    You know, with the way industrial agriculture relies so heavily on petroleum-based fertilizer, that shirt is not necessarily accurate.

    it doesnt matter if a million gallons of petrol and 1000 dead kittens were used to transport that shirt to someones house or manufacture the bike, the statement is still true. The you can ride an infinite amount of miles and the bike doesnt consume any gasoline, therefore, its MPG (miles per gallon) is infinite.

    Just like they dont calculate the petrol used in the transportation of your auto to the dealership, and the manufacture of it, into its milage.

    Furthermore, how'd the bike get to your house, or at least lbs? how'd it get made?

    And also note that it still takes fuel to propel a bike. You just have to consume it, which made it to you by, you guessed it.

    I have read however that 1 gallon of gas has ~32,000 Calories. You could get pretty far on that on a bike.

    They aren't directly transferable. If you could drink a gallon of gas and get 32,000 calories of energy that would be excellent.

    Youd get fat before you could burn very much of it.

    I like the shirt, even if it's not technically true that by riding a bike instead of a car you're not still participating in the burning of fossil fuels, it's thought provoking, and opens a discussion. With gas prices hurtling for the $4 per gallon mark I think people will be getting more and more receptive to that message. It's easier to be in denial about truths you'd rather not face, like that you can't keep driving to the video store whenever the mood strikes you, when it doesn't cost $60 to fill your tank every week.

    Actually, they are allowed on the highway, just not the Interstate a.k.a. expressway. Highway riding is also more efficient for cyclists as stop and go city traffic is a real energy drain whether you're burning gasoline or carbs.

    If I didn't like my current sig so much...

    If your bike and it's parts were taken from the waste stream, there is no environmental cost. Even buying a new bike or several new bikes is far less environmentally costly than buying a car. Oil changes alone make cars worse for the environment than bikes.

    I was rebutting an idiotioc absolute based on irrational parameters.


    edit; this is a seperate statement:
    Any number divided by 0 gallons is undefined, not infinite.

    lim
    x->0 would work, but only in a calculus forum.

    Nobody said it took 0 gallons to go infinite miles. Maybe they mean you can go an infinite number of miles on some finite number of gallons? Take that Mr. Smartypants.

    Oh, and use digg3prize for the cupon code and get it for $6.

    If I did the math correctly 32,000 calories should power a bicycle for 1066 miles @20mph average. That would be a cool t-shirt.

    You can't go an infinite amount of miles. It is a theoretical representation of a concept, not a tangible number (or a number at all for that matter - I hear this nearly every tues and thurs)

    Very clever though, kemmer.

    I believe the correct way to state that is "infinity is not a real number." Infinity can be treated like a number to do useful things, kind of like the square root of -1.
