I was doing some energy calculations to estimate how much energy I may have spent on a treadmill, and came out with a surprisingly low number. Turns out that a calorie is quite a bit of energy. For example, one of the chocolate thins that my mother brought us for christmas, with 47 calories, could lift my whole body nearly 200 metres off the ground! That's pretty amazing.

In other news, it turns out that my no limit credit card does have a limit. (The fine print did mention that they may refuse to honor transactions once the balance gets too high.) I got to find out what the limit is today, after our recent wedding and flight ticket expenses put us over the line. "Well, " I asked the person on the phone, "can I change that?" He put me on hold for a while and then eventually came back and increased it by 15,000. So now I can put a new car on my visa. Crazy! The funniest part is that the reason I called was to get a $10 transaction cleared.
