Fat Tuesday part II: Call to Arms

Here at Vote Dark Horse|Vote Dorshorst, we will be celebrating Fat Tuesday, and live blogging it for you readers. Drinking to excess was considered, but that would likely generate a very poorly written entry. So I will be eating to excess.

The medium: one 7.5 lb (3.32 kg) can of Bush's Baked Beans.
The goal: half eaten within 45 minutes, the second half eaten within 4 hours.

For those interested.
Serving Size: 1/2 cup
Total Servings: 26
per serving:
-Calories: 140
-Total Fat: 1 g
-Sodium: 550 mg (23%DV)
-Fiber: 5 g (20%DV)

Some Trivia:
The human stomach has a volume of 50 mL and generally expands after eating a meal to 1 L (4.22) cups. I will be eating a total of 13 cups of beans.
Many edible beans, including broad beans and soybeans, contain oligosaccharides, a type of sugar molecule also found in cabbage. An anti-oligosaccharide enzyme is necessary to properly digest these sugar molecules. As a normal human digestive tract does not contain any anti-oligosaccharide enzymes, consumed oligosaccharides are typically digested by bacteria in the large intestine. This digestion process produces flatulence-causing gasses as a byproduct.

The spectacle begins at 1:00 Central Standard Time.
