View Full Version : Boredom on "No Work" days.

Did you know that no piece of square, dry copier or notebook paper can be folded in half more than seven times?
Ken (At lunch time, I sat in my parked car with sunglasses on and pointed a hair dryer at passing cars. Most of them slowed down. I think I'll give all of you a break and go to the poolroom.)
I'd say you're right about the paper thing. I only tried it twice but it seems you're right.
Kato~~~why did I do that?

Onion skin will fold more than 7 times =)

Do you know that it's almost impossible to eat a regular slice of white bread in one minute or less. If you want to put a fun wager on this, I will challenge you to try and accept the results on your honor. This should help you fill your day. =TB=

What's the catch? No water? I think I'd bet $100 that I could do it.
10-10-2002, 03:24 PM
Right, no water. You get 60 seconds to swallow all of it. It has to be all gone completely, (not counting something you would need dental floss to get out.) A regular piece of white bread. It just has to be a regular size piece, not an extra skinny one for weightwatchers. WonderBread is good or the equivilent. I'm not really much of a gambler SM, but I'll take $5. worth of that Benjaman just for giggles.

Supposedly, you also can't down a gallon of whole milk, and keep it down, in an hour's time.
10-10-2002, 03:38 PM
I don't like that "no water" stipulation. I'd hate to gag to death for $5.
10-10-2002, 03:43 PM
58 seconds. No water. No milk.

I also hear it's virtually impossible to crush a whole raw egg in your fist. Wrap your hand around it, and without digging in your fingertips, squeeze.
I told a guy this and he thought I was nuts. He came back the next day sheepishly admitting that he couldn't do it...
I think that would be an easy bet and I wouldn't even chew for the first 5 to 10 seconds. No I'm not going to dunk or wet it in any way. I don't ever buy white bread though.
can you get the onion skin in the shape of a square? I guess after cutting it that way, then how do you fold it without the skin breaking?

Good evening Ken:
You have too damn much time on your hands. Come to New York City and we will put you to work!

You can't visit Mexico for a day and not go to the bathroom 24 hours later. :-)

ummmm, there's a type of paper called "onion skin" sometimes also called "tracing paper" It's extremely thin paper. It will fold without breaking (if it's good quality) and, due to the thickness, it can be folded more times than regular paper.

OK Ken, Mr. Rackmup, here is an excellent way for you to start working off all that unpaid alimony you owe me! Link up with Barabra and become the office sports editor for the North Eastern Women's Tour. Put your talents to work and at the same time avoid my wrath!!!

I would be honored Barbara. Send me a ticket, ask Dr_D to get the couch ready and please arrange for trasportation while I am there.
I'll begin packing.
Ken (would love to be a published author)

You cannot fit more than three pool balls in your mouth at one time.

If a co-worker leaves his desk with his lunch sitting there, it takes approximateley 30 seconds to smash his potato chips into dust while still in the bag and shake his soda bottle vigorously. And the fun times when he returns are just the begining!

You'd better be careful Tom. If Spidey wins he might break into that hypnotic Spiderman Victory Dance! LOL /ccboard/images/icons/laugh.gif

I didn't time myself, but today I happen to have a slice of white bread with some peanut butter, and I definitely noticed a lack of saliva, towards the end of choking it down. The peanut butter might be giving false indication, but I think it could be done.
However, thinking a little further, I'm sure it would go much easier, if you pressed the slice flat, to minimize saliva absorbtion. It also might then help, to bite and swallow, with as little chewing as possible.
(Don't ask me why I bother to think about these things--it just happens.)
Has anyone brought up the "forty eggs" yet (this time)?

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote: heater451:</font><hr> I'm sure it would go much easier, if you pressed the slice flat, to minimize saliva absorbtion. <hr></blockquote>As I read the challenge, I figured I would spend my first 30 seconds wadding up the bread into a nice ball. Although I didn't try it, it does seem like it would go down more quickly that way.

Hey! It was 50 eggs. That was the bet in "Cool Hand Luke". And then you have to lay on the table like a Jesus on a Cross (for those of you who might have noticed the symbolism.) (For those of you who haven't, please take out your Cliff notes, it might have been covered, so please read...)
"It looks like a ripe wat'a melon ready ta burst!!" Thump thump!!
Barbara~~~would give Paul Newman the 8 and Spiderman the buffet... ! /ccboard/images/icons/laugh.gif!
10-11-2002, 08:18 PM
Well yeah! It's a lot easier to chew down in a ball. Did you make the time limit or what?
Barbara~~~wonders if she is being set up for a bet... ?

"Cool Hand Luke" one of the great movies... lots of great actors in the early years of their career..
One of the best Movies of 1967...
Her loose-fitting blouse with well-endowed breasts begins to open up and taunt them: "She ain't got nothin' but, nothin' but one safety pin holdin' that thing on. Come on safety pin, POP. Come on baby, POP." The men dig more vigorously as she heightens her own cleansing activity. Dragline prays to the heavens to sustain his eyesight just a little longer for the girl he names Lucille: "Hey Lord, whatever I done, don't strike me blind for another couple of minutes. My Lucille!...That's Lucille, you mother-head. Anything so innocent and built like that just gotta be named Lucille."
Knowing that she has a ripe and attentive audience, the blonde rubs the car harder and harder. In the most blatantly sexual act of all - the orgasmic conclusion to her show - she squeezes the white foam out of her sponge and rubs the soap suds across her abdomen:
Convict: She don't know what she's doin'.
Luke: Oh boy, she knows exactly what she's doin'. She's drivin' us crazy and lovin' every minute of it.
Dragline: Shut your mouth about my Lucille.
SPetty I figured my first 10 seconds for that move. New fresh bread really compresses. I don't have a slice of white but I'm sure 60 sec is no problem. Reminds me of a guy in the pool room years ago. He said he coud drink a can of beer in 5 sec or less. It was under 4 sec!
10-12-2002, 11:28 AM
Sorry, your not allowed to compress the bread before you start. Also, please be careful, it can be dangerous to try and swallow the bread without chewing it. It can cause choking. Tom

You could watch this video. It's guarenteed to alleviate your acedia.

Can you point with one hand across the front of your body and swing your other arm around while wiggling your fingers at the same time?
Carol from Staten Island, don't watch this.
Tunak tunak tun Tunak tunak tun Tunak tunak tun... Da Da Da
lol thats funny TomB now i got that damn song in my head

In the case with your guy, I would guess that the 'bottleneck' would actually be the can he was drinking from. Did he punch a "shotgun" hole?
(Sorry, to make this thread even longer, but it's still smaller than the one about Dr. D's lawsuit--which I haven't even read within. . . .)
Heater haven't watched that show. RIP is that our RIP? ha ha ha! Yep he did punch another hole, pretty fast can of beer! It's ok about this thread, we're dealing with cold hard facts. LOL The Dr D thread is pure speculation. Besides he drank this in a pool room. ha
But that ain't how we scoot 'em down at the Longhorn /ccboard/images/icons/wink.gif

Hmm .. Not sure exactly what you mean there, but if it's a challenge let's all go down to the Rio next May! BTW, I've never been out-eaten by anyone under 350 lbs (and never sat down at the table with anyone over 350!).
