And now, the bizzare

Once upon a time, I could eat a lot and not gain weight. Now, this just seems excessive.

We had a couple of similar stories in the UK a few years back.

By the by, I also recall a TV documentary about all you can shovel down places here. The owner of one place reckoned that he generally made money if customers ate less than eight plates, which meant most customers were profitable.

Back in 1985, before the fall of the Iron Curtain, I was in Hungary and happened to go to an AYCE Sunday Brunch at a nice hotel outside of Budapest. The cost was a very reasonable $3 or so. When I asked for the bill, it was $6.00. The waiters had no interest in explaining it to me but eventually the manager came over and told me that I ate as much as for 2 people. I briefly debated him but realized that I wasn’t going to win and it was still a very fair price. I wasn’t banned but I haven’t been back.
