Yesterday I went-karting with colleagues from work and funnily enough I started the day with Gore Vidal saying this on my iGoogle page:-
It is not enough to succeed. Others must fail.
I obviously went there thinking there’s no need to over-exert myself, but these chicken look ready for the plucking and I’ll pick these ducks off one by one as I tear round the track, wind in my hair and throaty engine roaring …….
And I obviously wasn’t the only one.
There’s something to be said about competing in a testosterone-charged environment. Namely, that there’s a lot of that testosterone about. An image from despair.com regarding goals kept coming to me, so I wisely stepped out of the way when the young ‘uns were barrelling around the circuit. I still got forced off twice.
A great evening out, and an unbelievable experience when the ground rushes past six inches below your nose. Everyone should try it. And I’ll be going back again.
