Isn't it weird how we make round pizzas, delivered in square boxes, just to cut them into little triangles before eating.
@fribbledom Now that you say it out loud... hahaha
@fribbledom Hitboxes are still called hitboxes even when they're round
@fribbledom haha normies I eat trapezoid pizzas
@fribbledom Yes, that is weird. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
@fribbledom Don't forget the shapes that you process them out to.
@fribbledom weirder how we've turned cheap street food into something artisan and expensive.
@fribbledom Around here we have a pizza place that makes rectangular pizzas cut into rectangles or squares that fill the boxes and another place that cuts the round pizzas into little parallelograms.
@fribbledom you can have square pizza, but...
@fribbledom a sector of a circle is not a triangle. cmon. :P
@fribbledom when I was a kid, we used to get carryout from Pizza Hut in Wichita, Kansas (where the chain began). The round pizza rested on a cardboard circle and the whole thing was contained in a paper *cone* that one carried by the point, with the pizza-on-cardboard suspended inside and below.
Those are all the same shape according to Topology, a branch of Mathematics.
@Tau_Leonis @fribbledom A topologist is a mathematician who can't tell the difference between a coffee mug and a donut :) http://www.demonstrations.wolfram.com/CoffeeMugToDonut/
@fribbledom this hurt my feelings
@fribbledom not as weird as it would be if we made triangular pizzas, put them in circular boxes, and cut them into squares.
@fribbledom Little Caesar's thought so.
@fribbledom Nah, easier to make a square box, easier to make a round pizza and easier to eat triangular slices.
@fribbledom I guess the gaps it leaves at the corners in the square box, makes it easier to take out the first slices.
As for pizza slicing technique; isn't square-cut a thing for Chicago style pizzas?
Personally I have to try this #monohedral disc tiling technique next time: https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn28743-mathematicians-invent-new-way-to-slice-pizza-into-exotic-shapes/
Also, #Grandiosa here in Norway sells a rectangular pizza: http://manneblogg.no/testgrandiosa-hjemmelaget-pizza/
@fribbledom YOU GOTTA TRY DETROIT STYLE 'ZA MY DUDE
@gamehawk I could only read the title, but it already made me laugh 😆
@fribbledom I think what it boils down to is: Chuck E. Cheese crust is the opposite of crispy and so when they cut it the excessive outer crust shifts around, then the cheese sets up a bit and the pizza looks like you've Frankensteined a bunch of random slices together.
@fribbledom you have a good point here lol 😂
