Is Subway’s Footlong less than a foot long?
Many people have raised the same issue with Subway on its Facebook page. Corby asked Subway to “pls resp,” but so far, Subway has not responded.
At least one of Subway’s fans claims that a toasted sandwich loses an inch in the process, and that untoasted sandwiches are a full 12 inches long. But no one has provided empirical evidence to substantiate this claim.
Critical thinking challenge: What’s going on here? How could you get to the bottom of this controversy?
Define these words: empirical, substantiate
