  • ‘Self-control is an exhaustible resource’
    “Psychologists have discovered that self-control is an exhaustible resource. And I don’t mean self-control only in the sense of turning down cookies or alcohol, I mean a broader sense of self-supervision—any time you’re paying close attention to your actions, like when you’re having a tough conversation or trying to stay focused on a paper you’re writing. This helps to explain why, after a long hard day at the office, we’re more likely to snap at our spouses or have one drink too many—we’ve depleted our self-control.”

    The comments on the Pie Iron Unitasker post are amazing. Who would have thought that this one item would stir so much dissenting feedback. Perhaps the occasional red herring should be posted to stir the pot, or a controversial item to engender debate.

    It turns out the device is popular enough to share a Wikipedia page with the modern appliance which has also been lampooned: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandwich_toaster
