The Contest of the sucrose resistant
The Peep Off is over, and the
results are available. It went quite well, and nobody
died or even vomited. The Sparks home is still intact,
and the leftover peeps are being taken care of. Thank you
and Good Night.
Are you worried about the contestants
was the peep off? What about all that glycogen
in their liver cells? What about sucrose, isn't it a disaccharide?
previously available information
A local gang has organized the first annual peep off,
a contest of strong wills, strong stomachs and strong
insulin. These maniacs plan on seeing who can eat the
most peeps, and experts estimate that the winner will
have consumed somewhere around 30 peeps, or maybe more.
But do not worry! None of the participants are diabetic,
so no one is expected to die. In a normally functioning
liver, the glucose level is kept at .1 percent by transforming
the excess sugar into glycogen (or is it glycerol? I am
not sure anymore. If you know, mail me at the address
found at the main page) which is stored until the glucose
level falls, which may be quite some time. If the glucose
level is maintained with more sugar ingestion, then the
excess glycogen becomes fat. The results, and hopefully
a picture of the t shirts will be added to the page.
rules are no longer available on the web, but maybe
if you ask Shawn Sparks
he might still have a copy somewhere and send it to you.
