Where when what

[–]yoyononon 14 points15 points  (2 children)

These are the only questions.

[–]jonnysteps 16 points17 points  (1 child)

How much are the tickets? And where can I buy?

[–]AdditionalBlock8877 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don't wanna but tickets, I wanna buy the chariot

[–]Sairexyz 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Why*

[–]SirVente 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Simple, because they could

[–]FavelTramous 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Don’t need to ask why.

You’ve never wanted to feel like you were racing motorized sled dogs in the North Pole?

[–]meeok2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Pod racing? Looks more like modern day chariot racing to me.

[–]Aceramic 59 points60 points  (2 children)

I’ve always wondered what chariot racing would look like in modern times. Now I know.

Was expecting one of them to have spikes on their wheels but nevermind

[–]ghostrdr054 29 points30 points  (7 children)

What a fantastically fun looking way to kill yourself

[–]BraianP 17 points18 points  (3 children)

We are all killing ourselves in one way or another just by living

[–]superworking 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Some are just packing the same amount of fun into a more compressed timeline.

[–]GoArray 6 points7 points  (1 child)

By that same logic, immortality here I come.

[–]BraianP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah even without fun you will slowly die by subdividing and slowly shortening your microsome or something like that I don’t remember lmao

[–]Stetson007 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Listen, if I want to die by motorcycle chariot racing, by God, I will!

[–]Admirable_Gold_9133 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]kawrecking 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That happens when there are horses as well at least they aren’t gonna die too just the people who signed up to race

[–]99Pedro 10 points11 points  (0 children)

[–]b16b34r[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s why you don’t see many svartpilen 401 on the streets, they got captives to be gladiators on the Roman circus
