quick question to my math and science pals on mastodon. are there enough bones in voting republicans in the united states to construct a massive death pyramid or at least a walking goliath that i could use to stomp to work?

@Jewbacchus i am fuckin takin notes.

@Zoe they're mostly old people bones tho

@awmwrites *nodding* yeah i think i can work with this.

@Zoe

*Sigh* Ok here we go...

Number of Republicans in the US = 53% of Americans = 172,621,000

Bone density of the average human = 15% of the human bodies mass = 15% of 80.7 kg = 12.105 kg of bones per american.

172,621,000 * 12.105 kg = 2,089,577,205 KG OF BONES.

If the mass of a pile = m = ρ V

where P = Density and V = Volume then

V = p/m

The density of bones = about 3.4 kg/m^3

V = 2,089,577,205 / 3.4 = 614,581,530 m^3 of bones in a pile.

@Zoe I'm so sorry I'm so bored rn

@goat do not fucking apologize to me for art

@Zoe If the the base sides are 555m the height of the peak would be 5.985 Km high.

@Zoe Ahh, Each side would be 1.8 km long then,

@goat hmmm...how close to equal can we make the sides and height? keeping in mind i am bad at math.

@Zoe If this pile was a km on each side (Given a 4 sided pyramid) it would be 1.64 km tall.

@Zoe yes, definitely

Tinker, Tailor, Gamer, Wife@Absolutely_Blakely@radical.town@Zoe 🤔 what a puzzler!
