Think you can eat a tablespoon of pure cinnamon?

I did.
While at lunch today Mike said he'd buy my lunch if I could eat a tablespoon of cinnamon without coughing or spitting any of it up, and without the aid of any type of fluid. And you know when a free lunch is at stake I am going to except the challenge.
The quick version of this story is that I last about 5 seconds before a mushroom cloud of cinnamon blew out of my nose and I went into a frenzy of coughing and spitting it all outta my mouth. To make the situation even worse, the cinnamon in my nasal passages caused my nose to to start bleeding. Luckily Steve brought me some water to help me wash down the remaining cinnamon.
Joel caught several photos of the whole deal, here are just a few:
New! Mike just posted a web page dedicated to today's events. Enjoy.

I had no idea cinnamon, by itself, is practically inedible...well, unless you want a choking fit. :)

I tried to do the same thing with the cinnamon. My manager offered me $100 to swallow a tablespoon of cinnamon. Instead of putting the spoon in my mouth, i just tilted my head back and dropped it down the back of my throat. Immediatly, i started coughing and cinnamon was coming out of my nose and mouth. My lungs felt like they just collapsed becasue i couldnt breathe and i thought i was going to suffocate. Finally, one of my co-workers handed me a cup of water. About 10 min later i went to the bathroom and the toilet looked like the trash can in the pics above.

I just did this challenge yesterday. Wow. I thought beforehand that it "couldn't be THAT bad...its only cinnamon." (aka "I'm an idiot.")
First I started choking so hard I really thought I would die, and then my throat and lungs burned extremely bad. I started sneezing cinnamon, and made myself throw up because I had such horrible indigestion from coughing so much. Ugh.

I did it successfully you pansies(about 4 hours ago)... for a measely $15 Canadian. Although I went through practically the same symptoms you all experienced... and I feel different now. I also once ate 4 pickled eggs in under a minute and won a bar tab for four hours. Try that one too, I think its harder.

Wow, that looks pretty nasty. Although, I think I've done worse. Once, on a dare, I snorted [yes, up my nose] a fat line of fresh ground chili powder. The following hour or so was ridiculously painful. Surprisingly, no nose bleed.
