I’m weird. My favorite part of this video is the soundtrack that was obviously composed for drive-in movie intermission music. Of course the drag racing is lots of fun, too. Drag racing is really silly. You build this really elaborate machine to go in a straight line for a quarter mile. That’s a long run for a short slide, as they say. But so what?
Is building drag racers any sillier than building a Saturn V rocket? All the rocket does is go to the moon. Why do we want to go to the moon? To take a few pictures like we were at Niagara Falls or Luray Caverns or something. We went for shiggles. We went because we went, that’s why. It’s the same reason we want to get to a stripe on a long, thin parking lot one-tenth of a second faster than another guy. Guys. We do things because we do things.
