Man Of Ideas

As "the man of ideas that sometimes get donetm," I have many ideas that never get done. I've been thinking about some of those ideas lately, so I am going to list some of the more interesting ones.

1."The Crappy Chevy Cavalier Challenge", a race to doom using old Chevy cavaliers, first one to make it more than 4000 miles without fixing anything on the car wins. This race will have obstacles, and requirements, such as no updating of engine to make it run better, car must remain stock, but not necessarily in appearance. No oil changes or anything other than a gas fill up or two.

2. "The Greater Chicago Rickshaw Races", a rickshaw derby pitting teams of drivers and passengers against each other. Each team must build its own rickshaw, all rickshaws must be of a standard design provided by the organizers of the event.

3. "Urban fencing" think of a backstreet fight club but with fencing. Teams of fencers would face off against each other after the captain challenges the other team in a very public way, such as being slapped in the face at the opponent team captain's place of employment. All fights would be in back alleys and abandoned warehouses and sort of have a "highlander" sort of there can be only one feel.

These are but a few ideas, I'm sure I have more written down in a notebook or five, so I'm sure I will post them at some point.
