Man hits new milestone by eating 30000th Big Mac hamburgers

Man Eats 30000th Big Mac, Setting New World Record

A pamphlet chronicling Gorske's hamburger habit offers a hint of why he's so devoted, according to Detroit television station WXYZ.

Don Gorske of Wisconsin loves to eat McDonald's Big Mac so much he has eaten thousands of it over the past 46 years.

"Every 10,000 takes me 14 years, so you look ahead and it's like wow". He averages eating two Big Macs a day and has only missed having one on eight days since that first bite. He also appeared in the movie Supersize Me.

Global smartphone market declines in Q1 2018, Samsung leads: IDC
Samsung shifted 78 million handsets and has 22 per cent of the market, while Apple sold 52.2 million and has 15 per cent. The Korean tech giant Samsung has leapfrogged Apple to become the number one smartphone brand in the first quarter .

In fact, after the little ceremony the local Mickey D's held for him, he got a second one to-go: number 30,001. "I microwave them, I like them like that", Gorske said.

"While he has managed through the years to preserve and categorize most everything related to his Big Mac obsession, he did lose about 7,000 or so Styrofoam cartons that were damaged in a tornado that blew the soffits off his house on June 2, 1990", the paper reported.

Naturally, he's featured in Morgan Spurlock's 2004 film Super Size Me, in which he estimated that "90 percent of [his] solid diet is probably Big Macs".

Nadal beats Greece's Tsitsipas in Barcelona Open final
Nadal has now won 46 consecutive sets on clay, and speaking after the victory, it seems each title is sweeter than the last. After the win, Nadal dived into a pool at the venue along with some of the tournament's ball boys and ball girls.

The last day he didn't have a Big Mac was Thanksgiving Day in 2011, when McDonald's was closed and he thought he had a burger in the freezer.

Big Macs have always been Gorske's thing - he's big enough to have a Wikipedia page detailing his history with the fast-food staple.

Quiet weather for today, but severe weather ramps up next week
Heavy rainfall may also lead to localized flash flooding into eastern Oklahoma, northeastern Texas and western Arkansas. The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for much of central Kansas, extending into southern Nebraska.
