Thrudball 2011 Pain challenge

In 2011 I talked myself into doing a " Threndurance" Pain Challenge, in honour of how Japanese game shows have thrudlike competitors.

So the first challenge is for Ryan to fire Rotten Tomatoes from a Black Widow Catapult....oh, Ryans broke the catapult

Never mind Frank, I'll just throw them at you...8 misses later...can anyone else hit a barn door at thirty paces?

barn Door

Form an orderly Queue Please...Hey, Frank, where are the Stocks?

Hang on a minute, I dont even recognise half of these people, where did they all come from?

Formanorderlyqueue

This garcon came all the way from francais, and comes from a long line of frenchmen used to throwing things at l'Angliase"

Pah! Im not scared of anyone who thinks kermit has nutritional value...

Unfortunately this comment seems to affect his accuracy...

accurate

I get a plum tomatoe in the plums... Owch ....HA, missed BOTH my legs...

Some, like George, couldn't throw hard enough to even reach me, so ate the tomato instead...

Next cricket balls...

Cricket Balls

Bowled by the rather-too-accurate Dave Downes, NAFP...

First one just richocheted off my shin...

Next the elbow...Dave then tells me he plays cricket for the county...Bugger!

Elbow

Then the sharpshooter arrives with the bb guns...first some target practise...

targetpractise

He shoots me in the palm of each hand, then each individual finger...pain is building but bearable...

Funnily enough this BLOODY stings...

Then the nipples DONT try this at home (LIKE you'd WANT TO)

Next he finds the paintball gun and informs me the pellets are out of date so probably wont burst...which will hurt more...

outofdatepaintballs

The crowd request I'm paintballed in the back of the knee

backoftheknee

...which was particularly cruel, but funny to see me dance around...

cruelbutfunny

Not to be biased, he also shoots the front of my knee...

As the paintballs are solid, even firing from point blank range does not burst the buggers...they are like ball bearings...

FrontOftheKneePaintballsSOLID

Lets try a hard bony area...the elbow...no, still wont burst...smarts though

stillwontburst

'Time to introduce you to my little friend'...which fires 800 rounds a minute...

bfg

Worried, I ask will it hurt...he replies only about 800 times more than the pistol...oh good I say

hurts800XmorethanaPistol

READY...

READY

LOAD...

AIM ...oh and throw the pellet grenade at my feet first as a warm up, scattering 300 pellets into my groin and legs...

FIRE...the gun Purrrrrrrs into life...feels like a hyperactive Granny is stabbing me 12 times a second with a knitting needle...

FIRE!!!

He holds the rifle so steady, I start getting hit in the same place several times....the magnitude of my screams increases...

growingscreamsofagony

Soon I can take no more, and run cursing every obsenity known to man

cursingobsenities

But at least I have enough evidence of real suffering in the form of about a hundred welts...YAY...

100welts

Last challenge, MAN darts...the pro dart player bottled it so Al (who hasn't played darts in about five years) took a can of man-up, and stood in....

novicedartsplayer

He practised on a bag containing the rest of the tomatoes...and hit all three of them...reassuring...

You were TRYING to hit them, right? Errr...No...

practiseshots(was trying to Miss!)

Beginning to think this was a dumb idea now...DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME (OR ANYWHERE)

DUMBideaDONTtrythisathome

A few of the faint hearted in the crowd cannot bear to look...It's fine guys, I'm left handed

CannotLook

Al's first shot misses wildly (by about 4 feet)...well, he did close his eyes and get spun around...

missedbyMILES

Miraculously I survive a 12 dart finish with only a tiny nick in my finger webbing...

survived

Pain Challenges COMPLETED...now the hard bit, getting the sponsor money in...

All in all I raised the sum of £254 from this piece of madness...but on reflection considering how many it unsettled...

...Would not recommend anyone else does such a daft thing.....EVER!

Plus it BLOODY HURTS!!!!!!!!!!!!
