Scorpion Eating Contest

How does someone train to be the world record holder for most live scorpions eaten in one minute? Sure it's only 60 seconds. We do a whole lot more unpleasant things that take more than sixty seconds.

Like when the dental hygienist flosses your teeth, for example. So, do you start small and work up? Eat as many fortune cookies as you can in a minute. Then work your way up to grubs. Then beetles. Then spiders, then finally scorpions. What's the technique for avoiding a sting? Bite off the tail first? Or hold em by the tail and throw them down head first, like shrimp? How do all those scorpions and spiders and beetles and grubs and fortune cookies feel about being sacrificed for sport? For you to prove how tough you are? Or are they having a contest of their own? "See who can avoid getting caught by the stupid human."
