WSFM with Jonesy and Amanda share the mind-blowing things they only just discovered now

A tiny triangle is the key to fuelling your car up easier and a hole in the middle of a ladle is the trick to perfect pasta portions.

These are some of the mind-blowing details that have long been ignored which people are now starting to discover and share.

Australian radio show WSFM’s Jonesy and Amanda sparked the discussion when co-host Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones revealed he recently learned the difference between a shepherd’s and a cottage pie.

The radio host said he was sitting down to eat with his family when his daughter asked whether his ‘shepherd’s pie’ was made with lamb or beef.

‘My daughter came in her true millennial way, as we’re eating it, I said “it’s good shepherd’s pie isn’t it?” and she said “well is it made with lamb or beef?” and I said “it’s made with beef” and she said “well it’s not a shepherd’s pie”,’ he said.

‘I said “what do you mean?”. She said “well shepherd’s pie is made with lamb, that’s why it’s called shepherd’s pie. They tend the sheep, they didn’t tend the beef”.

‘I sat there and thought “beep me, I didn’t know that”.’

A surprised Jonesy asked his daughter where she learned the detail, to which she responded ‘from Gordon Ramsay in one of his Kitchen Nightmare shows’.

His co-host Amanda Keller said her mind was blown when she discovered the little triangle on the petrol gauge indicated which side of the car to access your fuel tank.

‘Ages ago, someone told me what that petrol symbol in your car, next to your little bowser there’s a little arrow that tells you which side your petrol hole is,’ she said.

Soon listeners called into the radio show, revealing what they only just learned.

One man said he discovered the little-known cardboard tab on either side of cling wrap and foil boxes actually lock the rolls in place so they don’t fly out when using.

Another caller said she learned that an ox is just a castrated bull, making them more docile and useful as work animals. Bulls have their testicles intact, and are used for breeding.

Meanwhile, other people have shared the little purposes on social media they didn’t know their everyday objects had.
