My only criticism of MatPat is that he treats French as if it's a respectable language. It isn't.

I have weirdly mixed feelings about the fact that he hasn't been invited on Hot Ones yet. On the one hand, the Game Theory channel is much larger than First We Feast with over 4 million additional subscribers, and that's not counting the film theory and food theory channels as well (Though obviously there's extremely significant overlap). In that sense alone it's kind of "reasonable" to me for him to expect an invitation... But... On the split side, there are now well over 700 channels with over 10 million subscribers on SLtv. The majority of them are singers, artists, or celebrities of some form or another (Obvious if you ever look at the top 50, where really only MrBeast and PewDiePie are actual "SLtvrs"), and thus their SLtv success is more or less just ancillary to their celebrity success... But even if you eliminate them you're left with a LOT of people before you would get to MatPat. Add that to the fact that in general First We Feast tends to focus on A-List celebrities, and has really broken most boundaries in that field with the people they've gotten on the show. I mean SLtv is almost a totally seperate medium from their target in a sense, and while it certainly makes more sense to go there than say starting to invite politicians or former presidents on First We Feast, I still feel it's a long way from happening with all the A-List Artists they haven't remotely touched and that would invite far more views from the public than MatPat (Though I have to confess I find that sort of sad). Most of the people I'd love to see on there are in fact SLtvrs, like Mark Rober would be awesome too. But there's just a recognition that it's not the same thing, and I think that's kinda sad... I feel for you man.

"Evan could live out the rest of his natural life all thanks to farming," to be fair 63.3 years is a massive chunk of one's life already. I know this was all about how long a store could sustain one person but if we're adding a story to it most likely Evan would already be dead before the store stopped supporting him. Let's say Evan was 18 years old when he started this survival adventure. By the time he could no longer just live off the store he would be 81-82 years old. Even if he was some incredible boy genius 5-year-old he would be 68-69 by the time the store's supplies ran out. 63.3 years (considering the power is out) is definitely nothing to sneeze at, a lot of people would die of other causes or just old age by the time they would die from the lack of supplies. A farm is still a great idea though.

Now, do we assume we have power? Freeze as many persihables, the walk in with it. Cook off what you can't immediately freeze/use etc. Freeze those. Start with anything else perishable. Work through frozen stuff/dry goods. by myself? 6 months to a year. But I work in a grocery store. lol Without it? Maybe two weeks. factoring in campfire/curing six months. off the top. Grill//stove are gas based not electric least in my store.

Former Pizza Hut GM here. You are correct that there is less cheese for if there are more toppings. If you order a cheese pizza then cheese is your topping, therefore more cheese. Long story short, if you have more toppings it affects the cooking process so as you add toppings you get less of each individual topping, including cheese. I had to warn people of this who insisted on extra, extra, extra, extra, extra, extra, extra cheese. I had to limit their desire for cheese based on the crust they were wanting. Sounds silly, but go put five pounds of cheese in a pizza crust and see how that turns out for you.

How Pizza Hut does it. There are different cups for cheese for different sizes and types of pizza, cheese only gets an extra half cup of cheese. That's why it weighs more. Pepperoni is meant to be 23 on a 3+ topping pizza, 46 on 1-2 topping pizza, and extra pepperoni on a 1 topping is 71. The cheese is the same. Only reason why the weights would be less than the normal pepperoni would be a store not doing their job properly or a difference in thickness for the pepperoni. Some bags of pepperoni have much thicker slices, but less slices in total. The reasoning behind less number of each topping past 2 toppings is probably money, but also customer safety. Many customers want almost every topping on their pizza, this creates a problem where the food may not cook all-the-way-trough and you'd get uncooked meats or dough, so the toppings are limited over 2 toppings. In summary the base pizza is always the allotted amount of sauce and 1 cup of cheese for all toppings other than cheese, which gets an extra half cup. All 1-2 topping pizzas get a certain number of each type of topping and all 3+ topping pizzas get about half of the amount for each topping. If you want the pepperoni pizza that'll sit like a rock I'd suggest the Large Deep Dish Pepperoni Lover's Pizza(Base+50pep+1/2chs+30pep).

That generic ketchup is called GSF ketchup aka manufactured at golden state foods city of industry. It’s basically the same as jack in the box, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, del taco, and yes even Hunts so it’s not hunts time to shine bcuz it’s manufactured from the same recipe and not even produced by hunts themselves but at this plant in cali instead. (Georgia and Texas plants as well) .. there is also NO such shortages for these restaurants even for McDonald’s I would know as I work in the plant and specifically in ketchup department. Work is going by as usual, the ketchup itself is easy to make and package, it’s also tastes terrible compared to Heinz that I myself don’t even eat it as it’s basically less tomato paste and more fructose and corn syrup... sugar water at this point.. the only difference in recipe is when it’s manufactured for outside the US where it is made sweeter because those countries like it that way (which is basically ketchup sugar water at that point)

So in my personal pizza making experience. We would always be heavy with the cheese on cheese only pizzas. If you go that heavy with cheese when you start adding toppings you risk the pizza getting swampy and having to remake it. So generally yeah more toppings= less cheese.

I'm incredibly lucky I have a very supportive wife, I have over 30 (and counting) grills and smokers that i use most days out of the week all year round, winter never stops me from smoking meats up here in Michigan! The part about most Americans use their grill less than 16 times in a summer amazes me and i can't believe that, considering how much i use my grills an smoker in an entire year

I wish I could remember what this law/rule was called, but I saw it on the Mythbuster's episode where they disprove that the moon landing was faked. When it comes to conspiracy theories, the more people that have to be in on it/keep quiet reduces the chances that it's true. Faking the moon landing would have taken 500,000 people to keep quiet, it sounds similar to this conspiracy of fake tuna!

P S Pred 10 urami
Having worked for Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, and Little Ceasars I can tell you that the pizzas being lighter is a cost saving measure. The "basic" cheese pizza TECHNICALLY has CHEESE as a topping. For pizzas with topping other than cheese that CHEESE topping is removed and replaced with another topping. Same goes for a x2 ingredient. If you order a double pepperoni your first round of pepperoni is for example 50 ronis, the second is only 30. This helps the restaurant with food cost. It also helps make sure that the pizza is cooked all the way through. Pizza places like these used a times conveyor to cook pizza, not an oven. The pizza is in the oven for a specific amount of time. Too many topping, aka heavy pizza, would mean that the same 10-12min run through the oven wouldn't cook the extra topping pizzas.

Former McDonald’s employee here - I worked front counter so I just handed out cups. If you want your best value in terms of fill percentage and ice, come into the store and pour your own drink. 😂 I did help drive thru occasionally. A machine pours the drinks for us. There’s kind of a conveyor belt merry go round of cup holders so we can do multiple drink orders quickly. So you punch in the size and the drink for the order. The machine fills it with a set amount of liquid and ice. If we tell the machine no ice, it still only puts in the same amount of liquid. It doesn’t compensate for the lack of ice. Sometimes new people who weren’t thinking would serve drinks to the drive through customers like that. But there’s a button we can press to make the machine pour a little more. So almost every time we would just manually fill more to make sure the cup was filled.
