I’m pretty sure it’s not all right in adrianbrain

ESPN does a story (/video) entitled “Death Race” and I sort of want to do it. It’s about the annual tough guy race in the UK. Parts of the race include running through icy water and mud, running through hanging strips of wire, some of which are electrified and bounding over hay bales on fire into icy water.

At long last, we come to the final obstacle, the newly added Viagra Falls. To get there, we wade 30 yards in neck-deep water before climbing up the muddy hill and sliding down a slick tarp into icy water as course marshals use fire hoses to spray us. The hoses and subsequent dunking aren’t the worst part, though. No. After all we’d been through, the added wading to reach the slide just seems cruel.

Cruel and, well, unnecessary.

It’s a pretty well-written story and the video’s good too.

    This sounds like the sort of masochistic activity in which only Ody would have any interest. If you’re looking for someone to beat you, I’m sure that could be arranged without going through all the trouble of a race. Otherwise, it would be easier to prove your macho credentials by going to the gym and bench-pressing more than everyone else, and then maybe walking around half-naked outside.
