This is truly a landmark year for the CrossFit Games, and it’s been a demanding journey from the Open, to the Regionals, to the Games — top athletes from each of the included 17 regions worldwide have been narrowed down from hundreds to the fittest 40 men, 40 women, 40 teams, 40 teenagers and 200 masters.
A key element to a fair test of fitness is the unknown and unknowable. Athletes cannot train for what they do not know. At each CrossFit Games, the athletes engage in a series of challenges unknown to them until right before the competition. The combination of highly trained athletes and unknown events makes for an explosive mix. – CrossFit Games Online

I had my laser pointer out earlier today and used it to confuse my son for a little while. When that got boring, I fired up the ‘ol YouTube and had a look at other vulnerable young animals experiencing new things in this harsh world.
I’m confident you’ll enjoy this distraction as much as I did.
It’s been a trying year so far for our favorite in-house doctor – Dr. Jeff Wilson, PhD, of course. Besides his UX work for the team here at Applian, and the thousands upon thousands of videos and web clips he’s been through, Dr. Jeff has also been spending more time at home with his parents. Not really, but here, in preparation for some 4th of July family time, are a few things he’s learned about surviving a move back in with the parental units. Have some more salad.
We only ask because our own UX specialist, Dr. Jeff Wilson, PhD (whose IQ score reads like the top speed at a Formula 1 race) has just come up with his own handy intelligence test and it’s super easy: watch the video below and let us know how many of the jokes you understood. We know there’s quite a few smarties out there, so leave a comment or drop it on Facebook or Twitter.
A Quick PhD PS:Alas, Dr. Wilson is leaving the Applian team and moving back into science, but he has queued up some entertainment for the next few installments of our PhD series. We will miss him, but his humorous distractions will live on!
