    1. Whatโ€™s up tildorans, This is more of a thought experiment then anything else, is the impact of consuming calories more or less impactful then producing the electricity needed to power the bike?...

      Whatโ€™s up tildorans, This is more of a thought experiment then anything else, is the impact of consuming calories more or less impactful then producing the electricity needed to power the bike? And I also understand this is extremely affected by circumstance. Letโ€™s say you eat beef 3 times a day and live in a part of the world where power is mostly generated via nuclear or hydroelectric. At that point, would the impact via electricity be less then the one via calories? What if you flip the spectrum and youโ€™re a vegan living somewhere that produces all its energy via coal and oil, how does that affect the equation? Thanks

      hey everyone! found this interesting post on /r/6perks, and i wanted to share it here and see what ideas get shared.


      You wake up in a chemist's lab. In front of you is a table with 10 different-coloured pills. You may only choose 3. A warning label notifies you that taking more than 3 will cause instant combustion.

      Which do you choose, and why?


      ๐Ÿ”ต Future Pill ๐Ÿ”ต

      You can see 10 years into the future or any time sooner, whenever you want. You can see any part of the world.


      ๐Ÿ”ด Xray Pill ๐Ÿ”ด

      You gain the ability to see through anything as far as you can normally see. Works at any layer.


      ๐Ÿ”ธ Fly Pill ๐Ÿ”ธ

      You can fly. You start at a slow speed and require time to speed up to a maximum of 100mph (161kph). You are not immune to low oxygen or harsh temperatures.


      ๐ŸŒฟ Drug Pill ๐ŸŒฟ

      You gain the ability to automatically be affected by any drug that exists as much as you want, no bad side effects.


      โค Sex Appeal Pill โค

      Anyone you want is instantly attracted to you, you are cured of and immune to STD's. Anyone who you "do" also becomes immune, and son on. Cure the world?


      ๐Ÿ’  Disease Immune Pill ๐Ÿ’ 

      Gives you the ability to become immune to all harmful diseases.


      ๐Ÿ’ฐ Money Pill ๐Ÿ’ฐ

      You don't become rich, nor have infinite money, but it's like you do. Every time you want to do or have something, your bank account/wallet has exactly as much money as you need.


      ๐Ÿ’ฎ Wish Pill ๐Ÿ’ฎ

      Gives you the ability to wish for one of two things: any existing object to be teleported in front of you, or for you to be teleported wherever you want. Can only be used once a week. You get a free return ticket if you teleported somewhere. You cannot wish for other pills.


      โ™ ๏ธ Death Pill โ™ ๏ธ

      Gives you the ability to have any person of your choice killed, with no risk of consequence. Can only be used once every 5 weeks.


      ๐ŸŒŸ Painproof Pill ๐ŸŒŸ

      You are tougher than Wolverine after drinking green tea or eating spinach. You can still get hurt but you have Olympian-like physique, the skills of the greatest martial artists in the world, you are twice as fast, and your wounds regenerate very quickly.

      you head to the gas station to catch a 6-pack and maybe a bag of chips or some rillos. you pass the cashier a twenty, and they mention your change will get you a couple lottery tickets. you're in a good mood and we all hate coins, so you just tell 'em you're down and to choose random numbers.

      a week later, you wake up and see the winning lottery numbers on the news.

      hopeful curiosity turns into a flooring disbelief as you pause the tv and check the numbers four times over.

      you scramble to find and unlock your phone, heading straight to google.

      "winning lottery numbers"

      "how to tell if you won the lottery"

      "lottery number checker"

      everything checks out.

      "how to claim lottery winnings"

      you go to claim your prize, and you can choose between $130,000,000 in post-tax cash now, or $210,000,000 spread equally over the next 30 years.

      which do you choose? what do you do with it?

      If the cookies never stop being produced, then it is logical to assume that, if unchecked, uneaten cookies will eventually choke the earth, leaving us uninhabitable. What is your plan, and how long do you think we'll last in this cookie apocalypse?

      As for some general rules, the machine is impossible to break, and it can inexplicably produce cookies infinitely without having to refill on ingredients.
