    Behind the evil that is Fear Factor

    Actually, this show lasted only half an hour and was interesting from the perspective of how tough they want to make it for the contestants.

    The FF Crew went to a lot of trouble to set up the Vegas show, especially the flag-grabbing slide down the side of the Luxor Hotel. They actually removed the glass panes and replaced them with a slick surface replete with cables, lights and cameras.

    The producers, director and crew have a sadistic streak and like to keep the contestants at a high level of fear. They deliberately keep safety ropes slack so that it will give one the sense of falling for longer than necessary. Joe gets to put in his two cents worth, and is not just a pretty face. All this for $50,000.

    I'm consistently amazed that anyone goes on this show for a 1-in-6 chance for $50k. Blows me away.

    So, since they went to all that work to make Luxor slide-able, I guess I can't try to convince the management to let me do it when I go there later this summer?

    I'd slather myself in lard and grease pig it down the Luxor's face. Who needs a special surface or lo-friction suit.

    WEEEEEEEEEEEE...!

    The odds are against me, but I'd so do Fear Factor for free!

    That's one stunt that looks like so much fun, I'd love to do it.

    Shoot, I missed this show. Let us know if you hear about them rebroadcasting it.
    Im haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.
