If you haven’t had a chance to check out www.cockeyed.com, you should check out their entertaining series “How Much Is Inside”.
In just shy of 50 adventures, this guy makes a 73 foot long Cheerios necklace, simulates the huge messy puddle an entire human body’s content of blood would make, lipsticks up a girls legs almost up to the knee, figures out what kind of suitcase will hold a million dollars, and tapes up an 100 foot long strip of pornographic images down an elementary school hallway. All in the name of science.
And he seems to have a lot of fun doing it.
He comes up with several surprising results. Like working out that a 2-liter bottle of soda contains 2 liters of soda and 4 liters of carbon dioxide. Or that cheap batteries, while they last half as long as brand-name batteries, are actually 3 times as economical by price per hour.
But this one one really suprised me. He weighs out a package of Oscar Meyer bacon bits, and compares it by weight to actual cooked Oscar Meyer bacon. Turns out, bacon bits cost half as much by weight as actual cooked bacon.
For some reason, I always thought it would be the other way around. Weird.
