A couple of years ago, USA Today had a piece where they consulted with experts to figure out the Ten Hardest Things To Do In Sports. Stock Car racing (i.e. NASCAR) was one of them. It gets up to 130 degrees in those cars, and you're pulling a couple of G's in the turns, and at those speeds you need to react instantaneously....

Pretty much all of Brighton Beach in Brooklyn used to be a HUGE race course back in the 1800s to 1908. Then it became a motordrome. And then I think it became a small race track later on. Long story short, the land around there have spots of toxicity to this day. And hey! I played in them as a kid! Whee!!!

And I watched NASCAR as a kid in the 1970s and grew up in in NYC.

Also: yeah, I'm sure you have to be there.

I remember the first time I went to a drag race.

When you see film of a drag race, you see some cars and some tire smoke and they go down the track.

When you attend a dragrace... when it's time for the first top fuel cars to go, you see them near the line, they warm up the tires and putt putt back to the line... everybody waits for the lights to go...

and THE WORLD EXPLODES, waves of sound hit your whole body... and by the time you regain your senses the cars are gone, crossing the quarter-mile line.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/9/18 7:58pm JakeGould:

“Ballet originated in the Renaissance court as an outgrowth of court pageantry in Italy, where aristocratic weddings were lavish celebrations. Tutus, ballet slippers and pointe work were not yet used. The choreography was adapted from court dance steps. Performers dressed in fashions of the times. For women that meant formal gowns that covered their legs to the ankle.Early ballet was participatory, with the audience joining the dance towards the end.”

BALLET HAS ROOTS IN RICH ITALIAN PEOPLE DANCING!!!!
