GAH! Everything I was finding was saying it was 2010 calories for the 24 oz size, so I figured the 20 oz would be 2010 * 20/24 = 1675

(1690 + 11) ^ 4 = 8371769346801

Where did I go wrong? The calories in the 20 oz shake? The link I found said 1690 for the "Love It" size : http://www.nutrition-charts.com/coldstone-nutrition-facts-calorie-information/

Sounds like Seinfeld's low fat yogurt episode.

We're not sure why the calories don't scale linearly, but there it is...

welp. I guess I get to run 3 browsers now. Time to add Firefox to Chrome to IE.. wonder if I'll need Opera next.

EDIT: installing firefox didn't work either. I'll just have to copy everything including the button and just delete it all out

Have the last 2 products not had an equation or am I missing something? I saw the one about calories and starry night, but haven't seen one since?

If so, I would suggest you switch to just swearing instead of trying to pronounce shasteriskasterisk each time. It'll save you time and saliva.

You are a brave soul, making a string change live...

I feel the need to warn you that if those links are live, and you shorten the url, someone will bruteforce them before their time. I'm sure you've though of this, but figured a repetitive warning is better than a clusterfluffle.

He meant just remove the http://www portion in the text to hopefully make more of the URL available to read. Otherwise the link is the same.
