    One of those "ohhhhhhhhhhhh" moments

    At age 39, I have finally figured out how to successfully use that thumb-hole on the Kraft mac & cheese box.

    Anyone else have a late bloomer story to share?

    Yes, this is what the off-season has reduced me to.

    At 33 I am pretty sure that spot is a trick. I guess I have 6 more years to figure it out and it's not just a mass defection of packaging on Kraft's end.

    Re: One of those "ohhhhhhhhhhhh" moments

    It took me until I was around 16 to realize the thing on the side of vikings helmets was supposed to be a horn. When I was young someone told me it was a whale and for some reason I stuck with that for a long time.

    On a thread a couple years ago, I finally understood the tornado logo for cyclonefanatic was also a CF

    Huh.... I guess you missed the fact that you can open the box at the top. Suckers use the quasi thumb hole anyway.

    Not that I ever looked at the logo closely, but I never noticed that either.

    Woah, back the **** up! Are you telling me that all these years of NOT eating Kraft Mac&Cheese because I could never open the box could have all been full of cheese-like powdery bliss simply by opening the box in a manner that is easy and effective? Man, it's been 22 years. Tomorrow is already a good day.

    True story - the same people that make that thumb hole punch make the Capris Sun straw hole as well.

    Re: One of those "ohhhhhhhhhhhh" moments

    i'm ashamed to say that i used to follow the directions on the box and precisely measure the amount of water that I put in the pot when boiling the macaroni.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Up until about 22 I never realized that in a porta-potty there was a side pee space for guys. True story.
