A Large Pizza Feeds You More Than TWO Mediums, According To Math

There has always been a firm belief in my heart that more is better, at least when it comes to pizza. While I didn’t think my core pizza beliefs would be turned upside down going into work today, I’m pleased to discover that math has finally played a role in my adult life outside of calculating tip. So how does math factor into pizza?

A recent tweet has been circling social media that’s been blowing the minds of pizza lovers across the Internet, BroBible reports.

Fermat’s Library, a platform for illuminating academic papers, posted the pizza meme a week ago and it has since garnered more than 32,000 retweets and 74,000 likes since.

Here’s why it’s so mind blowing.

By means of a mathematical equation, the image proves that a single 18-inch pizza actually yields more pie than two 12-inch pizzas by calculating the area of both pies.

Like many on Twitter have pointed out, they (myself included) have been ignorantly spending more money on medium pizzas than they should have.

I eagerly shared this game-changing discovery with my colleague, Constantine.

“It’s just simple geometry, man.” said Foodbeast’s resident food scientist. “I could’ve told you that in middle school.”

Tight.

So the next time you’re trying to feed a hungry group, or simply trying to save some money with your pizza order, know that ordering a single large is definitely cheaper than ordering two mediums, but will ultimately yield you more food.

Burger King’s Response To The Miss Universe Fiasco Was Pretty Savage

BK-Crown-Tweet

This past Sunday, the world watched as the wrong winner was mistakenly announced at the conclusion of the Miss Universe pageant. Host Steve Harvey had read the wrong name and named 1st runner up Miss Colombia the winner, when it was Miss Philippines who won the title. Burger King tweeted a hilarious response to the whole fiasco.

The fast food chain posted Monday a photo of their cardboard crown being placed on someone’s head along with the caption: At BK everyone gets to keep their crown.

Pretty brutal, Burger King. Check out the original video from the competition. Ariadna Gutierrez Arevalo, Miss Colombia, had the honor of wearing the crown for a whole FOUR MINUTES before it was removed from her head. It was then placed on Miss Philippines’, Pia Alonzo Wurzbach, head.

Dominos-Emoji-Tweet

Domino’s sure goes out of its way to make ordering pizzas ridiculously easy. In a recent Twitter announcement by the pizza chain, customers can now order themselves a pie by simply tweeting an emoji.

Three guesses which emoji.

By tweeting the “Pizza” emoji to @Dominos, the restaurant will deliver a pizza to you. All customers have to do is sign up for the online Domino’s Profile and they can start getting easy-order pizzas. Once tweeted, Domino’s will send them a confirmation of their order and a pizza should be on the way.

CEO Patrick Doyle told USA Today that this process is the “epitome of convenience” and that the brand whittled it down to a five-second process.

KFC Japan’s Offering a Free All-You-Can-Eat Fried Chicken Trip to Osaka? #YOLO

In case you just can’t get enough of the Colonel’s deep fried, finger-lickin’ good goodness stateside, why not tweet your way to a free fried chicken eating tour in Japan?

Oh, because the prize is only redeemable by non-KFC employees and people who actually live there? Well, I guess that makes sense.

But for all you YOLO-ing Mayan Doomsdayers, listen up. For the holidays, KFC Japan is running a twitter contest for a free, most-expenses-paid eating trip to Osaka. Just tweet “#KFC食べ放題ツアーin大阪”(KFC All-You-Can-Eat Tour in Osaka) as many times as you want, and on December 20, three lucky winners will be taken along with a guest to the KFC restaurant in Onobaru, Osaka.

Now, since the contest ends on the 20th (the 19th here), here’s what you should do. Renew your passport, move to Japan today, find a sponsor, become a citizen and spend the rest of your time learning Japanese and tweeting. Best of all, if you charge the trip and the world does end, you won’t ever have to pay it back.

YO-freaking-LO.
