My mom is severely allergic to mushrooms. I don't think that would help.

Most likely Evan also has vacuum sealers, which will extend some life even further. Additionally there are countless jars, some with food in them some empty, that he can pickle and candy, and do some canning himself. So with help from a pressure cooker (sold in many grocery stores and also available in the preparation areas), many sealed jar meals can be made from meats & veggies that would otherwise go bad even after preserving initially.

Well 2,000 calories a day is recommended Evan could probably survive on 500-750 calories a day

My supermarket also has soil. What if you used the potatoes to grow more potatoes? Would also work with onion since both are very easy to grow. The supermarket has many windows so sunlight is not a problem. You can make bread out of potatoes once you boil them and mash them, so he could use his fire which is close to the window to make bread or at least stretch out the flour supply by mixing potato and flour like in the medieval ages. In my opinion, if planned right and all works out with the crops, he could survive his entire life in that supermarket. He could also use all the spices in the supermarket which were never mentioned. But still a very great video since many of these things mentioned in the video never crossed my mind!

You underestimate the difficulty in propagating mushrooms... Especially cremini. Your numbers for mushroom propagation also bring on some assumptions about what else is growing there and you need a constant steady supply of a specific type of composted substrate... Different substrates will result in a variance in the bioefficiency which can result in vastly lower yields. In non-ideal conditions you can very quickly require 10x to 100x the amount of space to get the same yield of a crop of mushrooms. I do indoor grows of cremini and enoki mushrooms and am going to do an outdoor grow of oysters this summer (gonna try and avoid spore lung)

You would also need to sterilize human excrement before using it as a substrate and for some mushroom species human excrement will be toxic for unless heavily composted first to get rid of excess nitrates... Too much coffee grounds can also be toxic for mushrooms for the same reason. Finally, mushrooms are around 90% water and if you don't maintain surface conditions then they won't grow and will just abort. You cannot use yield values under ideal conditions to predict yields in non-ideal conditions

The questions specifically said LOCKED IN a grocery store so it’s kind of dumb to add rules about power & water but then say you can catch rain water. If the point of the question is to truly limit you to resources within the grocery store then the answer to the question really just relies upon how much water is found in a typical grocery store because that would run out long before food.

You can actually dig a hole in the ground to get to the soil and farm lol. Plus in the first days you can eat 20k calories/day of food that will spoil so you become a fatass and store the otherwise lost calories

Some things I think you missed: - These stores usually have back freezers in the back that are super well insulated and super cold, so if Evan was smart he could get all the quick spoiling food and move it all to the freezer, limiting the amount of time the door is open to the absolute minimum so it stays as cold as possible. He could also move all the bags of ice, frozen peas, and other frozen products into the freezer to keep it colder for longer. - Evan could slowly get soil from outside overtime and make a big garden on the roof of the store using all the seeds and gardening supplies that are already in the store. - Instead of eating the dog food and other pet food Evan could use this food to trap wild animals and get fresh meat that way. - If it was a Walmart or any other store that sells guns, he could also use the guns to hunt wild animals. - You didn't take into consideration food lost from pests such as Rats and bugs that can get into food. Evan would have to store the food somewhere pests cant get to them. - There are other ways of preserving foods such as pickling, Evan could have pickled a lot of vegetables using vinegar and made them last a lot longer that way.

he'll just have to make his diet 70% of the same mushroom.. ever tried frying up a pound or two of mushroom and eat that by itself? you dont want the last fork.. now imagine eating 70% mushroom at morning at night etc. ooh mushroom. you'd be super depressed from the fact that ur spending 67 years alone.. but then also the fact that ur eating the same food every day for those 67 years. id bet he'd drink all that vodka and suicide after max 20.

Spoilage is not something you have to calculate. The reason is that stuff will go bad while there are piles of food left to eat. So what you want to calculate is how long the eternal foods will last at maintenance level cal intake. Now if you can't drink out of the toilet (AKA no water access) all you have to calculate is the drinkable liquids in the store. Keep in mind that things like cans of soda will lose contents over the years. At 10 years you may half half full or less cans. At 10 years some may even be empty. Hard alcohol has 0 nutritional value. If you live off of only vodka you lose weight in a hurry (60lbs of muscle in 6 weeks in my experience). This is also the joke about Skinny Girl Vodka as you are just paying more for less vodka as the full test still will not put weight on you. Liqueurs and low test stuff can give you calories and questionable nutrients. Hard Liquor is also a lousy substitute for water as it dehydrates you. Farming is a non-starter. As liquid is your bottle neck already, your garden is dead. Urine? Anyone who has peed in the office potted plant knows that urine kills plants in a rather short amount of time. So while using you excrement, food that went bad, and torn up cardboard boxes, kitty litter, etc to make soil, may seem like a good idea, it is a wast of calories from the effort put into something that will fail. If you had power you could look at distilling your urine, but you don't. How long you live is also most dependent on who you are. Are you The Mountain from GoT or are you a petite woman? Sure it is not as big a difference as if the calories mattered but a big man will still go through more liquid.

Carcinogens are formed when oil goes rancid. Although there isn't much more danger in eating it then say food cooked at very high temps(grilled), after decades of eating nothing but, he will be consuming lots of carcinogens and will probably develop cancer.

Stores have tons of ice. You can probably just place some meat in there, which will give you some more protein for a while. This will probably last a few days before the ice melts. Also, when the ice starts to melt, you can just use it as extra water.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life." -John 3:16(bible) "the wages of sin is death"-Bible. Therefore God the judge has given man the death sentence due to man's sin, but because of God's mercy, he gave himself(god incarnate/jesus)to die on a cross for the sins of the world. That means he paid our fine and if we trust in him God can legally let us go guilt free in court/judgment day and have everlasting life with Him!

If Evan is able to make a fire, then he would be able to can the meat and vegetables in the beginning. He would just need a Dutch Oven and some glass jars. I’m pretty sure he can find all of those in a grocery store.
