This might only be hysterical to those of us who play online games, but I stumbled onto a site that encourages household chores with MMORPG rewards (think Everquest, World of Warcraft, yadda yadda yadda). It’s called Chore Wars. Of course, the idea is predicated on the belief that people will be motivated to complete tasks if they are given imaginary shiny rewards like a +4 spatula, a golden plunger, etc. And of course, those of us who play those games have proven how eager we are to do just that.
For those of you who are similarly motivated, check it out.
