Ever held a soda can in your hand and wondered why is it shaped that way? If you answered ‘no’ then that’s okay. Most of us do not give much thought about these aluminum cans anyway, right? But just in case you responded with a ‘yes’ to that question, then today must be your lucky day!

Bill Hammack, otherwise known as the engineerguy on YouTube, made a very informative video explaining the reason – and the genius – behind the cylindrical shape of soda cans.

It’s truly fascinating, to say the least!

Why not a sphere? Or cube-shaped, maybe? YouTuber engineerguy shares the science behind the iconic soda can design.

According to Bill, about half a trillion cans are manufactured every year. The design, he says, serves a very special purpose. Besides, experts consider the shape as the most practical when the sodas are packed and displayed together.

I don’t know about you but personally, watching the soda can manufacturing process while listening to the YouTuber’s explanations made a satisfying viewing experience for me.

Also, I gotta admit I felt a little bit smarter after watching that. I will probably never look at a soda can the same way as I did before. I kinda appreciate it even more now!

Or heck, who am I kidding here? I may just be looking for a perfect excuse to down another can of Coke today.

So if you will excuse me, I gotta reach for the fridge. Cheers, everyone!

Deep within the lush forests of the Philippines are trees so beautiful and surreal, it would make you wonder if it's the home of enchanted creatures. It's called the Rainbow Eucalyptus Tree and it gets whimsical patches of color when it sheds its bark, creating beautiful technicolor patterns.

When the tree first sheds its bark, it reveals a bright green layer underneath. The transformation happens all the time as it sheds its bark every year at different intervals. As time passes, the pale green transforms into different shades of pale blues, bright oranges, deep purples, and mesmerizing maroons.
