Are you telling me . . .
Ah, never a good start to a conversation. On either side.
. . . that you can change
the amount of bread crust
by how you cut the bread?
Now, in theory, I understand that there is a fixed amount of crust on any given loaf of bread. Cutting technique can’t change that fixed amount and to suggest otherwise would be silly.
But, in practice, when I want more crust on a slice of baguette–and when *don’t* I?–I don’t cut those narrow rounds that just have a pathetic little bit of crust around the edge. Instead, I cut the baguette lengthwise horizontally, separating the top from the bottom, and then cut wide slices that have crust that is fully half of the piece of bread.
Similarly, when I want more sky, I head West. Not west: West.
Now, in theory, I understand that there is a fixed amount of sky. Changing location can’t change that fixed amount and to suggest otherwise would be silly.
But, in practice, when I want more sky–and when *don’t* I?–I don’t fool around with landscapes encumbered by trees or mountains. Instead, I go to the Great Plains, where the sky is fully half of the world.
The Great Plains (French: Grandes Plaines), sometimes simply “the Plains“, is a broad expanse of flatland in North America. It is located west of the Mississippi River and east of the Rocky Mountains, much of it covered in prairie, steppe, and grassland. – Wikipedia
QED. More crust.
