Bizarre,absolutely friggin bizarre. :oh:

Finalist dies at World Sauna event in Finland.
I guess that counts as being boiled to death?

What a dumb competition.

"Thick man of Europe"

Strange and bizarre- indeed.
It makes me think that is how people die in a so called civilized society...not from war or hunger- but sauna competitions or badly organized "Love Parades"...bizarre and sad!
That is just plain crazy....not to mention suicidal!

Why can't they just have a curling championship or something??? ??? ???
Why would anyone do that to themselves?

Our temps have been hovering around 105 - 110 with the heat index so we don't a need a sauna here..... it is the south.
What a waste. :oh:
Its right up there with running with the bulls(go the bulls) and chasing cheese down a bloody hill, but people do all sorts of risky stuff for no good reason but love doing it, so in the end they end up dying doing something they love without hurting somebody else, better than overdosing or running someone over while drink driving or murder suicide etc

There's a well known humorous sportswriter here in the US that just recently published a book about the world's dumbest sporting competitions; the sauna deal was one of them and I remember reading this attached article just a couple of months ago. Wild; that's too bad :down:

PS He also ran with the bulls in Spain and wrote a very funny article about that as well> Welcome To Tramplona

My condolences to the family,
