Eat, drink and suck it out your tummy

Posted By on Tue, Jan 22, 2013 at 9:36 AM

Remember Sissy Hankshaw in Tom Robbins' novel Even Cowgirls Get the Blues? In one scene (as I recall) she fantasizes about a machine that will let her eat continually without suffering any consequences.

Well, that machine is almost here! It's called the AspireAssist. Eat your gluttonous fill, hook up the portable machine to the port in your abdomen, and suck out 30 percent of your tummy's contents.

The device, nicknamed the "Bulimia Machine" by skeptics, is already available in Europe, but is undergoing trials here.
