I heard about this company in California that runs a program where you can pay to have them abduct yourself or one of your willing friends. Then they subject you to some form of mild psychological abuse so you can test yourself and see how you handle it. The whole thing sounds idiotic to me, but then again a lot of these weekend-long hellish adventure races through the desert sound idiotic to me, too. What’s going to happen soon is that someone who set up and paid for this service is going to be getting nabbed at the grocery store and then some police officer or vigilante will go after them. It would be such a difficult situation to explain at the police station, but it would also serve as a nice test for handling psychological abuse, so I wouldn’t expect to get your money back.
