America Revealed: Pizza Delivery | PBS UK (c'mon, take a peek)
http://www.youtube.com ^ | June 20, 2012

This is simply a short video that everyone should see, in order to appreciate the power of the free market. After all, Domino's Pizza started in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with the promise to deliver its pizza in 30 minutes or less ("fewer," for those of you who know English). Just look where it all has gone. Wow.

Remember, pizza doesn’t represent the “real” economy. :)

I had a girlfriend in Windsor who went to pizza college in Ann Arbor back when she was a youngster living in Toronto.

She probably made something of herself, too, whereas I scoffed at the Domino’s folks and worked in party stores. Look where it got me.

In the 80’s when my small business was struggling, I paid my employees by working a second job at Pizza Hut.

It also kept me fed.

I have no idea what a Pizza cost in the US, but we now have a new pizza delivery in my small town on Cebu.
Alberto’s, with free delivery.
They have about 20 varieties using Mozzarella.
11 inch pizzas cost $3.50 for an all pepperoni up to
$6.00 for a “Full House”.
We have had several of the Full House pizzas...quite nice.
Other items, including ice cream, are available.
It comes by motorcycle in less then 30 min from time of order.
The delivery boy is quite happy to get a 10 peso (20 cent) tip.

Thanks for posting the link. In the last year, I moved to within walking distance of a Domino’s. I hadn’t had one of their pizza’s in years. They’ve turned it into pizza crack. It needs it’s own food category because it’s not like any normal pizza I’ve had. I’ve never been a white sauce pizza fan, but that’s all we order now, move over Hawaiian- white sauce, bacon and diced tomatoes...nom, nom, nom.

The volume of late-night pizza deliveries to the Pentagon foretell the fate of entire nations.

We hadn’t had Domino’s in years until my daughter started working at one. She reallly enjoys it but quit last week to work at a Christian camp for the summer. They may take her back in the fall

“The volume of late-night pizza deliveries to the Pentagon foretell the fate of entire nations.”

And to think that WWIII could rest on the shoulders of the pizza delivery guy!

“Have you tried a BK bacon sundae yet?”

No, we don’t eat much fast food in this house and I’m not a fan of sweets, however I did have a bacon, peanut butter, hot dog for dinner. I was disappointed to Google and find out it wasn’t an original idea. It was pretty good. What’s not to love about 3 proteins and 1 carb that includes bacon? Please tell me it’s allowed on some diet! Ohhh, just had a thought- maybe I should make my new diet drinking bacon vodka....

Love the etch-a-sketch comment. In any case that is a motivated business.

You're as bad as the Obama administration, revealing our military secrets! Now they'll have to stage late night pizza deliveries at random times to throw off our enemies... the Pentagon as corporate welfare for pizza companies.

You aren't working for Dominos are you? :-)

Less and fewer.

Ahem! I think that the wording of the ad is actually correct. Less is for non-discrete amounts: less salt, less water, less courage. Fewer is for discrete items: fewer grains, fewer bottles of water, fewer people.

Measures of distance and time, for example, are arbitrary measures on a scale, not discrete (counted) items. So, I would argue, we would refer to less time, and also time less than a certain measure (whether in days, hours, minutes, &c.) In measuring time, one is not counting discrete lumps or objects, but merely points on a continuous scale.

less time, fewer minutes

But I see your point. I will spend the day pondering it (only because I'm working a booth at a show today, and I will be bored).
