe wax, I used a plastic tape to seal the hole… the wax seem never get dry and can be used for many years more.
Sometimes I think that was the purpose of the Kiwi as they know that small hole can speed up the aging of the wax and soon be dried, so that they can sell more… is that Right!? A tricky sales gadget!?

Or Ask a University Graduate in Electronic what is the function of the Ground Pin our home electrical power plug! How does it work!?- They said this can be the thesis for the PhD of Electronics…
Ask a 10 years old kid where the milk is come from… most of the replies are 7-11!
You will be surprised that they know nothing of about something that is very simple things in life.
What can we do? What is wrong with our educational system whereby they can pass the examination with high score,. But they seem do not know anything more about it…
Well, partly because of the educational system, partly the kids never come out of the learning other than what they learn form school, and those tedious learning under his private teachers of piano, Violin…
