Why do we gawk?


Drifting is like pornography, but it’s an even more ignoble form of gawking.

Drifting: Brazen violation of the product owner’s manual.
Porn: Human body lacks an owner’s manual.

Drifting: Waste of rubber.
Porn: No rubbers.

Drifting: Performer needs to employ aggression and yet restraint, lest the show end early.
Porn: Ok, ditto.

Drifting: Horrible wailing sound.
Porn: The same, but easily muted.

Neither pursuit would earn a prominent position on the resume of the human race, but you know what’s even more embarrassing? Gawking at other people’s incomes.

    5) drifting : smile until you go to sleep. porn : cry yourself to sleep. 6) drifting : cry all the way to the bank. porn : laugh all the way to the bank. 😀

    Drifting is the car equivalent of Hollywood action movies. A glorious wasteful display of potential power. Ok, that’s porn too.
