    Brag worthy?

    So a buddy got to trash talking about how could eat more wings than me, of course I am not going to back down from a challenge.... Off to Quaker Steak and lube to settle this.

    He went Beast and ate 40 some wings. I hit the wall at 22. I knew I wouldn't eat more wings than him going into it... I am probably 10 inches taller and 90 pounds lighter than him. But, I thought what ever lets do it.

    He then went to bragging for a good 15 minutes, then I said it's my turn to pick a contest.... I was like let's run, jog, kayak something like that. He declined, said who cares who is better at that stuff..... Seriously, he said that... Who cares!

    So the question is, is slamming 40 some chicken wings and two or three glasses of pop bragging material???

    Where have we gone, that eating more than another person is brag worthy?

    I offered to buy him a trophy with a pig on top of it, he declined.

    No...being a glutton is not talent...I eat super small portions and can't eat large amounts even of I try. I don't feel inferior in any way.

    I seem to be able to get fatter than most people on less calories. Go me.


    On the other hand I can usually go for hours and hours on end without having to pee. Yay for talent!

    He thought it was, I am curious to see if any other here do as well. Different people think different things are cool or enjoyable.

    There are eating contests all over the world. A lot of people must think it is cool. I have watched Nathans hotdog contest two or three times, not because I think it is cool... To be honest not sure why I watched it?

    I have more hobbies than I do time to do them. How does me needing another hobby relate to this? You lost me a bit there.

    I'm trying to not put so much food in me and trying not to get too far out of shape. Eating contests are of no interest to me.

    For the record...... I have no interest in drinking contests either. I like to get there slowly, not be the guy drooling on the bar at 8:00 PM.

    The only thing I find amusing about eating contests is that small, thin people often do better than big folks. Well, and the fact that anyone would purposefully eat more than one hotdog is amazing to me.

    Okay, I admit too that the eating contest bit in the story The Body was grossly entertaining. Sigh.

    It sounds like he is a short fat guy. In all seriousness, what else would he ever have to brag about and why on earth would you want to race a short fat guy just so you can say you won? lol

    I can visualize the whole thing. You are at a party and you point to the fat guy and tell those around you, " I kicked his *** in the 100 yard dash the other day" and they're thinking, "Wow, Buckeye, that is really impressive...almost as impressive as eating 40 chicken wings."

    Sounds like the guy lacks other talent and is trying to improve his self-esteem besting someone at something he is good at. It is a pretty big stretch to be chest pounding for more than 15 seconds about eating wings.


    There is no off-season to bowhunting.

    buckeye, you're right.... some people may think that stuff is cool and worthy of some sort of attention. Usually, there is a point in ones life where they out grow those sort of things. It happened to me when I was raising children. If it wasn't something that I would encourage my kids to do, I didn't pay much attention to it. They lost their value.
