    I found this series back in the fall when the third video came out. They're sporadic, but they are great. The vids are like 1 minute each, the writeups don't take much longer than that to read, and they're all amazing.

    The only example I'd even heard of before this was the soda cans.

    Ketchup cups, cupcakes, Chinese takeout and apples all blew my mind. Thought you guys might get a kick out of them.

    Yeah, well, there's still no graceful way to eat noodles with chopsticks.

    How to open a wine bottle with a tennis shoe:

    Except that takes twice as long and is not using something that makes things easier or the product was designed to do.

    I thought this thread was for sex tips.
  6. You never went somewhere with a bottle of wine and no opener?

    Also, what if you want to bring a half-pint of your sesame noodles home with you? You're supposed to reconstruct the container?

    And imagine that. The little folds on the ketchup container aren't just decorative.

    Mind blown: Chinese takeout containers, ketchup cups.

    Still skeptical because my mind was so blown: apples.

    Doesn't seem practical: cupcakes (so many are so light that you'd be tearing the thing to pieces), strawberries (it seems like you're wasting a lot; why not eat it like an apple?).

    Not how I use these products: soda cans (no straw, please), Tic Tacs (I always want at least three).

    Or like at my cousin's wedding last fall when my uncle broke the corkscrew.

    Leave the money on the dresser, it's classier that way.

    I've done the cupcake thing. It's BRILLIANT. Even super fluffy ones work.
