The part of the zipper you yank on to make your jeans or jacket close. Speaking of, the part directly attached to the pull tab, the one that runs along the track to zip or unzip your clothes, is called the slider or slider head.

Those stringy things on a banana that you have to keep removing as you try to enjoy the potassium-packed fruit.

3. Scroll Wheel

The bottom part of a wine bottle that points inward. Back when glassblowers made bottles, this helped the bottles stand up, according to WineSpectator.com. Now that wine bottles are machine-made the punt's not necessary, but rather just tradition.

7. Gound

You know that gross gunk you remove from your eyes in the morning? Yep, it has an equally gross name.

8. Lie Bumps

Have you ever had a white-colored, pimple-like lump appear on your tongue? Well, it's not actually a pimple. It's a lie bump, more formally known as transient lingual papillitis (TLP). They also tend not to be serious, but if they last for more than week, see your doctor.

9. Ferrule

Two common types of umbrellas are the telescopic umbrella (the kind you throw in your purse all the time) and the stick umbrella. The cap at the tip of the latter kind of umbrella is a ferrule. The same term also refers to the metal attachment toward the non-writing end of the pencil, right before the eraser.

10. Nose Pads

Those clear, oval-shaped attachments on the inner part of eyeglasses and sunglasses. They sit on your nose and protect it from the frame.
