Can You Open This Cupboard Without Breaking the Plates?

Interesting Engineering

When in doubt, ask the Internet for help. That's what one frustrated mother did with her household issue.

The photo shows a large pile of fine porcelain plates slipping off the shelf and leaning on the glass door. If one opened the glass door without preparation, the porcelain could easily break. The picture, posted to Baoliao Commune, a Taiwan Facebook group, garnered significant attention. Internet users chimed in with plenty of suggestions.

"Sell it to the museum and name it the 'Frozen in Time' series," one commenter said. They weren't the only one to suggest abandoning the cabinet entirely.

Others suggested preparing to catch inevitably falling plates. Facebook user Tseng Shao-Tsen said in the post "A cupboard that can never be opened."

The woman did manage to effectively open the door and keep all plates intact, according to MailOnline.
