No One Can Figure Out How the Hell to Cut Christmas Cookies. Not Even Computers

According to Popular Mechanics, scientists are still trying to understand the most efficient way to cut out sugar cookies without wasting dough. 

“Say you have a large rectangle of cookie dough and a circular cutter. If you’re a really advanced spatial cookie maker, you’ll pack the circles in like they’re in a honeycomb, staggering them so they notch together more neatly. In nature, this is mimicked by, well, honeycombs …”

But that’s not really the answer to the puzzle. Go to Popular Mechanics to learn more about it.
