The AP has a story about a real-life Fight Club in Silicon Valley, a notion I find pretty funny, given the average physique of a techie. I can just see the billing: "The undercard fight tonight: Clash of the Michelin-Men ! And the title bout ... Stick Figure versus That Guy Who Keeps Talking About Kernel-Mode Network Drivers". I suppose that's why they resort to "Kicking, punching and swinging every household object imaginable -- from frying pans and tennis rackets to pillowcases stuffed with soda cans" -- it's difficult to hit somebody hard enough to make an impact when the only exercise you get is typing [although maybe that might lead you to develop the Fast-Typing Fingers of Death technique ...].

Oh, and I suspect the guy who skipped his first wedding anniversary to attend a fight got a taste of the real Fight Club when his wife heard about the reason he skipped their anniversary.
