We all did some crazy things during our college years. Whether it was having one too many drinks, going out instead of studying, or any number of other stupid things college students are capable of doing, we have all done something bizarre and somewhat questionable.
A student from Michigan State University recently took the questionable life decisions from zero to 60 in less than five seconds. After being inspired by a post he saw on social media, senior student Derek Metcalf, decided he was going to try and eat 100 McChicken sandwiches from McDonald's in 24 hours or less.
I love a McChicken just as much as the next person. In fact, on the rare occasion that I find myself in one of their restaurants, I usually order three of these sandwiches instead of a one of their value meals, they are simply delicious. The little sandwich that packs 350 calories is a treat, and one that should be enjoyed on the odd occasion. But would I even consider attempting to eat 100 of these in 24 hours? Hell no, I wouldn't even attempt to get to 10. I like it too much to ruin it for myself.
I guess Derek Metcalf is just a braver person than I.
The premise of the challenge was apparently to eat 100 sandwiches in under 24 hours, without throwing up. It would have been a feat worthy of Hercules himself, and one that Metcalf was unable to accomplish. He was already wondering what he had gotten into at 10:00 AM on the day of the challenge.
Once his pace fell to one sandwich every 30 minutes, he knew it wasn't about to happen. "Too much mayo makes a man weak," Metcalf told the Lansing State Journal. "It was really hard to eat that amount of mayo."
As you can assume, Metcalf didn't make it to 100 sandwiches, but he did manage to wolf down 24 of those delicious little buggers. Some people would say that making it less than 25 per cent of the way to your goal is a massive failure, and in most cases it would be. But if you want to undertake this challenge (which we don't recommend), you would quickly realize that eating 24 of those in one day is quite the "accomplishment."
How many do you think you would be able to eat?
