Tricks of the Trade?

Random advice from people compiled into a blog site. It's hit and miss, but entertaining.

"The vast majority of the Tricks I've been receiving have been submitted anonymously, so if you want to go that route, you're more than welcome to. On the other hand, if you want tro include your name and URL, I'll give you attribution when I post your trick to the website. (Email addresses will only be used if I need to ask you about something for clarification -- that's it). Since I don't know what format this hypothetical book will take yet I can't say whether names will be included with those entries that are used there, my guess is "probably not" given that the majority would just be signed "Anonymous." Just so you know."

Nathan's hot dog eating contest might have an American winner. There are still quite a few qualifying contests to go.

"Chestnut, a 22-year-old civil engineering student at San Jose State, ate 50 hot dogs and buns in 12 minutes Thursday at the Las Vegas qualifier for a spot at the table at the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.
"I was hoping to do 40," said Chestnut, the champion in pork ribs (5.5 pounds in 12 minutes), waffles (18.5 in 10 minutes) and jalapeno poppers (118 in 10 minutes). "I did 48 at home, but it's always harder to do it in front of a crowd." "

Want to play games for money? Well Moola.com is the place to go then. Moola is similar to a super-jackpot game show.

"Moola gives each new user $0.01 to start. You play against another player at your level, and the winner takes all of the money from the other person. So each time you win, you double your money. Win 30 times in a row and win $10.7 million. A user can “cash out” at any time and have a check delivered to them with their current balance. If you lose, you start over at $0.01."
