    My co-workers were talking about some of these impossible stunts today. Are they really impossible?
    Any tricks?
    Any other good stunts?

    A gallon of milk in an hour impossible? Hardly. I've done that many times over the course of my life. A gallon in 10 mins maybe is a better example, but an hour?

    Well I had a friend try the milk trick and he did it in about 30 minutes. Well in around 5 minutes......it was all up again. I have heard that if you try to drink over a gallon it will curdle in your stomach. The cracker trick doesn't sound too hard.

    5 Saltine crackers (without water) in one minute is absolutely impossible. I know it sounds easy, but its actually the quickest way to win/lose a bet. 5 Saltines in in 5 minutes may not even be possible. Most people end up having to spit the crackers out. Can't think of any others at the moment. TF

    A whole bag of salt & vinegar potato chips in 10 minutes or less. I don't think it can be done.

    A friend of mine is absolutely obsessed with this type of stuff. Every time we're out to eat, he's always saying something like; "How many french fries can you eat in 10 minutes? I'll bet you $20 you can't eat 4 boxes." I never go for it, because I'm not a big fan of puking. He's gotten a couple of his other friends to try stuff. The only one I remember was he got a guy to try to drink a half gallon of egg nog in 15 minutes. He puked it up of course. My friend is a weird guy, I think he just likes watching people barf.

    That is how long it just took me to inhale 5 saltine crackers swallowed. I would say that is pretty good for the first time.

    There's a place in Portland, Oregon where if you eat their 72oz steak with all the trimmings (salad, potato, bread)in one hour, they'll give it to you for free. They have pics on the wall of people who've done it and you would be surprised by some of them. Little old ladies, huge fat men and everything in between, sitting in front of an empty plate looking like they are going to hurl.
    I've never tried it 'cause if you can't do it you have to pay for it.

    I remember in high school (mid 80's) trying to eat $10 worth of Taco Bell. That was food only. You could have a drink but did not count in the total. In todays dollars that would be about $15. I failed the first time and barely made the second try.
    A friend of mine did $10 worth of White Castles.

    A local radio station did the gallon of milk in an hour trick and all the contestants hurled. On the radio show they said it's because your body can't handle so much lactose in such a short timespan.
    I'm going to try the saltines trick. [​IMG]

    At first I scoffed at the idea of not being able to do 5 saltines in one minute. But when I noticed it took 20 seconds just to get the first one down I realized I was in for more than I could chew... [​IMG]
