    I work on a .mil installation, next time I'm near the comissary I can look to see if they sell them (my last base did for people who went camping or something). Shoot me a PM and remind me if you'd like.

    One year at scout camp I ate in a cafeteria and didn't get enough to eat, so I lost 20lbs that week.

    The next year we had military MREs for almost every meal. I gained 20lbs that year.

    hahaha, ya, they're not meant to be meal replacements for breakfast lunch and dinner... There's like 1200 calories in each meal so unless you're doing some hard core training you're bound to gain weight from 3600cal a day.

    Wow, that's enough energy to raise all the water in my body by 55.9C! ...wait, calories in food? What's that?

    ...in all seriousness though, that's 15.12MJ! That is an obscene amount of energy! To borrow an analogy from Wikipedia, 1MJ is equal to "approximately the kinetic energy of a one-ton vehicle moving at 160 km/h (100 mph)"...it's no wonder our bodies can't convert all of that chemical potential energy out in one day. ...actually, that got me curious...so, the average human body apparently consumes 14 Cal per one pound of lean muscle per day..just sitting around doing nothing.. So in a person with 100lbs of lean muscle, that's 1400 Cal/day, or 5.88MJ/day. That's 68J/s! Just sitting around maintaining an equilibrium! That is absurd! ...ok, sure, the human body is an amazing machine, but...damn! That is crazy inefficient! ...suddenly the Matrix power system starts to make more sense...
