Big thanks to one of our German readers Christoph for sending this one in! It's the story of a German Science TV Show called Galileo, and their attempt at making a Mega-Burger. Not your run-of-the-mill MegaBurger though, no no, the Germans do things BIG, REAL BIG. So big in fact that they engineered a structure to hold the Burger Patty just inches from the heat source for cooking, and then used this structure to flip the burger perfectly. An amazing engineering feat! They go through the process of research (using!), planning, preparation, cooking, and finally eating. My German isn't the best, so I really don't know much about what they're saying, only that the bun is 170cm wide and weighs 140kg's, the patty is also 170cm wide and weighs 243kg's, with fixin's, the total burger weight cooked was 329kg's!
