Self Heated Butter Knife
You know that saying ‘like a hot knife through butter’? We always thought it was bull. Who heats up a knife? How would you heat it up? Can’t use the microwave. Hold a lighter under it like a crack head? Turns out that isn’t even what that saying means. It isn’t literal. It means something is easier than Randall’s sister after a dirty martini.
The imaginative nature of that saying didn’t stop the good people at That! Inventions from taking it super literal. They created a butter knife that heats up by the magic of thermal conductivity. Of course by magic we really mean a very well studied principle of physics, of which we have a fairly complete understanding. Thankfully smart people have discovered and subsequently studied such principles so that this accumulation of knowledge could one day be molded and harnessed into this awesome butter knife.
Have you tried spreading cold butter on toast with a cold knife? Hope you like half your toast missing and the other half on the floor. Seriously, the a-hole that invented cold butter was the most passive aggressive person in history. Here is the most amazingly decadent ingredient known to man, the best thing since sliced bread, good freaking luck using on the aforementioned sliced bread. Even if you heat up said bread you’re screwed. Finally someone invented a product that took the pep out of the cold butter guy’s step. His reign of terror has officially been…melted?
