We’re all currently busy not sitting in the stands. Everything sport-like is closed down. I heartily approve, but not as a temporary measure. They’re thinking of having the NFL play in empty stadiums so you can watch it on TV and sneeze at home. But your couch is just the stands. We should refuse to go back to the stands, period.
These fellows in the video aren’t watching racing. They’re racing. Hell, even quarantined kids racing on their gaming consoles are doing something, instead of just watching something. Everyone should build go karts if they can (it’s not that hard, I’ve done it), and race them. We should all play baseball with our neighbors again. Amateur sports shouldn’t pay. All the ringers should be sent home from college, to let students play against each other again. Drafting college kids to play professional sports should be banned. Let pros fend for themselves.
Let’s do things, not watch things. We did it before. We can do it again.
Why isn’t this “a thing”? If it is a thing, I didn’t know it’s a thing. If it is a thing already, I apologize for not knowing it’s a thing. If it’s not a thing, I demand that it become a thing, pronto.
Honestly, axe throwing is a thing. Escape rooms are a thing. Talking on social media about pizza or tacos like they were caviar and Dom is a thing. They’re not nearly as cool, if you will, as ice kart racing. Of course the video is from Russia, where they have ice on July 4th at noon. But gentlemen, we cannot afford an ice kart gap!
(Thanks to longtime friend of the BSBFB, Charles Schneider, for sending that one along)
Ya gotta love subcontinent engineering practices. Welding in sandals and grinding barefoot. But somehow or another, they end up with a finished product that three teams from American Chopper couldn’t beat. And when the cops come (with shoes, but no socks), they just ask for a test drive.
You have to love Colin Furze. He understands the zeitgeist. In today’s entertainment world, acting zanier than Guy Fieri on diet pills and 4 Four Lokos is essential to getting noticed. Colin touches the lens with the end of his nose while yelling, because that’s how you climb the greasy pole of online notoriety. Unlike most other YouTube channels with wacky wildmen zoo creature in your face tattooed love boys, Colin also gets stuff done.
