Did you know that barcode scanners actually scan the white spaces in-between the lines and not the lines themselves? Yep, it's true. I bet you never really though about it before, huh?

In fact, there are a lot of surprising things that you've probably never thought about before, and Bored Panda has compiled a list of them to prove so. Keep on scrolling to take a look and prepare to be mind blown because once you're through with it, you'll be thinking that you had it all wrong before! Don't forget to vote for your favorites.
