Eskom spokesperson: "Good news and bad news. The bad news is that the shit is going to hit the fan. Good news is that because of load-shedding the fan would not be in operation at this time".

Question and answer on Quora today ( http://qr.ae/TUN7xQ ):

Question:
If the Eucharist, the communion wafer and the altar wine are transformed and become the body and blood of Christ, how much do I need to eat and drink before I have consumed a whole Jesus?

ANSWER:
Dave Consiglio
Dave Consiglio, My parents are recovering Catholics...and I'm a born once non-believer
Answered Aug 10

Oh you’re just trying to get me a BNBR, aren’t you?

OK, Jesus lived 2000 years ago, and he was poor. That means he was almost certainly smaller than the average man today. I’m going to go with just 60 kg.

Now, what about communion wafers. One of my favorite things about Quora is that the research I do to answer questions results in some amazing finds:

Amazon.com: Broadman Church Communion White Wafers - Cross Design (1 - 1/8") - Box of 1000 (10 Individual Packs of 100 Lord's Supper Wafers): Broadman Press: Home & Kitchen

You can buy hosts…ON AMAZON.

And this:

Nutritional Info of the Eucharist

states that a host weighs only 0.25g.

What about wine?

How much liquid can the average mouth hold?

Damn Quora knows EVERYTHING.

These answers suggest around 100mL is a full mouthful, but most people just sip the wine. I’m going with 25g for a sip of communion wine.

So, you’ll need 240,000 hosts or 2,400 sips of wine. Since one typically has one host and one sip at the same time, you’ll need:

J=.02525C

Where J = Jesus and C = Communion

Solving for C and plugging in our value for Jesus, we get:

C=39.6J

C = 2,377 communions.

Now, if you go to church once a week, every week, this will take about 45 years 9 months. Since most children don’t start taking communion until they’re around 8, and since very few people go to church every week, only quite old and very dedicated churchgoers are likely to consume one Jesus in their lifetime.

And this leads me to an unavoidable conclusion: THIS is how admission into Heaven is decided. Not only does the bread and wine transfigure into body and blood, but those atoms stay with you and are never lost. As such, when you die, a simple fractional analysis will determine what percentage Jesus you are.

My work here is done.
