Couple Random Investigations....

1.)Why are all watches in advertisements set to 10:10? (After contacting Timex website I learned that it is because often the manufactures name is below the 12 and this allows it to be seen unobstructed. The second reason sited was that this way the hands look to be smiling and it is more visually appealing)


2.)Why are soft pack cigarettes longer then their hard pack counterparts? I noticed this when SA ran out of hard pack and I had to buy soft pack. I tried to put the soft pack cigarettes into the hard pack and they were a tighter fit. (After contacting parliament to ask about this, I was assured that there was the same amount of tobacco in each cigarette, but that the packaging difference causes the tobacco in the hard pack to be condensed making them a little shorter. To be certain of this I bought both kinds and cut one of each cigarette open and weighed them and it was correct the tobacco in each weighed the same even though the soft pack cigarette was a little longer)

Carry on....
