…It’s TGI Friday: Karoshi Suicide Salaryman?

Karoshi Suicide Salaryman

Karoshi (Japanese for “death by overwork”) Suicide Salaryman is definitely not your usual Flash game.

In this game many things are not what you’d expect and the goal of each level is counter-intuitive: you need to die.

There are 50 levels (and a boss fight at the end), and each level presents a new challenge. There will be several objects around you that you can use to get the job done, but their exact use won’t always be apparent. Plus, as the game progresses, it starts to break its own rules to keep things interesting.

Can you help your character to his ultimate demise, or will his survival signal your failure?

…Audi’s R8 GT3 is ready to race?

Audi R8 GT3

Go racing in style with Audi’s R8 GT3.

Designed to compete in rear-wheel-drive, GT3-spec racing, the R8 GT3 will more than likely break through the 500 HP barrier, as well as tack on a six-speed sequential sports gearbox, tons of carbon fiber bits and pieces, and the aerodynamic changes seen here. Due to GT3 rules, the suspension will more or less stay the same, but who’s going to complain about that?

…You can rally in a rental?

Rental Car Rally

Always dreamed of driving in a rally, but never had the car or the finances to do it?

Then check out the Rental Car Rally, a 36-hour race from NYC to Montreal that encourages you to rent a car, grab a friend, pay just $150 per team, and be on your way to automotive action and adventure.

All of the standard rally rules still apply (don’t speed, don’t kill pedestrians, etc.) but the financial burden is definitely lessened to let everyone get a shot at the action.

If you’re interested, check out the site for more information (and be sure to read the rules, since they were obviously written by someone with enough of a sense of humor to put on a rally made of rental cars).

…Royal Shrovetide Football is my new favorite sport?

Each year, the English town of Ashbourne gathers during Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday for a sport with one simple rule: Don’t kill anyone.

To divide up the teams, the townspeople simply group up based on where they were born. Those born north of the town river are the Up’Ards, and those born south of the river are the Down’Ards.

The field of play is three miles long, with a town mills on either end, and to score, a team must bang the custom painted ball against the wall three times.

So just how intense is Royal Shrovetide Football?

Well, to get ready for the game, all stores and shops board up their windows, and all cars are parked outside of city limits. In short: These guys mean business.

According to the rules, once the ball is in play, it’s basically a free-for-all towards one of the goal lines. Unnecessary roughness is “heavily frowned upon”, but besides that, it’s every man for himself.

A three mile long game of football with no pads, no rules, and town pride on the line?

…Cheese racing looks like fun?

Cheese Racing

Cheese Racing is a sport that was pioneered back in 1997, when someone discovered that processed cheese slices thrown on the BBQ will actually boil inside of their plastic pouches, inflating the bag and baffling the mind.

The rules are simple:

  • Each player throws a slice of cheese onto the BBQ.
  • The player whose cheese fully inflates first wins!

The CRASS (Cheese Racing Association) has a full set of rules, but if you follow those two, you’ll pretty much guarantee a fair fight.

Also, though their have been zero fatalities so far from cheese racing, you must keep in mind that this is an extremely dangerous sport, and not one that should ever be attempted indoors.

Gentlemen, start your cheese slices!
