A Bird’s Eye View of Bird’s Eye Peas

For the next round in our epic dinner battle we will have each contestant compete to see who can finish his dinner first. You will be racing against the clock, and I have to warn you: points WILL be deducted for spillage.

What’s the catch, you say?

You will have to complete your task while suspended by a harness from the ceiling! There you will dangle just within reach of your meal for as long as it takes to consume all of it — wine included.

That’s not so hard! I hear you say.

Well, consider this: have you ever tried swallowing against the force of gravity? No? I can see by the look on your faces that you appreciate our brave contestants’ dilemma.

In order for us to follow along, each contestant will be wearing a head-mounted camera so that we can view the spectacle from their perspective.

Are we ready? Yes?

On your marks . . . get set . . . go!
