Silicon Valley Fight Club

If Tyler Durden was a software engineer instead of a projectionist (or, if Michael Bolton directed his rage towards humans, and not copiers) the Fight Club that we love to pretend to emulate would probably resemble this.

According to the Gentlemen’s Fighters, there are, surprisingly, no rules. Just two guidelines: “One, do not grapple your friend. And two, do not bring him to tears.” Naturally, the geeks spend a fair bit of time whacking at each other with keyboards and dustbusters, and the mele-noobs wear sparing gear.

“In Silicon Valley we have the highest concentration of aggressive people in the United States. And it’s a place where all life has been reduced to working in a cubicle and then after work going out to have a Merlot at the Fromage bar. I’m kind of looking for something a little more primitive, a little more basic, something that appeals to the essential nature of a man.”

They’ll be in for quite the fisticuffs once Star Wars Kid gets wind of this.
