Did you go-karting?

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.

    Course you’ll be going back. We go every 6 months.

  2. I’ve never tried. I’m sure it would be hilarious for everybody else and possibly fatal for me! 🙂

  3. Recently i was told that there is a downhill slide after the initial high of a PhD. My take is “if I’m going down, I’m taking people with me!!”
