Japan, we are awed

Takeru Kobayashi won the Coney Island hot dog eating contest for the fourth time, gulping down, 53 1/2 hot dogs in 12 minutes.

He weights 132 lbs.

That’s one hot dog every 13.5 seconds for 12 minutes.

Let’s assume the 2 oz. Nathan’s hot dogs are used, and that the rolls (yes, they eat rolls too) are also 2 oz. So, 4 oz. x 53 1/2 = 13.5 pounds of food.

He ate 10% of his body weight in twelve minutes.
