Homophonically eponysterical.

This is ridiculous. They're making their estimates based on the idea that the dots are solid food with lots of waste. The dots are clearly energy-based dots. It's like calculating how much poop you'd make from eating a ton of sugar-cubes by doing the calculations assuming the sugar cubes are fiber instead of sugar.

Pac man dots are not fiber dots!

Nothing like a poo thread for a rainy weekend. I shall sit back with my beverage and enjoy, until the inevitable deletion.

This is easily - easily - the most asinine thing I have read in a long, long time. And yet, nonetheless, I find myself mildly impressed by the thought that went into it.

I couldn't read any further past the improper use of "beg the question". I assume that it was full of fail.

I suck at Pac Man. Maybe I should eat more fiber.

I think this thread about pacman fecal volume makes some seriously wrong assumptions about the density of pixel representations of real-world objects.

If I wanted pixels of poop, I'd download a 2G1C video. Do not want.

Although it would be more challenging if Donkey Kong standing on the top of the scaffolding occasionally pooped or peed on Mario...

Are we assuming pacman extends into the third dimension?

If he doesn't, presumably he has to poop out of his mouth. A two dimensional organism can't have a two-orifice digestive tract.

I enjoyed it, so there.

I'm not sure about that, actually. Couldn't Pac-Man be permeable like an amoeba? The food could be absorbed into Pac-Man at his mouth, move around inside him in some kind of vitreous gel (like inside your eye) and then be excreted on his opposite, two dimensional, side. Technically he wouldn't even have a "digestive tract", but there's no reason he has to have one.

"People checking their power pellets for fiber content—you have too many freaking free cycles on your hands."

10:06:18 AM Fletch: do we assume Pac's GI tract is reg'lar? Getting enuf dietery fiber?

I don't care what you say. That's damn funny.
