Reminder! Beginning tomorrow at 8 am, Anthony G, the "Hungry Barbarian," will attempt to "survive" in the wilderness of his backyard in the Hamptons. For 7 days, he cannot buy or be given food; he can only ingest what he catches, be it fish from the bay, the neighbor's cat, a squirrel or his own flesh. Interested in making money off of the absurdity? Betting boxes are available for purchase in 1 hour durations, with the hours of midnight-6am counting as one box (i.e. 19 boxes per day for 7 days). $10 gets you one randomly selected box, $100 gets you 10 randomly selected boxes plus one box of your choosing. Email him at hungbar at gmail dot com. Last time we checked, the pool was up to $400. The site is currently down, but with the big order we just placed, it should be up to at least 420. Insider information to aid your betting decision: we spoke with Anthony earlier and he informed us that he'll be gorging on steak, potatoes, and leaf cookies until the last possible second.
Update: The pool is up to $700. Says The HB:
My mom just bought the first box (it's random for everyone else but she wants me out early so I'll be done with this so we let her have it) while my dad bought 11 boxes. He wants me to make it to day 4 because then he'll be up here for the weekend BBQing trying to tempt me with piles of dogs, ribs and burgers. Not fun.
