People love eating pizza, but every style of pie has a different consistency. If “New York-style” — thin, flat, and large — is your texture of choice, then you’ve probably eaten a slice that was as messy as it was delicious. Colm Kelleher outlines the scientific and mathematical properties that make folding a slice the long way the best alternative … to wearing a bib.

Talk by Colm Kelleher, animation by Joel Trussell.

  1. This is a terrible video. It doesn't actually explain anything. It just says "because math." It never actually went into the physics or math. It just said a folded slice can't droop…untrue. I've folded slices of pizza and had the tip droop down. Explain that one, slice.
