One gallon of gas has 31,000,000 small calories, 1 food calorie, or kcal, is equal to 1000 small calories. If your body could process gas, a gallon would last you a week and a half.
Strictly speaking you are quite incorrect.
@HSA, It's actually 31,000 for us. Dumb tumblr bois.
@HSA, well he'll be dead.... probably pretty soon after drinking one gallon of gas. Also with the induced vomiting, and more likely scenario of the person asperating the gas, bile, vomit, saliva into the lungs. Assuming they dont pass out and drown with 5 minutes they likely just die from some other fairly crummy way related. This would all happen before they eat again. So technically.....
@HSA, was about to say the same thing. Isn't this learned in high school chemistry?
Lol 1500-2500, that's a meal for me. 6'2, 150lbs btw
@FullMetalAlcoholist, damn you're thin
@salty joe, yeah, heaviest I've ever been was back in college. I was 160, lifting a lot and taking in ~6000 calories an 300+ grams of protein a day, I've seen a load of doctors and no ones given me a clear answer
@FullMetalAlcoholist, well that's excess protein. Your body doesn't store protein only absorbs what it needs. Just take steroids. The hospital kind which increases your appetite and slows down your metabolism. I took it, and gained 50lbs in 8 months. Not proud. Cause I was desperate. 5'10 only weighing 110
@hasher22 , yeah but I was working out strenuously for 2+ hours a day, lifting a lot
@FullMetalAlcoholist, have you tried cake?
@FullMetalAlcoholist, Yeah mate I’m a college lineman and if I don’t eat 8k calories a day my coach actually yells at me lol *edit* I WAS a college lineman but now I have to actually work. Just finished my 5th year
Technically correct guy strikes again
Well I’m disappointed that burning calories was not included in this picture
Or you'd become incredibly obese within a week because excess calories are stored in your body as fat.
@Anonymous Jack III, I'll be surprised if he survives a week after chugging a gallon of gasoline
@Good Guy Satan, Let him if he's that stupid he deserves to die
@Good Guy Satan, the "survived a week after chugging a gallon of gasoline" what?
@TheWhiteWolf, Autocorred changed He to The and Survives to Survived. Hope the joke was still clear though
@Good Guy Satan, he wouldn't survive for more than a couple days, unless he had his stomach pumped.
@Doctor Krieger, I think he'll need a mechanic to get that "fuel pump"
A calorie is just a unit of energy, as you would expect gasoline has the potential to be an enormous amount of energy
Andrew W K?
If you light yourself on fire after dumping gasoline . You will burn all the calories off....
I just did a quick search, a gallon of gasoline has 31,000 calories, not 31,000,000. If the second number was true I feel like it would be denser than a diamond. Still an impressive amount of calories. I wonder why it’s so high? If any science wizards are in the building please enlighten me
For the sake of argument, wouldn't the body only be able to process a certain amount of calories into fat?
@TheKen42, a body processes different foods at different rates, excesses pass through you
@HSA, I thought so, otherwise people would end up blimping overnight
