The science journalist’s job is simple: find the news, report the news. But sometimes, it’s even simpler. Sometimes, the news finds the journalist. Today is one of those days. Today is the day we solve the age-old question: is my throat strong or sharp enough to cut a spaghetti noodle in half?
In this investigation, I’ll take you through the steps of the scientific method (which we’re sure you, like me, once pretended to know, so this should be easy for all of us) as we investigate whether my throat is strong enough to cut spaghetti.
