Incorrect. "Calories" in food are actually kilocalories. The average person should consume 2,000,000 calories, or 2000 Kcal, per day. If the body could process gasoline, in theory a gallon would feed you for about 15 1/2 days on an assumed 2000 Kcal diet.
@Doctor Krieger, so you’re saying there’s a chance
@Domogle, a chance to die is almost certainly guaranteed
@Doctor Krieger, You beat me to it. The mechanical engineering side of me was itching to correct them for not converting from kcal to cal.
@Doctor Krieger, only the math is incorrect then. As if he drank a gallon of gasoline chances are he will never need to eat again the presupposition stands
@bowlnmike, I mean to be fair, it’s really stupid that Calories and calories are two different things, but Calories and kilocalories are the same...
@Doctor Krieger, you’re a doctor on the internet. You must be telling the truth.
@Domogle, he’s a doctor. Must be true.
@Doctor Krieger, actually, it's still correct, because he still won't need to eat for the rest of his life if he chugs gasoline. Mainly because his life will be over.
@Doctor Krieger, you've got to fuel a sex machine one way or another
@Doctor Krieger, Even if it was 31 million kilocalories, that would only last for 42 and a half years. Still not enough.
Now, is this a misinterpretation, and doesn't really have calories, but energy with the 'equivalent' of calories? Or does it legit have actual calories?
@TheKen42, if it has calories, but your body can’t utilize said calories, then it effectively has zero calories for you since you can’t metabolize it
@TheKen42, A calorie is the amount if energy needed to raise one gram of water's temperature by one degree celcius.
So yes the energy in gasoline can be measured in calories but there is no possible way for you to harness that energy for sustenance.
Build a man a fire he’ll be warm for a day.
Set a man on fire and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.
Clearly this guy knows how to party.
Isn't that the guy from Destroy Build Destroy
There’s that goddammed Andrew WK again, partying in a way only he would.
