Rooftop Challenges: Cinnamon Challenge

I recently got access to the roof of my apartment building.  I thought, why put the view to waste when I can bring friends to the roof to hang out.  At least, that’s what they’ll think.  But in reality, I’m going to make them crazy things.

This year, I’m going to pit my friends against myself over a series of silly challenges.  At the end of the year, we’ll see who is cooler.  Welcome to my new fun bi-weekly series called Rooftop Challenges.

First up, my friend Michael Logli from soccer.  We’re going to see who can survive the cinnamon challenge the longest.  I promise you, this is a hoot!

Asian Glow Pepcid AC Challenge

I have the Asian Glow and I have it bad.

For those of you who don’t know, the Asian glow is when someone who drinks alcohol turns red.  It’s concentrated in Asians, but it’s definitely not limited.  It’s because we’re missing an enzyme to digest alcohol.  It doesn’t mean we can’t drink, it just means we turn red.  Some have it have it worse than others.  But no matter what, a little bit of alcohol and we’re all flushed up.

My colleague Sergio heard of this legend that if someone with the glow takes a Pepcid AC 30 minutes before drinking, it will stop it from happening.  Do I believe this?  No.  However, for the sake of the internet (and me drinking), I took this challenge.

Watch the video and enjoy the results. 🙂
