WHY DO SAILORS WEAR BELL BOTTOM TROUSERS?
.....................................
1. the flared leg allows bell bottoms to fit over boots easily. sailors traditionally sleep with their boots at the side of the bed,so that, in case of emergency, they don't have to waste time trying to position their pants over their footwear. when sailors are up on deck, the flare bottoms protects him from spray and rain entering their boots.

2. bell bottoms are easily rolled up. because sailors works potentially harmful chemicals onboard deck, rolling up the cuffs prevents permanent damage to the pants. also, if sailors need to wade ashore, they could easily rolled up above the knee.

3. if a sailor is thrown overboard, bell bottoms are also easily to remove than conventional trousers. and the loose fit of the bell bottom also makes it easier to remove boots in water.

4. sailors are taught in boot camp, if the legs of the bell bottom are tied at the end, bell bottoms holds quite lots of air and in a pinch they can be used as a flotataion device.

WHY DO NURSES WEAR WHITE? WHY DO SURGEONS WEAR BLUE OR GREEN WHEN OPERATING?
....................................................

Florence Nightingale always wear white uniform. white of course, is a symbol of purity and in the case of a nurse, an appropriate and practical one - white quickly shows any dirtiness.

surgeons wear white until 1914, when a surgeon decided that red blood against a white uniform was rather repulsive and needlessly graphic. the spinach green color he chose to replace it helped neutralize the bright red. at the end of world war II, the lighting was changed inside the operating room and most surgeons switched to a color called "misty green" since 1960 most surgeons have used color called "seal blue" which contains a lot of gray. according to surgeons, "seal blue" shows better on tv monitor during surgery for students to watcH.
