if I was asked to describe the halfbakery logo in as few words as possible, I would say half a croissant. As I'm sure a majority of you would.
However, a croissant is derived from crecent, which is traditionally defined as a quater-moon shaped object. so half a croissant would be what exactly?
I suppose an 1/8 moon.
what would it look like?
 a regular croissant but twice as thin?
 or half a croissant like the one in the upper-left corner of this page?
I think we need to define, and name the half-croissant to evade ambiguety.
||You are asking for the specific weight of a croessant. This factor is undeterminable. A whole croissant is one that is in complete form. A thin croissant is still a whole croissant regardless of weight. Is is not until the shape of the croissant is altered (via cutting in half, or eating in half) can it be a half croissant.
||... and I don't think we do.

||Ambigooity. It's the croissant's better half.
