hypothetically speaking if someone attemtped to make a full scale sized aircraft carrier model out of processed meat how many calories would the whole thing be?

My guess would be...

enough to feed everyone for a while...

or...

instant death if eaten.

I don't know. I guess a lot.

Way too many. Why are you wondering?

Boredom, mainly. One answer I've gotten from my friends was over 339 billion.

Ten million?... Probably more, but I'd imagine two billion at most.
Yes I do want fries with that.

The exact number he gave was 339,296,444,080.1. I don't even want to imagine the stench from it after a week.

at least Octillion or maybe Google Calories (google is the highest number)

Well, you'd have to measure how many calories there was by burning the whole thing o_O;

I forget the experiment exactly...

Wha...Why is this is even a discussion? This is even worse than my "What would you do for a Klondike bar..." thread xD

Yeah, I was surprised when it wasn't an Octillion calories. You'd probably have to deep fat fry the meatship to get an octillion.

Actually spelt googol and a googolplex is larger. I can't help but think people only create such numbers for their own amusement.

Burning is an inefficient method, I did it at school once. ō_ō
It just goes to show how something so random can turn out a genuine discussion... average conversation is brought about by random subjects, naturally. Makes me think perhaps this meat ship would've been better brought up in the DCC thread.

You'd think so but this topic probably would have been ignored.

There's no such thing as a "highest" number.

And it depends, what kind of meat is it? Is the carrier empty or fully loaded?

Give me the weight of the aircraft carrier you're thinking of and the caloric information per serving by weight of the pressed meat you're using and I'll tell you.

EDIT: The most modern aircraft carriers, the Nimitz-class, displace 97,000 tons.

Nutrition Facts (for Spam meat product)
Serving Size 2 oz
Amount Per Serving
Calories
174

So it's 270,048,000,000 calories, unless displacement =/= weight. Good luck with whatever caused you to need to know that.

x.X That's um... some useful information. XD Sometimes random questions are just fun.

270 billion calories, eh? What next, a Spam Everest?

Well it might balance out considering the calories expended to make it in the first place.

And yeah it does depend on what type of meat it is and how its cooked, etc.

Lusankya

I highly doubt it would balance out. Besides, there's no way a single person could make that without heavy machinery.

xD wow im guessing alot of meat to feed the whole of africa for years would be used

Assuming we all eat about 2095 (the average in America) calories a day, then that aircraft carrier would feed 128,901,193 people for a day.

That's slightly less than half the population of the United States.

Well, it depends on the type of meat I guess. If the meat is pure fat, you're dead. If it's pure lean, the lesser the calorie is.
