No one is disillusioned here GeorginaS. If you want to model it using spheroids, then show us your work, or be quiet.

38 pounds of M&Ms for $130

That would make it 19000 m&ms


BTW, moonbear, each one of those bags in your link was 3.25 pounds.

I say you pay about a thousand dollars for m&ms and see how much of the tank will be full...

The smart thing to do would be to fill most of the interior of the aquarium with something like cardboard boxes or styrofoam and then pour the m&m's around and over the top of them, giving the impression that the entire aquarium is filled. m&ms will go stale, you know. Not to mention attracting bugs and vermin.

It took three pages for smeone to think of this :bugeye:

That's brilliant! It's what they sometimes do in those "guess how many there are in here" things....

If you were to fill up the entire tank, I wonder if the M&Ms on the bottom would be squished...

Yes, I know, but the information they provided was the number of M&Ms per pound, not per bag. I don't really know why anyone, other than tribdog when he's been drinking and thinks the aquarium should be filled with candy, would want 3.25 lbs of M&Ms all at once! That's a lot of M&Ms to eat! :eek:

Well, that just means that the next time tribdog is telling us he has nothing to eat in the apartment, doesn't know how to fill a pot with water and turn a stove on, and needs something to eat, he'll have the stale M&Ms along with any additional protein they attract. :yuck: It still can't be any worse than that Mexican place he keeps going to even though he's convinced they spit in his food.

The last picture I saw... it was worse than saliva. He said it was at the bottom of his coke—he placed it next to a penny for size, and it looked like.. well, a miniature turd. I mean stool! The medical term.

Okay, fine, 31.25. :tongue2: 500 M&Ms/pound divided by 16 oz/pound = 31.25 M&Ms/ounce (and all those silly folks in feedback think you need LaTex to show your math :biggrin:).

Dunno about M&Ms, but when I was younger I used to collect Skittles. I never filed up a fishtank full of the stuff, but I did spill a cookie-jar full onto a hot stove once. After my Mother cleaned up the mess she made sure that I never saw of my beloved Skittles again :mad:

Why are M&Ms called M&Ms?

The candies were named for "Mars & Murrie" (Mars' business partner was Bruce Murrie, son of rival Milton S. Hershey's partner William Murrie.)

each small chocolate candy has a tiny white M painted on its candy coated shell. when you have two candies, you have an M and another M. together we refer to them as M&M's.

If I lick all the M's off does that mean they are no longer M&M's?:uhh:
