Yep, we know, mind blown.

Maybe give yourself a minute to let that information percolate.

This handy chopstick holder may be the most satisfying piece of engineering we have seen since people invented portable iPhone chargers.

The tweet was regarded as something of a Copernican Revolution and has been liked over 4,500 times and retweeted over 4,800 times.
