    Pacemakers are machine-like. They do not respond to stress. You do not want to pray for Molly, you just want to tell others about her condition.

    Do you think if she was having health problems because of the dangerously massive amount of food she consumes that she would admit it? I pray for the day when this disgusting practice is frowned upon, instead of these monstrous gluttons being praised.

    If that doc gave her a clean bill of health then gave her a thumbs up to continue consuming 20lbs of food per day, then his license to practice medicine should be revoked

    They think because they throw up immediately afterward that they’re not doing their body any harm. You can’t convince these people to stop if they’re making big money, but killing yourself for a t-shirt is sheer stupidity.

    You do not have any Nathans T-shirts because you never qualified. Use toilet paper, get double ply.

    TP connoisseur i want to thank you for recommending northern quilt toilet paper for my ass. It works great , Cost a little more , not available in individual rolls but well worth the investment . Gone are the days of toilet paper falling apart in little pieces into my ass. You get what you pay for. Scott and Charmin are the worst.

    This TP thread is idiotic. No wonder some people think competitive eaters are stupid.
