Did you know this: The average speed of Heinz ketchup leaving the bottle is 25 miles per year.
is there nothing that can be done? We have Memorial Day Weekend cookouts to attend and that sounds like we could spend all weekend waiting to kethcup-ize our burgers, brats and hot dogs.
Oh wait, here comes the science.
Thanks to the creaitve minds at the Massachusetts Institute Of Technology, we might be able to speed this process up. Six MIT researchers say they've solved the problem as part of an entrepreneurship competition. The result is a bottle coated with "LiquiGlide," a non-toxic material so slippery that the ketchup or for that matter mayonnaise just glides out when you turn it over.
Oddly enough, watching the ketchup slide makes me a little queasy.
