Behold the world's first heated knife, the must-have product that will alter family dinners in tremendous fashion. Take note of all the potential uses:
1. As demonstrated, the age-old argument of "should we heat up the butter?" is now obsolete. No longer do you have to decide between bread with an ice-cube or lobster dressing. Also demonstrated, will provide some added melt action for early-morning toast.
2. Ice Cream Cake: In my family, there is a rather contentious ideological splitsville regarding the proper temperature of ice cream cake. My dad, who clearly enjoys brain-freeze and other general discomforts, prefers the cake rock-solid. I, on the other hand, am a normal individual who'd rather eat ice cream cake than engrave symbols in frozen ice-crystals. Now we can both be happy.
3. Threats (not advised), and metaphors about threats.
4. A nice way to spice up the often stale conversation surrounding wine and cheese gatherings. It's almost guaranteed such a novelty will demand at least 10-15 minutes of discussion, most of which will revolve around a man over 50's idea to invent something that initially sounds practical, but actually isn't.
