      No. I was vaguely tempted when I first heard of it in a live chat a few days ago but then I read the explanations as to why it wouldn’t be a good thing. Don’t think I’m going to try it!

      No, I’m a little old for that now, I’m afraid.

      When I was a student we used to try something called the “saltine challenge” (which basically involves stuffing salted crackers in your mouth and trying to eat as many as you can without water). Its the same idea, but a little less dangerous.
