Germanys Naked Sledding Competition

naked sledding

Ok, ok, I couldn’t resist.
The winter days are pretty gloomy and grey so why not lighten it up a bit? How ’bout a bunch of naked people going sledding?
From The Huffington Post:

“Next month, the German town of Braunlage will host the fifth annual Naked Sledding World Championship, and they’re actively looking for this year’s crop of clothes-free competitors.

To apply, you must be willing to strip down for a grueling, semi-naked race on a toboggan. You’ll be laying on your stomach and propelling forward with your hands (don’t worry– gloves are one of the few articles of clothing allowed) before a crowd of about 25,000 people. In the past, the top(less) male and female sledders each received about $1,000 in prize money.

Organizers of the last Naked Sled chose only 30 participants from a pool of roughly 5,000 applications. Apparently those who “look good naked” tend to get picked, and stipulations are a bit strict: historically, contestants were chosen only from Germany, Austria or Norway, and Brits are forming their first team this year.”

Looks cold enough to “freeze a witches tit” – and give the men “snowballs”…

    The Nations mentioned there don’t need the British in this.
    The only good that came out of Britain is:
    The Beatles
    and Jeff Lynne (ELO)

  • When Orcas Island Had A Sea Serpent
    May 1909, off the North Shore of Orcas Island, Washington State: “As Baker ran he saw the water begin foaming out past the reef, and the head of a huge serpent rose from the roiling waters. Ten feet and more of the monster’s head surfaced, and his undulating body rose in and out of the […]
  • Mixed Review: “Fault Lines” By Kruse And Zelizer
    It’s not often that I give mixed reviews, I usually select books that I am truly interested in. Additionally, I rarely quit reading a book I intend to review, but that’s exactly what I did with this book. I initially really wanted to read this book to reinforce my reckoning of news from my teen […]
  • Monkey Business: Two Very Different Bigfoot Books
    In these crazy times, I have had a need to take a break from political research. What I found is as informative and interesting as it is scary. That is, reading up on Bigfoot-Sasquatch, which probably for the same reason I found, has hit an all-time high public interest cycle. Bigfooters, or “Squatchers”, as they […]
  • Review: “How Fascism Works” By Jason Stanley
    I really appreciate when an author can boil complex ideas down to easily understandable concepts. “How Fascism Works – The Politics of Us and Them” by Professor Jason Stanley is just such a book. Stanley, a Yale professor has produced an examination of fascism that is reflected in the current state of American affairs. Fascism […]
  • Review: “Devolution” By Max Brooks
    People who read this blog have probably noted a change in the material I have reviewed lately. Recent subjects include: permaculture, radicalism in the 1970’s, pre-history revisionism, and yes, Bigfoot. The fact is, I am in a political burn-out mode and needed some breathing room with off-beat subject matter. Rarely do I read fiction, but […]
