Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Pushing The Envelope, Part VIII:

The human being has always pushed the envelope into and beyond the realms of danger. This is the eighth of various weekend postings displaying how restless Man is with the mundane and how he purposely crosses the threshold into danger willingly -- and sometimes unwillingly.

Car: 2004 Ford Mustang Cobra, 550 hp.

Bikes: Triumph Speed Triples.

Drifting is one of those things I don't get...
I see the skill and artistry, but other than increasing the value of Goodyear and Bridgestone stock, is there a reason for it?

Not particularly. Drifting -- essentially an Oversteer condition -- is just a lot of fun.

And BTW, just like the movies, if you replay it, see and the PRACTICE skids all over the corners?
