A big 2 on the Pizza Meter
(true, chuckle)

[Note:  OPSEC is short for "Operations Security", i.e. ensuring a potential
enemy cannot guess what you're about to do]

From "The OPSEC Indicator", Fall 1991:


Earlier this year we reported that Domino's Pizza claims it can predict
when the government is about to undertake some sort of major activity based
upon the increase in pizza deliveries to the Pentagon and the White House.
Pizza orders increased substantially just prior to troop deployments to
Grenada, Panama, and the Middle East.

According to The Washington Times of August 21, 1991, during the early
hours of the abortive Kremlin coup in August, Domino's "Pizza Meter"
registered 102 deliveries to the Pentagon, breaking the Gulf War record by
one; the White House ordered 52 pizzas, breaking its Gulf War record by

The CIA, by contrast, learned its OPSEC lesson:  There were only two
orders, and they were quickly cancelled.
