The average human adult produces 1,020 ATP molecules per second. One molecule of glucose stores 90 times the amount of chemical energy than one molecule of ATP, and the average adult stores thousands of glucose and glycogen molecules in the body at any given time.

If the energy stored in each of those molecules were released all at precisely the same moment, we would be totally incinerated!

Who says there's no scientific basis for spontaneous combustion? 0_0

DOCTOR WHO and the ENEMIES of EARTH

"This new machine he's created... It's a Metabolic Reductor."
"Is it dangerous, Doctor?"
"Yes, Jo. This weapon can reverse the chemical processes of the human body."
"What do you mean?"
"Every cell in your body stores energy. It keeps you alive. Now imagine every bit of energy in your body released at precisely the same instant."
"You'd be vaporized!"
"Yes, Jo."
"Why that's terrible!"
"That's why they've got to be stopped."

Did you know that the measurement of mass 'carat' was based originally on the average mass of a medium-sized carob seed?

I did not know that.

And yet this does not help me to properly formulate a pun involving carrots/carats.

Blast.
