The Mind-Blowing Reason Why Soda Cans Are Shaped That Way

You will never look at soda cans the same. (You spend all your time looking at soda cans. Just admit it.)

When I say the above video about why soda cans are shaped the way they are is mesmerizing, I am not playing with your heart. I mean it. It is fascinating, strange, and makes a strong case for going back to school to study engineering. This video answers all your questions you never knew you had. Like, what's with that dome at the bottom of a can? Why don't you need a can-opener to open cans? It'll also make you appreciate the hell out of pull-tabs in a way you never thought possible. 

Don't just take our word for it. This mesmerizing video has even got YouTube commenters in awe.
