Smart People Being Stupid Completed Events

The Tall Bike Joust

A diverse group of slightly misguided (but up for anything) people meet in a craft brewery's parking lot to joust on bicycles of double the normal height, raise money for a nonprofit bicycle shop that focuses on urban transportation equity, and to joyously celebrate life in all of its absurdity.

Cardboard Titanics:
Smart People Being Stupid

Not learning from their previous mistakes and folly, the scientists, doctors, lawyers, pilots, and piano teachers are back again to build, row, and race (and mostly sink) cardboard boats. The sequel to the original Cardboard Titanics. Named as it was because I considered it too riduculous to admit I had made a sequel to comedic short documentary.
