Chill/No-Chill: Overdosing on Olive Garden Pasta for $4k

How much would you pay for an endless supply of spaghetti, ravioli, and lasagna?  For some eager overeaters on eBay, the answer is $4,200, shelled out for the Olive Garden "Pasta Pass." 

The restaurant chain famous for its breadsticks that are nearly as addicting as crack cocaine, sold the "Pasta Passes"––which grant passholders seven weeks of unlimited pasta, soft drinks, salad, and said crack-bread-sticks––in limited quantity, 21,000 for $100. Demand surged, and the supply was exhausted in less than one minute. A pasta pass black market has reportedly emerged via eBay, with passes selling at a 4,100 percent markup.

Would seven weeks of gluttony and marinara be the ultimate, most chill munchie dream of all-time? Or is the pasta pass really just excessive eating and aggressive marketing, therefore no-chill?
