Pi Day Pie Challenge!

Today is National Pi Day! To celebrate, I issued myself a noble challenge: eat a whole pie in under 3 minutes and 14 seconds.

In honor of one of my favorite childhood movies, Stand By Me, I decided to go with a blueberry pie. Anyone remember Lardass and the "complete and total barf-o-rama"?

Naturally, I recorded the whole thing on video. 

Right before the pie. Feeling good!

First bite.

Bite two. 
"This is going to be harder than I thought."

Almost three minutes in.
"I don't think I'm going to make it."

Three minutes and five seconds.
Still about a third of a pie left in the plate.
"Don't... give... up..."

Three minutes and fourteen seconds.
3.14 = π 
But... not for me.

Pi fail!

I refuse to let defeat lead to despair!

I'll be honest, I was expecting vom. But way to give 314%!

I attended a pi day celebration. I ate too much pie. I'm glad I didn't try to do it in 3 minutes and 14 seconds. I do admire your bravery.
