The Möbius Bagel

THIS is how a mathematician slices his bagel! Jill told us about George
Hart
’s Möbius Strip bagel three

, but surely some of you haven’t seen it yet.

As you can see above, George Hart (yes, father of YouTube math star Vi
Hart
) slices his bagel into two congruent linked halves. Besides amazing
everyone with your mathematically correct bagel, there’s the added benefit
of getting more cream cheese because there’s slightly more surface area.
