Earlier today, Ken Block’s Gymkhana 9 went live, and Patrick George tweeted this:
Great idea. Please read the rest of this post in Werner Herzog’s voice.
“The car is us, spinning endlessly toward an end we cannot know, confined by a wall of the remnants of our frivolous travels through the cosmos.”
“The hubris of man is to create in the face of the approaching sea, which will one day swallow us all.”
“We are always racing the train of our own demise, passing in front of its approaching oblivion, until, one day, it catches us. We must ask ourselves, ‘is the train racing towards us, or is it us reaching for the train?’”
“We cannot hope to conquer our mortality; rather, we can only aspire to avoid the guardrail.”
“Okay, that was pretty fucking cool.”
