Some days I’m bored, but not that bored
(I’m jokingly putting this in the “Sports” category; this story just barely fits the description. Maybe getting into fights with soccer hooligans is considered sport by some, too.)
Some Silicon Valley engineers (unfortunately, none that I know personally, so I can call them up and rib them) are participating in something they call Gentlemen’s Fight Club. Donning a minimum of protective gear, they have 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 fights with rolled-up and duct-taped magazines, cookie sheets, Hello Kitty toilet seat lids… You have to watch the video to see just how that works (and be warned, if you’re squeamish: there’s a little blood). And then—and this is my favorite part—they have a guy in a tuxedo to do the after-fight interviews. Is there a vlog of this somewhere?
