You don't have to be an aeronautical engineer to know that an airplane cabin is pressurised to keep us from passing out as we soar through the skies. It also stands to reason that - to keep that pressure contained - the cabin can't have any holes in it.

So why is there a scary-looking small hole in every airplane window? Well, in short, despite what it seems, it's there for your safety.
