A burger is an essential part of our daily lives. It has pretty much become an everyday story. But many times we find ourselves spilling the ingredients all over ourselves. This happens more often than not. Very often we find ourselves embarrassed at a restaurant when with burger ingredients strewn all over our tables. No, there is no denying it because it has happened to everyone. You will be surprised to know that you might have been eating your burger the wrong way all along. It may be more appalling but there is a scientifically proven method to hold a burger.

Science has infiltrated this field as well. You must learn to hold your burger this way in order to keep yourself from getting embarrassed in public and to avoid unnecessary frustration. As a matter of fact, eating should be something joyful and easy. Once you know the technique, rest assured you will have a good time munching on a burger.

Having touched upon why you need to know this technique, we must move on to the intricacies of it. Without much further flattery, let us seek how to not get embarrassed by the steps that follow: 

The grip 

You must keep in mind that holding a burger tightly may be very helpful but holding it too tight can turn out to be a mess in itself as you may end up crushing contents apart from ruining the bun. 

Warm up 

A delicacy like burger is a huge thing for our feeble mouths. So you must practice before gulping down a burger. Open your empty mouth as much wide as can be possible then close it. Repeat it a number of times so that your muscles can be ready to take on a burger. 

Holding the burger properly 

This is the tenor of this article. There have been researches and the method that stands out is by using your thumbs and pinky fingers. Your hold the burger with your pinky fingers and thumb supporting the burger at the bottom; and the remaining three fingers of both the hands on the top side of it. This method works in the way such that the pinky fingers do not let the contents of the burger spill out from the back side. This issue has been the highlight of your frustration to say the least. 

Another important tip for holding a burger is to grab it upside down. This is particularly helpful when the bun on the bottom is thicker than that on the top. 

How science got here? 

This question is pertinent because we need to know how researchers figured out this technique. Fluid mechanics experts studied the burger for quite some time to figure out how the contents of a burger interacted with each other. The conclusion showed that the most common way was ineffective. After some attempts, they ended up with this method. 

 So next time when you go out, avoid embarrassment in public with this simple technique. You might as well start practicing it now! 


If you need a versatile tool for your day-to-day woodwork, it has to be a jigsaw. This machine is powerful and needless to mention that it comes with pretty sharp blades. A jigsaw is capable of not only cutting sheets intricately but also creating patterns that no other machine of the similar category can. You may own one and might have a reasonable hands-on experience on the machine to boast of, but are you getting the most out of your jigsaw? Let us dive further into this article to find out the ways of using a jigsaw properly. 

How well do you know your machine? 

Like any electrical device, a jigsaw also comes with an instructions manual. It is advisable that you go through it. A jigsaw consists of the following: 

  • Blade clamp and blade – A jigsaw generally has a safety mechanism to remove and change blades. 
  • The trigger switch – This switch is used to start your jigsaw. Besides, there is also a lock-on for longer works without having to push the trigger. 
  • Adjustment of the bevel – This adjustment is essential when you have to cut wooden planks at angles. A jigsaw can be used at an angle of 45 degrees. 
  • Orbital action – This feature allows you to manage the thrust provided by your jigsaw. 
  • Speed Dial – There are numerous speed settings available on your jigsaw that allow you to work with varying materials. 

 

Choosing a blade for your Jigsaw: 

Hands down, this is the most imperative part of operating a jigsaw. You need task specific blades for the best results. You may consider the following types of blades for your work: 

  • Specific blades – These blades are specially customized for a particular task and can be chosen from a variety. 
  • Narrow and wide blades  Narrow blades are considered useful when you go for curved cutting. Wider blades, on the other hand, work well for straighter cuts. 
  • The teeth – Smaller teeth work slow but give you a finer finish. Larger teeth lead to quicker cuts but the end results are rougher. 
  • Consider your shank type – You must remember that blades are Jigsaw specific as well. 

 

Effecting a cut: 

You can draw maximum advantage from your jigsaw if you follow the steps listed below: 

  • Gather the things you might need. These things are: clean workspace, clamps, measuring tools, a workbench, your safety gear, jigsaw blade and jigsaw. 
  • Attach the blade required specifically for your task. 
  • Draw markings as necessary so that you end up with a clean cut. 
  • Choose your settings on the jigsaw as required to perform the task. 
  • Let the jigsaw attain speed before you go on for the cut. 
  • Slowly and gradually move the jigsaw along the markings to carry out your work.  

 

Safety tips: 

As the jigsaw involves sharp blades, safety becomes a necessity. Consider the following tips: 

  • Ensure that you are working with a proper blade. It has not to be brittle. 
  • Make sure that your workspace is clear of all things except the plank to be cut. Sharp blades may wreck anything that comes in their way. 
  • Take care of the power cord while working with a jigsaw. 
  • Use goggles and mask to avoid exposure to dust. 

A jigsaw comes in handy for all the tasks ranging from small to large in scale. If you have any work to do, go ahead and proceed with precaution.
