Extreme Ironing

Salvaged from the old ATU site:

SADLY EXPIRED.

A priority for rebuilding, this one.

Mine, too.

It's good to revisit some old favourites: one positive result of the recent shipwreck.

Here we go, then:



Wiki:

Extreme Ironing (or EI) is an extreme sport and a performance art in which people take an ironing board to a remote location and iron items of clothing. According to the official website, extreme ironing is "the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt."

Part of the attraction and interest the media has towards extreme ironing seems to centre on the issue of whether it is really a sport or not. It is widely considered to be tongue-in-cheek.

Some locations where such performances have taken place include a mountainside of a difficult climb; a forest; in a canoe; while skiing or snowboarding; on top of large bronze statues; in the middle of a street; underwater; in the middle of the M1 Motorway; whilst parachuting; and under the ice cover of a lake. The performances have been conducted solo or by groups.
