Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

In The Saltine Challenge, dog is superior to woman.

Some friends and I recently tested that time-honored eating tradition known as the Saltine Challenge in which participants attempt to swallow six Saltine crackers in 60 seconds. But in our competition, we wanted to see if a dog was faster than a human.

Our representative from the human race was my friend Sam, who couldn't even choke down two crackers in ten seconds:

Then, champion eating machine Oliver Parker stepped up to the plate (literally). My memory card ran out before he finished, but you can clearly see that a dog's instinct to gorge food makes the Saltine Challenge a walk in the park. He got them down in less than 40 seconds:

I've never met anyone who could consume six Saltines in 60 seconds ... anyone who wasn't a dog. Maybe the animal world has something to teach us.
This is a great way to kick off the holidays. Now I want a match between Oliver and the turkey. I still say the turkey will win.
I did it . . I swear. I ate a hot pepper then waited about two minutes without swallowing any saliva.

I had a mouthful of spit when I started and 55 seconds later I had a huge lump in my esophagus.

I am awesome.
So when taking AR's account and the post's title into consideration, does the social hierarcy of cracker eating go man---dog----woman? If this test was some kind of paradigm for life, I think parrots would rule all....
