Forget curing cancer: Scientists have discovered the perfect way to break spaghetti
With all the incredible medical and technological advancements coming out of the scientific community these days you might not think that researchers would be spending time studying spaghetti, but you'd be wrong. In a new paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, MIT scientists explain how to correctly break strands of the stringy pasta in half.
If you've ever made spaghetti you'll be very familiar with this particular problem: Dry spaghetti strands don't fit perfectly in most stovetop pots. You can either drop them in at full length and let them hang over the edge as the bottom half goes soft to snap them in half, in which case you'll end up with a bunch of smaller pasta chunks and a metric ton of tiny spaghetti fragments that aren't good for much of anything.
