#10: Sandwich

The Earl of Sandwich was a distinguished military man and politician in 18th century England.

He was also a gambler who could spend 24 continuous hours at the tables. According to legend, rather than interrupt his play for meals, he ordered slices of cold beef between pieces of toast.

Others had what Sandwich was eating; and soon, in a sense, were eating him.
