I survived 37 minutes of Television

I turned on TV last night, and caught a little bit of

I Survived a Japanese Game Show!



Fucking awesome. I want more!

To win the SUPER-MAJIDE (which loosely translates to Super-You've-Got-to-be-Crazy!), dudes had to sit in high-speed spinning chair for a minute until they can barely stand, get on a tricycle and cross an impossibly narrow catwalk over ice cold water (they both fell in), sit on and break six giant eggs by sitting on them... then, covered in fake eggyolk.. crawl through an area filled with FLOUR, then scale a sticky wall with velcro hands, slide down a pole, eat three chewy chewy mochi balls, swing Tarzan-style through the correct breakaway door (out of three), and hit the finishing buzzer to win a quarter million dollars. Then you are attacked by the sadistic looking Congratulations Mob -- who look like yakuza gangsters but dressed in white.

It was awesome and I was thinking.. this is the first time in 5 or 10 years that I'm tempted to look up the listings and see when it's on again.

And, of course, it's all over.

Damnit!
