    FFS - pizza is the original handy snack. I can understand cutting it in to 6 pieces for a 9" or at most 8 slices for a 12 inch or larger pizza. Want it smaller to make it easier to handle? Fold it.

    I did my training while there was still a mix of tradesmen who were trained in feet & inches and others who were metric. Thanks to that I can pretty easily switch between both.
