I'd take that challenge, and even if I fail, I would still win.

Did that 'woman' feature a moustache and work as the Director of an Indiana' city's Parks and Recreation department?

PS - We can also discuss my future "666" save/"like" service, but since your soul is involved here, I'll have to ask for at least for a 7.5% commission.
Sorry Jean, seems people were busy boosting me past the 666 point while I slept - I never got the, umm, opportunity to accept your "offer"

Polyglass spikes it looks like. It's a thing in the more extreme body jewelry because it's pretty hypoallergenic. The jewelry doesn't shock me but the fact that she's still alive after eating all that does. Our arteries and gall bladder are not set up for eating that much fat in one sitting. That's a heart attack or gall bladder attack on a plate really, no joke. This contest it's really stupid and dangerous. I love bacon too but not enough to risk that.

Yeah! They should be using hotdogs instead! Much safer since they just pass right through without stopping!
Besides, everyone knows a real eating contest is with hotdogs!

I flew west over the Pacific many times on United. Until last year they were STILL using 747s which you needed binoculars to see the screen down the front. They chose to inflict "man vs food" on us while travelling over Vanuatu, where it is always turbulent. Not a good taste choice! I find the idea of eating just to demonstrate how much I can eat to be a rather distasteful activity. Last year I was on one of their last 747 flights. They now use 777 for that route.

My uncle was the lead electrical engineer at Boing until the 727, when he retired. Sad to see they are starting to take his planes out of service. He was so very proud of those planes.

I flew on 727's quite a few times. Then, of course, many flights on 737's. My favourite airplane is still, and probably always will be the 747. In the days before 9/11 I even managed to fly in the cockpit on a 747, on the jump-seat.

Ah, the good old days! You could walk anywhere at the airport. You could stand outside to watch the planes. Unhappy TSA agents with rubber gloves didn't exist! Although they could make a killing offering discount prostate exams while you're checking in now!

I've heard the horror stories, but I've never had an issue with TSA. It's been my experience that it's the airlines themselves who have gone out of their way to make flying a very unpleasant way to travel.
