calorie calculators

you know those little computers on the cardio machines?
the ones that you enter your age and weight into, and then they read your pulse while you work out?
how accurate is that number of calories it says you've burned?
i feel like, 'you don't know me, computer!'
but if you think i burned 300 calories in 20 minutes, then i'm down!
