The Cannonball Record has been broken again. 27 Hours 25 Minutes
« on: December 08, 2019, 12:49:21 PM »

Three guys you've probably never heard of recently broke a speed record most people don't care aboutóthe New York to Los Angeles run referred to colloquially among aficionados as the Cannonball. Unlike most speed records and races, there's no sanctioning body or official rules. That's because setting a Cannonball record invariably involves breaking multiple traffic laws. In other words, it's illegal. But that doesn't stop people from doing it.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

How can you say never heard of! How can you say don't care!!

This is like the greatest, man/machine run/race/event in American history! Sort of.

But it is important, and ground breaking, and quite an example of sheer fossil fuel powered asshattery in modern America.
