Cheese rolling, people crashing

I assume most people have heard of the annual cheese rolling event over in the U.K. But when I was telling some people about it the other day, they thought I was crazy.

No, I'm not. But the people competing?

Yes, yes, yes. Below is a link to some video of the latest edition of throwing yourself down a hill to chase a block of cheese.

Great quote from the story about it:

"I did absolutely no preparation for this."

Really? The only way I think you can prepare is by preregistering for your emergency-room visit.

Oh yeah. Don't try this at home. Or on a hill near your home.
