Every time I’m flying, I kill time in the departure lounge by finding the bookshop and buying one book. My choice this time was Ready Player One, a novel from 2011 by Ernest Cline. While I wouldn’t describe myself as being a big Science Fiction fan, I gleaned from the blurb and reviews on the back that two of my favourite things played a big role in the story; video games and 80’s pop culture, that was enough to peak my interest and risk the purchase.
This week I was finally able to view a documentary that has been firmly at the top of my must see list since I first heard about it at the start of the year. At first glance, Tickled is a light-hearted look at what may be the most ridiculous “competitive sport” known to the world; Competitive Endurance Tickling. Grab a team of guys, tie one of them down and tickle him until he submits, easy peasy.
