You're not putting enough thought into this.

Biting three quarters of an inch off of a stack of 5 bars versus breaking off 3 inches of 1 bar, either way you wind up chewing a mouth full of chocolate.

Breaking off 5 at a time would only wear him out more quickly than 1 at a time, because in fact having to open your mouth wide and crush thick stacks of things is much more draining than small bites.

I'm not trying to pick a fight, but I'm right about this.

Watch some hotdog eating on espn. You won't see the champions stacking 5 dogs on top of each other -- even though omg that would be 5 times faster!

sock,

"Watch some hotdog eating on espn. You won't see the champions stacking 5 dogs on top of each other -- even though omg that would be 5 times faster!"

LOL, noob.

The great kobayashi breaks his hot dogs in half because eating two stacked halves is faster than one whole. You will also see competitors stack, dunk, and consume multiple buns together rather than sequentially.

no your not.

stacking is easier. And its easy to see why. If you bite off 3/4 of an inch of 5 bars, it puts the mass of chocolate into a much smaller surface area than biting off 3 inches of one bar.

your examples are also foolish, beacuse stacking 5 hotdogs is not possible. But if youve ever watched them eat hotdogs, they are sticking more than 1 into their mouth at a time, which according to you is "lol foolish"

Re: Is it possible to eat 15 hersheys bars in one hour?

the optimal way to do it would be to take tiny bites, and then a refreshing nap between each bar consumed.

In one hour this seems easy. Make it 15 minutes and I'd have my doubts. I'd gladly do this if anyone wants to bet

Yeah, 15 in an hour is way too easy. If Fatmongo's really thinks he can do 10 in 7 I'll think about taking that action. He's the guy that ate a million hotdogs in an hour, right? That chocolate is hard to swallow.

I would imagine it would ruin chocolate for about a year.

Did you miss this epic thread in BBV?

Cliffs: Dude eats 450 hot dogs in a month, throws up after the 449th dog but still gets the win because he was allowed a certain number of pukes.

I think I can do 10 in 15. I'm a legit skinny man so 10 in 10 may be out of my realm.

If they were eating m&ms they would put considerably more than 5 in at once. But so what? The dogs, yes, maybe two at a time, maybe one broken in half a la Kobayashi.

I concede it is a matter of opinion, but I've eaten some tough foes under the table in my day, and there is no way you'd catch me stacking 5 chocolate bars.

Anyway, the point of all this was, looking back at the original posts, people who were like... "Hmm... 15 candy bars... that sound tough; oh wait, I know! I'll put 5 on top of each other, then I just have to eat 3 big candy bars. No problem." Which is not the case.

Good luck everyone.

Edit: And anyway, El D, bringing Kobayashi into it is irrelevant; that is kind of like saying, lol, 100m in 10 seconds is easy, just look at Usain Bolt. Meh, not a perfect analogy, but what Kobayashi does or does not do when eating hotdogs is possibly not all that useful for mere mortals in figuring what technique will work best for them.

Re: Is it possible to eat 15 hersheys bars in one hour?

This is getting depressing. Our forefathers upchucked gobs of butter in living color and we can't get a decent chance of chocolate coming out of somebodys nose?

Can we get a fatty to save this thread and pony up for 15 or 20 in 10?

I weigh 10lbs more now than I did when I graduated high school back in 1990.

I think I could do this bet with no probs.
