   Not exactly relevant, I googled "calories per gallon of gas" and
got 31,000.  It says if a man riding a bicycle could run on gas, he
would get 972 mile per gallon.  (A 175 lb man uses about 34 calories
per mile.)

    Cars use about 1000 calories per mile (at 30 mpg.)

    More relevant, since agriculture bases it's production on
petroleum, I'd say whe're in a heap of trouble.  Especially with gas
prices rising and the fight for grain as fuel or food.

    Time to ramp up the survivalist mentality?  Or will technology
save the day?
