I am doing research to build a computer and this article has one of the best charts I have ever seen. They explain this chart by saying "Determining acoustic efficiency, also referred to as cooling-to-noise ratio, is a matter of averaging all five of our tests to determine a base value". I have reread the whole article several times and I still can't figure it out.

They took each individual measure, computed its average for all 5 cases tested, and then reported individual case levels via ((CASE/AVERAGE)*100%)-100%. Impressively dumb.

Efficiency is in relation to average efficiency. Itís not variance though, as that is squared.

i think it has to be troll bait to get americans to say "british food lol" because why else would you put all mass market american snacks in the top tier (assuming Walkers potato chips are similar to Lays)

Looking at the responses Britter is basically outraged, so I think it's trollbait for everyone. I agree on at least one point - Pringles are absolutely not the peak of crisps.

They're like the homeopathy of crisps. There was a potato involved in the process once.

That was blatantly created to get people enraged.

I always thought they were called crisps here in the US to distinguish them from chips. That just causes problems with the UK nomenclature though so I'm assuming they're called "wee potatoey bites" or something over there.

My guess is it's a play on the food pyramid, which also makes no sense for the reasons you describe but is a pre-existing reference point for food diagrams.

it gets even more galaxy brained when you consider that snacks made of grain can be called chips, such as doritos being labeled "corn chips". but if you do it with a potato, frito-lay will have 1000 lawyers at your door

then there are also "veggie straws" which are basically a pringle but shot out of some kind of extruder so they look approximately like a drinking straw. oh but why are they called "veggie" straws? Well some of the straws in your bag will be red or green colored. This means the manufacturer added just enough of a green vegetable to some of the straws, and enough of a red veggie to some other ones, in order that they can classify them as "VEGETABLE AND POTATO SNACK"

I donít understand why doritos or corn chips are in this post. Doritos arenít great but they are indeed corn chips, and corn chips are in fact a real thing that was not invented by US companies, and there are a shitload of tasty ones out there

Unless youíre suggesting that doritos are not made of fried corn, in which case, uuuuh, you know doritos are american right?
