The Turkey Bacon Thief

After work yesterday I skidded on the ice and slush East along College St and almost slipped down the escalator into Metro, the supermarket next to College Subway Station, under College Park.  I was meant to buy paprika, brazil nuts, fish sauce and rock salt for Daniel (I asked him to cook a triple chocolate nut tart for a home-made Christmas present for my Fellowship Supervisor and he thankfully agreed).  There was no rock salt, or brazil nuts or fish sauce.  I bought paprika, mixed nuts, coarse salt and turkey bacon.  The turkey bacon is delicious.

Equitable Division of Turkey Bacon Planned by Glen, While Cooking Breakfast.

n = number of slices of turkey bacon.

G = number of slices for Glen; D = number of slices for Daniel.

G = D = n/2

Equitable Division of Turkey Bacon In Practice, by Daniel.

n = number of slices of cooked turkey bacon.

D1 = number of slices of turkey bacon Daniel ate while Glen was in the shower.

G1 = number of slices of turkey bacon Glen placed next to his fried eggs.

D2 = number of slices of presumed “left over” turkey bacon consumed by Daniel while Glen was eating his eggs.

G2 = single remaining deformed slice of turkey bacon that counts as many, because it’s the last piece.

D1 = n/2

G1 = 3

D2 = (n – 1) – D1 – G1

G2 = 1

 

It’s snowing.
