Content creator David Parody has over 5 million followers on Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok.
when he Post about his epiphany, Comments flooded in from people all over the world who were divided on whether David was a mad genius or total ignorance.
He opened TikTok with a brazen question. he asked.
Pointing the camera at the standard set of blinds, David reached out to grab the cord that opened the blinds.
He grabbed the front part of the cord and pulled.
“Throughout my life, I’ve thought this, you pulled to go up,” he began.
Then I reached for the other string behind me and pulled the string to lower the blind. “And this you get off,” he continued.
Then David reached for the front leash. He showed that by pulling it up and then down, the front cord could raise or lower the blinds, depending on which direction you pulled.
“Just one side!” cried David. “It does both. What?!”
Some commentators were genuinely surprised by his revelation, confessing that they had no idea window blinds were so easy to use.
“We all go to TikTok school,” one commenter wrote.
“OMG I tried it. Shocked!” said another.
“Oh my God… what I learned from this damn app,” wrote a third person in disbelief.
One commenter even said, “No, you’re a genius for figuring this out. I didn’t have a clue.”
Some were less impressed with David’s big “find”.
“Wait, you guys don’t know this?” asked a puzzled commenter.
Therefore, they argued, the code’s dual functionality should have been obvious.
“Breaking news,” one commenter quipped, “a chain is one continuous chain.”
“I thought everyone chose the second option. I didn’t know you could do the first option,” said another.
A third subset of commenters were eager to provide hotter tips about David’s own home.

“It’s only possible when the string is attached to the wall, not when it’s hanging freely,” one commenter noted.
