This Is The Mind-Blowing Reason Your Spaghetti Spoon Has A Hole In It

You probably never paid too much attention, but spaghetti spoons have giant holes in the center of them -- why? Is it for draining purposes or is it the result of an unintentional mistake by the mastermind behind its existence?

Well, luckily for the internet, we now know what that spaghetti spoon hole actually does.

According to a post by Imgur user PolarChi, the mysterious hole is used to measure the perfect serving size for a single plate of spaghetti. It's basically a built-in life hack that no one ever tells you about...

Perhaps because they had no idea either!
