Some time ago, i made the mini-fillet challenge to one of my cowies - if he could eat 10 kfc mini-fillet burgers (at 99p each) i would pay for them. As it was he only eat 5 before he realised he wasn't going to do it and he gave up.

With Burger King currently running their Bacon Double Cheeseburger for 99p promotion i felt it was time for a new challenge. Obviously a BDC is no mini-fillet so this time the challenge was 5.

Iimpressively i can report that my cowie has risen to this challenge and despite slowing noticeably towards the end, was able to eat all 5.

That's a fairly impressive 2500 kcalories, and 850g of burger. Go dude.

I love to sit back and watch the fat guys in my office lurch even further into excess.

According to my calculations it's 3285 calories. Mostly from saturated fat.

Whoa that's...

I find one bacon double cheeseburger a bit too meaty and sickly.

Similair to the 100 pint challenge.

100 pints of lager in 1 week.

Sounds VERY easy - but I've only met one person who's completed it. This is a guy that managed to drink 50 VodBulls in one night. :vom:

Fair play! I think we have this weeks Nitro Day winner!


See, you know everyone has a bit of nitro in them!

Very easy? That's 14-15 pints per day!

Mr. Bas
23-09-2005, 14:06:33
That sounds quite doable...

A cowie who's really into running and triathlons and things like that told me about some competition that's being held every year in, err, Arizona I think. Anyway, the challenge there is that within a week, you need to drink both 100 pints of beer and run a 100 miles, in any order you wish. The first to complete both wins. He also knew someone who participated, and I think completed it. Now, that sounds like a seriously tough challenge.

Funko
23-09-2005, 14:07:02
It doesn't sound easy at all. I know some people at uni who attempted 50 in a week and that was a struggle.

100 a week is over 14 pints a day, that's pretty much continuous drinking for 7 days straight.

King_Ghidra
23-09-2005, 14:09:34
well if i recall what red fred was saying in the six pack thread, the amount of calories these road runners burn off is immense, so despite the fact that they might well get fairly pissed, i guess they could put down those beers over the course of 7 days of doing nothing else but drinking and running.

i'd imagine you might still have hydration problems though, you would surely piss away most of that beer.

Rodgers

together with most of the rest of the fluid in your body.

Drekkus
23-09-2005, 14:12:58
How much litre in one pint? 0.6? That's over 7 litres of beer a day. Normally a person would take in what, 2-3 litres of fluid a day? So 7 litres of beer for 7 days would not be healthy, I think.

The Higgelhoff
23-09-2005, 14:13:41
That's a pint an hour on average. Usually if you go out on the piss you consume about 3 pints an hour.

Funko
23-09-2005, 14:13:41
.568 litres for a UK pint. US ones are smaller.

A beer challenge that really is harder than it seems is the 100 shots of beer in 100 minutes challenge.

Mr. Bas
23-09-2005, 14:15:09
On second thought, it doesn't sound that easy. The 50 pints a week shouldn't be a real problem, that's about 7 pints a day... If you want to double that, you really have to start drinking at breakfast and keep on drinking the entire day.

Rodgers
23-09-2005, 14:15:16
But running 100 miles in Arizona heat is going to leave you serioulsy dehydrated before you even start on the beer. This sounds like a story someone makes up just to "top" the one you just came out with.

At my uni there was a 3 bottles of wine challenge which was you had to drink 3 bottles of the hall house wine (horrible) during the opening hours of the hall bar (8-11)

Totally impossible, I never attempted it but several people tried and vomitted hugely.

Mr. Bas
23-09-2005, 14:23:09
I still have to try that one sometime... I've heard from many people it's quite difficult.

So, how much beer is that in total?

do you think it would be possible if the wine tasted nicer?

a bottle per hour sounds doable

No. I reckon one bottle in an hour is possible but after that you tend to slow down...

Alcohol wise that's the equivalent of 12 pints in 3 hours

it was a contest

that was in undergrad

in grad I got in a content to eat a whole ice cream cake

then I decided to eat a good meal... so we called it off

there was a party being thrown at my house, and I got really really drunk (second time drunk for me by the way)

at some point people started talking about the ice cream cake, I said sure, brng it on

so they went and got an ice cream cake

the semi-gf of one of my freinds( and the instigator, the freind was, she is a freind too), as well as some others, expressed worry that I would kill myself... (Something about too much sugar?)

so the cake came, and I started eating it (no way in my state I was going to finish btw, I was so drunk that I was falling down all the time)

then some said (like that girl) that they would take it away, so then I licked the whole cake

then while I was eating it.. suddenly it was gone, the semi-gf had grabbed it (it all happened to fast I couldn't stop it)

she ran to our porch, and then crouched over it and started eating it...

my freind came arround, grabbed the cake and threw it into our backyard (Saying it was all ruined), they didn't talk for 9 months (They are dating currently)

of course, no utensils were involved

I couldn't manage 3 bottles in 6 hours. I'd be hugely pissed!

I drank a bottle of Smirnov Vodka in an hour; needless to say I was unconscious within 3 hours.

Mr. Bas
23-09-2005, 14:32:29
Three bottles of wine in three hours sounds deceptively easy as well. I guess when you actually try it, it's a lot harder than you thought it would be.

In the near future, we're having the adje-kratje borrel here at uni. The challenge there is to drink a crate of beer (8 litres) that night. In principle you can take as long as you want, but it's quite important to maintain an even pace and not to rush things in the early hours I'd say.

an undergrad (when I didn't drink) there was case day...

in it you were suppose to drink a case (24..) beers in one day

but you could take all day doing it

but there were a lot of pretty drunk people arround all that day

JM

Mr. Bas
23-09-2005, 14:35:02
That's the same idea as the adje-kratje, really. Starting out at 4 or 5 in the afternoon, and keep drinking until you finish it.

Funko
23-09-2005, 14:35:47
At uni whenever there was a Hall party we got into this tradition of going to the local Tescos, stocking up on crates of beer, and going to sit in the hampton common room (which no-one ever used). We had to drink 10 beers before we got to the hall party which normally started about 8pm. I don't think any member of the group made it to 10pm for any of the parties.

That's cos you the biggest lightweight I know :p


Three bottles of wine in three hours would induce vomit for me no problem (unless you talking sweet 8% German wine in which case that would be a piece of piss)


Thanks for brining that Chinzano incident up Mike (gettit?) I feel sick now. Still I had the best 1/2 hour of my life before I almost died.

you very very rarely see this type of driking games at Uni in France
People get hammered all right, but rarely in the context of a competition

I discovered that in my british university, as a post grad, and it was a huge surprise. I'd never have thought vomitting on your shoes would be the 'in' thing to do. There was an article on that in the economist about a month ago (how alcool consumption in Britain was on the rise, while it was dropping sharply in Italy and France). Drugs, however, were declining in Great Britain (somebody should tell Kate).

At 19, I once bought a half-bottle of vodka, and drank it on the 10 minute walk back from the offy. Then over the next hour I drank two bottles of Diamond White. Then I quietly got up, walked across the corridor to my room, and passed out stone-cold in the doorway.

I think I could eat about 100 KFC Honey BBQ wings in no time, beaks and all.

I used to eat a dinner plate sized chicken fried steak, smothered in gravy with toast, eggs, hashbrowns, the works, every Sunday. Then I'd lay on the couch and watch football, smoke pot and take giant craps all day.

Aaaah...the single life.

Same as. I have no idea how people can drink so much so they end up so wasted they fall about all over the place unable to talk and fall unconcious and so on. My body would give up several drinks earlier. "Whoa there protein! you're killing me, I'm ejecting this foul stuff before I die. But first I'm going to make the room spin and unlock all your unhappy thoughts first".

I occasionally do all three

I rarely black out though, and have only once passed out (if it has been 5 or so hours since my last drink, and a fall asleep drunk, at 4am or later, I don't consider it passing out)

the falling down and puking are par for teh course though

JM

23-09-2005, 21:22:24
I don't get unhappy, almost always

it is just that my motor skills go quickly (and are already bad)

generally I start hugging everyone at a point, this is mostly done to keep from falling down

JM

JM^3
23-09-2005, 21:24:07
and even my one time passing out was not required.. it was at the end of a long day and I was really tired.. so I decided to try and go asleep instead of sobering up some first

Are you a chair/corner pisser?
That's another drinking trait I've never understood...people get so fucked up they stagger into the room and piss in a chair, thinking they are in the bathroom or something.

I remember a guy in the dorms who went into the girl's bathroom, managed to get his pants around his ankles and then passed out cold on the floor...he was found by a gaggle of girls who then got cameras before they got one of us to get him out of there.
Poor guy.

24-09-2005, 00:21:49
no, I have never pissed on a location that wasn't outside, or in the toilet (and have only pissed outside (while drunk) a couple times)

would have been a little different if she hadn't been really drunk, and muttering about going to the bathroom

a freind grabbed her and pushed her towards the restroom, which she finished staggering towards, and used (successfully I think)

It's just a different survival trait. "Whoa, you're killing me! Emergency shutdown! And erase those traumatic memories too."
