Hamius669 : I don't know why I just watched this.

ZeroEight : This is a great explanation for how hyper-threading works.

Joseph Brill : Cut all the pieces of bread into little cubes, throw them into the pan all at the same time, then everybody gets an equal portion of sad little greasy croutons in only one minute. Nobel prize please.

Jack Kraken : You broke the toaster didn't you?

rofyle : Soggy fried bread. Australian for toast.

ZAYM : I was expecting some sort of fast way to toasting bread...

[sic] : "And now for the baked beans... just pour those on the table as well."

HansDelbruck53 : Try getting out of bed 4 minutes earlier.

Lt. Winters : Is that the uncle from napolean dynamite

kochatj : There’s 4 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. Or 3.

deezynar : The first method has two slices in the pan, then only one. The second method has two slices cooking at all times. He is not just maximizing the use of the surface area of the pan, he is maximizing the pan's time availability.

Ricardo Hernadez : What about the other minute it takes for the oil to heat up?

Tyler Winkle : its not 3 slices of bread, its 6 surfaces that need to be toasted two at a time

El Papalote Mágico de ZLAYER : He's going to be burn alive in hell for playing god!

Zarathustra : I feel blown away by the profundity of this little trick.

Nick Moore : You guy's have consistently shown riddles I have never heard of before! Thanks!

Count Drunkula : *Part 2 of this conundrum:* How long does it take Deane to clean the egg out of the toaster?

Crono : If you really were that smart you would've repaired the toaster

Mike Roberti : Saving 1 minute a day over, say , 75 years saves you 19 days of time wasted making toast.

Joe Long : if thats toast then im Michael Jackson

Calamity James : 1:34 Song name please ?. I wanna get high to it so much.

Always Good : I can't tell if this is a troll video

Jon Mayo : We run into this problem in computer science as well. Except instead of toast and a frying pan, it's threads and CPUs. The problem is a utilization problem, because in the 4 minute scenario the utilization of the frying pan (CPU) is only 50% for part of the time.

Randall Porter : WITCH!

Scramblieggs : Great, now only one question remains unanswered. Why are you toasting your bread in a greasy frying pan?

noisyturtle : I feel dumber for having watched this.

James Lynch : I just burned my toast watching this video damn it!!!

Jay Smith : 3 pieces of bread would save 1 minute; 31 pieces of bread would save 1 minute; 301 pieces of bread would save 1 minute; 3001 pieces of bread would save 1 minute;

Smoosh Goo : I feel like throwing up.

Spore Hux : Why hasn't this guy cured cancer.

xBug68x : Works for steak too ;)

Undercover Spy : Is this some kind of low IQ math joke or something?

Tom Tit : Can you figure out how. I know this one. Buy a new toaster or two more frying pans.

A160OG : I wish i know this 30 years earlier

Miku meow : The oily bread being put on the table triggered me so hard lmfao

Incog Broadcaster : He's a wizard

Haze Anderson : Oh no! Now we are programming for efficiency! 😂 Parallel processing here we come! 😂

Father Bertolucci : This man is a genius!

Avidcomp : A flame thrower would be faster.

FrogyProd : Congratulations, you just saved 1 whole minute!

Panda FPV : What is this sorcery?

Zombie1387 : Or you could by a 4 slice toaster and toast all 3 at the same time lol

killergoverments : Even his background is confused about what's going on.

Bradley Akulov : Math: 6 sides, divided by 3 minutes equals 2 spots on the pan. And then we got Algebra which is fixing the toaster with 3 scissors squared times X, minus butter to the power of purple.

Thomas H : Clogging Your Arteries Fast*

Frank Deventer : Zionist propaganda machine at its best. Don't let them trick you

Robert Wieczorek : Minutes are so precious

Lawrence Greenwood : I was waiting to have my mind blown...aaaaaand I'm off somewhere else now.

richard mattocks : Genius! I guessed the answer but still, great to see it proved.
