-- dude, I coulda told you. 38 eggs in one sitting, NOT wise.

This is tragic and sad but somehow amusing. Some guy choked down 38 soft-boiled eggs in a competitive eating contest and then had a stroke. (He did, however, recover and was able to return to his beloved "sport.")

From Scientific American's article "Death by steamed rice bun"

Humm... 38 eggs? As gross as that is, it sort of inspires me to try to top him. That's a lot of eggs.

Once in college I offered a guy $20to eat a pound of butter. However, he only made it half way through the sticks before he had to stop. Since he didn't finish I didn't have to give him a dime.

I feel a little guilty about that now...
