This could possibly be the worst idea I’ve ever had but, I’m gonna run with it. After going through a few different ideas about how this should go down, I’ve finally settled on how the 768 Calorie Challenge should operate.
The objective is scientific in nature, peppered with stupidity as, after all, I seem to be a glutton for punishment. Drink 12 bottles or, in my case, cans of MGD 64 in a set period of time to see if there is actually any consequence. At 2.80% alcohol by volume, scientifically, downing 12 of these would actually get you some sort of buzz but, with the amount of beer I drink and the tolerance that I’ve built up, I’m not looking for a scientific number to peg on the experiment, I’m merely trying to see if I will actually feel any response. My guess is no.
I still haven’t fully decided on the time limit, but D-Train and I were thinking a can every 15 minutes to complete the 12 pack in 3 hours. But that’s almost too easy, so I’m bumping my limit up to a can every 10 minutes to finish in 2 hours.
Since it’ll be abnormally hot tomorrow, I’m going with a 12 pack of the poorly-rated MGD 64 Lemonade “Limited Edition”. I’ll kick the event off with a review of the beer to post soon followed by wake boarding and, consequently, lots and lots of urinating. What do I intend to accomplish beyond staying hydrated on a hot summer day? Nothing more than testing my own limits, really.
I think the irony in all this is that, in the grand scheme of my beer consumption, 768 calories is actually pretty weaksauce. Just imagine, two delicious bottles of Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine is damn near pushing 768 calories! Add one more craft beer on top of that and you’ve most likely enjoyed half the calories of your daily diet. Then again, you also tasted something and enjoyed what you were drinking.
Here’s to our experiment and stay tuned for photos.
