Homeade Tuna Sandwich Vs. Subway Tuna Sandwich Costs

By Chongchen Saelee

Homeade Tuna Salad Sandwich

Ingredients purchased from Walmart

Subway Tuna Sandwich footlong as of 9/24/2016 is $6.95

Cheese Bread 4 rolls $3.00
Each roll is approx 6 inches x 2 equiv of footlong = $1.50

Helmann’s mayonnaise 15 oz jar $2.98

Great Value mild cheddar slices $2.22

Mushrooms $1.38

Celery heart $2.18

Great Value Light Chunk Tuna 4-pack, 5 oz each, $2.96

Cucumber $0.58

Tomato x 3 = $1.88
So one tomato = approx $0.63

Red Onion $0.81

So approx 20 oz of tuna including all ingredients looks to serve about 5 six-inch equiv sandwiches.

Sub-total $17.49

$17.49 / 5 = $3.49 per six inch

$3.49 * 2 = $7 footlong WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY

Time wasted grocery shopping and prepping about 1 to 2 hours.

Subway sandwich is only 5 minute drive and would include olives, spinach, vinegrette, pickled peppers, provolone and american cheese, 5 herb toasted bun, and can be made in less than 15 minutes

However, making it yourself allows you to add as much tuna per sandwich as want. In this case, I put almost same amount that would go into a Subway footlong into a 6-inch cheese bread roll. So maybe there’s more value in that.

Then again, as for time management, now I have enough pre-made tuna salad I can eat for next few days without having to drive to Subway. It evens out time and money.

Dude Makes Homeade Exoskeleton Suit

http://www.engadget.com/2014/08/31/homemade-weightlifting-exoskeleton/

The dude can lift up to 170 some pounds “easily” but as I watch him do it, I noticed that it would be physically impossible if he didn’t already have the legs to support the weight. It’s all physics. He mentions this at the end of the video that he wouldn’t be able to lift 300 pounds. That defeats the purpose of an exosuit. You shouldn’t require your own effort. The Japanese and DARPA already have one that look like a folded out toilet but that one looks too clunky and slow. Cool effort though. No real reason anyone should ever need one in day to day life.
