What’s your claim to fame?

Whatever your claim to fame is, it can’t be as bloated as a recent accomplishment by Matt Stonie.  The man nicknamed Megatoad drank seven large McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes in 4 minutes and 41 seconds on St Patrick’s Day.  His head still hurts.

Stonie recently set a world record by eating 182 pieces of bacon in 5 minutes, and last week ate 14.5 pounds of birthday cake!

Confirmed

A man’s memory is worse than a woman’s especially as they age.  A Mayo Clinic doctor said recently, “We see worse memory and worse brain volumes in men than women from the 40’s onward.”

The study looked at 1,200 people between 30 and 95 years old.  Researchers found that memory started to decline for both sexes at age 40, but male memory was worse than women overall.  It’s thought that one of the major reasons females trump males in memory is the protective effect of hormones.  Estrogen has been shown to protect pre-menopausal women from hypertension, heart disease, bone loss and even urinary tract infections.

Catch The Walking Dead?

As a fan of The Walking Dead, I’m familiar with the gory antics of “walkers.”  But last night’s episode was the most gruesome I can recall, especially the revolving door of death scene in which Noah is literally torn apart just inches away from his friend Glenn.  After the show, I watched Talking Dead and guests Steven Yeun (Glenn), Tyler James Williams (Noah) and Josh McDermitt (Eugene) all said the revolving door scene was very hard to watch.

By the way, Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick is not just a talented host, comedian and blogger.  He’s also a great bowler due to the fact he’s the son of PBA Hall of Famer Billy Hardwick.
