The 2009 List!  
The 101

Since last year, The 101 list has been divided into five categories of similar tasks:

Show Your Balls
This isn't as porny as it sounds. We're talking balls in the figurative sense here. To complete this section, you'll need to have very little dignity, few morals and no sense of shame at all.

Construction & Creative
You'll need industrial strength cardboard and jumbo-sized novelty markers if you want to excel in this section. These tasks will be very helpful to boost your points on a rainy day.

Pain & Endurance
If you cringe at the thought of getting waxed, or couldn't stand to hold a giant bug for more than 2 seconds, you may not want to attempt many from this section. The majority of these challenges will begin with 'see how long you can...' and 'tell us how much it hurts to...'

If you think you can do these challenges better than anyone else, you'll probably focus on this section. The most important thing in the 'One-Uppers' category is QUALITY. To get a lot of points here, you need to put everything into your entry.

Opportune Moment
Finally, something to curb the over-enthused. These tasks can only be done at a certain time, be it midnight, christmas or at the time of a random stroke of luck. Read the challenges, you'll understand.

And finally...

In addition to these five categories, there's one final challenge (making 101 tasks) that you can only complete once you've done the other hundred. Think you can get that far?

If there's anything you don't understand, post a comment with your question - I'm more than happy to help you out. BUT! You. Need. To. Read. Everything! Especially the note above about the final challenge. If you don't, you're more than likely to get something wrong and we will laugh at you and you will be embarrassed.
