What’s the best way to open an Oreo? Committed scientists at MIT decided to find out.It doesn’t matter how fast you twist — the creme will stick to one side 80 percent of the time, they found. Unfortunately, the MIT study results weren’t replicated by the Netherlands’ University of Groningen, but that may be because the Europeans twisted by hand, while the US researchers twisted via machine.
Or, of course, European Oreos are different from USian. Which, as it happens, is true. Now, whether those differences lead to this change, well…..so where’s the research grant to find out?
