From Quoctrung Bui and Planet Money comes this fun chart explaining why ordering the larger pizza is worth it:
This makes sense to me only because even if I’m not that hungry one of my favorite things is cold pizza the next day straight out of the fridge.
This doesn’t quite work at the movie theater, where they’re like, “You can get the larger size for just 50 cents more!” because I’m not going to be in the mood for stale popcorn later, or will ever be in the mood to drink a gallon of Diet Coke.
Hah, um, did anyone else get pizza last night after reading about the guy who eats nothing but pizza?
Update:: “The Price Of A Pizza In 237 U.S. Neighborhoods,” which is super interesting.
