How To Split An Apple With Your Bare Hands

If you've ever wished you had superhuman strength, we're here to grant you the illusion of it. (It's the best we can do.) You don't have to practice hours of "wax on, wax off" just to chop a piece of wood in half with your hands. All you need is a minute and thirty seconds to learn about friction. And then, you'll have the power to split an apple in two with your bare hands.

Next time you want to share an apple -- because that happens all the time, right? -- but you don't have a knife, you can use your own hands to get the job done. And you get the added bonus of looking most impressive. Or, you could just bring an apple with you to parties and use your fancy trick there. With Christmas parties right around the corner, you might want to start practicing. Watch the video above.
