christmas 2008

interstate sharing of mega-fun!

Last night, I was introduced to Ninja Warrior, which is the stateside version of a Japanese program called Sasuke. This is like, the hardest shit you can think of. Take the Eliminator from American Gladiators and multiply it by a thousand. All that really needs to be said is that two thousand attempts have been made at the course, and only two have been successful. G4 has the coverage nightly.

After that, I switched over to the Olympics, as it was nearly time for Michael Phelps to take a dip in the pool. After he and two other Americans took gold, I had this dropped on me:
