If you ever, and I mean EVER think that you fucked
something up royally, remember that the organizers
of the 1904 Olympic marathon:
Had zero stations for water on the 26 mile (42 km)
Accidentally gave North American competitor Tom
Hicks a cocktail made of egg whites, brandy, and
actual fucking rat poison
Had a guy come into the race late wearing a beret
and cutoff slacks, sneak into an apple orchard during
the race because no food had been given to him for
40 hours, eat rotten apples, projectile vomit onto the
track, fall asleep for hours, and finish in fourth place
OVERALL because most of the other runners
collapsed of exhaustion or injuries
Conducted the race on a dusty road, which caused
so much dust to be kicked into the air that an
American runner somehow inhaled enough to tear
his STOMACH LINING open
Accidentally released feral dogs onto the track
Fucked the other competitors up SO BADLY that
Tom Hicks-the guy who ate RAT POISON and was
HALLUCINATING the entire run-came in first place
#me at work on wednesdays specifically

    • SBNation has a fantastic video about this. Please like so others can see. Also, the rat poison was given several times by his trainer intentionally, not accidentally. It acted as a stimulant, and because the guy wasn’t able to get to water and was given poison instead he lost 9 pounds by the end

    • Fun fact, some people cant taste rat poison, but those who can find it so disgusting they often vomit. Sauce: 8th grade science teacher gave my whole class rat poison paper testing sheets to taste.

    • also Strychnine was used as rat poison but if used in small doses it stimulates the nervous system in order to keep him going he was probably hallucinating because of dehydration and he (Thomas Hicks) also lost 8 pounds during the marathon

    • They forgot the worst part, the favorite to win this competition dropped out early and hopped in a car with his trainers. When the car broke down, he just decided to run again despite already losing and since race officials weren't notified due to lack of technology. He was the declared winner (1/2)

    • Also, the American guy would’ve gotten second if they didn’t notice that the original first place actually took a cab to about 3 or 4 miles away from the track. And also the rat poison was on purpose, and a homeless did got 3rd I think and nobody noticed.

    • I ate rat poison when I was 3 years old when I went into the cabinets under the sink. Got very sick and had to have my stomach pumped. Moral of the story, Dont make poison that looks like candy and child proof areas that have dangerous chemicals.
