Japanese champ eats 97 burgers in 8 minutes

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15497231/?GT1=8618

They aired the competition on ESPN2. Takeru Kobayashi at the start of the contest was eating 2 burgers every single 5 seconds.

97 Burgers is around 20 pounds worth of weight.

And if you have seen this kid, he is ripped! I met him in D.C., couldn't believe the eating feats he was capable of.

I tried to get a picture of this guy but all I saw was the reporter telling about the events.

He must be hugh and I thought I needed to lose weight. I can't believe he ate 20 pounds worth of weight.

How much of that 20lbs is fat? And how much of it is trans fat? Not destined to live a long life, I'd say.
