Anybody who follows me knows that I’m all about fitness, gamification, and especially the intersection of fitness and gamification. Add to that a bit of program design, and I’m already patient zero for @TheBioneer’s latest video, even before thinking about larping.
I just shared this with my brother, explaining that The Bioneer was responding to someone who had criticized his whole schtick:
I’m the first to admit that I don’t need to be able to climb a rope. Or sprint really fast. The average Joe just needs to be able to sit and type.
That’s why I coined the phrase “SuperFunctional.” I want to be able to do more stuff than is strictly necessary. Because it’s cool.
He called this “Larping as an Athlete.”
This is preposterous: I am larping as Batman!
Seriously, though. That’s what I’m doing.
My brother indicated that he understood, which made me think: We might all be happier if we thought of ourselves as larping at whatever we’re doing.
Best if we do it seriously.
