When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the following mayonnaise jar story

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.Ā

When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.Ā

He then asked the students if the jar was full.Ā

They agreed that it was.Ā

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.Ā

The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.Ā

He then asked the students again if the jar was full.Ā

They agreed it was.Ā

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.Ā

Of course, the sand filled up everything else.Ā

He asked once more if the jar was full.Ā

The students responded with a unanimous āyes.āĀ

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.Ā

The students laughed..Ā

'Now,' said the professor as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important thingsā-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passionsā-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything elseā-the small stuff.Ā

'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.Ā

The same goes for life.Ā

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.Ā

Spend time with your children.Ā

Spend time with your parents.Ā

Visit with grandparents.Ā

Take your spouse out to dinner.Ā

Play another 18.Ā

There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

Take care of the golf balls firstā-the things that really matter. Set your priorities.Ā

The rest is just sand !

This legitimately upsets me.

ā¦ Yāsee, now, yāsee, Iām looking at this, thinking, squares fit together better than circles, so, say, if you wanted a box of donuts, a full box, you could probably fit more square donuts in than circle donuts if the circumference of the circle touched the each of the corners of the square donut.

So you might end up with more donuts.

But then I also thinkā¦ Does the square or round donut have a greater donut volume? Is the number of donuts better than the entire donut mass as a whole?

Hrm.

HRM.

A round donut with radius R_{1} occupies the same space as a square donut with side 2R_{1}. If the center circle of a round donut has a radius R_{2} and the hole of a square donut has a side 2R_{2}, then the area of a round donut is ĻR_{1}^{2} - Ļr_{2}^{2}. The area of a square donut would be then 4R_{1}^{2} - 4R_{2}^{2}. This doesnāt say much, but in general andĀ throwing numbers, a full box of square donuts has more donut per donut than a full box of round donuts.

The interesting thing is knowing exactly how much more donut per donut we have. Assuming first a small center hole (R_{2} = R_{1}/4) and replacing in the proper expressions, we have a 27,6% more donut in the square one (Round: 15ĻR_{1}^{2}/16Ā ā 2,94R_{1}^{2}, square: 15R_{1}^{2}/4 = 3,75R_{1}^{2}). Now, assuming a large center hole (R_{2} = 3R_{1}/4) we have a 27,7% more donut in the square one (Round: 7ĻR_{1}^{2}/16Ā ā 1,37R_{1}^{2}, square: 7R_{1}^{2}/4 = 1,75R_{1}^{2}). This tells us that, approximately, weāll have a 27% bigger donut if itās square than if itās round.

tl;dr: Square donuts have a 27% more donut per donut in the same space as a round one.

god i love this site

canāt argue with science. Heretofore, I want my donuts square.

*more donut per donut*

Itās back

I am not sure whether to laugh, cry, or start a petition for square donut.
