This Pizza Chart Schools You On 40 Different Kinds Of Pizzas

Click HERE to see the chart in all its pizza glory aka full size!

Food Republic put together this chart showing 40 types of pizza. If you think about it, it’s a pizza pie chart. But don’t think about it too hard, because it’s technically not a pie chart at all. It’s just a regular chart with pizza pies on it. A few concerns: is a calzone really considered a pizza? I thought a calzone was a calzone. Then again, what do I know? Haha! Trick question! Not much, but I do know the hell out of some pizza, that’s for sure. As for the second concern, I can’t remember. Got too hungry with all this talk about pizza. To the pizza parlor!

CAUGHT: Donut Licker Ariana Grande Says She Hates America

Ariana-Donut-Licker

Celebrities can be downright weird sometimes.

Superstar Ariana Grande was caught licking donuts at a Wolfee Donuts in California, reports the Huffington Post. TMZ obtained footage from the donut shop, which documented the entire event. With her boyfriend, Ricky Alvarez, the two were caught tongue-slapping the breakfast pastries. Then each other.

The store employee removed the tainted donuts and replaced them with a fresh batch. When Grande saw this, she responded with expletives followed by:

“I hate Americans. I hate America.”

A random end to a random situation that’s since gotten Grande into some trouble with both fans and red-blooded American. HuffPo reached out to Grande’s peeps for a comment, but have yet to receive an immediate reply.

Alarming Trends Show That We May Be the Last Generation to Enjoy Good Sushi

sushi-enjoyment

Sushi today is arguably the most popular cultured cuisine. The tasty freshness, the exotic variety and the simplistic beauty of sushi truly makes it a treasure of all foods. I mean, who hasn’t said to themselves at least once, “I could eat sushi every day, forever”?

Unfortunately, our insatiable love for sushi will be a cause of great destruction and sadness on the planet.

The problem: Sushi has become too damn popular and the fish industries are producing at unsustainable rates. The best kind of tuna, bluefin, is in such demand that the Pacific Ocean can’t support the Asian market alone, so countries like Japan, South Korea and Mexico are now moving to the Atlantic in an effort to exploit these million-dollar fish — in 2013, one 490-lb tuna fetched a record setting $1.35 million in Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market.

giant-tuna

The Atlantic bluefin tuna population, which is an endangered species, has declined by almost 100 percent in recent years. They are being caught at such a high rate that the actual fish are getting smaller because they are younger — 90 percent of those caught are too young to even reproduce, according to the NOAA Fish Watch. International organizations establish conservation methods, but no solution is simple and enforcement remains one of the largest problems, especially when the black market for bluefin tuna churns billions in illegal trade.

But it’s not just the tuna that’s at risk. In the long run, all wild-caught fish in the ocean is in danger. Back in 2010, Pavan Sukhdev, head of the UN’s Environmental Programme, explained the inevitable decline of sea life:

“If the various estimates we have received … come true, then we are in the situation where 40 years down the line we, effectively, are out of fish.”

For this, we can blame overfishing, ineffectively enforced fishing limits, pollution, climate change — humans are basically just destroying the ocean.

The consequences: By the time we 20-somethings are living it up as 60 and 70-year-olds, we may no longer be able to depend on the ocean to provide us with wild fish and other fruits of the sea.

With increasing demand and limited supply, expect the price of sushi to steadily increase. Even spicy tuna rolls may be considered an expensive delicacy one day.

By the time we are older, fish farms might ensure that sushi will still be around, but we’ll know firsthand that only real sushi is made with the best wild-caught fish. We may see the golden age of sushi end within our lifetime, and we may all surely die from the sadness.

Time for the Obvious: Americans Eat Almost 1,000 More Daily Calories Than the Rest of the World

calories

On a daily basis, the average world citizen consumes around 2,870 calories. Over here in the U.S., we consume about 3,641 calories daily. That’s 771 more calories than the world average. That would be like eating an extra Big Mac (530 calories) and a 32-ounce vanilla iced coffee (240) from McDonald’s every day.

Or about three additional slices of Pizza Hut’s hand-tossed medium pepperoni pizza (230 calories each) a day.

No surprise when you hear a stat like this. We’re constantly being called fat and by now we all know our country is a gluttonous mess, craving cheeseburger-stuffed donuts and Pizzadillas.

 

calories world

Maybe even scarier, 37 percent of Americans’ calories come from sugar and fat. That’s 17 percentage points higher than the world average, and 27 percent higher than Vietnam and North Korea, which have a lowly 10 percent daily fat and sugar intake, by far the lowest in the world.

At least it’s another thing we’re leading the world in. ‘Murica!

The World Cup has been exciting throughout and the fans of each country have passionately supported their teams.

WDOG chose Japan, Mexico, U.S., Germany, Argentina, Italy and of course Brazil, and dyed the hot dog buns in their flag’s colors. They then used ingredients that they felt represented each country and crafted some mouth watering dogs.
