ok this item is on my bucket list. i want to go to england and participate in the cheese rolling competition. it is so funny and actually really dangerous as well. the hill is really steep that they roll the cheese down and people get really hurt every year. Have you ever seen or heard of this or ever been there. I know it sounds silly but looks like so much fun.

I am very familiar with the festival, which is reputed to be a several hundred years old tradition. It takes place in Gloucestershire, which is probably about 130 miles from my home. I have never actually visited the festival, although I have watched it a few times on television. It would probably be a very good day out because it is silly enough to be good fun. Britain may have lost most of the Empire and we are no longer a major world power, but we still lead the world when it comes to being silly.

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well i have never heard about this festival but after reading this discussion, i think it sounds pretty much interesting and i can gauge how much people would be enjoying being a part of this festival. But to be very honest, this festival might be dangerous as it is played on a hill so people have to be extra cautious while participating in it. What say?
