I don’t know about you guys, but we thought the hole at the top of the pen was to stop the ink from running out…

WELL WE ARE ALL WRONG.

It actually has a very VERY important purpose.

It's there to lower the risk of suffocation.

If a small child is chewing on the cap… or if you’re stressed AF during an exam… or if you’re bored at work (Oops) and choked on it, the hole actually keeps our airways from closing up entirely.

So basically it’s a lifesaver.

We learn something new every day.

And if you knew this congrats smarty-pants.
