I love tests of body, mind, and spirit. Here are some I particularly enjoy.
- •The BicentennialDrinking 100 beers and running 100 miles in one week. Completed by University of Rochester Cross Country alumni Nick Roosa during his finals week of 2007. Possibly the most impressive thing ever done.
- •The cinnamon challengeEating a spoonful of cinnamon without choking or spitting any out. This one is actually very easy for me, and makes for a great party trick.
- •The 24/24/24 challengeDrink 24 beers and run 24 miles in 24 hours. I attempted this one with my friend and teammate Jamie after finals were over my senior year. I made it through the miles just fine, but after 13 beers had to call it quits. Jamie powered through though, which is why his name will live forever and mine will be soon forgotten.
- •The Gallon ChallengeDrink a gallon of milk in an hour. I've only attempted this once and threw up after drinking 13 out of 16 cups of whole milk. I'm pretty sure I could do it with skim milk.
- •StovehandSometimes when I'm drunk I challenge people to Stovehand. How it works is you put your hand on a pan, turn on the stove, and see how long you can keep it there. I'm not a smart man.
- •Thirst GamesBegins with the reaping. You are reaped to a district of a certain liquor. The particularly brave may volunteer for a certain beverage. Tributes engage in various challenges including the dreaded cornucopia in which tributes must battle their way out of a drinking game hell. May the odds be ever in your favor.Suggested by @clegg
- •Trek To MordorDrink a case of (lite) beer and eat a full buffalo chicken pizza while watching the directors cuts of all Lord Of The Rings movies in a row. It was attempted by Theta Delta Ki at Tufts and it drove men to absolute madness. Some groups played with "the one ring," a fifth of vodka split by all members of the party (usually four or five members)Suggested by @LevNovak
