The Internet is alight with fevered discussions about how to organize your cutlery drawer. The picture above shows something we have never thought of. It’s a great way to fit two different sized spoons into the same spot. But the discussion continues on whether the forks go on the left or this question: “Hold up, do you place the head of the cutlery towards the drawer handle or the back of the drawer?”. So where do your forks, knives and spoons go to sleep? And what about all the other kitchen stuff?
There is a great article about this discussion on the Stuff website.

2001: A Space Odyssey is an amazing movie that although made 50 years ago still holds up incredibly. And the technology that was foretold for 2001 in some cases was spot on. And there was this infamous flatware.
