A very niche skill

A very niche skill.

What would you do if someone told you that you had to cut up 100 watermelons? Personally, I would cry, and then, if that didn’t get me out of the task, I would just run. But not the Fruit Ninja. No, he would just say, “Give me 10 minutes.” Because the Fruit Ninja can cut up a watermelon in 20 seconds. Yes. If you don’t believe me, just watch.

OK, it’s 21 seconds. And you would need like a few seconds to gear up for the next one. So it might take 20 minutes. But still. It’s pretty amazing. If you care about cutting up watermelon fast.
