We don’t need a reason to eat more pizza, but we’ll take one anyway. From pizza’s ability to predict the price of the NYC subway to lycopene-saturated tomato sauce (good for you!), this interesting list from Buzzfeed will provide at least one reason for you to have another slice. Or ten.
According to the Pizza Principle, a loose law proposed by a New York lawyer back in the 1980s, the slice of a pizza has predicted the price of a subway ride since the ‘60s. Whether the parallel is alive is still debated, but pizza’s power as a barometer is indisputable.
