Oh yea? But I wonder how the list of side effects for that cure reads? I'm betting bad breath and alterered social status might be in there.

And I would think that would cause an upset stomach, not cure it. Then again I don't make a habit of swallowing my food live and whole. Maybe compared to pigeons and snakes, frogs and rats go down smooth?

I know, I'm a picky eater.

Don't tell Marc. He might implement that in the training plan. For building strength and such. "Hey, who can eat a frog and survive race xz!!! "....

I think Chris (from Texas) is trying out this "cure" right now in Bangkok. Let's wait and see how it works on him! :^)

So what's the caloric intake on a tree frog with a side of live rat?
