and this is different from their everyday life how exactly?

So here's a funny story I stumbled across today.  Apparently today, Times Square is  currently the site for the Movie-Watching World Championship.  The deal is this -- the competitors will spend the next 5 days in the "arena" where they will watch movies continuously in the hopes of breaking the world record of 120 hours and 23 minutes.  They get a 10 minute break between movies and they are not allowed to sleep or shut their eyes or even avert them from the screen.  They can get up and walk around, stretch their non-existent muscles, as long as they keep looking at the screen.  Why do this?  For a $10,000 cash prize, a lifetime membership to Netflix and a Netflix Popcorn Bowl Trophy.

Need more incentive?  Saturday the competitors will get a visit from none other than Richard Simmons who will stretch them out good before they sit their lazy asses back on the sofas.

Really?  How 'bout you go out and try some kiss some girls instead?  Seriously, you're in Times Square.  There will be a lot of them around.  They're the ones with the boobies.  Off you go.
