Unified theory of Dim Sum consumption

A long-time reader I once referred to as "Mr. X" put together this handy graphical representation of eating dim sum, which is like Chinese breakfast tapas.

As you can see, the target for consumption is $10 per person, though that's tough to aim for since no one knows what anything costs. The standard deviation is $1. If you eat $14 worth as I did some time ago, you are four standard deviations away, meaning you must skip four meals for your body to feel normal again.

FYI, five standard deviations may cause death.
