Snotting Up Lemonade

James The PegPeggedIn spite of patristic opinion, there appears to be no Scriptural evidence for the Perichoretic relationship of the Father and the Holy Spirit… [sorry, slipped into Essay mode there for a moment]

This evening we were having something of a re-run of a previous Amicus activity – World Record evening. Tonight it mostly involved crackers, lemonade and pegs. I’ll try to explain – but fear I won’t be able to do it justice. There were literally tears of laughter & lemonade! [view all pics]

The first exercise was to eat three crackers as quickly as possible. The World Record is apparently about 33 seconds – and I think our closest attempt was 1:33. We tried a few different techniques but the only thing we achieved was making a mess on the floor. The second exercise was to drink a pint of lemonade as quickly as possible without being sick, without it coming out of your nose, etc. Simon had a good attempt but it was soon out-drunk (is that a word?) by James who managed to down his pint in about 5 seconds which has to be seen to be believed. Flic, Tim and Nicci took their time, and broke the monotony with lots of laughter, tears and other bodily substances.

The lemonade challenge soon changed into a burping challenge – naturally – but it quickly took a turn for the worse. Watch the video below for the full story:

Watch James closely after 45 seconds

The next exercise involved pegs and James’ face, Simon’s tongue and chin, and almost Nicci’s ears! We enjoyed another see-it-to-believe-it moment when James had 50 pegs on his facethe aftermath was something to see too. The final exercise involve “easy” Sudoku – which should’ve taken just over a minute. Some did better than others – but I thought Tim’s 10 minutes was very respectable.

To finish we had a rather sedate time – trying to knock the protective guard off one of the lights (for safety reasons – honest) and then we grabbed the ping-pong balls and a cup and played our own game of ‘Billy’s Balls‘. It was fun but it will be a long time before we get anywhere near the level of the video.
