You know how your face gets all messy when you eat a slice or quarter wedge of watermelon? Of course you do (I know I do). It starts out clean, but when you get closer to the rind, things can get a little out of control.
Of course, that messiness is part of the charm and joy of eating watermelon slices — and a little watermelon juice on your cheek isn’t all that bad in the grand scheme of things — but if you want to clean up your act a little, go ahead and check out the video below. The secret: Just two small cuts to the rind. It’s really that simple.
The video is made by a very funny and entertaining man who calls himself the “Crazy Russian Hacker.” His objective: to shed some light on some of life’s best hacks. Other videos by the Crazy Russian Hacker include “How to Open a Can Without a Can Opener,” the right way to fry an egg and a collection of five life hacks that opens with a tip about cutting perfect watermelon cubes.
So, will I start cutting my watermelon slices differently based on this lesson? Maybe, maybe not (but probably not). Like I said, I don’t mind a little watermelon juice. What about you? Will you give this trick a try?
