With our diverse and massive population, we are able to not only kick ass at the Olympic games, but also in supreme gluttony.
This is of course, labeled under sports, whether or not it should count as one is hard to say, but one thing is for sure: This man loves himself some wieners.
I still shake my head at the fact that competitive eating is considered a "sport."
I agree with you. I am always thinking why?!
P.S. I also think that it is wrong that they encourage this by recording it as a record. But, maybe that’s just me.
I think it's a gamble. They either die choking, become ridiculously obese (like those people from TV shows that need surgery to avoid dying), gain a good deal of money from winning, or everything at the same time, though not necessarily on the same order.
I can't say anything, though. I eat things so quickly i wonder if i actually chew something (no duwang intended).
"Jaws" does this every year.
Well, looking at the top competitive eaters, they don't seem to be fat at all, so no, it seems pretty unlikely they'll become obese. Choking also doesn't seem particularly likely, because of all the health officials they'd have on hand. If anything, this seems like by far one of the safest sports people do. I mean, it might be terrible for them overall, but not in the ways you mentioned, and hell, given the risks of other sports, it's definitely not the worst.
I'd say it'd help, but most of the work would be in actually keeping that shit down. If you're hungry, even not trying to go fast you can really wolf some shit down. It's only after you get full shit starts going wrong. Anyhow, should your faux asexuality ever fade, feel free to ask for tips.
I've always assumed they must puke it up afterwards. I don't see how their bodies could cope, otherwise.
