1200058806.jpgAnybody around the sports authority in Bangkapi TOMORROW is invited to come over to the track to watch the fifth annual 31 legged race sponsored by Honda.From about 9am to 3pm, 23 January 2010, many teams of 30 school children representing every far flung corner of Thailand will be competing in a freakish competition modeled after a 3 legged race.The distance is short, only 50 meters, and each team gets to "run" the distance two times. The winning team will probably cover the distance in about 8.5 seconds. Some teams will take nearly two minutes to cover the distance. It is sheer excitement! I was disappointed last year because it interrupted my running the day I happened upon it. But this year, I'll be ready for it and run later in the evening.

If the runners are allowed to make two attempts, doesn't that mean there are two legs?

In which case 2 legs x 31 legs = 62 legs

Is everything in Thailand more confusing than it needs to be?

NO Dave!!! That would be 62 legs squared! You didn't learn proper maths, which is why you ended up here with the rest of us "losers who can't make it in their own countries."

Well, whatever it is, they copied it from the Japanese, I'm sure.
