Math problem for today

If the number of raindrops hitting my roof right now is greater than 5000, and the number of molecules in my right ventricle is less than infinity but greater than twelve, then how many miles of spaghetti could fit in the trunk of my car?

Is this cooked spaghetti or dry spaghetti? Whole wheat or traditional? Can you design a car to run on spaghetti? It would be cheaper and give the word problem a whole new meaning.

164,563 miles of spaghetti!

Cheesy said...

I would drive 24 miles to Spagetti Warehouse to do the reseach....

DENVER COLORADO!!

Would you repeat the question?

Morgen said...

Clearly, these people have never seen your car.
The answer is ZERO. There's no space left for any more stuff in Janna's car!!!

Janna said...

Cincy Diva: Chevy Cavalier. 2004, I think.

Anonymous: Muellers.

Meloncutter: Hmmmm... let me recalculate....

Marilyn: Cooked spaghetti. Traditional. Muellers brand. At this point, spaghetti WOULD be cheaper than gasoline.

Wayne: I think that's enough to stretch around the entire planet Earth!

Cheesy: I'll go with you! Are you buying?

Metalmom: I think you accidentally used the metric system.

Mimi: That costs extra.

Morgen: HEY!!! My trunk is empty! It really is empty! You can check when I come to visit this Thursday! It's empty! That's why I feel an overwhelming urge to fill it with spaghetti...

Exactly twenty four miles of spaghetti, slightly less if you include the sauce.

Lynda said...

Is there spaghetti sauce involved? Or meatballs?

Otherwise I have to say spaghetti = garlic bread as the answer.

Mr. Fabulous said...

I like cookies!

I would just like to point out that I am the first Bloglines subscriber to your new venture and thus I am your biggest fan.

Janna said...

Michael: That sounds reasonable.

Lynda: Now I am craving meatballs. And garlic bread.

Mr. Fab: Will you be my stalker too? 'Cuz that would be really cool.

metalmom said...

If Mr. Fab stalked you, would you cancel each other out?

Janna said...

Metalmom: I think we'd be like matter and antimatter; if we were ever in the same room together we'd make the planet explode or something.
That's why he's down in Florida, and I'm up here in Michigan.
It's for the good of humanity, really.
