    so a friend and i had a big aruement over the this question: can you toast toast?

    we came to the conclusion that you can toast toast, but it then becomes burnt.

    i said you can toast toast, but it doesent burn, but you can make it darker

    i added some numbers

    t = toast
    t1 = darker toast
    o = oven
    tt = time
    h = heat
    b = bread

    t = 0 + tt x h
    t1 = t x tt x h

    so, let the trolling begin!

    No, it's not possible that it's a virus, since there are none. Macs are not immune to malware, but no true viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any since it was released 10 years ago. The only malware in the wild that can affect Mac OS X is a handful of trojans, which can be easily avoided with some basic education, common sense and care in what software you install. Also, Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Lion have anti-malware protection built in, further reducing the need for 3rd party antivirus apps.

    You forgot the oven in the second equation...I don't get how you'll make t into t1 without an oven.

    But retoasting, as everyone knows, is more of an art than a science so it does not lend itself to mathematical solutions.

    Yes. 'Toasting' is the act of heating slices of bread (or a toaster strudel, or a bagel, or a small rodent etc etc) in a toaster; therefore any bread that comes out of a toaster after being heated is 'toast', regardless of what state it was in before being placed in the toaster.

    This sounds like a trick question. But, yesterday, while eating some breadsticks and marina sauce from a bottle. I bought the bottle in the pasta sauce aisle. the jar said to refrigerate after opening.

    so, it wasn't at first, now it is. but, i still think it's a trick question.


    and to the OP, if bread is already toasted prior to you putting it in the toaster and you toast it again, then yes I believe it can be toasted again. Toasting is just a description. I've re-toasted many garlic breads before that were already toasted. Some were from restaurants to have a better taste than the microwave or the frozen one. I've never had any issues re-toasting the toasted breads before.


    Just my 2 cents..
