Title: Startling developments with math and tacos
Post by: Axem on June 29, 2012, 07:11:58 pm
So after seeing the wonderful and beautiful HTL TC Cargo Container being shown off in the MediaVPs forum, it made me think of... tacos. And just how many tacos would Holley have bought if Lemongrass market actually filled the container she bought with tacos?

I did some math to find out.

The dimensions of our friendly TC cargo container are 22.72 m x 22.52m x 34.54 m. It's not a perfect box, so we'll just say it has about 90% of the volume of an equivalent box. Plus we'll say the container has 0.5m thick walls (slimming the dimensions down by 1m each way).

21.72 x 21.52 x 34.54 m * 0.9 = 14,530 m^3

The dimensions of a taco, we'll say 0.15 m x 0.10 m x 0.03 m giving us an amazing 0.00045 m^3 of taco goodness.

So how many tacos per container?

14,530 / 0.00045 = ...

32,288,888 TACOS

This means that Holley, with her 10,000 creds (or 9999 if you were that sneaky) paid about 0.0003 creds a taco!

A pretty good deal if you really work it out!

For added fun here's the health information of 32.2 million tacos

Good thing that container got destroyed, or else Holley would have gotten so fat, she wouldn't be able to get in the cockpit anymore.

:yes: !wa is awesome.

Now, it would be interesting to figure out how many tacos were forced fed to the beta tester ...

Oh man. A TC2 is the size of a small building. A TC-TRI would be like... a skyscraper.... full of tacos... being force-fed to the beta tester.

Doing some quick calcs, a TC-tri has 8090200000 tacos. See: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=8090000000+tacos
