I'm a bit skeptical of the "Atlas Shrugged, so timely!" stuff.
That is, specifically, an icosahedral pie. The icosahedron is interesting in that it encloses the greatest volume for a given surface area of any of the five regular polyhedra.
Is that because it is closest to being a sphere?CC
Well spotted, CC!!! The sphere, as you apparently have surmised, contains the greatest volume for given surface area of ANY closed surface.
*Blush* Just applying what I knew about 2d geometry to 3d to see if it worked...CC
