New: Research You Must Read

Where\'s the other spoon?

I’m introducing a new line of posts at TTW: Research You Must Read. We’ll start with research directly applicable to the work day. This article contains information most of us, if not all, can relate to.

The case of the disappearing teaspoons: longitudinal cohort study of the displacement of teaspoons in an Australian research institute

Seriously though, there will be research articles and reports you may want to look at. I heard there’s research being done on using spoons to cut bread. Not sure how that’s going to turn out. It looks promising for those who suffer from Aichmophobia.

  2. I love this!- I don’t use teaspoons at work- my problem is finding a fork when I bring in leftovers!
