Need Something To Do Thursday?



When it comes to Schadenfreude, it can be tough to tell if the queasy feeling in your stomach is one of sadistic pleasure or a spasm of empathy. In the case of a flesh-reddening belly flop, hearing the smack of skin on water is pure sadism.

Today The Lift is hosting Crooked Fence's Belly Flop-Off, which is exactly what it sounds like. Participants leap, gut-first into an inflatable pool. The best flop in the guys and gals divisions gets a $75 bar tab. Every flopper gets a Crooked Fence T-shirt.

Sign-ups are free and begin at 5:30 p.m. The competition gets going at 6:30 p.m. and you'll be icing your chapped, crimson frontside by midnight.
