    Both of the events finalists -- Russia's Vladimir Ladyzhensky and Finland's Timo Kaukonen -- were rushed to the hospital after collapsing during the competition, in which contestants are made to endure temperatures of 230 degrees Fahrenheit (110 degrees Celsius) for as long as they can. Ladyzhensky later died.
    How could anything possibly go wrong here? I bet that half the contestants enter the wallpaper paste eating contest, as well.

    Water boils at 100 Celsius. Stick your hand in boiling water and see how that feels. Now 110 is even worse. Why someone would think this to be a good idea is beyond me. Some people were not meant for this earth.

    The pics on there look just like the chaps were dunked in stupidly hot scalding water, yet they voluntarily did this.. sheer madness.
