A Tunisian man died after eating 28 raw eggs in one go for a bet.

Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, allegedly wagered a friend he could eat 30 raw eggs in a row, for which he would receive an undisclosed sum.

Mr Fatnassi, from Kairouan in north-east Tunisia, managed 28 eggs before he collapsed with severe stomach pains.

Eggsitential and missed eggsigent facts.

Salmonella takes 24-48 hours to present itself.

I ate raw eggs in high school because I wanted to be like Rocky and Schwarzenneger.

Nothing ever happened.

The eggs were hard-boiled in “Cool Hand Luke”. “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate”.

Man, he could have at least gone for two more before he croaked.

He would have at least won the bet.

Did he remove the shells or did he just swallow them whole?

Helpful information from the article:
Whilst eggs cooked properly are a great source of protein and part of a healthy diet, raw eggs could cause food poisoning and may contain salmonella bacteria.

If you are making food demanding raw eggs, such as mayonnaise or ice cream, use pasteurised eggs to eliminate risks.

I'm left wondering what the heck it was that killed him. I can't imagine food poisoning or salmonella kicking in so quickly.

What a weird bet. I wonder who egged him on? I wonder how much money was going to be shelled out? I bet the guy that challenged him scrambled away quickly to avoid the police.

There is an investigation underway, don't know:

- if alcohol involved
- size of eggs
- size of young man
- exploding golf balls?
- protestor at US embassy
- thing to do when bored in Tunisia

But this man ate shells and all

The CDC reports that of the 1.2 million cases (samonella)each year, only about 400 are fatal.

.03 percent of the 69 billion eggs produced every year contain salmonella.

The odds were in your favor! Glad you survived!

Allergy to uncooked egg protein? Whatever, at least now we know what the LD50 is for eggs.

so you aren't like them, so eggs are the answer against liberalism!

So the guy who died couldn't do it. The best is - he died a RINO.

“I’m left wondering what the heck it was that killed him. I can’t imagine food poisoning or salmonella kicking in so quickly.”

The answer is cholesterol poisoning. It takes time for the body to process cholesterol into the chemicals that it needs, steroids and hormones. Eggs contain a high amount of cholesterol. I remember calculating back in microbiology, when we learned about this, that if a person ate somewhere around 25-30 eggs within the span of an hour, they would overwhelm the ability of the body to process the cholesterol, and would die from the toxicity.

Heh, I knew I'd be too late to make that reference.

Trivia: Apparently Paul Newman DID eat the eggs.

Understandable when you see his belly in the movie. I wouldn't want to be around him the next couple of days, though.
