*** NVG Low Content Thread: 1/3 less content than a regular NVG thread ***

Almost every other forum has one. Let's try one here. Post your questions about poker that don't need their own thread. Engage in friendly conversation with other NVGers. Don't be mean and troll.

What do you do for a living?

Apart from the poker 'pros' on 2+2, what do the recreational poker players on 2+2 do for a living? Myself, I'm in risk assessment....

I teach tennis. Used to be at a country club out in Myrtle Beach, but recently took a job near Columbus, Ohio. Couldn't be happier.

Negreanu prop bet

How much do you think it would take for him to be forced to eat McDonald's
Big Mac, Large Fries and Coke for three meals a day for one year.

This is a true story. I was working with a guy about 22 years ago in Las Vegas. He had colon cancer when he was younger and became a strict vegetarian. He got in such good shape that he was running marathons and competed regularly in The Boston Marathon. He was running near his home and some crazy guy hit him with a bat from a moving car. He was in a coma for several weeks. He recovered but he lost quite a bit from his memory. His personality totally changed and he started eating steak again. He forgot he was a vegetarian. He put on a bunch of weight and went from a marathon runner to a fat and out of shape person.

So how much money do you think it would take Daniel to go on The Supersize Me diet

When you think about it OP, you could really just substitute "one of you guys" for "Daniel" and post it on this forum:

Re: Negreanu prop bet

He would not die or likely have any major health implications. He might not even put on much weight.

Obv not saying it would be good for him but supersize me it would not be. All he has to do is exercise and not supersize every portion.

That said obviously it would take a lot of money for him to do it. Probably many many millions.

He would vomit a lot if he started to eat meat again. I have only been vegetarian for a year and just the smell of meat cooking makes me feel extremly nauseus. Also I think DN is a vegan for moral reasons not health ones so prob wouldnt take this bet for any amount of money

IDK you're looking at about 4500 calories per day.

Crammed into a little guy.

That's a whole bunch of exercising.
