Food writer Kevin Shalin ended up in hospital after attempting to beat a restaurant record.

Mirror.co.uk said:

A food writer trying to beat a restaurant's customer record of scoffing hundreds of butter-rich cakes failed - and slipped into a coma.

Update: This article turned out to be a hoax: http://www.theglobea...rticle12769890/

I wouldn't have thought it was possible to eat 413 biscuits in one sitting.

In the USA the buttery unsweetened ones are called biscuits, the sweet ones are called cookies. Eating hundreds of either variety is not recommended. What was this guy thinking?

I love those biscuits but I only eat one or two when I go to Red Lobster. They are very filling. I couldn't imagine eating hundreds of them at one sitting. :unsure2:

I had my first bad experience of overeating the other day.  I hadn't eaten much for a few days beforehand, so one night I decided to splurge and make a large meal.  I'm not sure if anyone has ever made a porcupine meatloaf, slow cooked in gravy before(homemade gravy), but I recommend trying it.

I ate until stuffed and then a few hours later got tired and went to sleep.  I made the mistake of falling asleep on my stomach and woke up in the middle of the night with intense stomach pains, I'm not sure if sleeping in that position clogged my digestive track or I just ate too much on a shrunken belly, but I felt that blueberry girl from Willy Wonka.

Um, I'm pretty sure this is a fake. Keven posted the Rock City Times article (a satire piece) on his own FB page on Saturday- the day after the purported event. Looks like other agencies picked it up and ran with it.

Same thing happened to me once eating curry...

I overdone it, fell asleep and slipped into a Korma  ;)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.
