Bizarre coincidence time: did you know that French uses the same word, 'avocat' for both 'avocado' and 'lawyer'? No, I didn't either.


Did you know that the English use the same word, "Dear" for both a term of endearment (as in frankly my dear, I don't give a damn) and a woodland creature that rednecks like to shoot?

Hilarious!

At first I thought the reference to coming from a government web site was talking about the calories vs kilocalories. Which sounded exactly like what I'd expect from the government: Did we spend a billion dollars or a trillion dollars? Whatever, doesn't matter.

Back when I used to work for the government, co-workers would occasionally point out that something was a big waste of time and money. And I developed a stock response: I'd always say, "Don't worry, it's not like it's real money. It's only tax dollars."

*sigh* Yes, yes, yes.
The calorie is a pre-SI metric unit of energy. It was first defined by Nicolas Clément in 1824 as a unit of heat, entering French and English dictionaries between 1841 and 1867. In most fields its use is archaic, having been replaced by the SI unit of energy, the joule. However, in many countries it remains in common use as a unit of food energy.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calorie. (Scroll down to see the formula for converting between joules and avocados.)

The picture posted only show the "congrats" page, another interesting snapshot would be the google maps page it displays that shows me travelling from Copenhagen to somewhere in Africa at several thousand kilometers per hour.

I'm not sure if it's just my particular phone being broken (my girlfriend's HTC doesn't do this with Noom) or the entire Galaxy S2 line, but it definitely calculates calories as being whatever equals about 45 cals per 100ml of orange juice, so do your calculus based on that ;)


I have the exact same problem with CardioTrainer on my Galaxy. It often showed me running to Africa and home in a few minutes (I too live close to Copenhagen). The company behind the app claims this is due to a 'pretty unreliable signal':
https://sites.google.com/a/worksmartlabs.com/help-center/cardiotrainer/gps

I stopped using the app, and Googles own My Tracks is much more precise on the exact same hardware. Go figure!

In my class we burned cheeto puffs. That "experiment" ranked up there as one of my favorite "science" experiments.

My favorites were actually "magic show" style demonstrations rather than stuff we did.

1. In a British secondary school (the same one as the peanut incident, the following year) in the late 70s, a Tate & Lyle[1] Golden Syrup tin full of natural gas, with a hole in the bottom and another in the lid. Open both holes, and light the top hole, making sure that air can get in through the bottom hole.

You watch this, and you see the flame start out tall, flickery and yellow. It gets gradually lower and bluer as air mixes in with the gas from below. After a couple of minutes, during which time the teacher continues to babble on about something so the class doesn't notice the tin, enough air has mixed in with the gas inside the tin that the flame-front rushes through the tin all of a sudden, and the lid bounces off the ceiling.

2. The annual "physics magic show" to entertain prospective students foolish enough to express an interest in spending their student years at RPI, an electromagnet, and some aluminium rings.

The ring with a gap buzzes a bit when electricity is passed through the coils round the electromagnet.

The complete ring leaps a couple of feet into the air when it's at room temperature.

The assistant brings out some liquid nitrogen and dunks the complete ring, and now the resistance of the ring is low enough that it hits the ceiling hard, thirty feet up.

[1] Tate & Lyle, supplier of sugar, syrups and the like to British supermarkets for a long time. The only company I know of whose logo features a dead lion. I live and work in France, and one of their research centres is in the building next door to my office.


Not only is the lion dead, but it has insects buzzing around a great big hole in its belly.

I take it you have no experience being the devil's advocate?

Huh, interesting observation. But you don't even need to go that far... what does any lawyer do? Advocate.

The online etymology dictionary says, for avocado, "1763, from Sp. avocado, altered (by folk etymology influence of earlier Sp. avocado "lawyer," from same Latin source as advocate) from earlier aguacate".

According to the interwebs, (and yes, I knew this before I looked up a reference) Avocado comes from a mesoamerican word for testicle[1] which happened to sound a lot like the spanish word for lawyer to the conquistadors.

The Deal of the Day is not a WTF. The glasses cost $50, but the coupon's value is $25, so you only pay the other $25, saving 50%.


Where do you get the impression the glasses cost $50?
The text says "$25 for a $50 Deal Certificate Towards the Purchases of a Complete Pair of Eyeglasses..." This implies the Eyeglasses cost MORE than $50. And that you are purchasing a $50 gift certificate for $25.
The WTF is the Value and Cost prices are reversed.
TRWTF is the inability to read.

The slide show one reminds me of a definition of conservatism that I've seen several variants on: Conservatives believe that we should never do anything for the first time; we should only do things the same way we have done them before.

(I once saw a list of such definitions for various political "belief systems", each one making its followers look equally silly and irrational. Now what were some of the others? ...)

I think I know what really happened with the calorie bit: The phone probably didn't have working GPS for some reason at some point and got fooled by a WiFi router that got moved. This produced an insane distance and an insane number of calories.

The program also contained a list of food equivalents to calories and 5 avocados is the biggest item in the list.

Ooh, you're almost right!

The poster was posting about how funny it was to express calories in avocados. "Oh yeah, I burned 5 avocados today", that's funny, see? So the WTF was not that the poster didn't know shit about food.

The real WTF is, as was repeated many times in the comments, that the app doesn't know the difference between "279883 calories" and "279883 Cal", as it has both in the same output and it doesn't realize that this is meaningless.
Aanother WTF, as we found out later, is that 279 Cal doesn't come close to being 5 avocados.

Also, everybody in the world expresses energy in food as Calories, so it's not a WTF if they don't express the energy in joules. Quite the contrary in fact: if it would only be expressed in joules without mentioning Cals, people wouldn't know what it meant.
So it's a WTF that you want to see the energy in food expressed in joules. And another WTF that you meant "calorie => joule" but you said "joule => calorie". And that you didn't read all the comments before posting. And that you concluded, without any evidence, that the poster didn't know about kilocalories being Calories. And that you don't know how to spell "your".

There are calories, about 4.2 Joules each, representing the energy to heat one gram of water by one degree C.

There are Calories, also called kilocalories or kcal, exactly 1000 calories. (Yes, boys and girl, a Calorie is 1000 calories.)

There are not kCal, and if there were, they would be called Mcal, because they would be kilokilocalories, better known as megacalories.

The edible parts of an avocado are rated about 160kcal per 100g, so, yes, 280kcal per five avocados is a bit light.

IT is a industry that attracts pedants. So you get comments by pedants on a site like TDWTF, there's a surprise. In your language, I guess, the word for "pedant" is "sperg". Which language is that?

If your password must be exactly 14 characters long and still contain one alphabet, I would recommend the Hawaiian language http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaiian_language


... although it might be a bit tricky finding a keyboard with the appropriate 'glottal stop' key.


If you're going to reference Hawaiian, at least use the proper name. Olelo is the name of the alphabet, and `okina is the correct name for what you called "glottal stop". You also failed to mention the kahako - a combining macron which affects both pronunciation and meaning of words. Unfortunately these two letters are absent from most fonts. The `okina is often approximated through either an apostrophe or back-tick, while some people use a tilde instead of the kahako.

Now try the name of our former state fish: humuhumunukunukuapua`a.

Only 13 chars there....

Totally aside, someone once told me (not sure if this is true or not) there's no 'P' in Pidgin....Given they were talking about Papua New Guinea (so I assume they mean Tok Pisin - which definitely has a 'p' in almost all the examples on wikipedia {that which never lies}) they must have been talking shit.

In year 10 physics one day, we are talking about metal reactions and the teacher goes "you all know what happens when you heat magnesium aluminium alloy, right?" The whole class as one, goes "Noo?". Next day we come in and he's got conical flask boiling away on top of a Bunsen burner and another Bunsen burner running next to it. He pulls out a metal pencil sharpener and starts heating it over the burner with tongs, once it's nice and hot he drops it in the boiling water. FOOOOM! a white flash shoots out the top of the flask, burns through the diffuser on the light on the ceiling and shatters the globe.

He also blew up hydrogen balloons. Best science teacher I ever had.

279883 cal = 279.883 kcal
so 280 kcal which is very correct

Rather take the walk, eating that many avocado's might not be the best idea.

Bizarre coincidence time: did you know that French uses the same word, 'avocat' for both 'avocado' and 'lawyer'? No, I didn't either.


Did you know that the English use the same word, "Dear" for both a term of endearment (as in frankly my dear, I don't give a damn) and a woodland creature that rednecks like to shoot?

Hilarious!

Last time I checked, Bambi (known as 'bang bang' in the more rural parts of the USA) was a deer, not a dear (except maybe to its mother).
