If necessity is the mother of invention, delay is the father of invention.
An invention that will prove that “delay is the father of invention” is this butter knife which transfers heat from the hand to the blade to make it easier and faster to spread cold butter on a slice of bread. Only someone who has been delayed for his breakfast because of having to wait for the butter to soften up could have thought about this. But of course, there are many other proves such as the microwave, the electric kettle and the clothes dryer—all invented by men.
However, a father does not deserve to be called a father if he does not go to work and provide for the family. Unfortunately, the invention of this butter knife is categorized under one of those fathers. It costs $20 to have it around and according to many verified purchasers who left a review on Amazon, it does not work.
According to its product page, it can replace a full set of knives and the cutting board.
This means that it can be used for mincing, thinly slicing, finely chopping, cutting open a pineapple, cutting open a watermelon, and much more.
Saltwater Brewery, a brewery company from South Florida, uses edible rings instead of plastic rings to save ocean life from getting tangled or eating it and die. The edible rings break apart within 2 hours in the ocean and completely dissolves in 2 – 3 months. And nothing goes to waste as they are made out of the byproduct of the beer itself.
