Burn Out or Refuel, Part 1

Sunday, January 5, 2014 

If you really want to waste some time on the internet one of the best ways to do so is to point your web browser to Youtube. Depending on your taste, you can find plenty of entertaining time wasters. With a simple Google search you can discover the latest cute cat video or a humorous video of someone who thinks that they are a better dancer than they really are, or - even better, the video record of someone’s massive lack of wisdom or common sense. Falling into the last category is something called an “epic hardcore burnout” which involves someone in a rear-wheeled vehicle standing on the gas and brake pedals at the same time to get their drive wheels spinning in place. When you do this long enough smoke ensues and some rubber is laid down on the road. When you do it even longer, smoke may envelope the rear of the vehicle as the tires keep spinning in place. When you push it to epic, hardcore levels you stand on both pedals long enough to shred the tire and generate sparks as the tire rims grinds into the asphalt. If you have someone record it and upload it to Youtube you will likely get a ridiculous amount of views to compensate you for the destruction of your tires and rims and the doubts raised about your common sense.
