Extreme Ironing! Climb that mountain, then have a nicely pressed shirt for on the way down!

The VA refused to compensate me for my service related iron burns.

FYI, to the original poster, I was actually going to post this last week, but found it by searching for ironing (which otherwise is rarely discussed by the Mefi readers).

For what it's worth, this thread got more comments than the old one.

Believe it or not, "Extreme Ironing" is the answer to a new Trivial Pursuit question.

This is a fun idea - shame that it's a marketing initiative for irons manufacturer Rowenta.

That said, I was diving last year at Poseidon Divers in Dahab, Egypt. One of the extreme ironers was a female technical diver who purported to 'iron' deep underwater the week before I arrived. Anything that siphons money into adventure sports like tech diving and mountaineering can only be a good thing!

Werid. I searched for both "extreme ironing" and "ironing" since day one and nothing came up. Damn.

dmt, I followed the posted link just to investigate underwater ironing after you mentioned it. (Sadly, the shirts are not effectively ironed in the process.)

Try the google search, it is the sex as they say.
