Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

In my very first line I defined the finite size of the tube to 70 squeezes...
A potential 71st portion would take 4096 seconds to squeeze, which is one hour eight minutes and 16 seconds.

Be honest: have you actually squeezed a tube of toothpaste continuously for more than one hour?

I thought not! (It's OK: I don't blame you for not wanting to do so!  ;))

Therefore, your definition of only 70 portions is only an assumption with no empirical verification.

So the toothpaste realm is still a viable hypothesis.  ;D

Three-part question:

1. How much macaroni goes to the landfill stuck in the glue at the bottom of the box?

2. How much time is spent knocking them loose by people who are absolutely NOT going to let that one elbow go to the landfill.

3. Are you one of those people?

All these cheesy posts are really grating on me. :angel: :laugh:

Mac and cheese, anyone?  ::)

It further occurs to me that we have not yet debated what happens when we rotate the toothpaste tube ninety degrees and start squeezing out all the imaginary toothpaste.

What a can of worms! Which leads to our next question....

How many worms are there in a can of worms?

Starting with trying to define an average Lumbricus terrestris (earthworm).. it seems likely (after extensive digging in the back yard and copiously measuring each worm I came across) that 35mm by 8mm is near enough the 'norm'...
Also worth noting that being hermaphroditic, earthworms have no sexuality or gender issues..

so volume of our average worm is 
 V = r x pi^2 x h

 V= 8 x 9.8696 x 35

V = 2763.5 mm^3

or about 2.8 cubic centimetres

a standard #1 (tall) US can is 12oz or 2 cups.. which equates to 473 cc

473/2.8  gives you approx.. 169 earthworms in a standard #1 can...


That is unless you make a pate out of them first.. this would reduce their volume by 60% and so, you could have 422.5 earthwomrs.. and something nice to go on your toast in the morning...

*no earthworms were harmed during this research..

OMG! Exactly the kind of answer I'm looking for!  ;D

That makes sense.  It adds up.

Nice!  :)

I'm probably just a tad OCD so its not time wasted!  Its... ummm required.  And I smash flat the bottom and carefully fold it up so its all used. 

Do I win?!? 

p.s. I once was quite addicted to a computer game called Sim City.  I wrote the company that published the software telling them how much I enjoyed it and was surprsed to get a large box in return with posters, a "mayors hat" and other sorts of really cool Sim City stuff...  Then while wearing my new hat and tacking up the first of the posters I pondered how much time I had spent in the artificial world of Sim City which produced nothing... or in other words I flashed to my final moments on earth where I was wearing my Sim City hat and sobbing "I wish I had spent more of my life vegging out playing Sim City."

I pondered this for a moment and took the hat and all the other free stuff (And the game) and pushed them deep to the bottom of my trash and vowed never to become "addicted" to another computer game.

I almost cracked when Sarah showed me a game that would let me drive a simulation of my beloved RX8 (With I admit - amazing graphics)  But I've driven my actual RX8 faster and that was much more fun speeding by people indicating "Your Number 1" by showing me their middle finger when I left them in a cloud of dust.

No, no. That's when you turn it inside-out and try to squeeze the tube out.
