What IS this fascination with eating large amounts of food? It's kinda weird, and a bit fascinating. Is ANYONE immune to it?

We used to do it on the varsity baseball bus, so I would've been 16-17. The ride was 30 min by car, so maybe add 10-15 cuz it was a bus. I ate a 12" assorted sub, a 12" pepperoni stick, an entire 1lb tray of vanilla creme sandwich cookies, and a 20oz orange Faygo. Got it all down still one town over, maybe had 7min left to go.

I remember the rest of the ride thinking that was not a good idea. About the time I got off the bus and into the car, I was ready to party. Think I spent that night playing basketball and that night-night drinking Old Grandad until 0300.

Youth is wasted on the young.




I was 17 when I started college, and was the only guy on the football team not legally allowed to drink. As such, I missed out on a lot of bonding. One night we were at a Seniors house and they were talking about a drink they had in Florida called a Cherry Motherftrucker. Two ounces of 151 Rum, two ounces of Gailiano, two ounces of Yukon Jack and a few others. It was drunk like a shot. Stupidly, I volunteered to have one. Downed it in one gulp. Was sick for the rest of the weekend.

Sorry I have to call bull, 200 is not possible.

I don't know about that.

How many nuggets equal one hot dog?

Joey Chestnut ate 70 dogs with buns last week...



How much did he earn for eating those 70 hot dogs?

To eat 200 would be very tough, requiring about a month or so of practice; not a sure thing like 100 or 150, but it is possible. PG, what number do you think is possible?

Just going by weight 70 hot dogs would be about 400 chicken nuggets.

That would make 200 sound possible, though very tough. Consider what it would take to reach a level around 50% of an Olympic athlete

Personally I don't think you could do 150. I think you are underestimating how disgusting those "chicken" nuggets are.

My willingness to do 150 (or attempt 200) depends on potential profits. I already know I can do it, it just requires the right incentive

Congrats, Impressive job on the pancakes. If you are willing to attempt 200 I would be willing to put some money up for a bet.

Hmmm ... If *in fact* you already know you can do it, would it make sense to bet against you?
