The Japanese are famous for their extreme game shows on TV. Here is an example of the tracks the competittors need to finish on a TV program called Sasuke. This is their spring special aired march 21st 2007. It's quite amazing (and this is just the first level).
The website features more contestants and additional levels.
Implications - Without a doubt, being on this game show would be a moment in your life that you would never forget. Despite being absolutely absurd, it just looks like too much fun (both to watch and participate in). There should really be more shows like this all over the world for all people to compete in.
