    Dull knife + coffee cup

    Saw one of those life hack videos last week.
    Assumed it might come in handy some day.

    Just cooking a late breakfast of spaghetti w/ sauteed shrimp and tomatoes.

    Swiss chard and collards w/ garlic on the side.

    Started cutting the tomato and thought, "damn this knife is dull."

    Tried the coffee cup trick (unglazed cup bottom) and the knife cut through the tomatoes like 'it through a goose.

    I have a nice sharpener (Spyderco) but lose track of maintaining the kitchen blades sometimes.

    Great tip

    You really should include pics of said food because it sounds so delicious. just sayin...
    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    For something so simple it was damn good.
    Whole wheat pasta.
    Shrimp sauteed w/ diced tomato and garlic w/ olive oil and sherry.
    Mix of swiss chard and collard greens sauteed/steamed down in a big covered pot.

    Waiting for a new card reader, should be here soon
