  1. Oreo-Separating Genius David Neevel on His New MTV Other Show Practically Useful

    David Neevel is what MacGyver strives to be.

    David Neevel likes to build things, but he doesn't like the creme in the middle of Oreos. That's why he built a machine that removes it with a hatchet. It was one of a series of videos Oreo released showing interesting ways to separate the creme and the cookie.

    David Neevel doesn't like the creme in the middle of Oreos, so he built a machine to remove it. Even though his stance on Oreo creme is horribly, tragically, and completely misguided you have to respect a guy who takes action to get what he wants, or to eliminate what he doesn't want as the case may be. Neevel is a physicist from Portland who is the type of person who sees a problem and solves it -- with a hatchet-wielding robot -- because that's how you freaking get things done.
