Do you ever wonder: what do those finance guys really do all day besides stare at Excel? Well at this very moment, an analyst (late 20's) at an unnamed hedge fund on Park Avenue is gorging himself with junk food for sport, in an attempt to break the record for an earlier gorger/intern over in Citi's London office.
He has 9 hours to eat 40 items, which include Snickers, Butterfinger, Trail's Best Double Salami, Cheez-its, and chedder fries. If our hedge funder succeeds, he would have engorged 9030 calories, 422 grams of fat, and 566 grams of sugar.
sidenote: It should be noted that many of the items on the list have been expired for 1-2 months.
5:46 pm Update: 31 items down, 9 items left to be eaten
8:00 pm Update: 35 items down, 5 to go- Threw in the towel
Ah. Good to know that the guys whose jobs it is to take care of people's money are spending their time so wisely.
