Spit Hot Fire.

Ever wondered how all those pre-packaged sandwiches at the gas station all got cut so perfectly in half? No? We don't blame you there. But the answer, it turns out — robots! — is probably a little more exciting than you might have imagined.

Check out these .gifs and videos of ultrasonic sandwich cutting machines at work. It's way more mesmerizing than it sounds.

As cool as watching magic blades slice up stale sandwiches is, though, it's likely still not going to be the high point of your week. To that end, here's a couple dozen or so things to do this week you're bound to find infinitely more thrilling.
