They’re hella bigger than I realized.

An RQ-4 Global Hawk was lost off the coast of southern Spain in June of this year, and the wreckage was recovered only recently. That’s a loss of about $123 million, and the cause of the crash has not been released to date.

Stop the madness.

The hole diameter shrank 5/8″ in 10 years, 4/8″ the next decade. At that rate, donut holes should have disappeared by 1958 and should be negative 7/8″ in diameter by now.

π [(7/8″)/2]^2 = .60 sq. inches, so 7 decades later, donuts should have no holes and be larger in diameter, but if you define the circumference of the section of the torus as a constant k you realize that donuts don’t come in uniform sizes, yet they should be significantly larger than they were 70 years ago. Hostess and Little Debbie got some ‘splainin’ to do. Cake donuts typically weigh between 24 and 28 g (0.85 and 0.99 oz), whereas yeast-raised donuts average 38 g (1.3 oz) and are generally larger, and taller (due to rising) when finished. Say a donut weighed an ounce in 1927. That means the volume of the torus would be Oh nevermind.


This is what a lot of Californians are discussing now that pot is legal.
