Today’s episode promises to be CRAPPIER than ever – because we’re talking about The Martian. That’s no judgement on the movie, it’s just that the film is ACTUALLY full of poop and poop science. But the question is…is the poop science actually a load of crap? Hold your nose and dive in to discover if it is actually possible for Watney to survive on Mars like the movie portrays.

Like the theme song? Thanks to CARF!

    Didn't Matt Damon permanently mess up his body by only eating potatoes to drop weight? Now that is a Shamalan twist.

    7:45, that’s why I got so confused upon rewatching the movie after reading the book. In the book, Watney was clear that he would only use his own poop because all the pathogens in it he already has—he made a point of this! But I’m the movie, they had him also use his team’s poo? I didn’t understand.

    A person can totally live on just potatoes, I've actually lived on nothing but potatoes for just under a year and I'm still here. I've also lived on only watermelon for about four months and just bread for about three months.

    And it was not by choice. I have a severe form of a very rare genetic disease, and this has resulted in my inability to eat almost all foods. In a nutshell when humans breathe, eat, drink, ingest or absorb anything, the body sees this stuff as a foreign substance and uses proteins called cytochrome p450 (CYPs) enzymes to metabolize them. This is our natural detox system. CYPs are made up of another protein called heme (the same heme that makes up hemoglobin) and when my body makes heme it also crates a bunch a very toxic byproducts that poison my body and can lead to organ failure. Different things/foods require different amounts of CYPs and a few years back the only food I could eat without it causing extreme pain, sickness, and possibly death was potatoes. In fact up until just recently I've been living on only plain kifer for the last two years and did okay on that as well. Literally just last month I finally found two more foods I can eat, and I can eat potatoes again too, so now I'm able to eat/drink a total of four things. lol. Crazy, right?!

    Oh and I forgot to mention that the only way I could eat the potatoes without getting sick was to just boil them. Yup, almost a year of eating nothing but plain boiled russet potatoes. Not even salt added. Nothing….

    Anyway, a person can defiantly live on just potatoes – I'm living proof. You'd actually be amazed at what the body can survive on… I know I am! 🙂
