The human need to compete has never been more evident than in the new web sensation called iBeatYou.
The site definitely wins when it comes to number of ways to waste time online. You can find a competition for practically any “skill,” so to speak. Think you’re a staring contest champ? See how you stack up against other top competitors across the world. All you have to do is stare straight ahead for as long as you can without blinking, and record the action on your webcam. I used to do that for hours on end at my old job, just minus the webcam. Too bad this site wasn’t around back then.
Other popular contests include best photo of you with a celebrity (current winner: woman with the Backstreet Boys), hottest girl playing Xbox (an admirable category; Jessica Alba currently has the top-rated photo), best drunken photo (definitely will be some regrets from these competitors in a few years), and of course, best abs.
The list goes on and on. Basically, if you can think of it, there’s a contest for it. So, the question is, are you ready to step up to the challenge? If so, please post a link to your entry in the comments section below so the rest of us can mock you incessantly.
