Honest question, what would you get from it? just a metcon hit? Heart rate and breathing up?

Pretty much, which I guess is a good thing for the kind of people who equate getting sore and sweaty with creating a useful stress/adaptation.

To derail the thread a bit, I like pushing into that metcon pain to be able to endure better under stress. I can not program which is why I follow the mainpage. Just kind of wondering why that gym would make a workout with those deads in it.

Heck, sometimes nonsensical WODs are just fun to do, regardless of the benefit (or lack thereof).

Certainly I'm in this for my fitness, but Crossfit is also playtime for me in a way. Hence, I don't really mind the occasional WOD that -- though it might not seem to make much programmatic sense -- takes my mind off of the day for a while, puts a smile on my face, and makes me glad that I'll probably never see it again.

I can agree with you here. I CAN'T program so I don't pretend to fully understand. But like you I love the workouts and find fun in almost all of them. I did 100reps deadlift at 225lbs once because I heard about it and just wanted to try it. I had no idea if it wass good for me or not, I just wanted to try it.

Oh and to get the thread back on topic. I think I did it tuch and go back then, now I would reset.
