Deep math of the folded pizza slice

Array
Gear  |  Other
Why does a flat pizza slice flop over unless you bend it into a curve? Thank Gaussian curvature, the 19th century mathematical principle that underpins everything from corrugated cardboard to eggshells to Pringles chips.
 Wired's Aatish Bhatia uses the pizza-slice as a jumping-off point to explain one of the most elegant and fascinating parts of geometry, and once you read his work, you'll never be able to look at a curved surface again:
"Well, the pizza slice was flat before you picked it up (in math speak, it has zero Gaussian curvature). Gauss’s remarkable theorem assures us that one direction of the slice must always remain flat — no matter how you bend it, the pizza must retain a trace of its original flatness. When the slice flops over, the flat direction (shown in red below) is pointed sideways, which isn’t helpful for eating it. But by folding the pizza slice sideways, you’re forcing it to become flat in the other direction – the one that points towards your mouth. Theorema egregium, indeed.
By curving a sheet in one direction, you force it to become stiff in the other direction. Once you recognize this idea, you start seeing it everywhere. Look closely at a blade of grass. It’s often folded along its central vein, which adds stiffness and prevents it from flopping over. Engineers frequently use curvature to add strength to structures. In the Zarzuela race track in Madrid, the Spanish structural engineer Eduardo Torroja designed an innovative concrete roof that stretches out from the stadium, covering a large area while remaining just a few inches thick. It’s the pizza trick in disguise

From websites:
•••••••••••••••••••••
The Handy Camel is a tight sealing clip and convenient carrying handle for large bags, such as potting soil, fertilizer, pet food, ice salt, bird seed, BBQ charcoal, and more.
Just slide it around the bag's opening, clip it shut, and the round teeth inside securely grip the bag without tearing it, while the ratchet locking system creates a tight spillproof seal.
As handy as this would be for various household projects and pets, it's also great if you have a massive bag of potato chips.

Man Dresses In A Suit Made Of Real Chicken Skin

Array
Gear  |  Other
Artists Victor Ivanov and Lewis Burton had decided to showcase ‘Flesh’ their multi-dimensional art project in the heart of the capital.  The suit of real chicken skin had been literally sewn onto Burton’s body and he wore it as he wandered around, stopping in various places and immediately drawing crowds as he did.
"FLESH is a multi-dimensional art project by artists Victor Ivanov and Lewis G Burton. FLESH is focused on a chicken skin body suit that Ivanov has sewn around Burton’s body from head to toe. FLESH is an experiment that examines the relationship between identity and its commodification through social medias; by creating an entity from chicken skin, a commodified object in itself, the artists are then introducing it into the social sphere, both online and offline.
This abnormality creates a stimulus for the general public to interact with, by allowing them to adopt FLESH as part of their cyber identity. To cement the relationship between the identity that is FLESH and the way it is mediated by cyber culture, the artists are creating a catalogue of FLESH products available to the public. The documented results are then used to create viral material, stimulating the social sphere and allowing it to redefine itself by acting as a platform for dialogue as well as a source of contemporary consumer culture."
