For me, at least, IT professional Steven Schkolne has to win a prize for being the bore of the week. Mister Schkolne spends his free time disentangling computer ethernet cables – for fun!
Not only Steven Schkolne finds this hobby fascinating. He has friends in Los Angeles who share his passion. So much so, Steven & Co are promoting it as a new sport, complete with competitions in unraveling tangled computer cables.
The first contest took place recently at a Los Angeles art gallery and was won by Matthew Howell, an ex-pizza dough tosser. He told the BBC unraveling cables had much in common with tossing pizza.
Frankly, I think they’re all a load of tossers.
Get a life, boys!
For puzzled American readers, the term ‘tosser’ is well defined by the British Urban Dictionary.
