Charged By Hamburgers

a: human body ~
b: a giant battery


"The human body is like a giant battery. We charge it by taking in calories through eating and drinking, and this energy is stored as fat and muscle. As we go about our lives, we release huge amounts of body heat. If we have a diet of around 2400 kilocalories per day, we are essentially burning around 100 kilocalories per hour, which translates to roughly 116 watts of energy. "
