On May 4, Mr Gorske ate his 30,000th Big Mac at the same restaurant where he first ate McDonald’s signature burger in 1972. Mr Gorske first set the Guinness World Record for eating 28,788 Big Macs in 2016. He had said then that he typically bought his Big Mac burgers in bulk each week (over a dozen of them!) and microwaved them at home. He admitted that Big Mac burgers make up about 90 percent of his diet.
“I love the patties, I love the sauce, I can’t get enough of it,” he told The New York Post, insisting he’s healthy despite his rather… umm… unhealthy fast-food laden diet. “I’m healthy as a horse. I weigh 190 pounds, and my cholesterol is 165,” Mr Gorske said. “I’m better than normal.”
According to McDonald’s own nutrition calculator, one Big Mac burger contains 540 calories.

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wise people so full of doubts.” — Bertrand Russell
A survey conducted by Akamai showed that half of Internet users expect a website to load in 2 seconds or less, and is very likely to abandon a site if it is not loaded in 3 seconds.
79% of shoppers who have had difficulty buying online would never buy from that site again. And half of them would tell their friends about the unpleasantness of their experience.
A recent study showed that a 1 second delay causes a 7% drop in conversions, 11% in page views and 16% loss of customer satisfaction.
