  • So is the sleepiness that you get the same as the aftermath of hyper from sugar

  • I've yet to see a moderately sized grocery store that has openable windows. For security reasons, they're all sealed shut. This makes the real question, how much water is in a grocery store (as in percent from sodas and plants)?

  • 0:11 he’s right I can’t unsee that

  • Maybe if he was a villian i might just use a straw just drink his whole juice maybe to have a stuffed belly just to be safe

  • You should tell them how the original mcdonald's got fucked over

  • D... Don't ask.

  • Why couldn’t he make a compost bin with the old foods and plant any seeds from the older/canned fruits. (Aka surviving infinitely)

  • My heart when MatPat didn’t pronounce Louisville “Lou-ee-ville” 🥰💕

  • Please, I’m just trying eat. I don’t need to know everything.

  • I love kool aid but i guess he's a giant mug of red juice he's friendly :)

  • As a fan of alcoholic beverages and spicy food, I knew you were in for a disaster when you got to the alcohol as a fix

  • Hi dad Pat can you please help me take down project zorgo

  • Everyone gangsta till Oreo comes clean and confesses to this

  • Is ordering groceries for pickup not a thing in the US?

  • I’m an f I take the center part out and eat it separate

  • People started boiling water for tea and coffee, thus purifying made us live longer, and less of us died overall..that was the main reason

  • Umm one oversight the ice costs them more

  • how long could you exist in the wild kinda like minecraft

  • Food theory idea: how much food would Saitama have to eat based on how much more his muscles need energy and fuel?

  • I got so scared because cole my name

  • i’ve always wondered this omg

  • Why did one minute into the video I'm already thinking on how to scrub. The dirt of my knees with a sewing needle

  • Theorista, 63.3 years later huh? Well, better late than never.

  • Who came from Milad who makes subway sandwiches? 🙋‍♂️

  • How long can you stay in a restaurant with no power

  • Why does matpat resemble jake's personality from b99 lmao <3 y'all are so great

  • Food theory:how long can you survive at a farm

  • Dessert is spelled wrong

  • Soda

  • Bacon burger bread bbb

  • 6:21 Excuse me an open window.... Why did he have to survive he could just escape

  • He could honestly plant food right? My grocery store probabaly has enough stuff, and if we can take water from outside surely we can get some dirt EDIT: Oh ok cool

  • Cap'n Crunch is a pirate

  • Food Theory idea: What brand of pancakes make the fluffiest and tastiest pancakes

  • Is it odd that the married couple look and act like siblings?

  • Save the cat!

  • So my Science class had this debate so my teacher look it up and the food theory came up so then we were done with our work so we ended up just watching the food theory!

  • Food Theory Idea: If you were the size of an ant, how long would it take to eat a full Thanksgiving Feast?

  • For someone who hates math, I love solving these as he goes. These always make my day. Thanks again, Mat!

  • Food theory idea: how long can a human survive in a fast food restaurant

  • as long as the water and sewer kept working. Years. no problem. Your primary limitation (maybe lifetime) is water and sewage. Rain only works if you are in a place that GETS lots of rain :-)

  • MatPat: Man we weren't able to prove that bread gloves aren't better than gloves.... Me: You used MITTENS. YOU SHOULD'VE USED GLOVES MATPAT.

  • As a burger king employee i find it hilarious that there's an entire video on this lol .We're told to put as much ice as possible and fill it up all the way . There's always a McDonald's in a 1 mile radius of burger king just go there . the drinks there are only $1 .

  • What if the pizza dough is made wonky then when cooking it it “lets say looks like an egg” and is cut then re-arranged to make a circle ?

  • Imagine if it was a Costco

  • SODA

  • I never started diet soda. Hated from the start.

  • How about Arbys? I know my place that I work at has a self filling system for our drinks for the drive through.

  • This feels a lot like the beggining of the restaurant wars that homoginized the restaurant industry in that old Stalone movie

  • d

  • I have been saying for years that kroger soda is the best. they even use real sugar if you don't go for the diet

  • Can confirm mattpat, I used to work at a fredmyer, they do indeed have a similar taste to what you described for the Diet Coke, they sell for 99 cents in most freddys.

  • Food theory idea: how much pounds can you gain before you get a heart attack

  • Oh my gosh the whole stolen valor made me face palm because the calendar is made up but with the John lafoot thing and the dog made me think

  • I once saw a guy on dr. Phil who pretended to be in the military

  • They have to have been acting with the Vodka, like that would have been extremely stupid of them NOT to expect the HIGHLY CONCENTRATED Alchohol to burn.

  • Omg the new villain kolthos

  • I'm trying to figure out how many mugs this video used

  • Food Theory Idea: Is there one food you could solely live off of? I was wondering because I was watching a my strange addiction episode and the girl only ate and made potatoes. She made them in a specific way and only ate that and drank water. Is she getting all the nutrients she needs? Is there a food out there that I could eat for the rest of my life and get all the nutrients I need out of it to thrive? It’s been bugging my brain.

  • D: Soft Drink (Y)

  • Well not forever because compost loses its energy and that's why farmers have to renew it with phosphorus and other things that create problems like run off. Great video though I can't think of many people who work as hard as you for your fan base

    • You are also forgetting that he is going to try to eat as much as possible of the meats and dairy before they expire not just the recommended intake of 2000 calories
