The latest in the world of "building a better mousetrap" is a grocery item labeled "pot-sized spaghetti"! No longer must you engage in the back wrenching effort of breaking your spaghetti in half before throwing it into the pot of boiling salted water, nor shall you ever again stand there holding a handful of long strands of spaghetti in a pot of boiling water until the strands soften up and enter the water whole. Now all you have to do is throw a box of pot-sized spaghetti into your grocery shopping cart, go home, and, after you engage in the great effort of boiling water (have you learned to boil water yet?), you will have to open the box, and toss the already shortened strands of spaghetti into the pot. Do you think you can do that?
