Joseph “Joey” Christian Chestnut (born November 25, 1983) is an American competitive eater. He is currently ranked first in the world by Major League Eating. He is a Vallejo, California, native and resides in San Jose, California. Chestnut’s height is 6-feet-one-inch (1.9 m); his weight is 230 pounds (104 kg).
On July 4, 2007, Chestnut won the 92nd Annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, beating six-time defending champion Takeru “Tsunami” Kobayashi by consuming 66 hot dogs and buns (HDB) in 12 minutes, which set a new world record. The following year, he successfully defended his title by winning a 5 hot dog eat-off after tying Kobayashi in consuming 59 HDB in 10 minutes. On July 4, 2009, Chestnut beat Kobayashi again, by consuming a new world record of 68 HDB and winning his third consecutive title. On July 4, 2010, Chestnut took home his 4th consecutive Mustard Belt eating 54 HDB. The 2010 contest was a runaway victory, as Kobayashi did not compete due to a contract dispute with Major League Eating. On July 4, 2011, he won his fifth-consecutive championship with 62 HDB. 2012 marked his sixth consecutive win, when Chestnut tied his own world record from 2009 by devouring 68 HDB. In 2013, Chestnut captured his seventh straight title, eating a total of 69 HDB, breaking his previous world record. In 2014, Chestnut captured his eighth straight title eating a total of 61 HDB.
Chestnut proposed to his longtime girlfriend Neslie Ricasa just before defending his title in the 2014 Nathan’s competition. The couple split up in early 2015, prior to their scheduled wedding date.
Chestnut lost the 2015 Hot Dog eating contest to Matt Stonie. On July 4, 2016, Chestnut regained the championship belt from Stonie by eating 70 hot dogs; 3.5 hot dogs short of his record-setting qualifying round. A year later on July 4, 2017, he raised the bar again by raising his record to 72 hot dogs.
Chestnut, a San Jose State University student, entered the competitive eating scene in 2005 with a break-out performance in the deep-fried asparagus eating championship, in which he beat high-ranked eater Rich LeFevre by eating 6.3 pounds of asparagus in 11.5 minutes. That same year, during Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest, he downed 32 dogs, placing third behind Takeru Kobayashi and Sonya Thomas.

Every one knows about the hot dogs, with Chestnut a perennial champ of the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4 in Coney Island.
But tacos are no problem, either, as he showed again this Saturday on day 2 of the Taco Truck Throwdown at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, California.
Chestnut gave those on hand a show when he stuffed down 92 carne asada tacos in 8 minutes to win the World Taco Eating Championship at Throwdown 7.
“The heat was really hard so I was sweating a little bit more than I should,” said Chestnut, who pocketed $4,000 for the win and said he’ll return next summer to defend his title. “I had little deep coughs where it came out a little bit. I wasn’t burping or anything; the food wasn’t settling fast enough, but it worked out.”
And if you think that means Chestnut didn’t get to enjoy what was put in front of him?
“The food was delicious,” he said.

A ban on pedestrians looking at mobile phones or texting while crossing the street will take effect in Hawaii’s largest city in late October, as Honolulu becomes the first major US city to pass legislation aimed at reducing injuries and deaths from “distracted walking”.
The ban comes as cities around the world grapple with how to protect phone-obsessed “smartphone zombies” from injuring themselves by stepping into traffic or running into stationary objects.
Starting 25 October, Honolulu pedestrians can be fined between $15 and $99, depending on the number of times police catch them looking at a phone or tablet device as they cross the street, Mayor Kirk Caldwell told reporters gathered near one of the city’s busiest downtown intersections on Thursday.
“We hold the unfortunate distinction of being a major city with more pedestrians being hit in crosswalks, particularly our seniors, than almost any other city in the country,” Caldwell said. Honolulu data on distracted-walking incidents was not immediately available.
Caldwell signed the legislation on Thursday after it was passed in a 7-2 vote by the city council this month, city records show.
People making calls for emergency services are exempt from the ban.
More than 11,000 injuries resulted from phone-related distraction while walking in the United States between 2000 and 2011, according to a University of Maryland study published in 2015.
The findings pushed the non-profit National Safety Council to add “distracted walking” to its annual compilation of the biggest risks for unintentional injuries and deaths in the United States, highlighting the severity of the issue.
“Cell phones are not just pervading our roadways but pervading our sidewalks too,” Maureen Vogel, a spokeswoman for the council, said in a phone interview on Friday.
Efforts to save pedestrians from their phones extend beyond America’s shores. London has experimented with padding lamp posts to soften the blow for distracted walkers, according to the Independent newspaper.
In Germany, the city of Augsburg last year embedded traffic signals into the ground near tram tracks to help downward-fixated pedestrians avoid injury, local media reported.
Opponents of the Honolulu law argued it infringes on personal freedom and amounts to government overreach.
“Scrap this intrusive bill, provide more education to citizens about responsible electronics usage, and allow law enforcement to focus on larger issues,” resident Ben Robinson told the city council in written testimony.
A MarkoZen possible invention: eventually constant smartphone addicts are going to suffer elbow and wrist pain due to perpetual bending. I propose a arm brace mated with a selfie stick.
This way addicts can avoid suffering from elbow and wrist arthritis in their later years. They can then concentrate on dealing with their reduced vision and neck issues.

His majesty Donald Trump could pull this off. It would be fantastic, a beautiful thing.
In UFO circles the hot topic that always resurfaces is Disclosure! Disclosure is the idea that governments are suppressing information that they possess about UFO’s and space aliens. But do we really want to know what they know? They definitely know a lot more than they let out. But would Disclosure satisfy the masses? Or would Disclosure scare the holy crap out of an already paranoid public.
Without a doubt something very strange happens in the world’s skies from time to time. There are tens of thousands of unexplained sightings of highly unusual aerial phenomena from all over the planet. Most sightings can be explained away as very anomalous natural phenomena, such a strange cloud formations, bright stars, atmospheric aberrations, misidentified military aircraft and a myriad of other real things, but terrestrial in origin.
However, there are some compelling cases that boggle the mind. The Belgium UFO wave in 1989 and 1990, the Loring air force base sightings, the Rendlesham forest incident in 1984 where U.S. military personnel observed UFO’s close-up, the Iranian fighter jet encounter in the seventies, other U.S. military base encounters observed by hundreds of service people. Then there was the Phoenix lights in 1997, observed by hundreds of citizens and then Arizona governor Fife Symington. Symington only came forward years later when he was out of office. Symington stated what he saw was definitely not flares released by fighter jets, as the official explanation said. The Washington D.C. UFO flap in 1952 when unknown objects were not only sighted but picked up on radar, President Truman issued a shoot-down order to the air force. The Washington D.C. incident was eventually explained away by the air force as extremely unusual atmospheric conditions. There are many more cases and examples of very intriguing sightings and reports.

The government absolutely knows more than it releases. But I am quite sure they don’t have alien spacecraft in secret hangers or bodies of dead Gray aliens. For the hundredth time, UFO’s did not crash at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. That story came to fruition by some creative con artist authors, most notably Stanton Friedman. What was discovered at Roswell was fully disclosed by the air force in the 1990’s, it was, without a doubt, the wreckage of a massive super-secret balloon train called Project Mogul. The evidence for Mogul at Roswell is irrefutable. These craft from millions of light years away or from alternate dimensions would not crash when they get hit by lightning on Earth!! Many people make very big money perpetuating the Roswell myth. The hell with Roswell, there are many other incidents that are a thousand times more compelling.
What does the government know? The military in advanced countries have to have evidence gathered from radar, air force pilot sightings (unlike civilian pilots who for the most part do not report sightings because it could ruin their careers, military pilots have to report what they see), satellite sensors and all kinds of other intelligence gathering technology. This information is kept confidential. But why? Because the military and government realize whatever these things are, they are light years more advanced than anything we can imagine. Therefore the military is powerless in trying to confront the phenomena or understand it. Generals and top C.I.A. brass have come to the realization that there is something tangible out there, but they can’t do anything about it.
If the general public was told that the powerful U.S. military was hopelessly inferior to this remarkable phenomena it could create a feeling of angst and panic among the population. So the government always tries to explain it away with illogical stories about bright Venus or a flock of geese reflecting moonlight. They don’t want to panic the masses.
What if the masses starting construing the Aliens as malevolent, or even belligerent. People would start jumping off bridges. Bad Space Aliens that could destroy humankind in seconds! Oh my!
Many abduction cases describe the Aliens as cold creatures that in effect torture captured humans. Not nice guys. I have always perceived the Alien abduction stories as nothing more than sleep paralysis or other hallucinations. But more cases are coming to light where groups of people are being abducted at the same time, and they remember the exact same things. They even remember strangers in the abduction scenario that they come across back in regular life. This abduction situation is very weird.
Nearly all abduction reports are that the Alien creatures performing the physical inspections do it in a removed and antipathetic manner. These physicals are often very painful and psychologically terrifying according to the abductees.
It is not just humans being abducted. Animals of all sorts are reported to be picked up and inspected. The cattle mutilations , as far as I’m concerned, are full of hyperbole and conjecture. I think this phenomena can be explained as scavengers and other natural occurrences. Not to say that the odd cow isn’t abducted and then returned to its green pasture, this may be possible.
We will never see complete disclosure of what the C.I.A. has on file regarding UFOs. As long as the American public continues to be paranoid and gullible the risks are just too great. 2012 had many Americans spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on underground bunkers and shelters stockpiled with food. Many fundamental Christians believe the Rapture is around the corner. The End Days are closing in. The government doesn’t want to add fuel to the hysteria fire already out there by proclaiming that the Space Aliens could swat us like a fly anytime they want to.
‘The Donald’ attended the national Boy Scouts jamboree last week. Forgetting to be non-partisan in front of the mostly under 18 crowd, Trump immediately started ranting political diatribes. He vented vulgar obscenities towards political opponents and even some of his own white house staff members. The disgusting spectacle ended with Trump leading a hostile chant “lock her up, lock her up”. The chant was in reference to Hillary Clinton being prosecuted for her deletion of secretary of state emails. The young boy scouts got so frenzied with the primal chant that riot police had to be brought in.
Andrej Ciesielski scaled the legendary monument earlier this month in a daring daylight climb that amazingly only took him about 8 minutes to accomplish.
Despite being spotted by police during his ascent, Ciesielski continued to the top of the pyramid to savor the once-in-a-lifetime view and document his incredible feat.
Upon returning to ground level, the young man was arrested and could have faced up to three years in jail for the stunt.
He was eventually released after agreeing to let authorities delete the footage and photos from his climb.
Fortunately, Ciesielski had a way to recover the digital material and is now sharing the evidence of his awesome adventure with the world.
One slip and it’s going to be a head-over-heels crash that could cause permanent damage.
After a hard day of pyramid climbing, go to the KFC and indulge in Goat Tongue and Jackass Testicle Stew. Available only at Egyptian KFC outlets.
