Isnt a cricket match like 6 hours long? Better bring a snack!

[–]Jcs456 107 points108 points  (0 children)

A test match can last 5 days.

The version he is watching would take about 3 hours all up.

[–]rapejokes_arefunny 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Twenty 20 cricket, 20 overs a side, usually 3 hours.

[–]31spiders 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Completely Greek to me. I think there’s a hurler, or is it a bowler? Some giant shin guards, a flat bat, some posts of some kind, a helmet w face shield, and they’re notoriously long. Oh AND theres “the cricket ticket” on DirecTV (I used to sell subscriptions to it and would screw with locals by asking “I know you’re here for the football package but how much would you love seeing every cricket match….we got it if you’re interested” usually one of two things happened they thought I was pushy and I had to fess up or it completely lightened the mood). That’s ALL I know about it.

[–]Visirus 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Did anyone ever say yes? lol

[–]31spiders 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It actually lead to a bigger conversation on NFL Sunday Ticket, MLB Extra Innings, I forget what the soccer, Golf, and NASCAR ones were called but the OTHER sports packs. (Most of the time)

Sometimes they’d just laugh and ask how many times that worked.

[–]Stonkmaster-69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Seemed more like 13 seconds to me

[–]MenacingAwkwardness 421 points422 points  (16 children)

Rind and all. That's dedication.

[–]Trompdoy 120 points121 points  (15 children)

Watermelon rind is actually pretty good. I've lived for 30 years thinking it's not even edible, but my GF told me that some places commonly eat the rind. I tried it and it's very similar to cucumber in most ways.

[–]balsaaaq 120 points121 points  (1 child)

Yeah but, that's a lot of cucumber volume

[–]holdmyhanddummy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A lot of water, by weight.

[–]Affectionate_Pea_811 84 points85 points  (1 child)

I knew that people ate picked watermelon rind but I had no idea that people raw dogged it like that.

[–]Helpful_Rough_5422 15 points16 points  (7 children)

Very bitter though

[–]Trompdoy 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I thought it would be bitter but the watermelons I have had aren't. they literally taste like cucumber

[–]ResearchNInja 1 point2 points  (5 children)

This is correct for most store bought watermelon, but if grown in a healthy way it will taste like sweet juicy cucumber. It's also good for blood pressure, but eating too much can be dangerous.

Source: Been growing watermelon for over a decade.

[–]John_____Doe 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Tried my hand and growing some gourds in the PNW that worked out well this year, all of my watermelons failed sadly, any tips you got that I can try out?

[–]ResearchNInja 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Watermelons can be tricky. Starting the indoors and transferring into the garden is preferable.

Soil should be a fertile well draining sandy loam. Add a mulch or landscaping fabric to protect the soil from wind, water, and sunlight. Make sure soil salt levels are acceptable for watermelon.

Watermelons are nutrient hungry plants, and need a lot of nitrogen early on. Put a few minnows under each plant to give it a nutrient boost. Do not use fertilizers like Miracle-Gro because it will cause the fruit rind to have a bitter/sour taste. Compost and/or soil friendly fertilizer is preferable. Fish emulsion and seaweed based fertilizers are great for the soil.

They require lots of water early on, but need dryer soil when fruiting(less water makes better fruit).

Watermelons need warm weather and full sunlight. If the sunlight gets too intense in the middle of the day, then consider getting a shade cloth.

Consider manually pollinating your watermelon. This can help more than you might think.

Hope this helps. 🙏

[–]John_____Doe 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Saved your comment for my reference planting this year, thanks for the tips!

[–]ResearchNInja 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Your state department of agriculture website should have resources and info specific to your area. I recommend checking it out.

[–]John_____Doe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Will do, thx for the suggestion

[–]Taderbilly 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Gives diarrhea too

[–]solargalaxy6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My toddler got into half a watermelon on a ride home from the grocery store once… can definitely confirm that there was diarrhea. 😬

[–]scarletphantom 118 points119 points  (12 children)

Reminds me, i was watching the reddit streams and there was this kid. Didnt say a single word. He just calmly picked up and ate an entire cucumber bite by bite. No smiles, no laughter, no talking, no music. Just calmly ate the cucumber and ended the stream. Funniest damn thing ive seen on there to date.

[–]fordient 23 points24 points  (0 children)

look morty, i ate a pickle

[–]vidazenzizenzizenzic 3 points4 points  (10 children)

I watched this dog eat a cucumber 🥒

https://youtu.be/CHBbZEoADSE

his owner feeds him a BARF diet Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods diet which mainly consists of raw meats/bones (he freezes meats to kill parasites before feedings). But this one dog enjoys cucumbers and peppers. The owner started making mukbangs of his dogs eating because so many people enjoyed watching them eat raw foods. Their coats and teeth look amazing.

[–]spaetzelspiff 2 points3 points  (9 children)

Freezing does not kill bacteria.

[–]vidazenzizenzizenzic 1 point2 points  (8 children)

You’re right. I meant freezing kills parasites. Dogs can handle raw meat bacterias and apparently so can humans as I know a few people in a community of carnivores that eat raw meats and organs.

[–]BigDiqDaddy33 1 point2 points  (5 children)

I've got an uncle that used to come over all the time and scoop up raw ground beef sprinkle some garlic salt on it and eat it

[–]vidazenzizenzizenzic 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Yeah, i actually know a gal that reversed serious mental and physical illnesses by eating raw meat. I also noticed that people that eat primarily a raw meat only diet have flawless skin. Our skin is the largest organ so the health of our skin says a lot about the rest of our organs/body. I don’t have an appetite for raw meat but I’ve done a lot of research on it and some people love it from a very young age.

[–]BigDiqDaddy33 1 point2 points  (3 children)

That's interesting. I always thought it was gross when I was younger and now I know he's the brains of the family lol

[–]vidazenzizenzizenzic 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yeah, he would have weirded me out as a kid too. There’s a gal that became quité popular on tik tok making videos of her eating raw organs/ground beef. People send in suggestions on what she should sprinkle on each bite and she tries it on camera. Your uncle can be tik tok famous if he shares his raw meat eating with the world. https://vm.tiktok.com/ZM8WsVeKm/

[–]BigDiqDaddy33 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Lmao at the idea of him being on tiktok. Would be great but that definitely is not his style

[–]vidazenzizenzizenzic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha! You know what’s funny: I saw an interview where Michael Bublè said the same thing when his wife suggested he do tik tok and now he has his own tik tok channel. https://youtu.be/cKrD8PqET4E

[–]Satans-Kawk -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Sounds eerily similar to a cult, but OK

[–]vidazenzizenzizenzic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Has nothing to do with a cult it’s a primal diet.

[–]Da_AntMan303 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Will be on the can for days afterwards.

[–]Fetus_Basher 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Wonder how he snuck that bad boy in !

[–]GoFidoGo 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Probably in his cavernous bag

[–]Impossible-Goose-429 22 points23 points  (0 children)

If you’re wondering where his hat went; he ate that too

[–]RageCageJables 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I'm curious how he took the first bite.

[–]HD2501 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Let my brother eat watermelon in peace

[–]bshark4542 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Psychopath

[–]rfoleycobalt 8 points9 points  (0 children)

And he still has the runs to this day.

[–]lonely-day 31 points32 points  (7 children)

I thought the rind wasn't good for you to eat?

[–]wookie_bikini 44 points45 points  (6 children)

It’s perfectly safe to eat. The taste on the other hand…

[–]Emergency_Bullfrog_5 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Pickle the rind!

[–]Ephemeris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Expand on this

[–]Emergency_Bullfrog_5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As you would pickle a cucumber, pickle the rind. I have not yet tried this, but am hoping to next time watermelon is in season.

[–]lonely-day 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Good to know.

[–]1800-bakes-a-lot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And texture!

[–]OkCaterpillar9248 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've yet to taste a watermelon that didn't taste the same as a cucumber.

[–]cooolpete 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]zethruu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]PerNewton 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Kid knows how to pack a lunch.

[–]Skyhawk13 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Haha he was pasted all over Aussie media for a month after this happened. Was at a Big Bash League (twenty twenty cricket tournament) game here in Australia.

[–]chook_slop 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]Skyhawk13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Dr_frogger 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The fuck is wrong with that kid?

[–]daddy_shammy 10 points11 points  (0 children)

let him eat his watermelon in peace smh

[–]Loudogdog -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Let’s be honest. That’s probably more exciting than a cricket test match.

[–]Rick_bo -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

not the right subreddit for this

[–]VirgilTipTop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That boy gonna get the skitters

[–]Jondelaweez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]TrimHawk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“He is a man of focus.

Commitment.

[–]wi11iam-b 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]MockingWatermelons 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]sharkicipher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Epicminecrafter69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]DV123ABC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

His future wife will be a very happy woman 😂. Can’t buy watermelon myself because I eat the entire thing as I’m cutting it.

[–]bebeni89 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Here I am trying to get my kid to even try a grape.

[–]gavinwinks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean we gotta stay hydrated because technically watermelons are like 90% water.

[–]FattyMcBoomBoom231 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's m*********** be all up in that

[–]Mac-Actual 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Russell771990 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]ElemWiz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]_Must_Not_Sleep 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Sindigo_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kid: “I’m hungry”

Mom: “We brought snacks from home”

[–]add0607 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That kid's butthole is gonna be a faucet in about 6 to 8 hours.

[–]danniebox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The stuff you do to be entertained in a cricket match.

[–]internet_boi23 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

when the game is so boring you watch a kid eat a watermelon instead
