    You know, I’ve heard this logic before, but I think it’s flat-out wrong. I mean, I see the math with the calories burned and the daily intake and whatnot, and maybe this is different for other people, but my food intake doesn’t increase because I bike to work; what increases is the amount of that food-energy that is burned off rather than stored as fat on my body. I still eat three meals a day.

    The argument would only make sense if people who drove cars didn’t eat. I accept that gasoline is burned so that I may be fed, but that has little to do with my bike, that has to do with my MPG. My bike’s MPG is infinite, or at least a mere function of my own MPG, in which case, it has no MPG of its own.

    That is, unless drivers stop eating.
