Nerve readers are too extreme for their own good.
Bravo, sirs and madams. You magnificent bastards did it again. Another week has gone by, be-livened by the near-superhuman achievements of Nerve Social members. We're just lucky you took time out of your busy schedules to tell us what you've been up to. Every time you log in to Nerve, you're asked "What did you do last night?" Here are some of our favorite answers this week.
