There’s a lot of things one can do with spare time. Clean your house, donate things you no longer have use for, fix things, binge watch TV/Netflix shows, play guitar, literally anything.

I found a fella on TikTok that's currently doing the lord’s work.

Supervillian_Unknown on TikTok is using modern science to do the unthinkable, count the letters in a can of ABC SpaghettiOs, analyze it, and see how many cans of said SpaghettiOs it would take to write The Lord of the Rings trilogy in it’s entirety.  

Could you have ever imagined all the times your parents told you to stop playing with your food to now see the ultimate in food play and science?  

Take THAT Mom and Dad.  

By the way this is real science at play here. He empties, washes and hand-counts each letter in one can of SpaghettiOs, lining them up in groups, followed by taking that data and throwing it into his computer for analysis.

As you can see, he figures out how he can write the book and also have SpaghettiOs left over to munch on. I’ll tell you now that he doesn’t actually write the book, but he shows all the raw data and how many it would take to write the whole book, and its staggering. 

It would take 8,795 cans of SpaghettiOs, which would cost $12,225.05 US. After the book is written, you would now have 8,134,609 SpaghettiOs left to eat.  

Is that too many SpaghettiOs to eat? That’s another story. Until we tackle that, you can watch him calculate this and the script to Bee movie as well in the TikToks below.
