Oh, the Pastabilities (that's not just a strand of spaghetti)

Did you know there's a lot you can do with a piece of spaghetti besides covering it with meat sauce?

Don't have a toothpick handy while baking? Use a piece of spaghetti to check for doneness. Just insert and if it comes out clean, your baked goods are done.

Need a longer match to light your hot water heater? Light the end of a piece of spaghetti to reach your pilot light.

Have a drink in an extra tall glass that needs stirring? Use a piece of spaghetti to reach all the way to the bottom.

A piece of completely useless PastaTriviality - if you bend a piece of uncooked pasta until it breaks it will always break in 3 or more pieces.

Something to test out if you are REALLY bored.

Aha! So when you sword fight, you'll end up with lots of pieces.

Anyway, I've heard this before and think the physics is that as the spaghetti stand is bent, the stresses resonate from end to end and blah blah blah...

Anyway, in real life, I don't see this. I almost always break my spaghetti in half before cooking. When you grasp a handful and hold firmly with both hands, it must keep the strands from resonating because I only see a few small "third" pieces when broken - probably the outside strands.

Hmmm...I'll have to do a science experiment. Maybe during my next batch of lo mein.
