AlwaysWoW! For a Great Great WoW in Life

Thoughts from me about things that are cool, that are WoW, that blow me away. Observations about businesses and people from a wide variety of life. Daily encounters - and thoughts outside the box, inside the box and without any box. New thinking, and challenging old thinking. Passionate about life, about respect, and about integrity.

The greatest eater on Earth

Argh - I don't think I want to do this for a living. A 26 year old Japanese (who is slender, weighting 60 kilos), vowed to eat 69 hamburgers in eight minutes - no mentioning if it is Ramli Burger, Bic Mac, Cheeseburger or Chicken Burger.

He is the undefeated champion in hot-dog eating competitions as well and plans the "line-extension into burger competitions" (my editions). Other eating records: he holds "records for eating cow brains -- eight kilos (17.7 pounds) in 15 minutes -- and traditional Japanese rice balls at nine kilos (20 pounds) in half an hour."

And, what's more, he is doing this fulltime - and took home US$10,000 in a recent competition.

Well, I surely can think of better ways to earn a living. That's not a WoW for me.
