500 Mile Distraction

May 7, 2016

“Exciting shit, that’s why I watch auto racing, I’m waiting for some accidents man. I want to see some cars on fire. I don’t care about a bunch of redneck jackoffs driving 500 miles in a circle children can do that, for Christ’s sake, doesn’t impress me.”

George Carlin

Like football,  auto racing is mindless distraction. Plus, if you like paying for shit twice, its a good gig, perhaps not twice, but extra.

Upon examination,  that looks like corporate socialism,  circumstantialy getting others to help pay for your distractions.

Consider that the products bought,  that are advertised on the hood, or the fender, jacket,  helmet,  roof,  door,  walls,  tires, windshield,  plus the commercials on tv. placed in between the drivel dialogue, the price must be increased to raise the revenue of its product or service to afford the sponsorships.

Don’t have to go too many times “around the track” to figure that out.

(Drivel dialogue,  you know if the driver of car 54 can work his way through car 69 and 77, around the corner then, blah blah blah blah blah blah, from the “color commentators”. )

Notice it is “his way” ? Where are the female drivers?  Or speakin of “color”, seems to me the only black on the track are the tires.

Corporate enslavement,  racing further down the spiral.

You are the target of,

Corporately Quadruple Dipping

Stadium revenue
Product revenue
TV ad revenue
Licensed product revenue

No sense complaining without offering an alternative. Otherwise it’s only complaining.

Here are some options.

100 miles each

Traditional forward left

Forward right

Reverse right

Blind folded

Reverse and blindfolded

See how well the radio people in the pits could actually direct the drivers through these new obstacles. Putting our human communication skills to the test

Then when those have reached their peak and become repetitive,  switch it up again or abandon it, as a realization that it no longer serves our collective evolution.

Consider that without radical significant sweeping changes,  the only thing that is occurring is the tweaking of Pavlovian mediocrity.

So unless a car shows up today and goes twice as fast,  and even faster in the turns, defying the natural laws of gravity and physics,  then it is basically the same thing,  over and over and over and over and over again.

Bringing our collective evvvv ooooo looooo shuuuuun to a craaaaaaawllllllll.

“I want to be a race car passenger: just a guy who bugs the driver. Say man, can I turn on the radio? You should slow down. Why do we gotta keep going in circles? Can I put my feet out the window? Man, you really like Tide…”

Mitch Hedburg

  1. This is why a driver’s why should never be a bitch because a driver has nothing but time – time to think about all the stupid shit she batches about and whether or not he could trade her in for a newer model!


  2. Driver’s wife, not “why”
