So just how many calories ARE there?

In a couple of mouthfuls of gnats?

You all ride; you know exactly what happened on my ride this evening.

Ick. Going uphill, panting like a steam engine, too.

On a good note, I held my speed up more than 1.5 mph higher than I've ridden that route before!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Gnats are low cal and pure protein! It takes 1250 gnats to = 1 gram of protein though

It depends on how much feces they consumed earlier. Gnats are voracious feces consumers eating nearly 10 times their body weight during the day. You should count the gnats in your mouth, multiply their body weight by ten and figure out the calorie count in that much dung. On a good note, I think waste products are fairly low in calories.

I think...
