Our hearts go out to anyone in the world who’s trying to thread a needle right now. They’re probably squinting their eyes, getting in real close, and desperately hoping the wettened end of the thread will do as they wish before being once again thwarted by the cruel whims of its fibers.
At least, that WAS the case before Twitter user John Bick shared this YouTube video from Honeybee, showing the world a lifehack that could very well change all our lives:
Twitter users were astounded:
Good grief. After 50 years of going cross-eyed 😢— D Bell 🏴 (@Bell32796) April 3, 2018

This is what social media should be about. People sharing helpful ideas about what they actually know.— Atlassheepdog (@atlassheepdog) April 4, 2018
We’ve wasted so much time…for nothing!
After Sewing professionally for over 45 years, I could not for the life of me thread my needle like this young man. Spit works better!— Mary Lou Prillaman (@coolmadre) December 16, 2018

Going forward, into a brave new world, our threads will go through the eye of the needle effortlessly!
I was just about to say exactly the same thing. The amount of time I've spent threading needles in my lifetime could have been shortened substantially!— LadyJCMuses (@LadyJCMuses) April 5, 2018

Even celebrities like Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander couldn’t help but express their amazement!
I saw this too this morning and it blew my mind. This should be included in the human starter pack.— Peter Cassizzi (@Cassizzi) April 4, 2018
First life changing tweet. I’m a little terrified.— George Penzenik (@PenzenikGeorge) April 4, 2018
Someone should have told us about this years ago.
Damnit the Matrix should’ve plugged this in a long time ago. Thanks— arghya (@arghyam6) April 4, 2018

And to all of those who haven’t been fortunate enough to watch the video, we offer our condolences and an alternate life hack:
