Vagrant started this much loved tradition on our old site in February 26th 2010 by explaining that he made and ate TWO double burgers with double cheese and double bacon on each. (Also on the burgers were with lettuce, ketchup and some burger sauce.) He then made known his belief that he would require no more food that night. Jolly good sport that Vagrant.

Whataburger. It was huge. We expected small burgers, or medium sized, like in Ohio. Not this burger. Oh, no. Whataburger. We ordered two each, again,thinking it would be smaller. Whataburger. I managed to eat only 2/3rd of my FIRST one. I couldnt eat the second. It was just too much. Whataburger. Whataburger. Whataburger.

Bah, that's not that big...

Here in Brazil, we have some serious burgers. Even Applebee's here is bigger.

There is one place, where my gf lives (city of Sorocaba, 100 km from São Paulo), which makes a HUGE... HUGE... HUGE burger. Makes whataburger look like a Happy Meal. It is called Columbia Burgers (Your text to link here...)

My favorite, though, is Lanchonete da Cidade (City's Diner), here in São Paulo. Our best burger, no doubt! Your text to link here...
I'll come up with a new signature once we have decided on the new logo and other matters.

Damn, that's nice, Grootslang!

I already feel like having a heart-attack :P

EDIT: Columbia's burgers can still be bigger than that, if ordered properly... The last one I tried was that big, though, and I almost died.

Åhåhåå OMG I just made a very spontaneous weird loud sound over here! That looks RIDICULOUS! :D

Must have been hard almost dying Kalehon! I've never considered burgers (immediately) lethal until now!

Well, here it goes:

When I was 16yo or so, I travelled with my father and a friend of mine to Manaus, a city in the State of Amazonas, where lies the Amazon Forest. It's a beautiful place.

During the trip, while we sailed with a group over the Amazon River, we stopped by a floating restaurant there with "native cuisine".

As a boy, I was too hungry to care about what I was eating. And so, I ate a lot. I was particularly interested in somw kind of soup they had there that was very good.

That night, I found out it was Pirarucu's soup (here), a very famous and traditional fish from thar region of Brazil. The problem is the soup made from it is very strong, Very strong, indeed.

I spent twelve hours sick, six of which trying not to die while my body expelled it out (do not try to imagine...).

Believe me, I know how is it to get sick by food :P

I'd like to try that soup sometime. Good food is like a good romance, it doesn't leave you unaffected!

Here's my bad food story. It isn't nearly as bad or exotic as Kalehon's, but I've lead a sheltered life.

My first year of college I went to a very strict military school, but was on the football team and so got cut some slack. Whenever we didn't have an inspection on Saturday mornings I would get out of our squadron area and head down to the field house, where the hockey rink and athletics locker rooms were. I would always stop at the concession stand and have a brunch of nachos, usually two large orders, piled high with nearly as many jalapenos as corn chips. Then I would go down to the locker room and hang out by my locker listening to my tape player, which as a freshman I wasn't supposed to have, but the upper class football players were all highly contemptuous of the military disipline of the place, so no one ever said anything. It was good to get away from the regular, jackass upper classmen and just chill for a while in the locker room -- which being a major college football locker room was probably the most luxurious facility on campus.

Sunday mornings, however, were always characterized by extreme gastro-intestinal distress that precluded me from going to church services -- as bad as it was, I guess it did serve some purpose. Anyway, it took me literally a month and a half to make the connection between the Saturday jalapenos and the Sunday unpleasantry. In defense of my intelligence, up to that point I had always been able to eat whatever I wanted without any repercussions. So I've always considered that problem with the jalapenos as the first hint of my own mortality.

What a nice story... A brief insight into the early life of an American military schooled football player, with an additional shared insight about life at the end. Nice!

I would be remiss if I didn't point out that I was an American military school football practicer. I didn't actually play since, among other reasons, I was so slow they measured my 40 time with a calendar.
