After Jim Harrison and a buddy of his won a bit of money from an online poker tournament they got to chatting about what they should do with their winnings. One of them suggested spending it all on hot dogs. From there the conversation turned to how many hot dogs one could consume….and from there how many an individual could consume in a month.
Jim, a 22-year old a McMaster University student, thought that it would be possible to eat 450 within a month while his roommate suggested 480. With the debate now on the table someone decided to put money on it as well. Jim really felt he could eat 15 hot dogs (on average) per day, each day, for the entire month. How much money would it actually take to go through with this bet? If Jim is successful his pal has to cough up $1,500 and if he fails Jim will owe him $1,000.
There are a few rules, mainly that all hot dogs much be consumed in front of a live web cam as proof. Each hot dog has to eaten with a bun but he can put whatever toppings on it that he wants…and he can only throw-up 4 times throughout the month…none of which can be self-induced.
Jim says he tries to eat 6 hot dogs for each meal, which he has 3 of a day. This pace had put him at 317 by the 3 week mark. Meaning this last week he must consume the remaining 133. He seems pretty confident that he can make it. When asked what he’d eat as his first meal after the best he responded, “Probably a quarter-pounder meal from McDonalds.”
If you’d like to watch a meal of his live you can head over to his Justin.tv page. The picture below is a view of his stash in the fridge towards the beginning of the month.
You think your password of “password” or “sex” is secure but it’s not. Hackers will get into your computers and it’s easy. Watch this terribly informative video c.1990 to see exactly what they do and what they are capable of. Hackers have incredible abilities and will stop at nothing to infiltrate your network. You have been warned.
This is one of the most creative videos I’ve seen in a bit. They’ve taken your favorite famous paintings (Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” & “Vitruvian Man”, Georges Seurat’s “Bathers at Asnieres”, Reverend Robert Walker’s “The Skating Minister”, Johannes Vermeer’s “The Girl With The Pearl Earring” and Édouard Manet’s “Bar at the Folies Bergeres”) and made them all into 3D works of art. It’s extremely creative and very funny.
Just try to read this and not hear the wonderful voice of the late, great Phil Hartman. With all the various oddball characters in The Simpson’s, everyone has their favorites. I’ve always like Troy McClure, he’s so laid back and easy going. I always wondered about all the places I “might remember” him from though…now I know. I almost like him as much as I like this guy, but certainly not as much these guys.
Which of the Simpson’s characters is your favorite?
I’m a fan of Star Wars and also a fan of Avatar but not necessarily when you combine the two…although I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen them brought together. I can however appreciate the work and effort put into this. The helmet was made by artist Denise Vasquez for the 501st TK Project and will be used by Lucas Films as a promotional item.
It’s a really cool concept and I like the idea behind it…it’s just that it kind of creeps me out. I really love the dreads of the Na’vi but the Stormtrooper mask does not lend itself to good looks. I’ll bet there are more than a few Star Wars fanboys cringing in their robes right now.
That’s a really boring title but it’s because I know this is really an attempt at a viral campaign from Dulux and I’m a little reluctant to ever forward along things that try to be “cool” or “edgy” and at the same time are produced by a large corporation and marketing agency. Either way…I must admit that this video is really pretty impressive. Give it a watch and let me know what you think. It’s bright and colorful, inspiring a little bit and the song is really good too.
Now that you stood inline for over 12 hours, overnight, at your nearest Apple store, waded through all the other Mac geeks, resigned a 2-year contract, turned over your hard earned cash to two large corporations…you’ve now got your precious iPhone 4 in the palm of your hand… oops…doesn’t work in the palm of your hand. To handle that, here is your pictorial “Idiots Guide to Holding the iPhone 4″:
