Karen and Tony talk about their California trip, cones and the dude that had the weird New Age music playing while he was cleaning up.

  • A truncated cone is called a frustum
  • Any 10th grader could have told Tony that a 2 dimensional truncated cone is not a rhombus. It's a trapezoid.
  • The "waffle cone", in contrast to the sugar cone, is not even across the top, and it has these little waffle-y bits sticking up
  • Gelato is not custard. It traditionally has lower milk fat than ice cream
