Yeah, I read that too.... It so sad and disgusting it is unbeliavable. I don't understand why people have to be such gluts and so wasteful, especially considering there are people in our society have barely have enough to eat. Of course, I'll probably be branded a lefty Liberal or something to that effect for having said that...

Us wealthy people aren't that responsible for poor people. It's nice to help others out, but it's not our job. If people want to spend 50 bucks on a steak that's bigger then their tit, then that's fine with me. If someone wants to spend 1000 bucks on a crack rock, that's fine with me. As long it doesn't hurt anyone but themselves physically, or they don't harass anyone verbally, then as Ben Harper once sang "If You Don't Like My Fire, Then Don't Come Around...Cause I'm Gonna Burn One Down."

A chain called Fatty Arbuckles here in the UK used to have a similar challenge. Called the 'Belly Buster', you had to eat a starter of Prawn Cocktail, Onion rings and garlic mushrooms, followed by a 50 oz steak, massive pile of fries and coleslaw, followed by a litre of ice cream for dessert. If you finished it, you got the meal free plus a T Shirt proclaiming your success. I had a friend (not overweight at all) who not only successfully finished it all, but also ate some of my fries. About an hour and a half after, he ate a large doner kebab on top of all that. And he ain't no fat b*stard!
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?
