Comment Re:Glued to their damned faces ... (Score 1) 137

I have a coworker who even interrupts himself whenever his phone makes a sound. He'll stop talking mid-sentence and forget what he was talking about after he's finished fussing with his facebox or whatever. He'll ask to be reminded what he was talking about but never gets an answer. Like we're all supposed to wait in suspense for the rest of the sentence.

They never talk about energy excreted. It could be that different bacteria in different people's intestines may also burn more or less energy, which wouldn't be known without studying fecal matter. But I'm not volunteering.
