okey so i was watching dan vs and i got to the episode where dan bought a fuckton of explosives to blow up the animal shelter (god damn it dan) and i got to thinking
how much fucking dynamite did he fucking buy anyway
so this is the price plus the 30% tip, which is to say that this is 130% of the price of all that dynamite he bought

with a little basic math i figured out that he paid $3700 for that dynamite. assuming that this includes a sales tax given that they were purchased at a supermarket (california’s sales tax rate is 7.5%) we can assume that $3700 is actually 107.5% of the cost of the dynamite before a tax

so before sales tax and the tip, the cost of the dynamite was approximately $3441.86 (it gave me a decimal and i had to round; the original decimal was actually 3441.860465… and so on)
according to chacha, the approximate cost for a single stick of construction-grade dynamite is $80. this means that dan…

…bought 43 sticks of dynamite to blow up that shelter
a single stick of dynamite can put out one MJ (megajoule) of energy, or the force of a one-ton vehicle moving at 100 miles per hour
which means that his purchase put out 43 MJ of energy when detonated all at once
the ensuing explosion would demolish his entire fucking street
dan what are you doing
dan stop
