"It is possible to die from eating. But I think to be professional means you don't die." (Takeru Kobayashi)

I'm constantly emailing myself links of things to write about. Sometimes I actually end up writing about them, and sometimes I don't. Here's a few that I've found buried in my inbox:


Originally posted on Super Sized Meals, this guy tried to eat 27.5 Wendy's chicken nuggets, but alas, threw in the towel after just 26. What a slacker. Seriously, I try not to heap criticism on underachieving feats of eating (I've had my share), but 26 nuggets? I eat 20 piece boxes from McDonalds for breakfast -- with milk and sugar on top with a side of double Whopper.

But seriously, I've never tried more than 20 nuggets, so I guess I can't talk too much smack. Crap, looks like I'll have to go grab three 20-piece boxes sometime soon. I'm soooooo upset that I have to do this. I reeeaally wish there was some way to get out of this, but I guess I'll just have to do it and take way too many pictures and write about it on my blog. Stay tuned.


Hungover gourmet broke this story on his blog. Taco Bell is offering $12,500 in Taco Bell Bucks (the equivalent of a lifetime supply of diarr...tacos) to the first geek willing to trade in their precious PS3. Taco Bell will then donate the overpriced game system to the Boys and Girls Club.

I'm pretty sure someone already did it, but I emailed the folks at the Bell and told them I'd be willing to trade in my PS3. I don't have one, but if they take me up on my offer I'll buy one of several thousand listed on eBay (average going rate, around $1,000), trade it for my Taco Bucks and then sell the Taco Bucks at 50 cents on the dollar for $6,250. Or just keep them. I haven't decided yet.
