A sleek short about Silicon Valley office workers who beat the Sick Building Syndrome out of each other at an invite-only Menlo Park Fight Club. It's called "Uppercut" and this is what one of the guys had to say about his hobby:
“In Silicon Valley we have the highest concentration of aggressive people in the United States. And it's a place where all life has been reduced to working in a cubicle and then after work going out to have a Merlot at the Fromage bar. I'm kind of looking for something a little more primitive, a little more basic, something that appeals to the essential nature of a man."A sleek short about Silicon Valley office workers who beat the Sick Building Syndrome... more

In Sweden, a team of cops stormed a couple's home after a neighbor reported that five people were beating the crap out of a woman. Turns out they were all playing boxing on Kinect Sports.
At least I hope that's what Robert Johansson and his five friends were playing; otherwise they should have been arrested for possession of Fighters Uncaged. Anyway, no one was shot, no dogs were killed, no one's grandma was cuffed face-down on the floor. It's Sweden. They had a good laugh about it all.
"Things turned awkward when police showed up and wondered who was getting beaten, we felt rather stupid sitting there in the couch," Johannson said. Police said they regretted the misunderstanding but not their response. "When someone reports domestic abuse, we act immediately," a dispatcher said. "Luckily they were just having fun with video games."
