Two small dishes of ice cream equal one regular dish of ice cream, right? RIGHT?

FALSE!
Its well known that the small of a range of sizes is always less then half of the medium size and the large is never double the medium size.

It usually takes two plus smalls to make a regular or medium size dish of ice cream. But it only takes a regular and an half to make a large bowl of ice cream.

I blame marketing for the deception.

From the corner store soda fountain drinks are 12 oz for small, 26 oz for medium and 32 for the large.

So eat up your ice cream!

You've never seen what I consider to be a "regular" dish of ice cream.

One side of my family is crazy mad for ice cream. My Uncle and my Grandfather did an ice cream challenge and each put away almost an half gallon each in one sitting. I have a very warped view of "regular" already.

I'm not sure how much a half-gallon is, but I once put away two litres of spumoni in one sitting. That may be why I'm lactose-intolerant now.

(There are two pictures of me on Facebook taken during SFX in 2007, noshing on something called "dessert nachos". It was an enormous pile of pastry shaped like nachos and an even more enormous scoop of ice cream. Good thing it was much lighter than it looked.)

You seem to be asking a lot questions lately where you imply the answers you are wanting to receive. You are scoring quite high on "pathetic attempts at blatant manipulation of the data". There's probably a quiz somewhere that would show you worked in the Bush administration's Department of Anti-science, er I mean Education.
