STOR­AGE HACK FAB OR FAKE?

Oc­ca­sion­ally, the Twit­ter uni­verse throws out a the­ory so left field that we don’t know whether to slam it as to­tally ridicu­lous or sud­denly won­der how we lived this long with­out know­ing this tit­bit of in­for­ma­tion.

This week, one user made us run to the freezer and stare at it in com­plete be­wil­der­ment.

“How old were you when you found out the lines at the bot­tom of the freezer were made to stand the meat trays up?” the tweeter named I Love Ap­ple Juice posted.

The mind-blow­ing ques­tion, or state­ment, de­pend­ing on which side of the fence you’re on, cap­tions two pic­tures of trays of meat lined up per­fectly along the ridges.

The post has had a huge re­ac­tion, be­ing retweeted more than 11,000 times, with many fol­low­ers agree­ing with the the­ory.

“We’ve been adult­ing wrong,” one replied.

“Now that makes sense,” an­other com­mented.

Some weren’t so quick to get on the meat-tray band­wagon, point­ing out that any blood in the pack­ets would pool at the bot­tom.

An­other ar­gued that the the­ory didn’t ac­count for meat trays in dif­fer­ent sizes. Some had an­swers of their own. “Doubt it – more like air cir­cu­la­tion so your stuff doesn’t stick to the bot­tom,” one read.

An­other agreed. “It is. My dad was a white goods me­chanic, it’s what he al­ways said. It’s for cold cir­cu­la­tion.”

Who­ever is right, we think we’ve found a new way to or­gan­ise the fridge.
