Shouldn't it be a pie chart rather than a graph?

Pie x the radius squared of the jelly bean x the length of the jelly = roughly the volume of the jelly bean = approx. the distance you can run before needing to consume another bean. Or another pie. Fact.

Incidentally... does anybody know the volume of a pizza with depth a and radius z?!

Tell us more, madam.

All that talk of pie is making me hungry.  Early bed for me, I have a wild trip to, erm, Surrey to look forward to tomorrow...

Dave the ex Spartan - liking the look of Birchwood, may give that a go.

Follwed by Warrington Half (the English Half Marathon) - I've got unfinished business there. Or if you were on the forum at the time - I had too much business there

SimonMacD  - Love the formula (and thanks to TheEngineer for solving it - wooshed over my head)

Kaz - spill the (Jelly) beans

Found the explanation for my restarted 10k in Newcastle on Sunday...

As runners at todays event will be aware the race had to be restarted due to the lead runners taking an incorrect route as they approached the lake, as a result most athletes ran around 800m before they were called back to start the race again.
This was due to a member of the public entering the course on a bicycle just before the starting gun was sounded. The cyclist was dressed in fluorescent clothing and as the leading group of runners ran closer to him they mistook him to be a race official and mistakenly followed him to the right instead of carrying straight on.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will take steps in future events to ensure this does not happen again.

Knitted jelly beans and pizza formulas! This place really is genius.

The taste isn't great but they do last much, much longer and contribute additional fibre to the diet.

 

Peter - you a Storm fan?

 

Weedy - love that explanation

TheEngineer. Last time I put that graph up showing TSS values and TSB, some people's heads nearly exploded and there was lots of complaints that they couldn't understand what it meant. So I kept it more simpler this time.
