how many packets of crisps do you think you could eat in ten minutes? i reckon i could eat at least 20.
can we have a crisp eating competition?
Who was there? Did I make that up.
In answer to your question, JJ, you'll need to specify a gramme weight for these packets.
but not those multipack imitations, like, a proper normal packet.
He's looking for a number in grammes.
They all choose different weights.
And when they say '15% less fat or whatever' you'll generally find that's because the packet weighs 15% less...
How can you find time to post this waffle when there is a thread about stamps that needs to be made into a sticky.
Do you have a superior, I want to complain.
Do you work for the internet? If so, how should I address a letter to the internet? Is 'Dear Internet' too formal?
But I know he's reading this!
lavish them with facts and figures.
what with this one and Bamos's blue balls.
If its something sharp like Walkers, I would not want to try it through fear of cutting my mouth up quickly. I think I could eat about 10 packs on wotsits or skips or quavers in the 10 minutes.
You'd be quite thirsty afterwards.
they're so thin you can stack them up like pringles and eat half a bag at once.
12 packs = approx. 300g - no more in mass than a cone of chips. should be easy.
Because I iamgine they'd delay proceedings a fair bit.
Quite a lot I reckon though I don't think I could compete with sheeldz, McCoy's are in a whole other league.
Congrats sheeldz, you're a champ.
They just dissolve! Skips would probably be the best. They have the right amount of crunch but can dissolve with a tiny bit of saliva.
but then surely they'd drain your saliva resources and the percentage of bits in teeth would slow you down. I'm sure they're a short term quick eat but long term they'd be a bitch. Not Skips though, they're the exception.
Wotsits to have the ability to make all your teeth flat. They fill all gaps.
Walkers or any other hard crips would just be dangerous to eat fast. Your mouth would get cut to bits!
would probably result in death.
Just the thought of accidentally swallowing one of those sidedays really freaks me out!
or do you have to eat them properly? If properly i dont reckon i could do much over 15.
...surely in a formal competition there can be crushing involved?
Have you seen those hotdog comps where they just shove the meat down their necks and dunk the bread in water?
We should establish some rules.
I reckon if crunching and "drinking" the crisp dust was permitted I could bang 15-20 away.
How's that gonna be policed?
Sometimes you buy a bag of crisps and they've already taken a beating in transit. This could be an unfair advantage?
What about tearing open the bag and shoving them in?
Are you suggesting that for a clean crisp munch to qualify it'd involve one insertion of the hand/finger into the packet and the removal of a single crisp?
You clearly haven't thought this through (!)
eat them how you want. i hold no responsibility for the outcome.
I still hold true to my 15-20 estimate.
I wanna see this happen. I'm in.
Can it be arranged for the next Zonino or something?
i've just eaten three packets in about as many minutes, oh dear.
FAT BUT HAPPY!
I went out with a mongol sister's Lesbian friend
(or the more politically correct "famous DJ's sister's friend")
I was on Crackerjack at the age of 10
And I saw the Sex Pistols play at the 100 Club
And I spent New Year's Eve at Sensible's den

Preposterous Tales in the life of Ken Mackenzie
I lost a £1,000 playing brag last night
I flew to Amsterdam to start a riot
And I once saw the Palace score 4 goals away from home
and I've won every game of Trivial Pursuit I've ever played
I once ate 6 mars bar in half an hour - Oh did you Ken
And whilst working on a site I unearthed a bomb - Oh did you Ken
And I once had a shower with two American girls
at the same time Ken?
Naw that's preposterous
hmm, touch question. in one sitting i could easily eat 20+ though.
I like to think that some has tried this, then tried again to verify the answer and will shortly post here for peer review.
It's a fucking sham.
"As a 17 year old University of Queensland student in 1969, Paul Tully became the world potato crisp eating champion downing 30 packets of crisps in 24 minutes 33.6 seconds without a drink.??"
the average stomach has a capacity of 1 litre. theres what, 250 grams in each packet of crisps? so rly, 4 or 5 packets before your stomach cant do its thang naw more.
i comfortable eat 3 packets every now and then
35g is the average weight? right, well then, should be technically possible to eat 28.5714286. that doesnt seem a reasonable amount of crisps to eat tho, and its unlikely you'll have a totally empty stomach...
anyone want to go a day without eating, then try and eat 29 packets of crisps? for science you understand
1kg of crisps doesn't equal 1 litre
but not by much. unless someone actually wants to mash up 28 or so packs of crisps and report their findings, this will do. JUST A HYPOTHESIS. or something
people who can do a yard of ale must have stomachs that are twice as large as the average one.
that's still an awful lots to fit in your belly in one go tho...
