Random Thought

I really hate Nascar.

Besides the fact that it's retarded and definitely NOT a sport, don't you think it's a pretty big waste of gas? I mean, we all complain that gas prices are so high, but people still demand to watch a bunch of drivers in inefficient cars drive in circles a bunch of times.

Such a waste.

Note to Self: And if I see another damn "JR" sticker on a car that just cut me off, I'm going to go jujitsu on their ass.

NASCAR is proof that there is entertainment for everyone -- even cousin-marrying, inbred, mouth-breathing, WWE wrastlin'-watching hillbillies who barely have a roof over their heads but spend a few hundred bucks to watch a bunch of cars drive in a damn circle for 3 hours on a SUnday afternoon while they suck down cheap beer like it's water.

Sornie - And don't forget the belly-scratching and pork eating.

CM - I know. Personally, I would get tired of doing it.

Hi MJ,

While I'm not a NASCAR fan, since I get enough of driving around in circles piloting my tractor, I would point out that, while the race cars do burn a good deal of fuel, the 100,000 or so fans watching the race aren't driving at all, thus saving a good deal of gas while they all watch the racers go around and around for hours.

Livin - I'll get right on that then.

Matt - Thank you.

MM - That would be true, except for all the miles they drive to get to the track probably makes up for that. Plus you have to take into account all of those "die-hard" fans who take those huge motor homes out there and spend the night before the race.

Mmmmmm. I'm not a NASCAR fan, but I wouldn't annoy the crap out of the lot of them. Some of them are pretty rabid...you could end up BEING the tailgate bbq.

I'm just saying. Watch your back.
