How do you split a pizza in half – along the Equator or down the International Dateline? We were in Cambridge, England, visiting Darcy (Mark’s cousin) and her husband, Kelly.
They took us to a lovely musical program at the Round Church in Cambridge after which we had a beer at the Student Union (Discount with the music program secret code), followed by pizza and beer at a local pub.
Kelly and Darcy shared a pizza and couldn’t agree on which half of the pizza belonged to whom. Kelly says pizzas are split across the middle. Each person takes the half closest to that person – north or south of the equator. Darcy insisted pizzas are split from top to bottom. Each person takes the left or right side of the pizza. After a long debate with all four of us involved, no settlement was reached but the pizza somehow disappeared.
How do you split a pizza? Of course, if the pizza has different ingredients on the two sides, this isn’t an issue!
