What? You think my reductio technique is sloppy?
You object to my introduction of the Triple-Double when it wasn’t stated in the set up of the proof? You think that chocolate filling is the problem and so you question my results?
You have a point on that first count. But the second count? Come on! Seriously?!? The calorie count of a chocolate filling is gonna be substantially different from that of a vanilla filling? Please.
Go check the Nutrition Facts on Vanilla Oreos, and then we’ll talk.
While you’re driving to the grocery store (or walking to your pantry), here’s some more data.
I weighed 10 of each kind of cookie.
- 10 regular Oreos weighed 113 grams
- 10 Double Stuf Oreos weighed 145 grams
- 10 Triple-Double Oreos weighed 210 grams
I solved the regular/Triple-Double system and concluded that each wafer weighs about 1.7 grams and each unit of stuf is about 8 grams.
Using my new assumption-that Double Stuf is not double stuff and a side calculation (complicated, but interesting) which suggests that Double Stuf is really stuff, the solution to the regular/Triple-Double system is consistent with the solution to the regular/Double Stuf system.
And that means the Oreo below is not a duoseptuagenuple stuf Oreo, Doc Blades’ claim notwithstanding. Nope, that bad boy isn’t any better than unopentuagenuple.
UPDATE: I corrected “vanilla filling” to “chocolate filling” in paragraph 3. Also, further objections (beyond those noted above) have been raised in the Twitterverse. I’ll update these in a new post shortly.
Meantime, y’all know how to comment on a blog, right?
