    Question General Knowledge

    In discussion today several people said they didn't know that they should fully discharge a rechargeable battery - like in a laptop - on a regular basis. Now I thought that was general knowledge?

    What 'things' have you found that you would have thought was general knowledge but just aren't?

    Can't think of anything at the moment, but I'm subbing as this could be interesting.

    You must properly 'eject' a USB drive from a computer before removing it from the USB slot.

    I thought the fact that my XH was a colossal douche was common knowledge but apparently his new gf didn't get the memo… lol

    I saw a pic on Facebook the other day about bobby pins and which way up they go in your hair. It made out like no-one knew the kinked side goes closest to your head and the flat side sits on top of the hair, so the kinked side doesn't poke out able your hair.

    I thought everyone knew that ... Don't they?!

    I saw that on FB too... But I had always done it the other way round! Is it true?!

    Default Re: General Knowledge

    Actually both of these general knowledge things are no longer accurate Newer computers don't require you to eject usb sticks and lithium ion batteries get no benefit from being fully discharged...

    It is general knowledge about your XH though, some people are just a little behind the 8 ball...

    I'm always amazed by what urban legends people think are real. Like I thought it was general knowledge the story about the work cover person booking the cop was an urban legend but I still have people argue with me that no! It seriously happened to a friend of a friend of mine!

    I thought it was the other way as I don't want the pointy bit digging into my head. Are they really meant to go in upside down??
