High speed cucumber slicing

This is probably not a very intelligent post, but who is to judge what is intelligent and what is not...

Yesterday evening I had a cucumber in my dinner. Split it into halves lengthwise, and then sliced the halves.

At full speed, I managed to cut one half into 35 slices in 6 seconds.

To produce 35 slices means 34 cuts, and that would translate into 5.7 cuts per second, or 5.7Hz.

In comparison, the C note corresponds to 440Hz.
