Extreme ironing, an adventure sport for people who like laundry

Mystech: You have no idea how hot I find this concept.

(BoingBoing) Extreme ironing might be the coolest sport that didn’t make it into the Olympics this year. Started over a decade ago by UK knitwear factory worker Phil Shaw, it requires four simple criteria: a man, an iron, an ironing board, and a crazy natural environment that makes people think, holy crap I can’t believe he’s ironing on that thing! Shaw calls extreme ironing “the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt.”
