Drag racing has different meanings in different parts of the world apparently. Most people think along the lines of the “I live life a quarter-mile at a time” from Fast & Furious. However meanwhile in Holland things are slightly different.
Where it might lack the roaring of the engines it would certainly result in quite a few whistles and cheers from the spectators. When drag racing is done in this format it also lends itself to a lot of modification.

Yes, that is its name. I am just glad I don’t need to try and fill that in on a form!
It has other uses as well however… you can keep a crappy party going with the intro that this name gives.
Life is so hurried these days that it is very difficult to get around to everything you want to do. That is why some of the ingenious people in Scotland do a 3 in 1 when they go cycling.
You have to get your circus act unicycle practice in, play a little dress-up for the Star Wars marathon and of course pay homage to your heritage by wearing your kilt and practicing on the pipes.
The Mexicans are a very clever people. They did bring an evil like tequila into the world, but they do a very good hat.
It is a simple equation really: More son… more hat
You know when you get so upset that you just start burning cars and want to hit people with a cactus? Well I haven’t quite reached that level yet. But it happens… clearly.
