Its the weight of a compressed bald eagle.  So that's still pretty big.

Super Chronic: thurstonxhowell: kronicfeld: What is the new serving size for Internet pedantry?

Is it pedantry to point out that the truth is the opposite of what someone is saying? The difference between the headline is not subtle.

Now people are even arguing about what is and isn't pedantry. This thread truly raises the bar.


Technically, I think the floor under the bar has been lowered.

I'm not a fancy man. I like Kraft Mac and Cheese and those frozen pierogies. I like the $1.50 Costco hot dogs. But I think I have just a tiny bit too much pride to ever say

"Can I get a mega jug of coke?"

Theaetetus: the old problem of serving sizes that included a tenth of a bagel.


FTFA:

Like the toaster pastry, the current serving size of a bagel is 55g. To test what that meant, we picked up a bag of Toufayan's classic plain bagels at a local deli, each of which weighed in at about 95g. If we wanted to have 'one serving', that would mean eating the bottom half of a bagel, and a little more than a tenth of the top.

The current labels address 58% of the bagel, not 10%.

So really, reading comprehension all around.
