He didn't lose a bet and he's not trying to get into a college fraternity. No, Stuart Kettell is a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support. He hopes this stunt will raise at least £5,000 ($8,443 USD) for that charity. To get the attention of donors, he's propelling a Brussels sprout up Mount Snowdon in Wales using only his nose.
Mount Snowdon is 3,560 feet high. On the first day, he managed to get 0.1 miles up the path in about 50 minutes. By the end of that experience, he was exhausted and the Brussels sprout had fallen apart. But Kettell is going to persist until a sprout is at the summit. That sounds hard and painful, but it has to be better than eating one of those nasty things.
