We all love cheese but risking your life behind a block of it is pure craziness. Cheese rolling is an annual event that takes place at Cooper Hills in England. A 3-5 kilograms round block of cheese is sent down from the top of the hill and the competitors start racing after it, down the hill. The first person to cross the line at the bottom of the hill wins the block of cheese. Since the block has a one-second head start and can gain speed up to 70 miles per hour because of the steep slope, it has the risk of injuring the spectators. Thus in 2013, it was replaced with a foam block and the winner was awarded the actual block of cheese.
