kilocalories

The Calorie (kilocalorie) used in food analysis is the amount of energy it takes to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of water (1 liter) by 1°C. The calorie in science is the amount of energy it takes to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water (1 ml) by 1°C.


In food terms, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man would contain 5.85 gigacalories (5.85 teracalories in scientific terms). 1,442 kilocalories in a pound of marshmallows, SPMM weighed 3.87 million pounds (1935 tons). In pure calorie terms, SPMM could fully feed 2,925,000 adults for one day. That’s about the number of adults in the US. But the US adult population on a massive sugar rush is not what we need, considering how badly they’ve been behaving recently.


I made eggs ackley to finish off the second avocado. The first one topped a baked potato w/ pork tenderloin. The first one was a tad waxy, but the second one was prefect. I filled my quota for avocados this week. Pulled pork is the alternative, the bag 75% gone. Working on the strawberry puree.


Taking the day off on bodhran practice, as my arm is telling me to lay off. Beginners are notorious for overdoing it and causing problems. A day or two to let the arm to catch up is a wise thing to do.


I have added Blue Skies (Irving Berlin) to the book. A little tricky in one spot, but otherwise not that difficult. Not a jamming tune, though.
